If you would consider yourself a history buff or a lover of art, and are also looking for a place to stay in northern Italy, this Florence hotel is a hand restored 15th century villa. Hotel Il Salviatino is located in the northeastern outskirts of the city, which was a hub during the Renaissance.

Previous to opening in 2010, the villa underwent renovations that unearthed a number of secret mazes in the garden and long-lost fresco paintings. The boutique hotel is also near Tuscany, and therefore perfect for those looking to experience the Italian countryside. In addition to stunning grounds, the Florence hotel boasts restored artworks and antique bathtubs integrated into modern furnishings and contemporary design.
