In an almost dream-like location, Villa Cora is an exceptional place to stay when visiting Florence, Italy. The property presents like a museum. Walls and ceilings reflecting the artistic beauty of Florence. Each room, modernized of course, still retains the feeling of a Medici palace. Breakfasts...more of a banquet than a meal, was excellent but the real excellence comes from the Staff and its desire to attend to your every need. Quality and service are their goals and this makes a stay at Villa Cora a true vacation. And, although located a bit away from city center, the available shuttle and the simply great drivers, add to the stay. Each short trip to the city becomes a little unexpected private tour of this beautiful region of Italy. If you dream of visiting Florence, Villa Cora does its best to make this dream come true!
