Expert Reviews
If asked to picture a postcard version of Florence, the views from the Grand Hotel Minerva are most likely what would come to mind.
Travel + Leisure
Behind a traditional gold-and-stucco exterior, this five-story medieval structure is now a four-star hotel furnished by architects Detti and Scarpa.

With its rooftop swimming pool, the Grand Minerva does full justice to the romance of Florence. Watching the sunset from here or from the adjacent bar is a memorable experience.
