Villa San Michele, Florence

The 15th-century façade of this iconic Florence property can be attributed to the city’s most famous Renaissance artist: Michelangelo. Positioned in the hillside town of Fiesole, just above the city, the villa has had many incarnations, including a Franciscan monastery, before being turned into a renowned boutique hotel. The gardens, with lemon trees and rose-scented air, immediately convey to guests that they have arrived someplace special. Each room and suite is unique, with sumptuous antiques and lovely views, along with cotto-tile flooring and bright Florentine textiles. Naturally, the property draws many honeymooners, though the Villa’s acclaimed cooking school attracts students and well-known chefs from around the world.
