There are plenty of beautiful cities the world over but sometimes it does seem that Italy got more than their fair share. And while Venice and Rome often get many of the accolades and much of the attention, the region of Tuscany and its capital city of Florence are just as breathtakingly beautiful as those other famous Italian cities. The history and majesty of Florence give this town a whole lot to boast about including the fact that it is the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance. And Florence still retains so much of its architecture and incredible style. One of the best ways to visit this amazing city, naturally, is with a stay in one of its most gorgeous hotels.
The name Ferragamo might not be AS famous as Florence itself, but it’s pretty darn well known. The famed shoe designer’s family owns a boutique hotel in Florence that used to be quite nice and well liked, but thanks to some recent upgrades, this small boutique hotel is getting lots of buzz for being one of Florence’s new hot spots. The Portrait Firenze is a tiny jewel of a hotel with just 36 rooms. But those rooms aren’t exactly what you’ll find at your local Holiday Inn. Each guest room in the Portrait Firenze is designed to have the comfort and beauty of a residential apartment with only the finest in high end furnishings and decor. Rooms begin at $620 U.S. dollars per night and if a regular room isn’t enough accommodation for you, you can stay in the Portrait Penthouse which occupies an entire floor and has five bedrooms. If you’re going to visit the beauty of Florence do so from a luxurious hotel like the Portrait Firenze.
