The hotel has reopened its doors after an extensive renovation and expansion that, thanks to the contribution of master Florentine artisans, have preserved the original 19th-century building, giving it with 25 new rooms and suites signed by the internationally renowned designer Anouska Hempel. There is also a new restaurant curated by Cibrèo, and a brand new spa that will be inaugurated in spring 2022 where once the ancient Roman baths stood.
