Top choice bed and breakfast in Santa Maria Novella

Footsteps from the Arno, inside beautiful 13th- to 19th-century Palazzo Gianfigliazzi, is this understated luxury hotel. Rooms are spacious and contemporary, but it's the stunning 6th-floor rooftop terrace that steals the show: lounge in the winter garden here, bask on the sun terrace, drink at the bar and swoon over Florence graciously laid out at your feet.
