The 62-key property, the brand’s first in Italy, is housed in a former palace one Via de Tornabuoni, one the city’s most prestigious streets.

This historical property—formerly the Palazzo Minerbetti—has undergone significant restoration since its early days when it hosted luminaries such as the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Cosimo de Medici III. His patronage of science, architecture, literature and arts contributed to the cultural heritage of Florence and is reflected throughout the property via updates to guestrooms and suites, and public spaces.

Hotel highlights include:

  • Bold gem tone colours and luxurious furnishings in the guestrooms, reflecting the history and beauty of the city’s famous Renaissance era.
  • Five dining and drink options: Il Magnifico Ristorante offers all-day dining; Il Magnifico Café serves aperitives with small bites as well as offering a complete Champagne and wine list; La Cave, which is located deep within Il Tornabuoni, boasts a vast selection of renowned Italian, French and international wines; the Lucie Restaurant provides a one-of-a-kind rooftop view of the city; and the Butterfly Terrace serves signature cocktails.
  • A bright, spacious fitness center offers state-of-the-art equipment and personal training sessions.

“We are excited to welcome guests to this extraordinary palace and iconic symbol of Florence,” said Andrea Girolami, president and CEO at AG Group for Il Tornabuoni Hotel. “Il Tournabuoni Hotel is truly a breathtaking property, and we are looking forward to providing independent-minded guests with a sophisticated yet unscripted experience. Florence understands how to treasure and maintain the spirit of its artistic and cultural wealth. Travellers to this exceptional city will find an abundance of opportunities to learn, grow, and expand by experiencing the monumental historic past of Florence.”
