CONTINENTALE HOTELFlorence, Tuscany
ENCHANTING & ELEGANT
If you haven't already been seduced by Florence, a stay at this incredibly stylish and welcoming hotel will ignite your love affair. Bang in the heart of the city, whether you wish to appreciate the spectacular views, sip cocktails from the rooftop bar, or explore the vibrant area, this glamorous hotel - with a chic vintage vibe - is the place to be.
Florence is the perfect city to explore in a weekend and now's your chance to do just that in style. The team at Continentale have put together a special three night package including cocktails in the hotel's roof top bar, a gourmet dinner for two and lots of other welcoming touches. Rates starting from €285 (+taxes) per night depending on the room you choose.
Part of the Ferragamo family's range of properties, the Continentale Hotel is a re-design of a 14th Century building located just footsteps away from Florence's impressive Ponte Vecchio - the oldest of Florence's bridges. There's an awful lot to see from some of the hotel windows (especially the penthouse suite on the top floor, where you can lie in the bath and see all around) and its rooftop bar, which overlooks Ponte Vecchio and the River Arno is the ideal spot for a cocktail.
It's ideally situated for exploring Florence; the Ufizzi Gallery, the Accademia Gallery, the Duomo Museum and - for when you need a breather from art - a fantastic array of shops selling everything from luxury fashion brands to handicrafts and antiques are very close. Superb restaurants are everywhere, as are cool cafes for the all-important sport of people watching, while sipping an espresso. Plus, if you wish to explore further afield, outside the city, perhaps for a spot of wine tasting, the hotel's concierge is more than happy to oblige. Getting to the hotel from Florence airport is about 10km and takes about 20 minutes in a taxi. The main train station (Firenze SMN) connects to other cities in Italy and Europe (Rome is approx 1 hr 35 mins away). When you're at the hotel, your best bet is to walk or ask the hotel to arrange a taxi.
