Short-break in Florence, Italy

The Dome of Florence seen from Republic Square

Greetings from Florence, Italy!

We have here a very interesting offer for a stay in one of the nicest boutique hotels in Florence situated in the chic street via Tornabuoni.

Tornabuoni, by the way, was one of the most important families in the XIVth century, that is the Reneaissance time. They were patrons of art and artists. As an example Giovanni Tornabuoni had the painter Domenico del Ghirlandaio paint in their altar chapel in the church Santa Maria Novella two cycles of paintings: One is dadicated to the life story of St. John the Baptist (patron saint of Florence and name of Tornabuoni) and the other one to the Holy Vergin Mary. In the scenes you can see people of the time and members of the Tornabuoni family (of course, they were paying and they wanted to be painted surrounded by holy people!). Check out what wikipedia has to say about the Tornabuoni family.

This is the offer for 2 persons in Florence, Italy:

2 nights in in our Hotel in the via Tornabuoni – 1 double room – + one dinner for two persons at Harry’s Bar (one of the most elegant and trendiest restaurants / bars in Florence)- Cost 290 Euro.

Or

3 nights in our Hotel in the Via Tornabuoni – 1 double room – + one dinner for two persons at Harry’s Bar (one of most elegant and trendiest restaurants / bars in Florence)- Cost 380 Euro.

To book or find out more please contact Violetta Buti and her organization Beauty In Italy

Also, a good idea for a short stay in Florence, is to add a walking tour with a licensed private guide!

Go for it and see you here!
