Housed in a magnificent 15th-century building, The Hotel Bernini Palace, Florence is a shining example of Italian Renaissance style in the heart of the city. This luxury Florence hotel is tucked behind Piazza della Signoria and the famed Uffizi Gallery and just six minutes from the exclusive shops of Via Tornabuoni.

All guest rooms and suites are spacious and sumptuously furnished with magnificent antiques, stylish touches such as Murano glass lamps, and every modern comfort. On the Executive Tuscan Floor, each of the individually decorated rooms is steeped in traditional Tuscan hues and Renaissance style. Wood-beamed ceilings, four-poster beds and precious tapestries enhance the ambience.
