Belmond Villa San Michele, Florence - Italy
Michelangelo himself is said to have had a hand in the design of the Villa San Michele, a former 15th century monastery that has been expertly transformed into a stunning boutique hotel. The location high in the Tuscan hills affords breathtaking views of Florence, one of the many reasons why we think this is one of Italy’s most romantic hotels.

The Michelangelo Suite once served as Napoleon Bonaparte’s headquarters in Florence and stretches the whole length of the hotel’s facade, while the Limonaia Suite boasts a private plunge pool and can interconnect to create a three bedroom villa.
