Average time to visit

Florence is an exciting place to visit at any time of the year, and most attractions are open all year round. The best time to visit Florence is in May, early June, late September and October. Days during those months are usually warm, and quite long. July and August are hot and humid with many tourists. Since most Italians leave their hot cities in the summer, many restaurants are closed in Florence.

Winter can get cold, particularly January but it is quiet. Temperatures are more favourable in the spring and autumn months.

Gallery Hotel Art has 74 sleek rooms and suites, designed in a contemporary style with a masculine edge - dark wooden floors, leather trimmed furniture and elegant mood lighting. Walls are decorated with modern art and the rooms are furnished with beautifully crafted Florentine textiles and furniture. Sandstone bathrooms have double sinks, showers over the bathtub and some have separate walk in showers as well. The suites on the upper floors of the hotel have lovely terraces complete with day beds and tables and chairs, and spectacular views across the city. The suites are spacious and perfect for families.

The Library is an inviting room to relax and enjoy a cocktail and is rearranged each morning for breakfast. There is a minimalist Asian-inspired bar and fusion restaurant popular with locals as well as hotel guests. If you feel like a change of scenery you can dine around at the other restaurants in the Lungarno hotels - Caffe dell'Oro just next door in Portrait Firenze, or Borgo San Jacopo, the other side of the river where you can enjoy spectacular views of the Arno.

As with Gallery Hotel Art's sister properties, you can follow the history of the Ferragamo brand, starting with the fashion label portrayed in the framed original sketches and many photos of celebrities and models wearing the beautiful clothes and shoes. You will also be given free entry to the Ferragamo museum which is well worth a visit if you are interested in fashion.

Cordelia Nicholls (Staff)

The hotel's location is fantastic, just off the Ponte Vecchio and very easy walking distance to the rest of Florence's delights. The staff are lovely and the hotel has a nice relaxed atmosphere. Bedrooms are all good sizes for a city hotel and the design is very cool; quite masculine and beautifully done. The photos from the 50's of the beginnings of the Salvatore Ferragamo brand - celebs in his clothes, original sketches, parties in full swing and the city of Florence are wonderful and you can spend hours wandering around the hotel transfixed on each and every one.
