Hotel Savoy is built on the site where the Mercato Vecchio and church of San Tommaso once stood. Work on the hotel started in 1893 and, once completed, it was praised for its modern and luxurious touches — including central heating, an elevator and even electric lights.
The impressive collection of artworks at Hotel Savoy includes significant paintings by Italian artist Luca Pignatelli. You’ll find his striking depictions of statues’ heads in the lobby.
Craftsmanship & Fashion
To celebrate Florence’s renowned reputation for craftsmanship and fashion, works by contemporary artists featuring shoes and hats appear throughout the hotel.
