This 117-room luxury hotel, which covers an area of over 22,000sqm, comprises the lavishly restored Palazzo della Gherardesca, a historical Florentine palazzo of the late fifteenth century set within a sensitively regenerated 45,000sqm park in the heart of Florence. Run by the prestigious Four Seasons group, the development has been acclaimed as one of the most beautiful hotels in the world. Opened in June 2008.
