The Rivoli Suites are situated in the heart of Florence city centre, within comfortable walking distance of the main museums, galleries and shopping districts. Most notable is the breathtaking Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, otherwise known as 'il Duomo', with its pink, white and green marble facades, tiered to outstanding effect. A walk through the Uffizi Gallery will take you on an adventure through the centuries of Italian and Florentine art, a collection unmatched by any museum. A must see for all art lovers is the Academy of Fine Arts which houses the iconic statue of David by Michelangelo.
Straddling the river Arno is the Ponte Vecchio. This Florentine landmark is
lined with some of Italy's finest jewellers, many of which have traded from
the bridge for centuries and remain family owned. Shopping? The fashion conscious
visitor should head for Via de' Tornabuoni, home of exclusive shops such as
Armani, Gucci and Ferragamo to name but a few. Antique lovers, on the other
hand, should not miss out on Via Maggio at the heart of the antiques district.
For market lovers, the open air market around Piazza San Lorenzo is a must for
bargains and souvenirs.
The hotel is in close vicinity to the main train station, Santa Maria Novella,
making arrival and departure by train a breeze for both tourist and business
