Gallery Hotel Art
This small and intimate hotel is tucked away in a peaceful courtyard near the River Arno but it’s just seconds from the Ponte Vecchio and close to all of the city’s main attractions. Owned by the Ferragamo Family, this chic hotel is part of the Lungarno Collection of luxury hotels and it blends classic Italian design with minimalist Asian style. Blurring the lines between hotel and gallery, the public areas, including the lobby and the lounge-library, serve as exhibition spaces for contemporary art and photography by artists such as David Lachapelle, Steven Klein and Andy Warhol.
The Fusion Bar & Restaurant offers an irresistible blend of Italian and Japanese-Peruvian cuisine washed down with innovative cocktails. Guests are also invited to use the rooftop terrace at neighbouring sister hotel, the Continentale. Discover Italy’s finest art treasures at the renowned Uffizi Gallery, stroll to the beautiful Boboli Gardens, admire the stunning architecture of the nearby Duomo and Palazzo Vecchio, or enjoy free entry to the Ferragamo Museum which houses an impressive collection of fashion and art.
The contemporary rooms are stylishly furnished in wood, leather and linen, and feature striking black and white photography and free Wi-Fi. The magnificent suites (available on request) are set on the upper floors and offer a luxury terrace and spectacular views over the city.
