Are you looking for a charming stay, a gorgeous property and a hilltop appreciation of Florence? Search no further… Hotel Il Salviatino was a truly perfect hotel experience in our most recent stay. It is a property that dates back to the 15th century, meticulously restored some years ago, and converted into a magnificent hotel that embeds the quintessential class and style of Firenze and its Renaissance traditions (without being too overloaded). This historic building is formally located in Fiesole, just a 15 minute drive to Florence’s city center and its main attractions. Surrounded by enchanting colorful gardens and lime trees, it sits on a hill with breathtaking views of Florence and the charming Tuscan valley. Greenhouses scattered around the property have become glorious glass suites and very elegant rooms, with individual designs and first class Italian linen. If possible do book a room facing the landscaped gardens or with panoramic views to the city and its stunning cathedral. A spa, an outdoor heated pool and an excellent restaurant (try eating at the terraces) add to the allure. If you are traveling around Tuscany with a car this hotel becomes quite convenient since there is onsite parking. You do not have to worry about driving to the city either, Il Salviatino offers a complimentary shuttle.
