Portrait Firenze

Florence, Italy

At a Glance

  • As expected from a hotel owned by the Ferragamo family, the spacious suites are beautifully appointed and some feature private terraces with postcard-worthy views over the Ponte Vecchio.

  • Do away with the standard hotel check-in experience and luxuriate in the incredibly personalized service from staff as soon as you step in from the hustle and bustle of the city streets to a seemingly peaceful haven.

  • Dine around at the other Lungarno hotels which are a short walk away and range from sushi in the Fusion Bar to Italian Michelin Star Dining at Borgo San Jacopo.

  • Amp up your style credentials with a visit to the Salvatore Ferragamo museum a short walk away from the hotel - guests have free entrance and 10% discount at the eponymous boutique on the gorgeous via Tornabuoni nearby.

  • No need to spend hours researching before a first visit to Florence - with complimentary iPads in every room loaded with the best local information and recommendations you can be sure you'll see (and taste!) the best of the city even on a short stay.

Good time to visit

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.

To start planning your vacation to Portrait Firenze


Portrait Firenze is the newest addition to the Ferragamo empire in Florence and adds another dimension to the Lungarno Collection. Portrait Firenze is a new concept for a hotel with a strong focus on incredibly personalized service and exclusive luxury.

Portrait Firenze, modelled on Portrait Roma, its sister property in Rome, prides itself on giving you an exceptionally customized service and experience from the moment you book. Designed to feel like a home rather than a hotel, check-in feels more like a warm welcome from your host than a formal process, the suite will be your suite with your chosen newspaper, your choice of pillows and sheets, your favorite food and a suggested itinerary tailored to your interests and requests.

The suites are sleek and beautifully decorated with dark wooden parquet floors, elegant grey walls and enormous super king size beds topped with cashmere rugs, flat screen TVs, and a complimentary iPad loaded with essential local information from restaurants and bars, to shops and the latest exhibitions. The sitting rooms are furnished with opulent velvet sofas (all sofa-beds), a work desk, a compact kitchenette and great city views. The luxurious bathrooms are fully equipped with double sinks, marble showers and baths and Salvatore Ferragamo Tuscan Soul bath products.

The restaurant Caffe dell'Oro has huge windows with fantastic views of the bustling Ponte Vecchio, a warm and relaxed atmosphere and serves delicious yet simple Italian dishes.

If you feel like a change of scenery you can dine around at the other restaurants in the Lungarno Dining Collection - specializing in Nikkei cuisine, sushi and cocktails at the Fusion Bar & Restaurant just next door at Gallery Hotel Art, or enjoy a fine dining experience at Michelin-starred Borgo San Jacopo located in nearby Hotel Lungarno.
