About a 10-minute drive from the center of Florence, and there’s a chauffeured car to take you there
True Florentine grandeur: gilded mirrors and stucco, frescoes, marble statues and silk-draped four-poster beds
Manicured grounds with fountains and a white stone pool surrounded by statues
Full-service subterranean spa, including a hammam
An indoor gourmet restaurant, Il Pacha, and from May until October another restaurant overlooking the pool and the gardens
What To Know
Opulent decor throughout — not the choice for minimalists
If you want a view of Florence, get a room on the top floor; below that the city sights are obscured by trees
The pool is closed from November to April
The wallpaper and fabrics in many of the rooms have an abundance of roses (a nod to Empress Eugénie’s fondness for the flower), so if florals aren’t for you, request a rose-free room
