Relais Santa Croce by Baglioni Hotels & Resorts

Relais Santa Croce by Baglioni Hotels & Resorts

The dreamy Relais Santa Croce by Baglioni Hotels & Resorts can be found in an 18th century palazzo that lies at the historic heart of Florence. There’s an air of enchantment here, created by hand-sculpted reliefs and original frescoes, a majestic ballroom, large sunlit windows and imposing fireplaces.


The atmosphere is timeless and magical and to stay here is to be surrounded by art and beauty. The charming rooms feature four poster beds, exposed beams, earthy terracotta, parquet and wood trim, while suites are among the grandest in Florence, defined by original 18th century frescoes. The Presidential Suite boasts a Turkish bath with chromotherapy and Jacuzzi. Cuisine is designed to offer a sensory journey and flavour of local tradition.

Dine on classic Tuscan dishes at the stylish Guelfi & Ghibellini Restaurant, sheltered in the dramatic 18th century halls. Tea is a daily ritual as well as a refreshing beverage and there’s a choice of 250 types, all served in little works of art: cups made by Italy’s most important porcelain maker, Richard Ginori. What better place to enjoy the finest infusions than in a space steeped in aristocratic grandeur. Afternoon tea comes complete with delicious cakes, sandwiches, artisanal biscuits, and musicians from Florence’s most prestigious academies.
