Il Salviatino , Florence, Italy
Tucked into the hillside town of Fiesole, this 15th-century palazzo – once home to Florentine aristocracy – is now one of Europe’s most beautiful and celebrated hotels.
As entrances go, you’ll be hard-pushed to beat the final sweep up to Il Salviatino, a glamorous, all-suite residence with luxurious, stately Renaissance art-filled salons, just outside of Florence.
The hotel itself is picture-perfect Italian, a grand architectural gem that wouldn't look out of place on a postcard.
Elegantly-comfortable rooms are set in both the main house and the Tuscan gardens, and alongside the lovingly-restored original features you'll find all the luxuries and conveniences of the 21st century.
For an extra-special treat though, indulge your senses in the spa where skilled therapists offer sumptuous treatments, fragranced by Florence's renowned perfumier, Dr Vranjes.
