Festive Florentine Favourite

Florence is truly magical in the winter, with its twinkling shops and festive street markets, making it a perfect city escape this Christmas.  

Situated in the heart of the city, just a few steps away from the historic duomo, and the city’s main square, Piazza della Signoria, Brunelleschi Hotel is not just any luxury hotel in Florence, it’s the hotel to stay in. You’ll be swept away the minute you arrive, as you discover the impressive structure that’s composed of two ancient buildings, an iconic sixth century circular Byzantine Pagliazza tower, and an adjacent medieval church, known as San Michele.

While entirely sympathetic to its original founding features, Brunelleschi Hotel received a complete refurbishment in 2019, so that classical and contemporary design perfectly intermingle. Stay in any one of the 96 rooms and suites, some of which boast breath-taking views of the Duomo. If you’re travelling with your family, then interconnecting family accommodation is also available.  

When you’re not exploring Florence’s streets, you can observe the hotel’s own private collection of Roman remains or enjoy a cocktail or two in the stylish bar.

Brunelleschi Hotel is home to two exceptional restaurants, and dinner is often a memorable highlight of your stay. Head to the two-starred Michelin Restaurant Santa Elisabetta, which boasts just seven tables in the exclusive and elegant setting of the Byzantine Pagliazza Tower. For a more informal setting and traditional Tuscan cuisine, dine at Osteria Pagliazza. Stay over Christmas and New Year and tuck into traditional festive menus that are served up in the hotel’s unique medieval celebration halls. You might like to join the special gourmet New Year’s Eve Gala Dinner too.

There’s so much to do in Florence during the winter. Venture to Uffizi Gallery, or regale on the beauty of Michaelangelo’s David at the Accademia. Revamp your wardrobe with Italian designer labels in the New Year Sales, which run from January right through to February, or book a wine tasting experience in the nearby Chianti Hills
