A modern design hotel built on comfort and eye for unique details. That’s how Continentale Hotel in Florence can best be described. Come inside for a quick glimpse of one of the most intriguing design hotels in the Tuscan capital.
First of all: what are the reasons to visit Florence? Probably too many to list here, but I’ll give it a go anyway:
- Florence is the birthplace of the Rennaisance, so whether you’re into cultural sights, art or history – you need to visit this gem of a city! Did you know that the historic city center is deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site?
- Florence is the capital of Tuscany, which is often referred to as ‘the most beautiful region in Italy’. Also, it’s pure paradise for foodies – AND, it’s the home of the Chianti wine. Need I say more?
- Florence is a must-see for art lovers. Due to its connection to Rennaisance, you’ll find several world famous galleries and museums here, e.g. the Uffizi Gallery, which hosts some of the most spectacular art ever produced!
- Florence is also well-known for its many festival throughout the year, and you’ll definitely be able to find one traveling for! I’ll mention a few: the Carnevale in February, the Gelato festival in April, the Pitti fashion fairs during the year and the popular Festa della Rifficolona (paper lantern festival) in September.
Italian design and lifestyle
So once you’ve decided to go, why not pick a hotel that fits right into your program of exploring and enjoying the good life? May I suggest the four-star Continentale Hotel, which is located just 15 minutes walk from Porto Romana? Originally opened in 1959 and thoroughly renovated in 2003, this place has seen a thing or two in the development of Florence.
Some rooms have a good view of the Arno river (which is where most people, including the locals, hang out in summer), and after a long day of sightseeing, it’s perfect to relax in the terrace or the outdoor pool.
Continentale Hotel offers 7 different room categories starting with regular single and double rooms and finishing with the impressive Penthouse Suite. Furthermore, the hotel accommodates a restaurant, a spa with fitness facilities and a tennis court.
