What is the best luxury hotel close to the Duomo?

The Finest of Florence

Florence (Firenze) is a feast for the senses. It is a treasure trove of art and architecture; a feast for the eyes. Italian food and the fine wines of the Tuscany region are epicurean delights. And, Florence's rich history and present day festive and friendly ambiance are a feast for the soul. Echoes of the past are everywhere in Florence. A leisurely stroll along the Arno River and across the Medieval Ponte Vecchio offers views that haven't changed much in hundreds of years. As the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, it is said that almost half of the artists working in Europe in the second millennium lived in Florence; that is still true today. It is not difficult to imagine Michelangelo, Boticelli and Leonardo da Vinci at work among present day artists. However, Florence cannot be seen in a day. The sheer multitude of must-sees is overwhelming and the inevitable waits for entrance to leading museums, the Duomo and other monuments are frustrating for many travelers.

Travel editors and savvy travelers recommend choosing an Italian luxury hotel that is centrally located and a hotel that can expedite long lines and tour buses to exploring the treasures of Florence. Hotel Savoy, a member of Leading Hotels of the World's five-star luxury hotel collection, is located in the heart of Florence with magnificent views of the Duomo from many rooms. It is also just steps away from the Galleria Uffizi and Ponte Vecchio. Contemporary guest rooms and suites at Hotel Savoy offer a soothing respite from the crowded streets of Florence. Business travelers appreciate the conveniences of a comprehensive business center, meeting facilities and and broadband Internet access. Hotel Savoy is also a family-friendly luxury hotel. A myriad of details and special treats make travel with children a pleasure. And, from chauffeured transfers to advance bookings for the Galleria Uffizi and privated guided tours, the Hotel Savoy concierge team takes care of all the details of seeing Florence at its best with no long queues and tour buses. Not to be missed: watching day break or a golden sunset wash over the city from the comfort and privacy of Hotel Savoy.
