Attractions near the Grand Hotel Minerva
Sightsee in style as you lounge under the Tuscan sunshine in an open-air pool with a drink in hand from the pool bar, while taking in some of the iconic sights of Florence. The Grand Minerva Hotel offers this unique experience during the summer months when the pool is open, but the view can be enjoyed year-round from the scenic roof terrace.
Florence from the Piazzale Michelangelo
The view from the Piazzale Michelangelo is so spectacular it's featured on many postcards of the city. Located high on a hillside on the opposite side of the River Arno from the hotel, the panoramic vista takes in the entire Florence skyline including major landmarks such as the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio and Palazzo Vecchio, and the Tuscan hills beyond.
The Piazzale is dedicated to the city's famous renaissance artist Michelangelo. Despite the fact that the view is what people come to see, it's worth your time wandering round to see the bronze replica David statue in the centre of the square, browse the souvenir shops and to grab a drink or a bite to eat at the restaurant.
