A city within reach
Hotel Cellai is located in the heart of the historic center of Florence, surrounded by monuments, churches and buildings of extraordinary beauty. All the most interesting and evocative city sites are within a short walking distance, passing through little streets full of charm and mystery.
This exclusive hotel in Florence is very close to the San Lorenzo Market, hosted in a gigantic iron and glass building, where natives gather to buy local food and wine specialties. The Galleria dell'Accademia is just a short distance away, hosting the famous David by Michelangelo, as is the Duomo with its splendid dome by Brunelleschi.
The staff of Hotel Cellai are always available to advise you on alternative or lesser known itineraries, therefore helping you find an undiscovered Florence which remains unknown to mass tourism. These itineraries include small, hidden churches and age-old shops which still retain their old world charm, despite the passing of the centuries. Examples include the Santa Maria Novella laboratory, one of the oldest pharmacies in the world, where one can buy essences and perfumes based on formulas devised for Caterina de' Medici around 1500.
For an itinerary dedicated to the flavors of Tuscany, we would be delighted to offer suggestions of the best delis and restaurants in the city, where one can find a sense of artistic creativity even in the typical dishes prepared by the best Tuscan chefs.
