Best for city slickers
Standing on the stately Piazza della Repubblica, mere moments from attractions like Palazzo Strozzi, Orsanmichele and the Uffizi Gallery, Hotel Savoy is right in the heart of the action. Hotelier and interior designer Olga Polizzi worked with Laudomia Pucci (daughter of celebrated designer Emilio Pucci) on the aesthetics, adding bright flashes of colour and patterns. The rooms
are modern and luxurious, with bleached parquet, bold prints and marble bathrooms, and offer impressive views, including of the piazza and the Duomo.
ROOMS: From €520 (£443). roccofortehotels.com
