Florence and surrounding area :Florence City

The Orto de' Medici Hotel in Florence is located inside an early 19th Century palace along a tranquil street in downtown Florence, near the Academy Gallery (Galleria dellAccademia) and only five minutes by foot from the Cathedral and the Basso Fortress (Fortezza da Basso) . Clients have access to valet parking . The hotel's privileged position makes it a great point of departure for cultural visits to the heart of the city of Florence, shopping and participation in fairs and congresses . The 42 rooms in the Hotel, classic, deluxe or junior suite, are tastefully and elegantly furnished . From the windows of many of our rooms it is possible to admire the magnificent view of the Medieval roofs of Florence . The palace hall is accessed through a suggestive corridor painted with frescoes that leads into the Tuscan "Serena Rock" stairway that connects the four floors of the hotel . Continuing along the corridor, you reach the charming internal garden, guard of a prestigious past: In the late 16th Century, Lorenzo de Medici, "Il Magnifico", set up in Florence a school of sculptors that was recognized as the premier Art Academy in Europe . Among its most prominent students, Michelangelo Buonarroti learned here the artistic techniques that allowed him to create his masterpieces a few years later, which still attract a great number of tourists to Florence . Today a path paved with pietra serena and covered with an iron and glass structure allows our guests to easily access the new deluxe rooms, which will follow small paths embellished with geometrical hedges and saplings . At the centre of the garden there is a fountain surmounted by a small bronze angel (copy of Verrocchio) . The Hotels first floor has two spacious reading rooms with frescoed ceilings and parquet floors . The beautiful dining room, decorated with floral landscapes, borders a large flowered terrace where guests can dine in the open and, during the summer, enjoy a drink and a relaxing evening at the La Terrazza dellOrto bar . Wi-Fi areas and Internet workstations are always available in our Hotel .
