Magical Winter Days in Florence with Rocco Forte’s Hotel Savoy

December 14, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Rocco Forte Hotel SavoyIf you're lucky enough to pass through Florence during the holiday season, you'll be treated to endless yuletide delights: the city's sites decked in colorful lights, ice-skating on Piazza della Liberta, a festive market on Piazza Santa Croce brimming with handmade gifts, concerts and performances, and the huge, illuminated tree on Piazza della Republicca. But after New Year's Eve is just as fine a time to visit Florence. The winter sales start on January 7 so you can pick up some fashionable bargains; February's Artisan Chocolate Fair means all of Tuscany's finest chocolatiers descend on Piazza Santa Croce; and new exhibitions include a celebration of trompe l'oeil at the Palazzo Strozzi. Best of all: When you take a winter break in Florence, you can explore the magnificent Renaissance city without the crowds.
