We had a wonderful time at the Antica Torre de Via Tornabuoni (Ancient Tower on the Via Tornabuoni). This hotel has a limited number of rooms inside an ancient palazzo situated a few steps from the Arno river, directly in front of the Farragamo building on one of the most exclusive streets in Florence. What a treat! When we arrived, we were escorted to the roof top balcony for a 360 degree view of all of Florence. This hotel has a fabulous location, the rooms are great and the staff is attentive and helpful. Before we arrived, the hotel emailed us to see if they could do anything to make our stay better. We choose to have a private car pick us up at the SMN train station and take us into the Chianti region for a 4-5 hour wine tasting tour which turned out to be one of the highlights of our time in Italy. When I return to Florence, I will try to stay here again.
