Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love It

  • It's an exclusive bolthole with a tranquil location & pretty grounds

  • Views from the rooftop terrace are unbeatable
  • There's a heated outdoor pool, a swanky restaurant & funky bar

"Panoramic, postcard-worthy views" -- Travel + Leisure

Map & Directions

The hotel is 20 minutes by taxi through the city from Florence Airport, although the journey will take longer in heavy traffic. By public transport the journey takes longer. Buses depart to the Piazza Stazione from the airport every half an hour and it’s a 25-minute journey. From there, take a number 12 or 13 bus to Piazzale Michelangiolo, 10 minutes' walk from the hotel. The second leg of the journey will take just over 20 minutes.

With an unrivaled position on the Piazzale Michelangiolo, the Villa La Vedetta is a real find in a tranquil location, featuring "postcard-worthy views of the Duomo from the terrace", says Travel + Leisure. A 30-minute stroll will take you to the cathedral and a free hotel shuttle service to the city centre makes sightseeing easy.

The hotel may be a little off the beaten track, but the peaceful grounds, helpful staff and stupendous views make it a real find. Guests can lounge in the secluded gardens or take a dip in the heated outdoor pool (open April-October, 9.30am-6.30pm), and there's a swanky poolside restaurant, known for its rich wine list and innovative take on Italian fine dining. It's only open for lunch and dinner (12.30-2.30pm and 7:30-11pm), but the ultra-modern bar offers all-day snacks, as well as cocktails. Don’t miss the rooftop terrace -- the views are unbeatable.

Dating back to the 1800s, the décor is a mix of the traditional with modern touches such as internet TVs. It's also very exclusive -- there are only 18 rooms, all with Jacuzzis and marble bathrooms. Each is decorated with sumptuous silk taffeta drapes and matching velvet bed spreads, and some have 4-poster beds. Try the Bellavista Suite, a luxurious 2-storey space with huge picture windows and panoramic city views.

From the press:

  • "In welcome counterpoint to the old-world elegance and high standards of service are twenty-first-century flashes of contemporary art, and big TVs with Internet access" -- Condé Nast Traveler

  • "Sumptuous rooms, a superb restaurant, a stellar staff, and unbeatable views of Florence below are the reasons to splurge here" -- Fodor's
