An award-winning hotel that has been welcoming visitors to Florence since 1860. The Plaza Lucchesi Hotel is located on the banks of the Arno River with lovely views over the terracotta rooftops of the Tuscan capital. The rooms and suites are elegantly appointed, and for those wanting a little extra space and luxury, the split level duplex suites are an ideal choice, featuring a loft-style bedroom overlooking the living area below. The in-house restaurant specializes in authentic Tuscan cuisine, arguably the finest in Italy, and offers a splendid view of the Church of San Miniato al Monte. Florence is a city to be explored on foot, and the hotel makes for a perfect starting point, simply wander along the river bank then zigzag gently into the center of town, where all the delights of this medieval city await.
