Hotel Londra Palace

An elegant historical palace

19th-century grandeur overlooking the San Marco Basin

The Hotel Londra Palace is a beautiful historic property situated on the Riva degli Schiavoni, just a few steps from Piazza San Marco and the Bridge of Sighs. With views over the San Marco Basin and the Lagoon from one side and the city’s roopftops from the other, you couldn’t be better positioned to enjoy this magical place.

The hotel has welcomed many distinguished guests, including Tchaikovsky who composed the first three movements of his Symphony No 4 in his room. The building has been sensitively restored and has kept many of the beautiful touches and original 19th-century features.

The 53 rooms are all different to one another, but with the same elegant aesthetic. Wake up to views of either the city or the lagoon, then sink into a deep tub at the end of the day exploring. The Do Leoni Restaurant is a lovely bright space where you can enjoy classic Venetian cooking as well as creative, contemporary cuisine. Grab an aperitif at the LondraBar and soak up the views of the San Marco Basin as you enjoy a perfectly mixed Bellini or Negroni.

Belmond Villa San Michele
Set amidst lush trees and terraced gardens, the Belmond Villa San Michelle enjoys the most perfect view over Florence from its hilltop position. Dating back to a 15th century monastery, the renaissance villa’s facade has been attributed to Michelangelo, as much a part of Italy’s heritage as the cathedrals and galleries down the hill. Today, Belmond Villa San Michele is recognised as one of the country’s finest boutique hotels. Each of the 20 rooms and 25 suites are unique, with sumptuous antiques, along with cotto-tile flooring and bright Florentine textiles. Separate from the main building, the exquisite Limonaia Villa contains three suites located in the convent’s former orangery, all with incredible views. These can be connected together to create perhaps the most glamorous villa in Tuscany, a unique haven for families and groups of friends, or for a special occasion such as a wedding or exclusive party. Belmond Villa San Michelle is naturally a favourite among honeymooners, however there are special services tailored towards family adventures, and world famous the cookery school is a destination in itself. A huge range of activities are on offer, such as exclusive historical tours and rafting under the Ponte Vecchio, and there is a complimentary shuttle to and from Florence itself. At the hotel, relax amongst the immaculate gardens and at the spa, swim in the panoramic pool or take part in one of the renowned culinary classes. Dining options here include one of the best restaurants in Florence – the romantic La Loggia – and more laid back cuisine at the Pool Restaurant, each with their own bar, as well as the Cloister Bar in the old monastery.
