Tuscany is a region of central Italy, and it contains one of the most romantic cities in the world, Florence. But venture out of the city, and you can have some of the most beautiful landscape, as well as being surrounded by wineries. Here are the top five luxury resorts in Tuscany.
Enjoy a country retreat as you look at some spectacular panoramic views of Florence on this 180’s hotel rooftop. Every room inside is decorated with different art; from art nouveau to Moorish, as well as the floor tiles and chandeliers. In order to get even closer with nature, bikes are available free to guests.
Located in the heart of it all, Costello Banfi is a wine lover’s paradise. There is breathtaking scenery everywhere with fresh fruit vineyards and the opportunity to have guided winery tours. Although taking home a few bottles of wine for souvenirs is a must, make sure to drink a few fine glasses at the restaurants onside. With the excellent service you will get throughout your stay, you will not regret it.
With the modern amenities of a big screen tv, two pools, a spa, and free wifi in the room looking out onto the panoramic backdrop of the mountains, this resort is where modernity and nature make a beautiful collision. This resort is particularly indicated for couples who are looking for a romantic escape in the beautiful region of Tuscany. When visiting, don't forget to visit the surrounding area, it shelters some of the world's best wineries and landscapes. Also, in case you are visiting for business purposes, make sure that the beautiful views out the window do not sidetrack you as you participate in business meetings in the large conference rooms. The premises are wheelchair accessible and Marriot rewards can be used here.
This hotel is so popular that other hotels have tried to copy it. Nothing is truly like the original though. J.K. Place Firenze is the hotel that combines world class service, the ability to have large scale fashion events, and family vacations all under one roof. If you happen to be visiting when there’s no fashion show onside., do not fear. You are just around the corner from boutique lined streets and not far from public transportation so you can explore the rest of Florence.
For those that envision a honeymoon of royalty, live it up in the sixteenth century family home of Lorrenzo Niccolini di Camugliano, a Florentine Marquis. You will see the same artwork and sit in the same furniture as he and his family did centuries ago. With only ten rooms and set back away from the street, there is no shortage of privacy for an intimate time away from the daily stresses of life.
At these five resorts, you are not far away from the city after you are done enjoying the nature. But with so much to offer at and around these resorts, you may not have time to consider asking for more. Make sure to take a look at our What to Wear on Vacation fashion guide before you go.
