Visiting Florence is all about walking around this open-air museum, seeing, listening, learning… art is all around as well as history, and as pleasant as receiving all that information, it can also be tiring. That’s why we decided to offer to our guests a Wellness Path in Antica Torre Tornabuoni, so they can relax after touring around Florence and regain the energies to another day in town.
The room “set” of this secret hideaway where you can refocus on your energies and regenerate your body and soul is our Hammam Suite, equipped with a wellness area which includes chromotherapy, double jacuzzi, turkish bath for two and two loungers.
We took a lot of care in the products used for our treatments: for the facial treatments, for example, we use the products of the Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella. They are high quality products with selected raw materials, following, until today, the artisan procedures that belonged to the Dominican friars, who cultivated the hortus conclusus from the thirteenth century, which we find today in the garden adjacent to Villa Petraia on the hills of Florence.
All the products used in our treatments are paraben-free toilet milk rich in vegetable oils, with the fragrance of gardenia rose to cleanse and prepare your face, the water of rose centifolia with astringent and toning properties, and the water of astringent and lightening orange. The powder to whiten the meat is a historical product based on Ireos powder (Giaggiolo scented with almonds), which has a delicate exfoliating action to lighten and re-oxygenate your face and can also be used as a mask for impure skin. The fluid gel based on Aloe will give new vitality with its emollient and moisturizing action and can also be used as a soothing mask for delicate, red and irritated skin or as a day cream after treatment.
Would you like to live this experience? Here’s what the wellness path is all about!

3° “TROUGH IRIS“
This specific wellness program takes inspiration by the symbol of Florence, the Iris. We propose a detoxifying Turkish bath for about 15/20 minutes and a body scrub with honey and sugar.
The gentle exfoliation of the sugar and honey will calm your thoughts. The Swedish massage will give you muscular relief, relaxation and toning thanks to its decontracting techniques.
