Around 1870 the architect Giuseppe Poggi dreamed of developing Florence. The Piazza Massimo D’Azeglio was born in the Mattonaia quarter of the city and its surrounding villas immediately became a sought after residential area for bourgeoisie, government officials and ministers of state. One of these grandly elegant, private villas eventually became the beautiful Hotel Regency – offering the only luxury accommodation in the heart of Florence. The location is imbued with a philosophy of refinement that is centuries old and it offers the best of both worlds – one of the few remaining green spaces in the city centre that also lies in close proximity to the top monuments and attractions of Florence.

The Hotel Regency is only a ten minute walk from many of the highlights the city of Florence is famous for. Our concierge has a handy multilingual walking guide to accompany you on a stroll to the Galleria dell’Accademia, the Uffizi Gallery, the Duomo of Santa Maia del Fiore, the Pitti Palace or the Church of Santa Croce. Or maybe you would like to have a private chauffeur service to drive you to Chianti, San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena or Pisa – all of Tuscany is on your doorstep after all!
