Save Place
Via Roma, 2, 16034 Portofino GE, Italy

Save Place
Borgo Pinti, 99, 50121 Firenze FI, Italy
Fans of the Four Seasons brand will be delighted with the Florence version, located a short walk north of the city centre. Housed in grand Renaissance Palazzo della Gherardesca and the adjacent Conventino, it stands in the largest privately-owned...
Save Place
Piazza Ognissanti, 1, 50123 Firenze FI, Italy
The 5-star St. Regis lies on the north bank of the river, a ten-minute walk from the city center. The opulent interiors are fitting for a grand Renaissance palace (or a St. Regis hotel), but that doesn’t mean that this place is stuffy, and...
