Located just a few minutes from the hotel, Cappelle Medicee and the ancient Basilica di San Lorenzo, consecrated in 393 and reconstructed in the first half of the fifteenth-century by Brunelleschi on behalf of the Medici family.
The greatness and extraordinary wealth of the Cappella dei Principi is on view, octagonal and entirely covered in marble, hard stones, gems and bronze gilt. Another marvelous creation from the late Renaissance period is the New Sacristy in white marble, started by Michelangelo in 1520 for the Medici family and finished some decades later by Vasari.
Continuing your walk in the historic center, you can admire the church and museum of San Marco, where the works of Beato Angelico are preserved, or the Basilica di Santa Croce which hosts works by Giotto, Cimabue and Brunelleschi. A short distance away, you will find the Duomo (Santa Maria del Fiore), with its impressive dome designed by Brunelleschi and frescoed by Vasari. The splendid Piazza della Signoria hosts the most famous museum in the world, the Uffizi Gallery and, just a short distance ahead, the picturesque Ponte Vecchio or Old Bridge, one of the symbols of Florence.
