We stayed here for four days in July to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday. The hotel is stunning with the most amazing views. We enjoyed the swimming pool as it was so hot during our stay. Food was fabulous and staff very attentive and friendly. Our room was huge and amazing. We would love to go back one day.

Sits in the top of the hill overlooking the city centre. It's a 20m plus all to the action but the shuttle drops you and picks you up when ever you need. You feel like your staying in a historic mansion and the rooms are beautiful. Views are amazing over Florance. Food was great and breakfasts extensive. Service was amazing.... More

We loved Villa La Vedetta's superb location and stunning pool. With young children the free shuttle and buffet breakfast was a huge success. Service was lacking at times and cocktails on the terrace were non existent. Still a very enjoyable stay.

From the initial email contact, through my stay, and the follow, was all so kind and personal. I felt as though I was a part of their family. All the staff members were kind and helpful. I will definitely be going back. I loved Florence, and the people at Villa La Vedetta were a big reason for that.

Staying in Piazzale Michelangelo

Neighborhood Profile
Piazzale Michelangelo
Just outside the ancient walls of Florence, Viale Michelangiolo starts. It is a winding road rimmed by wonderful poplars and holm oaks. The long ascent opens up to the most beautiful and famous panoramic viewpoint of Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo, where an elevated terrace offers visitors an incomparable and breathtaking view of the entire city from above. During good weather, Piazzale Michelangelo provides visitors with a serene space surrounded by the amazing landscape, better if accompanied by a fresh gelato from a local kiosk. During night, visitors will be dazzled by the warm lights of the capital of the Renaissance. Spend a second with the silent Romanesque beauty of the Basilica of San Miniato al Monte: the one that wishes good morning and good night to Florence!
