Best Photography Locations in Four Season Hotel

The Four Season Hotel is a prestigious luxury hotel that is part of a famous chain of Canadian hotels, the Four Season Hotel Inc. They are known for their high standard of luxury: they have been judged by Five Diamonds Hotels and Resort, one of the guides for the world’s tallest hotels with the highest standard. The Four Season Hotel is located in the center of Florence, for precision in Borgo Pinti, a stone’s throw from the ring road. The hotel is housed in one of the most beautiful Renaissance palaces in Florence, Palazzo della Gherardesca. The palace was built in a very short time around the end of 1400 on a property owned by the Hospital of the Innocents. It was realized by Bartolomeo Scala, a trusted man of Lorenzo the Magnificent. The oldest part of the structure, a magnificent square courtyard rich in bas-reliefs, was later absorbed by the great reconstruction carried out in the 1500’s and reflects the current plant of the villa. The palace became the property of the Medici family by way of inheritance, through the three nuns of the Scala. In those years it was embellished with paintings, decorations and later enlarged thanks to the acquisition of a neighboring land belonging to the Art of Wool. In 1605, with the election to the pontificate of the Medici family, the property of the palace passed to his sister Constance, who married Ugo of Gherardesca.

The family maintained the property for three centuries, during which many of the interventions that enriched the palace were made, such as the refurbishment of the main façade overlooking the Borgo Pinti and the south side, works done in the early 1500s. the interior of the palace underwent radical changes, maintaining only the original courtyard almost unaltered. During the period of Florence capital, much of the city was overthrown, with the demolition of the walls and the construction of the ring roads. The Palazzo della Gherardesca was also interested in many changes, such as the monumental entrance to the garden on the Viale Matteotti. Of these interventions was the architect Poggi, famous for the great interventions made on the city at that time. The palace is considered a national art heritage since 1900. The Four Season Hotel is one of the most luxurious and elegant structures in the city of Florence, often chosen as a wedding reception venue, both of Italian and above all foreign couples. Many of these couples realize their own symbolic marriage directly in the garden of the Gherardesca villa. The on-demand facility can provide all the services that can serve the couple, like flowers or photographer.
