Stylish, mod­ern and at the heart of Florence, Ho­tel Con­ti­nen­tale is the per­fect spot from which to ex­plore. Right on the Ponte Vec­chio, the city’s old­est bridge across the Arno River, the best mu­se­ums and gal­leries are within walk­ing dis­tance. If you en­joy peo­ple watch­ing, sit in the Re­lax Room on the mez­za­nine floor which over­looks the bridge and the bus­tle of tourists.

Dou­ble-glazed floor to ceil­ing win­dows cut out the noise and the daybeds make it a won­der­ful es­cape. On the same level, you’ll find a small bar, el­e­gant white lounge and the break­fast room, dec­o­rated with spots of bright pink and pis­ta­chio green.

In the sum­mer, the pop­u­lar rooftop bar is where you can start and end your day with break­fast then cock­tails. A cosy spa, found in the ho­tel’s base­ment, caters to all your skin and body needs. The rooms are so­phis­ti­cated with white gauzy cur­tains hang­ing from four­poster beds and blond wood fin­ishes, giv­ing you the feel­ing of space and com­fort.
