Information pertaining to our club members in light of the COVID-19 pandemic - Special conditions apply at the Baglioni Relais Santa Croce
Florence is not short of palazzos that bring you close to its history, but for a true taste of aristocratic living amid period furnishings and Renaissance-era vaulted ceilings with gorgeous frescoes, the Baglioni Relais Santa Croce can’t be beat. For a start, there is the location of it, just a skip and a hop away from the Santa Croce church. Then, of course, there is the white-glove service, and some of the largest suites in Florence, including the Santa Croce Royal Suite with its Jacuzzi and Turkish bath, and a decor that is as luxurious as it is chic. From most rooms, views of the city beyond are postcard-perfect, but the pièce de résistance has got to be the Sala di Musica ballroom where Florentine artists make regular appearances under a magnificent chandelier inspired by a drawing of Leonardo da Vinci. Come here for a late-afternoon aperitivo before heading to chef Niccolò del Riu's Guelfi & Ghibellini Restaurant for classic Tuscan cuisine served to more 18th-century splendour.
