The Awakening of Tuscan Hospitality

As the Tuscan landscape awakens, so do its luxurious accommodations. Belmont Villa San Michele, with its stunning vistas and renowned restaurant La Loggia, is now open for the season. Imagine enjoying an aperitif as the sun sets over the Tuscan hills – it’s an experience that epitomizes the essence of Italian elegance. Similarly, Borgo Santo Pietro reopens its doors, offering another exquisite retreat in the heart of Tuscany.

With its elegant ambiance and prime location, The Place Firenze is a perfect choice for guests who want to be at the center of it all.

A Festival of Florals: Flower Shows and Garden Openings

April also brings the Firenze Flower Show at the Corsini Gardens. This botanical extravaganza, happening from April 6 to 7, is a celebration of rare plants and gardening artistry. Engage in educational workshops and admire the creative demonstrations – it is a haven for plant lovers.

The Plant and Flower Market Exhibition, celebrating 170 years of the Tuscan Horticultural Society, transforms Giardino dell’Orticoltura into a floral wonderland from April 15 to May 1. This event, featuring 75 specialist exhibitors, offers botanical illustration workshops, book presentations, and artistic performances, ensuring a memorable experience for visitors of all ages.

Don't miss the annual opening of the Iris Garden, nestled beneath Piazzale Michelangelo. Open from April 25 until May 20, this garden offers a tranquil escape, with free admission (donations welcomed).

The Bardini Gardens also beckon with their spring beauty. Known for the “wisteria hysteria” towards the end of April, these gardens offer a breathtaking floral spectacle, free to Florence residents with proof of address.
