Westin Excelsior Florence

Westin Excelsior Florence,  Tuscany Italy

★    ★    ★    ★    ★

Superb luxury option with a charming ornate interior which contrasts the contemporary rooftop bar and restaurant, which have river and city views. Some wellness facilities at the sister hotel, the St Regis, opposite.

In a quiet riverside piazza location with the historic centre accessible via a pleasant riverside walk. Napoleon’s sister stayed here for twenty years and its well-preserved original features add to its charm.
