The Grand Hotel Minerva is a 4-star superior boutique hotel in the heart of Florence’s historic center in its illustrious Piazza Santa Maria Novella. After years of renovation, the Piazza has now been returned to its historic magnificence and is a peaceful heaven for pedestrians replete with public green space, restaurants, bars and cafés.
Florence’s key tourist attractions are all just a lovely few minutes’ stroll away, including Piazza del Duomo with its glorious cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Piazza della Repubblica, the Uffizi museum, Ponte Vecchio and Florence’s most eminent luxury shopping street, Via Tornabuoni. Other locations in walking distance include Palazzo degli Affari, the Firenze Fiera Centro Congressi and the Fortezza Da Basso (the location of top international conferences and exhibitions, such as the Pitti Uomo and Pitti Bimbo.)
All of these sites can be admired in a spectacular, sweeping view of Florence from the Grand Hotel Minerva’s terrace on the sixth floor. When our swimming pool and pool bar open (from May to September), the scenic terrace becomes a place like no other to relax, revive and enjoy Florence’s beauty, while having a bite under the sun umbrellas.
