Overlooking the waters of the Arno, with an extraordinary view of the Ponte Vecchio and all the most iconic monuments of the historic center, such as the Brunelleschi’s Cupole and the Tower of Palazzo Vecchio, Lungarno Hotel is an elegant 5-star Hotel that offers its guests the Michelin-starred restaurant “Borgo San Jacopo” and a collection of works of art by over 400 of the most important twentieth-century artists, from Picasso to Cocteau, from Bueno to Italian masters.
Recently renovated after fifty years from its opening, this design hotel has won numerous awards from the best Italian and international travel guides and magazines and is undoubtedly one of the excellences of Florentine hotellerie.
The 65 luxurious rooms and suites are furnished with a sober and refined taste that, like the common areas, plays on shades of white and blue, and many offer a terrace with an incomparable view. For an unforgettable stay, choose the Rooftop Terrace Suite View River on the eighth floor of the hotel, with its breathtaking view over the entire city center, or the Executive Terrace River View, with two terraces on the fifth and sixth floors.
The pursuit of excellence and luxury also characterizes the offer of experiences organized by the hotel: here you will not find classic tours or mainstream activities, but real dives into the Florentine tradition, such as the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum or the discovery of the mastery of the artisans of some historical Florentine workshops, such as that of the Pampaloni silversmiths and the renowned Fratelli Piccini jewelery, the more ancient of Ponte Vecchio.
Hotel Lungarno also welcomes travelers with children, with the Vik Children Program, a child-friendly experience to “stimulate their interest in art and culture, love for science or gastronomy”, including visits to the Museum del Bargello, an afternoon to learn the love of science with Leonardo Da Vinci and Galileo Galilei and a cooking class to become skilled pizza makers.
The gastronomic offer is also characterized by exclusivity: in addition to the 1 Michelin Star restaurant Borgo San Jacopo, managed by chef Claudio Mengoni you can give yourself a moment of relaxation at the Picteau Cocktail Bar, overlooking the Arno River, who owes its name to the painter whose piece of art are showed on the world: Picasso and Cocteau.
