At the end of September, I treat myself to stay in Florence, a city I love very much. I heard about the new opening of a hotel in the historic center and I wanted to try it as soon as possible. Really a good choice: I spent 4 dream days at the exclusive Hotel Calimala in Florence. The 4-star hotel surprised me at first glance: it is housed in a historic building with a facade decorated with angels in relief ... a true work of art!
The wonder continues inside the building, in the elegant white marble lobby. The rooms combine antique materials and modern design, for a result in a modern art deco style. My room boasted a balcony overlooking the most characteristic streets of the Florentine center, so beautiful.
But the element that I loved most is definitely the rooftop with a 360 ° view of the city skyline and the Tuscan hills all around. The atmosphere is intimate and relaxing, thanks to many plants making it a sort of secret garden in the heart of Florence. The rooftop is divided on three levels, from which you can admire unknown perspectives of the Medici homeland.
To eat something good, try the restaurant of the Hotel Calimala: Angel Rooftop & Bar, located on the rooftop. The restaurant is open all day long: it was pleasant to know that, upon returning to the room after a busy day, I just had to climb a few steps to enjoy a refreshing cocktail, an appetizing snack or a gourmet dish. And the breathtaking view of Florence is always included in the price, an irresistible incentive!
