Villa Cora is a fantastic property that looks and feels like many palaces I have visited! Amazing pool that made all the difference and is just what you need after a warm day exploring the city. If you are looking at traveling to Florence, stop looking, you need to stay here. Stay at any other property and you’ve missed an opportunity to have a unique experience at an amazing place in Florence.

This is the most beautiful hotel we have ever stayed at. This is our second time back and I would not stay at any other place while visiting Florence. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable bedding. The staff are all so friendly and treat you like royalty. The food is gourmet. I can't say enough about The Villa Cora. They have my heart!!!
