Refurbished in 2017, there has never been a better time to stay at the wonderful Hotel Lungarno. Perched on the river Arno with the stunning Ponte Vecchio in the background, a nautical theme of cool whites and marine blues infuses the décor of the hotel.
A haul of 450 pieces of contemporary modern art adorns the walls of the hotel, while rooms, suites and studios are classically furnished. Many rooms boast fantastic views of the river and some enjoy their own private terrace.
Dining in style
It’s no surprise that these stylish rooms are accompanied by some excellent dining options. Hotel Lungarno is delighted to offer its Michelin-starred restaurant, Borgo San Jacopo, which serves an opulent menu of exquisite fish, meat and pasta dishes. Afterwards, head to La Terrazza Bar at the top of the nearby Consorti tower for some of the finest views of Florence. The hotel’s Picteau Lounge Bar is also a great place for lighter bites and fabulous cocktails.
The Continentale Hotel, on the other side of the river to Lungarno, hosts the White Iris Spa. Soak up a range of massages, beauty treatments and the amazing pro-sleep experience, which offers 60 minutes of pure tranquillity. The hotel’s brilliant concierge team can arrange a number of unique experiences and excursions for guests. If you want to brush up on your photography skills, the Lungarno Leica workshop offers the opportunity to explore the city while picking up some tips on how to use this iconic camera.
If you prefer artisanal craft work, explore the Pampaloni silver factory, where you can learn about the silversmith process and even commission your own pieces. If younger travellers are part of your group, enrol them in the VIK Children Program, where they can see some amazing works of Leonardo Da Vinci and Galileo Galilei, and have fun making their own Italian pizzas.

Find out what our clients have to say about their experiences
We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
