Four Seasons Hotel Firenze knows how to celebrate a birthday in style. To mark its 10th year of exceptional service, the hotel will be throwing a three-day bash to remember.
The hotel first opened its doors in 2008, following a meticulous seven-year renovation of the historical 15th century Palazzo – first built in 1473 by the Chancellor of the Florentine Republic Bartolomeo Scala, and the 17th century La Villa, built by the Del Nero family.
Now the hotel, with its 11 acres of manicured gardens, relaxing spa and historical suites, has established itself as one of the best hotels in the world. Its Michelin-starred restaurant Il Palagio, seasonal trattoria Al Fresco, Atrium Cocktail Bar and Pool Tree bar are favourite spots for foodies and Florentines alike. Whether you’re wishing to taste the best regional specialties and or sip innovative cocktails, this property is the place to do so.
To celebrate this milestone anniversary, the hotel will host a three-day birthday celebration. Here’s what’s in store for lucky guests:
1 Hot Air Balloon
On Thursday, June 14, a customised golden hot-air balloon will land in the Hotel’s Della Gherardesca garden, ready to take hotel guests up in the sky, where they will enjoy the best view ever of the city of Florence.
2 Anniversary Dinner Party
On June 14, a dinner show with live entertainment will take place with an exclusive performance by Nu’Art dancers and acrobats, themed after “Brilliant Celebrations,” recalling the time when the Hotel was a Palazzo inhabited by nobles and popes. The evening will include an aperitif in the Hotel’s garden, and a buffet dinner by the Hotel’s Michelin-starred Chef Vito Mollica and a dessert buffet by Executive Pastry Chef Domenico di Clemente.
3 Birthday Photo Booth
On Friday, June 15 the actual day of the Hotel’s anniversary, guests checking in will have the opportunity to capture the moment with a photo booth and special background imagined by Artistic Designer Vincenzo Dascanio. Say cheese!
PLUS: In the afternoon, 5,000 gold balloons will be released in the sky from the Hotel garden, and the celebrations will end with a stunning fireworks display.
