My husband and I truly enjoyed our 3 night stay in Florence at Villa La Vedetta. The staff was very friendly and helpful, making us feel welcome in this beautiful property.

My stay at the Villa felt as though this home were mine and I was coming home from a very long and stressful trip away. The pool and it's gardens are magnificent, and they boast one of the best views of Florence. I will certainly make this hotel a place for me to return many, many times.

Although regulars to Villa La Vedetta, we consider it our duty to continue reviewing this property. In August we were fortunate enough to be able to stay 12 nights.

Florence is beautiful but in August it is hot and full of tourists and so to enjoy it you need to be able to find some calm, some cool, some elegance and some 'nurture'. Villa La Vedetta delivers on all counts. Regardless of the fact that I booked very last minute (fed up with our rainy stay in Northern France),...

Staying in Piazzale Michelangelo

Neighbourhood 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!
