Firenze, Florence, Italy
Four Seasons Florence
What it is
An ornate Renaissance-era palazzo and convent that’s now a showstopping stay, with a Michelin-starred restaurant.
What it isn't
Soulless. Just outside your door: the hotel’s own 15th century walled private garden, with views of the Duomo.
What we think
We want our last meal—and last hotel stay—to be right here. Because when it comes to rolling out the red carpet for guests, Four Seasons Hotel Firenze has thought of *everything* (truly, *everything*), and every single moment you’ll have here will be cinematic. Take the al fresco pool, which looks like a setting from a Jane Austin movie (was that Colin Firth?). Or the spa, set overlooking the botanical gardens, where treatments include 24-carat gold facials and salt and green tea exfoliating massages. Guest rooms are just as stunning; even the “starter” room category is a vision of Renaissance-era style, with a marble-lined bathroom, soaking tub and downy king bed that’s ideal for evenings in enjoying your ensuite flatscreen and DVD player. To truly indulge, book the 2,518-square-foot Royal Suite; it has vaulted ceilings that were painted with frescoes in the 17th century.
You're here because
The hotel has an even more exquisite hotel within the hotel, La Villa, with 37 rooms and pro butlers attending to your every whim.
You’ve had your share of Michelin-starred dinners, but Il Palagio has transcended to another level. One bite of your fregola pasta with pumpkin, scallops and green lemon and you may never come back down to earth.
