Hotel Lungarno Florence

Five-star luxury overlooking the Ponte Vecchio

by Anthology

Nestled in a picturesque bank of the Arno River in Florence, Hotel Lungarno is a haven of luxury and artistic refinement, offering breathtaking views of the Arno River, the iconic Ponte Vecchio and Brunelleschi’s Dome on the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore. 

The interior décor, curated by renowned designer Michele Bönan, is inspired by the ‘nuova classicità’ – a seamless blend of classic Italian elegance with contemporary sophistication, which captures the ambience of a grand Italian residence.

The Lungarno Collection, which includes hotels in Florence, Rome and Milan, is proudly owned by the family of Salvatore Ferragamo, renowned for their exquisite footwear and luxury goods. The family’s values of quality, service and lifestyle permeate throughout their hotels, offering a unique and unforgettable experience for their guests.

The guest accommodation at Hotel Lungarno in Florence is a testament to the hotel’s commitment to providing guests with a truly indulgent experience, with each room and suite exquisitely decorated, boasting a harmonious mix of comfort and artistic flair.

The Michelin-starred restaurant Borgo San Jacopo – known as the city’s ‘dining room on the river’ – offers a culinary journey through the flavours of Tuscany. With its tantalising dishes, extensive wine list and romantic river views, a meal here is an experience to savour.

Some 450 works of art, including those by Cocteau, Picasso, Bueno and Rosai, adorn the walls of public areas and each of the rooms and suites, making it an art lover’s paradise.

Conveniently located to explore the heart of Florence’s cultural heritage, the hotel is just a short stroll away from the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore (the Duomo), the Uffizi Gallery and the Palazzo Pitti. Right across the river is a museum dedicated to the history of the Ferragamo Company, the life of its founder and his creations.

Hotel Lungarno is not just a place to stay; it’s an experience that captures the very essence of Florence.
