With Ponte Vecchio on the doorstep, guests can appreciate Florence in all its beauty without having to compete with the crowds, yet a quick hop over the bridge and the history of Florence is all there.
Situated on the left side of the River Arno in between the Ponte Vecchio and Ponte St. Trinita, the location offers the best of both worlds.
Hotel Lungarno was the first Ferragamo hotel to open, and the designer background is inherent in its stylish and contemporary décor. The 73 rooms, including 13 suites, ooze elegance with French beds, marble bathrooms and antique furniture. The views over the River Arno and Ponte Vecchio aren't bad either.
The hotel boasts an impressive art collection, which includes over 400 works by the likes of Picasso and Cocteau. After a day of exploring the city, the Picteau Bar serves delicious cocktails perfectly complemented by the art that adorns its walls. Restaurant Borgo San Jacopo serves up good quality Tuscan specialities in a dining room overlooking the river.
Why we love it
The impressive art collection makes Hotel Lungarno the perfect hotel for art lovers who can't quite face the crawling queues of the Uffizi, or are after a more modern fix.
