I’d wake up in…

Florence, Italy

And stay at…

The Hotel Pitti Palace al Ponte Vecchio, close to the Medieval Ponte Vecchio over the Arno River, close to the Galleria degli Uffizi, the Vasari Corridor and Palazzo Pitti.

Breakfast would be…

I always look after myself so it would have to be fruit salad and muesli. Sometimes if I’m feeling adventurous I’ll have some bone-dry fette biscottate (dried, packaged squares of “toast”), sometimes dipped into an oversized cup of steamingcaffè latte.

I would wear…

One of my Savile Row tailors, a suit from Kilgour or Huntsman. Always with my bespoke Launer document case, it never leaves my side.

And take these travel essentials…

My Kindle.

I’d listen to…

Mozart.

And visit…

The Piazzale Michelangelo – it’s the most famous square with a fantastic panoramic view of the city.

Have lunch at…

A small osteria.

Buy…

A mans handbag – there are many highly curated stores in Florence, all family-run that offer something more unique than retail stores and I will always look for bespoke pieces here when I have the time.

Hang out with…

My wife.

Relax at…

At the Piazza Della Signoria, in front of the Palazzo Vecchio

Drink…

Prosecco

Chat with…

My Italian friends who I’ve known for a number of years

And wind down the evening having dinner at…

Il Palagio at the Four Seasons Hotel Firenze, it has French doors that open onto a summer terrace that offer scenic views of the Four Seasons private garden. There is also a Winery Room with around 400 bottles on display. They have awonderful dessert that is a chocolate and hazelnut cylinder with caramel ice cream and an espresso sabayon.

Why Florence?

It is a beautiful, old city with some of the most awe-inspiring architecture in the world.
