Set on the third floor of an elegant mid-century palazzo in the center of the city, this small luxury hotel in Florence is just just steps from the Arno River near the stately palazzos and historic Teatro dell’Opera.
With just four suites, it’s an intimate and visually stimulating hideaway with a striking jungle theme, an extraordinary collection of art and furnishings, finely crafted woodwork, and finishes by Ralph Lauren and La Croix alongside mid-century classics.

Tuscany’s capital city is at the heart of Italian identity. Birthplace of the Renaissance, it’s an enchanting and timeless city and a feast for the senses, the palate and the spirit. Compact and densely packed with some of the world’s greatest masterpieces of art and architecture, the city’s character and appearance has changed little in hundreds of years.
A UNESCO site richly blessed with some of the world’s most iconic and priceless works of art, no visit is complete without a pilgrimage to The Galleria dell’Accademia for Michelangelo’s “David,” or The Uffizi Gallery for a view of Botticelli’s “The Birth of Venus” and da Vinci’s “Annunciation.”
The river Arno snakes through town, where the famed Ponte Vecchio divides the town into two distinct halves. The less crowded Oltrarno on the left bank includes the Palazzo Pitti and Piazzale Michelangelo from where you’ll have breathtaking views of the city.
Close to the San Lorenzo market for authentic products from local producers, and in an area full of excellent restaurants and traditional taverns at the center of one of the most fascinating and important cities in Italy.
