What: A Ferragamo-founded luxury hotel of avant-garde design and exceptional quality.

Where: Beside the Ponte Vecchio in the art wonderland of Florence.

Why: The Gallery Hotel Art, the youngest and trendiest member of the Lungarno family of hotels, has firmly placed itself as a gallery of reputation for exhibitions in Florence. With a display that changes every six months, the hotel has shown works from the likes of Helmut Newton, David LaChapelle and Stephen Klein. The bar, one of the premier hotspots in town, boasts an impressive cocktail list and the restaurant prides itself on its unique fusion of Japanese/Italian cuisine. For those lucky enough to be staying in the penthouse suites, the views of the Ponte Vecchio and surrounding city from their seventh floor terraces are spectacular. All this goes together to make a stay at the Gallery Hotel Art both a stimulating and a very relaxing experience.
