Antica Torre di Via Tornabuoni
A small boutique hotel that offers an unforgettable emotional experience
The attention to detail and the warmth of the setting makes the Antica Torre di Via Tornabuoni a magical choice for a stay in Florence. Set within one of the historic “tower houses” of Medieval Florence, what was once used as an instrument of war has been gracefully transformed into an oasis of calm and hospitality. Offering breathtaking views over the whole of Florence, combining charm and history with modern details (the hotel underwent restoration in 2008), a stay at the Antica Torre is truly an unforgettable experience.
Located in the center of historic Florence, the romantic hotel features uniquely designed spacious rooms and suites, many with their own terrace. Breakfast is served on the rooftop terrace, offering a truly wondrous view over the terra cotta roofs of the ancient city. The terrace is heated in winter, so guests are able to enjoy the unique views all year round. A traditional Mediterranean breakfast is served alongside English and continental favorites, with seasonal additions from the surrounding Tuscan countryside. Guests are also invited to enjoy a glass of Chianti or an afternoon spritz at the hotel’s rooftop bar.
Rooms and Suites
Each of the rooms and suites is uniquely furnished and designed with loving detail. The classic and deluxe rooms are furnished in traditional Florentine style and feature marble bathrooms and enchanting views of the city or of the Palazzo itself. Some of the deluxe rooms have jasmine-adorned terraces overlooking the Duomo, the River Arno or the Church of Santo Spirito. For added luxury, book the Panoramic Suite with an enchanting terrace overlooking the Arno and Ponte Vecchio. A finely decorated canopy bed, fabric-covered walls, wood floors and an alcove with hand painted boiserie, make this room the ideal retreat for an extended stay in Florence.
Breakfast on the terrace
The terrace at Antica Torre is a remarkable experience in itself, giving guests the opportunity of enjoying a buffet breakfast in the open air, with the unique view of Florence's rooftops and monuments. Canopies provide shade, while a second terrace area offers another fine view over the river Arno. The breakfast menu comprises traditional continental and English breakfast specialities, along with typical seasonal dishes from the Tuscan countryside. Cappuccino and croissants become an absolutely unique moment when the setting features arguably the finest flowering of art and architecture that our planet has ever seen.
