Over the top!

Pros: Felt like a King! Quiet, relaxing and magical
Cons: Hard to find anything to improve upon!
Location: Take the shuttle downtown and call for pick up. It was easy. The spa is wonderful...
If you really want to spoil yourself stay here!!! The hotel is like staying in your own private palace! The staff was brilliant, attentive and exceptionally accommodating. The walk from the hotel to downtown is a bit long but the shuttle service was excellent and easy to use. What an easy escape from the busy city streets and crowds of tourists. Our food was excellent. I recommend the Sunday brunch. It is busy and appears to be a favorite visit for the local elite. For reference, we also stayed at the Portrait hotel for 3 nights. Completely different experiences but both exceptional. The Villa Cora was the perfect way to close out a magical trip to Florence and Tuscany.
