Monday Morning Ahhhh: Hotel Loggiato Dei Serviti, Florence
Waking up on a Monday morning (especially after a holiday weekend) can be pretty tough -- but it isn't so hard to do at the Hotel Loggiato Dei Serviti. Located in Piazza della Santissima Annunziata -- one of Renaissance Florence's most stunning architectural complexes -- this 16th-century property boasts a grand entrance of beautiful arches and columns. But the Tuscan elegance doesn't end there: Wood-beamed ceilings, antique furnishings, and rich fabrics exude a classic Florentine vibe throughout the hotel. Still, nothing is more breathtaking than the views from the guestrooms. Adorable private terraces featuring flower boxes look out towards the Duomo so guests can sip on freshly-brewed espresso and greet the day — and the city — with a smile. But until then, as we say every week, sit back, relax, and soak in the goodness that is the Hotel Loggiato Dei Serviti.
