Il Salviatino is set in a 15th-century palazzo with sensational views across its flourishing gardens and the Florentine skyline beyond. The hotel is not only gorgeous, but rich with history: Original frescoes, rare art and prized antiques can be seen throughout, but book the Affresco Suite to bask in the details. Gaze up at the domed ceiling with its 1886 fresco by Bruschi, marvel at the antique stone bathtub, or study the two oil canvases by Gabriel van der Leeuw. The opulent, period decor is balanced with modern amenities. Be sure to explore the surrounding town of Fiesole: The hotel’s charming restaurant, La Cucina, can prepare a picnic for you to enjoy in the countryside.
