    Plaza Hotel Lucchesi

    Florence, Italy

    Located in the heart of Florence since 1860, the historic Plaza Hotel Lucchesi symbolizes the elegance and the warm welcome of this flourishing city of art, the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance. Overlooking the Arno River, the hotel offers on its southern side the beautiful landscape of San Miniato a Monte and Piazzale Michelangelo; on its northern side, visitors enjoy an impressive view over the city, including Santa Croce and the Duomo. A short walk from Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi, this historic property is an ideal starting point for exploring the city of the Renaissance and its many treasures. During its long and colorful history, it has been a favorite of celebrities and the literary set – including British novelist D.H. Lawrence, who wrote his groundbreaking Lady Chatterley's Lover while staying here in the 1920s. Comfortable, quiet and furnished with care, the hotel’s elegant guest rooms offer views of the Arno River and the hilly landscapes beyond, or of the rooftops of Florence. Each is equipped with a private bath with tub or shower, hair dryer, desk, internet wi-fi, direct line telephone, wall-mounted LCD television with satellite TV, safe, minibar and individually controlled heating and air conditioning. Along with a restaurant featuring local and international cuisine, Plaza Hotel Lucchesi boasts a wonderful rooftop terrace overlooking the city with a 360° view of the Cathedral, Santa Croce and the surrounding hills, home to Empire Rooftop View American Bar and Pool.

    Grand Hotel Continental

    Siena, Italy

    Located in the very heart of the historical center of Siena, just steps from the Piazzo del Campo, where the famous Palio races are held, and the Duomo, the Grand Hotel Continental traces its history back to the 17th century. History and art are an integral part of the Grand Hotel Continental, with a romantic, refined ambiance enhanced by its grand frescoes, marble and priceless furniture. The skills of talented craftsmen, artists and interior designers are evident in the gracious guest rooms embellished with marble and travertine bathrooms, Chinese porcelain lamps and fine silks, mirrors inlaid with silver and equipped with air conditioning, a minibar, an in-room safe and other amenities to ensure a comfortable stay. The Wine Cellar, located in the base of a medieval tower, celebrates all that makes Tuscan wines so sought-after and SaporDivino Restaurant celebrates Tuscan cuisine in all its glory – with a dash of creativity for a true taste of Siena.  This elegant hotel provides an authentic “sense of place” that you’ll long remember.
