Located just north of the Ponte Vecchio bridge, this Top Secret Hotel is the perfect choice for guests seeking to be in the midst of Florence’s historical and cultural heart. The Ponte Vecchio is world renowned for its unique medieval structure and the line of shops that have been built into the bridge itself. Formerly used as butcher’s shops, the shops are now home to souvenir sellers, art dealers and jewellers that are very popular with the passing tourists. The area surrounding the bridge is also populated with many chic Italian boutiques and high-end fashion stores making it ideal for tourists and lovers of luxury Italian design.
Just across the bridge south of the River Arno is the vast Palazzo Pitti, a sprawling Renaissance palace built and lived in by generations of Tuscany’s aristocracy. The entire palace is open to the public and as well as opulently decorated Royal Apartments, the palace is also home to a period costume gallery, silver museum, carriage museum and several prestigious art collections. Surrounding the palace are the beautifully maintained Boboli Gardens which are ideal for family days out during the warmer summer months. The park features ornamental ponds with water fountains, 17th century sculptures and a Roman amphitheatre.
The hotel is also within walking distance of arguably Florence’s most iconic sight, the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore or Florence Cathedral. Famous for its imposing dome which dominates the city skyline, the basilica as well as Giotto’s Campanile and the Baptistery enjoy UNESCO World Heritage site status and attract millions of tourists each year, making it one of the most popular attractions in all of Tuscany. Thrill seekers may wish to climb the multiple sets of stairs spiralling up to the dome itself for a vertiginous but unrivalled view over the city of Florence and its surrounding countryside.
