The hill of Bellosguardo, just outside Florence, has preserved its nature and architecture since the times of Dante and the Medicis.
Even today, ancient villas with parks and gardens immortalized in literature (Bellosguardo was the home of Guido Cavalcanti, Galileo Galilei, the Medici and Ugo Foscolo) give guests the rare privilege of magnificient view over Florence.
Here, in the silence of the garden and hills, you will find Casa Rosa with an ancient and noble history and offering guests rare hospitality and a unique atmosphere.
The Tuscany region
Located in central Italy, Tuscany is known for its rich history, art, beautiful landscapes, delicious food, and superb wines.
The beautiful cities of Florence and Siena contain some of Italy's most famous artistic treasures. Tuscany is also home to many scenic hill towns.
From the mountains in the north to the gently rolling Chianti hills and the barren Crete Senesi, the Tuscan countryside offers an ideal place to relax with family and friends.
A visit to Tuscany would not be complete without taking in the sights and sounds of one of the greatest artistic capitals in the world. Located in the northern part of Tuscany on the Arno River, the city of Florence is a beautiful monument to the Renaissance. Stay in Florence and experience Florentine life for yourself or plan a day trip if you're staying in another part of Tuscany.
The historic heart of Florence is closed to traffic and surprisingly compact. The majority of sights can be easily reached on foot so visitors do not need a car. Florence has excellent bus service which is reliable and convenient. If you are staying in Florence, you can make a day trip by train or bus to other sights in Tuscany.
After visiting the magnificent Duomo, Baptistry, and Campanile, stroll through the San Lorenzo street market and pick up fresh food at the Mercato Centrale, a two story covered market which sells fresh pasta, bread, cheese, meat, poultry, fish, ham, and fresh fruit, vegetables and flowers. A short walk towards the Arno and the Piazza della Signoria with the Palazzo Vecchio, the town hall, and the Uffizi, one of Italy's leading art galleries.
If coming by car, the closest exit from the tollway to Bellosguardo is Firenze Certosa. From the tollbooth, follow the signs for Firenze centro/Porta Romana.
When you come to Piazzale Porta Romana, take a left on Via Ugo Foscolo and climb to the top of the hill. Turn right on Via Piana and continue to Piazza di Bellosguardo, turn right again into Via Roti Michelozzi,2.
If you are arriving in Florence by plane, from Florence's Amerigo Vespucci Airport, we recommend that you take a taxi (about a 25 minute trip to the hotel) or the "Vola in bus" shuttle to Santa Maria Novella train station. From here, a 10-minute taxi ride brings you to the Torre di Bellosguardo (the hotel is at Via Roti Michelozzi, number 2).
However, if you are arriving at Pisa's Galileo Galilei Airport, we recommend that you take the Terravision bus or the train to Florence and proceed as above from Santa Maria Novella train station.
