Map and Directions
The beautiful Italian city of Florence, set in the heart of Tuscany, is packed with an incomparable collection of Renaissance art, architectural treasures, wonderful churches and museums. In fact, Florence is so inexhaustibly rich in sights that it would take weeks to see all the city has to offer and even simply the highlights will take up much of your time.
Centrally located in the very heart of Florence on the historic Piazza della Repubblica, the Hotel Savoy is just steps away from Florence's major attractions, the fashion houses, museums and galleries.
Florence is one of the easiest Italian cities to walk around with nearly all of the main sights lying within the centro storico. The classic image of Brunelleschi's cathedral dome dominates the city landscape and the Duomo is perhaps the best place to start discovering Florence, particularly as it is just around the corner from the Hotel Savoy. Just a five-minute walk from here is the Uffizi Gallery, the greatest museum of Renaissance art in the world.
Masterpieces are not just confined to the galleries and museums. Just minutes from the Hotel Savoy, artistic wonders can be found in the shoe and fashion shops of Via Tornabuoni, Florence's smartest retail address, that includes designer names such as Emilio Pucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci, Ferragamo, Bulgari, Roberto Cavalli and Versace.
