An elegant stay at a former convent in the heart of Florence close to the Duomo, with breakfast and a welcome drink

Madonna was right – Italians do it better. Whether it's service or style, the The J & J Historic House Hotel is every Material Girl’s dream in Florence. A 16th-century convent turned four-star hotel, this historic building packs a lot in beneath its vaulted ceilings. Original artwork, frescoes and antiques sit alongside comfortable, contemporary furnishings in the guest rooms, which celebrate the city’s historic and elegant past.

Kick-start the day with a steaming cup of strong espresso and a hearty breakfast, before setting off to take in the impressive Duomo, the Basilica of Sante Croce, the city's renowned leather market and the magical Ponte Vecchio, all easily accessible from your Italian retreat.

Good to know

Some upstairs rooms are reached by a steep or spiral staircases. Those with mobility concerns may prefer to request a room on the ground floor.
