I cannot say enough about how wonderful Villa la Vedetta is. We stayed over in one of the deluxe rooms overlooking the city and hosted our wedding at the venue. It was the BEST experience I could have ever asked for. Our event coordinator, Alina, was beyond amazing and made wedding planning a breeze. The wedding went off without a... More

Loving to arrive and relax at this hotel, that feels like a manor house, or a small chateau. Friendly and personal, probably due to our regular visits (we have stayed at least 5 times in the last 5 years) service makes us feel at home. We travel here with kids, who have now progressed into their teenage age but still... More

Our stay was very pleasant here. Staff were courteous, helpful. Views were spectacular. We really enjoyed the breakfast buffet with incredible panoramic views of florence. The shuttle service was prompt and the city center isn't too far to walk from hotel.

We stayed here for an evening and were immediately awestruck at the immaculate presentation and professionalism of the staff and building. The views from the terrace were breathtaking and, for those that complain about it being a wedding venue, there was a wedding on while we were there. We were still allowed access to the terrace, the wedding guests were... More

This hotel is wonderful.The view is simply amazing, looking out over the roof tops of Florence with an absurdly beautiful view of the Duomo. Whether lying by the (lovely) pool, sitting having a drink, or having a magnificent evening meal as the sun sets, the view is there. Outside of the view, the hotel is beautifully situated, in its own... More

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!
