The 16th-century Palazzo Roselli Cecconi was designed by one of the Medici’s favourite architects, Giuliano da Sangallo. This Florence hotel has a grown-up feel, with wood-beamed ceilings, dark velvet upholstery and parquet floors. The rooms with a view make for a wonderfully romantic base for a Florentine sojourn, with roof terraces and a colonnaded courtyard. You’re only a few paces from Florence’s church of Santa Croce and the graceful piazza of the historic centre.
