Notes to Editors
Located on the historic Piazza della Repubblica, Hotel Savoy, the Rocco Forte Hotel in Florence, is the perfect place to absorb the intoxicating Florentine atmosphere. Guests are moments away from the Uffizi, the Duomo and the Ponte Vecchio. Hotel Savoy epitomises contemporary Italian style; rooms and suites all feature carefully chosen ceramics while the bathrooms are decorated with mosaics. The fitness centre on the top floor has panoramic views over the Duomo, and, in summer, the hotel’s popular “L’Incontro Bar and Restaurant” spills out onto the square.
