The sleek Continentale hotel sits directly across the street from the Gallery Hotel Arts, and its La Terrazza rooftop bar boasts views of the Arno River and the Ponte Vecchio.

Indagare Loves

  • 1950’s style in each room, with a crisp white color scheme accented with warm wood tones
  • Drinks on La Terrazza’s rooftop
  • The medieval Consorti tower, which includes the Penthouse–one of the earliest Florentine structures remaining in the city


If the Hotel Lungarno is the sophisticated older sister and the Gallery Hotel Art is the glam younger sister of the Lungarno Collection family, the Continentale is the quietly romantic middle sibling. Its forty-three rooms and suites offer an intimate getaway with views of the Arno River and furnishings inspired by the fashion and design of the 1950’s (think canopy beds, retro furniture, handcrafted leather, chrome lamps and light woods). All rooms have Tuscan Soul by Salvatore Ferragamo bath products and clever touches such as oversized clocks that double as bedside tables.

You can enjoy a cocktail at the rooftop terrace bar, La Terrazza (or in the trendy White Hall bar on the first floor), before heading over to the Fusion or Borgo San Jacopo restaurants at the sister properties of the Lungarno collection, and sign the bill to your room at the end of the night. You can also partake in morning yoga classes on the rooftop terrace, receive preferential treatment at the nearby Ferragamo store, and treatments in Continentale’s White Iris Beauty Spa by Daniela Steiner. Guests can also book a suite with a terrace and views of the Arno River, or splurge on the Consorti Penthouse, which occupies the top floor of the property’s medieval tower, for the ultimate views of the city and surrounding hillside. The property underwent a renovation in 2013 to spruce up the central spaces.

Who Should Stay

The Continentale is a conveniently located, romantic option for couples (thanks to the rooftop bar and spa). However, those with children or who require a restaurant and twenty-four-hour room service should consider the Four Seasons Florence.
