Villa Cora

Villa Cora overlooks the Boboli Gardens on the hills just outside the historic centre of Florence. It was an aristocratic house commissioned by Baron Oppenheim in the 1860s. Villa Cora is dizzying a mishmash of different styles. It has hosted major historic figures, including Napoleon’s wife and the composer Tchaikovsky.

It became a grand hotel in the 1960s. Today it’s widely considered to be one of the finest buildings in Florence and one of the world’s leading independent luxury hotels. Piazzale Michelangelo, the famous viewing point, is just a 10-minute walk away. The hotel is surrounded by rose gardens. Inside you’ll find trompe l’oeil frescoes, crystal chandeliers and parquet floors. The ballroom is so grand it would make Marie Antoinette blush.
