WHAT WE LOVE ABOUT HOTEL BRUNELLESCHI
To start with, we have to agree that it isn't everyday that we get the chance to sleep in a Medieval Tower (a former prison) with a breathtaking Florence view. Hotel Brunelleschi history is quite inspiring: Filippo Brunelleschi, the engineer behind the development of the dome of Florence's Cathedral, was the actual owner of this property. Hotel Brunelleschi offers its guests the opportunity to visit its own private museum. For those familiar with The DaVinci Code character Robert Langdon, learn that this is the place where Langdon stays when he visits Florence. A visit to Hotel Brunelleschi is not completed without a meal at Osteria della Pagliazza, delicious Italian food inspired by traditional Tuscany recipes. Last but not least, the hotel fragrances are quite unique - locally made by Dr. Vranjes, a specialist in the art of perfumes.
LOCATION IN FLORENCE
Hotel Brunelleschi is located just a few steps away from the Piazza del Duomo, where Florence's Duomo is located. This is one of the oldest neighborhoods of Florence, with its traditional small chamring streets. Piazza della Signoria and Palazzo Strozzi, two of the most beautiful places to visit in Florence, are also near Hotel Brunelleschi.
