Local Area:

The Westin Excelsior, Florence is ideally located in the city’s historic center, on the banks of the Arno River. Just a short stroll from world-famous landmarks such as the Uffizzi Gallery, the spectacular Duomo, and Ponte Vecchio, the area offers incredible shopping, dining, and entertainment options.

The home of Michelangelo and da Vinci and the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance and Humanist movements, Florence offers centuries of art, architecture, and culture, and was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982.

Just a short walk from the hotel is Florence’s stylish shopping district, where you’ll find upscale designer boutiques on Via de' Tornabuoni and Via della Vigna Nuova. Steps away from the Santa Maria Novella train station is the city’s largest park, Parco delle Cascine, and Fortezza da Basso, a former military stronghold that is now used as an important center for conferences and exhibitions.

On the opposite side of the river, the Oltrano is home to small eateries, residences, and amazing tourist attractions such as San Frediano, San Niccolò, and Piazza Santo Spirito. In the summer, the Piazza Santo Spirito is the site of many neighborhood parties and festivals. The Palazzo Pitti with its old Medicean garden, the Boboli Garden, and the Piazzale Michelangelo are all located in Oltrarno as well. From Piazzale Michelangelo, you can view a medieval stretch of wall around the Belvedere that was spared from demolition in the 19th century.
