Historic Florence sits just outside the doorstep of the Relais Santa Croce, a boutique hotel nestled between two of the city’s most iconic attractions: The Duomo and the Basilica of Santa Croce. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more central location—walking distance to Ponte Vecchio, the historic bridge lined with shops that crosses the Arno River, as well as Galleria dell’Accademia, home of the Michelangelo masterpiece David. As you explore the hotel, look for historic touches dating back to the hotel’s former life as an 18th-century palazzo—original frescoes, hand-painted reliefs, herringbone wood floors, and support beams in the Music Hall designed by Leonardo da Vinci. Tuck into classic Tuscan cuisine with a modern twist at the on-site fine dining restuarant, Guelfi & Ghibellini, or enjoy the Michelin 3-star restaurant, Enoteca Pinchiorri.
