Best of Both Worlds

Sometimes you want to be in the heart of all the action, sometimes you want to get away from it all – why not have a little of both?

Do you come alive in the heart of a bustling city? Or does your perfect vacation involve lounging in beautiful, secluded areas? If you’re looking to tap into the infectious energy of a big city while also enjoying a relaxing vacation, these Four Seasons hotels offer the best of both worlds. Enjoy intimate oceanside picnics and peaceful garden strolls just minutes from cultural centres, shopping districts and vibrant nightlife. When you stay at Four Seasons, you can pack your bags knowing that you’ve chosen a destination that offers whatever you’re in the mood for – last-minute changes included.

Find culture and peace of mind in Florence

Located in the heart of Florence, Four Seasons Hotel Firenze offers a refuge within a bustling cultural hub. The Hotel’s grand historic building dates back to the 1400s and features rich architecture with Renaissance detailing, fresco-lined walls and a Michelin-starred Italian restaurant. The wonder continues outside, where you’ll find charming statues, a small Ionic temple, perfectly manicured lawns and curved walking paths in the expansive 11-acre Giardino della Gherardesca. It’s the perfect setting for a romantic picnic under majestic trees or a picturesque hilltop dinner with Duomo views.

And when you’re ready to explore the city, you’re within walking distance of historic sites and world-class museums. After you’ve gazed upon Sandro Botticelli paintings at Uffizi Gallery, crossed the famous Ponte Vecchio bridge and sampled authentic Italian dishes at the Mercato Centrale Florence, come back to the Hotel to unwind with a dip in the garden pool or just revel in the natural beauty found within the walled garden oasis. For an unforgettable end to your day, let Four Seasons set an intimate table for you and your love on a private, open-air terrace on the Ponte Vecchio and indulge in a four-course gourmet meal designed by the talented culinary team as you watch the sun set over the Arno River.
