Four Seasons Hotel Firenze

From the first moment you walk into the Four Seasons Hotel Firenze, you know you’re someplace special. The property was once a monastery and the interiors are full of period details from the 16th century. Although luxurious, it’s still kid friendly — the Four Seasons goes out of their way to be a family friendly hotel, offering special perks and treats for kids.
