Villa San MicheleDid you know that 2009 is the year of Astronomy? Florence is celebrating Galileo Galilei, and the 400th anniversary of the telescope, with an exhibit honoring the great scientist in the Palazzo Strozzi. The luxurious Villa San Michele invites you to get closer to the stars with a special package through the end of the month. Priced from EUR 1855, the package includes: two nights accommodation in a Deluxe Double Room, full American buffet breakfast daily, one candle-lit dinner for two at La Loggia Restaurant, a midnight swim under the stars with Champagne, and two tickets to Galileo Galilei's exhibition at Palazzo Strozzi.
