The hotel’s roof terrace gives breathtaking views over Florence. During the summer, guests can relax after a day’s activities with a drink whilst enjoying panoramic views of the city and the surrounding hills or enjoy a romantic candle-lit dinner served by their own waiter.

A variety of services are on offer from the 24-hour concierge service. This specialised guest care service can help with limousine transfers, flight changes, museum visits, gallery and theatre tickets, restaurant recommendations and reservations and private tours of Florence.
