Florence is always beautiful, but during the weeks leading up to Christmas it gets even more charming, even enchanting, with the lights and Christmas decorations, which blend in with the architectural beauties of the cradle of the Renaissance.
Via Tornabuoni, where our property is located, is a must for anyone who wants to experience the Christmas atmosphere and experience all the magic of this time of year in Florence. Enjoy the stupendous view from our rooftop to have a 360-degree view of the illuminated city, including the projections that are traditionally made on Ponte Vecchio.
Christmas is only on December 25th, but the city is already celebrating and has a schedule full of unmissable events starting in mid-November. Check out!
