A question that would be just perfect for a quiz show: Which city is the so-called Italian Athens and cultural capital of the world?
The correct reply, of course, is Florence: majestic city on the Arno River and Tuscan capital that is world-famous for its arts, culture and age-old traditions. It is a city that lives and breathes history.

by a carefully understated elegance.
The location could not be more perfect: The Gallery Art Hotel is located a stone’s throw from the famous Ponte Vecchio. A member of the exquisite hotel collection Lungarno, the Art Hotel is the crowning jewel in the Ferragamo family empire.
The name Ferragamo is associated with designer clothing, elegant footwear and precious fragrances. It was back in the nineties, that the Gallery Art Hotel completed the portfolio of extravagant products for the discerning consumer.
Those that have experienced the Ferragamo product line will expect a sophisticated personal note coupled with irresistible charm – and they will see their expectations exceeded!
Incidentally, Gallery Art is to be taken literally: Contemporary art ranging from experimental photography and sculptures to paintings is exhibited throughout the entire house. The Art Hotel’s concept is quite simply to make you feel at home amidst art.
Additional modern arts events and exhibitions are staged at regular intervals. The Gallery Art Hotel changes, evolves and revolutionises its interior, visitors and art itself. The contemporary orientation does not disagree with but rather complements Florence’s ancient beauty.
Quite naturally, the funky style also extents itself to the innovative cuisine: The fusion bar Shozan adds one part classic Mediterranean flavour and one part Asian spiciness to the pot. Stir and let simmer for a magnificent union of East and West.
The Fusion Bar Shozan has become quite popular not only with the hotel guests but with an international clientele that includes celebrities just like locals. Take your palate on a culinary journey across the globe – all in Florence!
