Il Tornabuoni

Il Tornabuoni Hotel, Florence

Historic Hotel



Recommended for:


Considered to be one of the finest Palazzos in Florence, Palazzo Minerbetti was known as the Hotel of Europe until 1918, and frequented by wealthy foreigners and dignified guests including the great American writer Henry James in 1869. Located in the heart of Florence where art mixes with fashion, food and design.

Spending time in this historical dwelling can only be compared to taking a journey back in time, enjoy moments of the building’s history through its design, its lighting and its colours whilst, at the same time, relishing in the contemporary features and impeccable service that only a five star hotel knows how to provide.


With just 62 rooms and suites, nothing has been overlooked, among the finesses, there is a sublime Champagne Bar, serving bubbles from only the most prestigious Italian and French houses.

Stepping out from your Palazzo, explore the narrow streets and stumble on Florence's Renaissance history from the Ponte Vecchio, Pitti Palace, or the collections of the Uffizi.


In the evening, loop back to Il Tornabuoni where there are three impressive restaurants; Il Magnifico Bistro situated on the ground floor, and La Terrazza on the 4th floor offering spectacular views of Florence overlooking Santa Maria Novella, San Frediano, Orgnissanti Church and many beauties of the Renaissance skyline. The once-in-a-lifetime L'A-peritivo at sunset and Lucie is a gastronomic restaurant offering intimate atmosphere for food lovers.
