Hotel Principe, Florence
Situated on the right bank of the Arno river, in one of the most beautiful areas of Florence, the Principe hotel is housed in a lovely villa, dating back to 1860 and built by order of King Victor Emanuel II during the period when Florence was the capital of Italy. Transformed into a hotel in 1955, the villa has kept its original structure and its facade still retains the charm of an old embassy town house. Set within a quiet walled garden along the river, centrally located yet away from the metropolitan traffic, the property creates a welcoming oasis of tranquillity. Due to its excellent position, only a few minutes away from the major sights and museums of the city, the hotel offers the possibility to enjoy a vacation dedicated to discovering the wonders of Florence.
