Hotel Monna Lisa – Experience the splendor of 14th century Florence, Italy

Journey back to 14th century Florence when you visit the elegant Hotel Monna Lisa located in the city centre.  Capturing the spirit of the Renaissance in every detail, this convent-turned-palazzo-turned-hotel is magnificently appointed with its antique period furnishings and original masterpieces of art, all framed by original Renaissance architecture!  Plus, there's a lush and verdant courtyard adjoining the various buildings that comprise the Hotel Monna Lisa. Stroll along the fragrant walkways and you'll swear you've been transported you to the hills of Tuscany. It was a place to call home while we journeyed to Montepulicano, Pienza, Siena, and Fiesole and you too, should make it your home if you're planning a visit.  Read more about the magnificent Hotel Monna Lisa and be sure to view the accompanying slideshow for your virtual tour.

Here are teaser views for you:

Throughout the Hotel, be sure to admire the artwork and the hotel's unique collection of its namesake's portrait of the Mona Lisa. You will revel in the reproductions both classical and comical.  This particular shot is of the opposing wall of the room in the photo above.

Throughout the Hotel Monna Lisa, you can relax in any one of the cozy and charming rooms.

    I fell in love with this place the first time I stayed there and there's no other place I'll stay in Florence. Funny enough, I found it on the internet and fell in love with the courtyard views! Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts.

  5. It's funny to see how many people have discovered & now appreciate this hotel which I lived next door to while studying in Florence in the early '70's! Back then the Mona Lisa was a tired-looking rather run-down pensione but with old-world charm neveetheless,, especially that beautiful courtyard. Great to hear that you love it, Jeff!
