Villa La Vedetta is a beautiful villa, more a palace, located very close to the old city center on Florence. It's located on a hill and has spectacular views on Florence and its Duomo. The staff is extremely friendly, we asked for a wheelchair and it was organized in a second. The hotel is well equipped with a nice swimming... More

Thanks for the suggestion, I will personally look into the mattress fact , indeed we selected medium light mattresses, in the aim to satisfy both parts, let's say the "hard side" and the "soft side"!

We stayed here for my wife's 40th and like many of the reviews on here we had a fantastic time at the hotel.

A beautiful hotel, 18 rooms, sheer luxury. Staff very welcoming and helpful. We had a gran deluxe suite overlooking the garden that had a large terrace.

I felt quite divided about Villa la Vedetta, on one hand, we were offered gracious service and views that are amongst the best I've ever enjoyed, on the other, I found the quality of room to be tired and the functions at the hotel frustrating.

Beautiful classic hotel, with a great pool area and stunning views. We were guests at a wedding here and the setting was amazing. Very friendly staff (Oscar could well be the best waiter/bartender in Florence) A trip to the roof terrace is a MUST.

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!
