What is it? Cre­ated by the five chil­dren of Sal­va­tore Fer­rag­amo, the Ital­ian shoe de­signer who shod count­less Hol­ly­wood stars, this charm­ing Floren­tian ho­tel pays trib­ute to the cel­e­brated cre­ator’s style. What’s so fab? This gor­geous ho­tel, set in a cen­turies-old house, has a me­dieval tower and walls hung with the work of cel­e­brated 20th-cen­tury artists, in­clud­ing Pi­casso and Jean Cocteau. What about rooms? Most of the 69 cosy rooms decked out with an­tique fix­tures and fur­nish­ings have views over Florence’s river Arno and the Ponte Vec­chio. What else should I know? Borgo San Ja­copo res­tau­rant serves sapid lo­cal de­lights, whilst the city’s main sights are within easy reach. How much? Deluxe rooms from Dh1,146 a night, www.lun­gar­nocol­lec­tion.com.
