Continentale, Florence

If it’s traditional Italian luxury you’re after, look no further. Continentale exudes a vibrant and dynamic atmosphere while maintaining a romantic charm, perfectly complimenting the very features that make Florence such a wonderful city. Inspired by haute couture of the 1950s, the luxurious guestrooms and suites set a high standard for sophistication with their flowing curtains and designer bathrooms. No detail is spared here to give you a relaxing and memorable stay; after a day of exploring the city, why not unwind on the magnificent rooftop terrace and lounge bar and enjoy a soothing cocktail?

Location

Overlooking the majestic Ponte Vecchio Bridge with views of Florence’s Arno River, Continentale is situated 10 minutes from Santa Maria Nomela Railway station, 10 km from Florence Airport.

Your room

The luxurious suites take inspiration from the area’s fashion and the design of the 1950s, so expect an abundance of smooth Tuscan furnishing – handmade leather desks are just one of the features we particularly love. Pictures by great Florentine fashion photographers are ever-present throughout, while creations by famous international designers enrich Continentale with its vibrant and modern rooms.

Why we like it

We recommend getting out on the bikes and discovering the hidden gems of Florence before unwinding with a massage at the spa. Be sure to visit the beautiful terrace on top of the Consorti tower, which invites guests and locals alike to discover the treasures of the Renaissance and a most stunning view.

SUSTAINABILITY

The Lungarno Collection has collaborated with Clean The World to recycle unused soaps, encouraging other hospitality establishments to get involved in the programme. The collected soaps and shampoos are distributed to people around the world who are in need of hygiene supplies, preventing death from disease. The group also takes on a plastic-free approach, replacing single-use plastics with biodegradable alternatives.
