A relaxing stay at a chic guesthouse in Florence’s Santa Croce district, with breakfast, dining discount and extras

Fuelled by Renaissance wonders, the capital of Tuscany dazzles with history at every turn, from the iconic Uffizi Gallery and Galleria dell'Accademia museums to the beautiful Ponte Vecchio Bridge and the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore (simply known as the Duomo). Not to mention the legacy of Italian greats such as Michelangelo, Galileo, and Botticelli.

So it’s not hard to see why this little guesthouse in the heart of Santa Croce is such a gem, not least for its setting overlooking Bardini Gardens. There are just four spacious rooms, all of which are completely different and adorned with specific woods: chestnut, cypress, walnut, or oak, as well as plenty of greenery and Scandi-style furnishings.

Kick-start a day of sightseeing with a buffet-style American, French, English or Italian breakfast, and for a change of scene, the guesthouse has a lovely terrace for summer drinks or post-sightseeing chill-out, as well as an adjoining restaurant that’s perfect for anytime cocktails, daily lunches and dinners, and nightly DJ beats.

Delicious breakfasts (American, English, French or Italian) worth getting out of bed for are served every morning in the dining room. There’s also a lovely terrace overlooking Bardini Garden that’s perfect for summer drinks and post-sightseeing chill-out. While there is no onsite restaurant, the adjoining Moyo Bar is the perfect spot for cocktails on the terrace, lunch and dinners, and nightly DJ sets.

You’ll be staying in Santa Croce, the district most famous for its Basilica di Santa Croce that probably contains more Renaissance tombs than any other in Italy (Michelangelo, Machiavelli, Galilei, Rossini, and more). Aside from grave-hopping, must-dos in the Tuscan capital include drooling over huge Botticelli paintings at the incredible Uffizi Gallery, marvelling at Michelangelo’s David at the Galleria dell'Accademia, climbing Duomo’s Dome or Giotto’s Tower (or both), and checking out the collection of botanical and zoological specimens at La Specola - Florence University’s natural history museum.

Further thrills include checking out the high-end designer boutiques (Gucci, Prada, Burberry, Tiffany and Co.) on Via Tornabuoni, stocking up on leather bags and shoes at San Lorenzo Marks, people-watching at Piazza della Signoria, and enjoying ravishing city views from Piazzale Michelangelo on the bank of the Arno River. Benci House is a 25-minute drive from Florence Airport.
