Portrait Firenze, Florence, Italy
An all-suite boutique hotel in a prime riverfront location right by the historic Ponte Vecchio in central Florence. Part of the Lungarno Collection of hotels, owned by the Ferragamo family, framed black-and-white photographs from the family archive decorate the walls of the public areas and suites. There is a low-lit, low-key glamour to the lobby and Caffe dell'Oro where mid-century furniture and muted colours are offset by pieces of contemporary sculpture, elegant lamps and white-washed brick walls. Service is discreet and personal with a pre-arrival questionnaire that ensures you have exactly the right kind of pillow in your suite and the temperature is as you like it. Choose a suite with a view of the River Arno for the wow-factor.
Your stay gives you free access to the Ferragamo museum, which is a block away, and 10% discount in their flagship store.
The hotel is on the banks of the River Arno with views of the Ponte Vecchio. Plenty of Florence's main sites are within strolling distance.
By plane: direct flights to Pisa from London, Manchester and Bristol take around 2 hours 30 mins. The hotel is a 1 hour 30-minute drive from the airport. skyscanner.net
Style & Character
It's ideal for haute-couture wearing couples. We love people-watching here - the streetside tables of the café are a prime spot for it.
