Villa Cora is a fantastic property that looks and feels like many palaces I have visited! Amazing pool that made all the difference and is just what you need after a warm day exploring the city. If you are looking at traveling to Florence, stop looking, you need to stay here. Stay at any other property and you’ve missed an opportunity to have a unique experience at an amazing place in Florence.

The facility itself was gorgeous. The common areas luxurious and historic. The free shuttle to downtown was a very good idea, since the location is a bit far from the sites.
