Pitti Fragance: a commemoration of perfume in Florence

In Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, the German writer Patrick Süskind wrote: “Odors have a power of persuasion stronger than that of words, appearances, emotions, or will. The persuasive power of an odor cannot be fended off, it enters into us like breath into our lungs, it fills us up, imbues us totally. There is no remedy for it”.

Here in Florence we absolutely agree with Mr. Süskind. In fact, such is the importance we give to aromas that we want to invite you to the annual commemoration of perfume art and industry: the new edition of Pitti Fragance.

This year the event is going to be celebrated from September 12th to 14th at la Stazione Leopolda and is going to be divided into two sections; Spring will be dedicated to the youngest brands in the market while Charms will include all the accessories involved with the perfume sphere, like jewellery. Besides, the special exhibition Verba Olent will explore the links between literature and perfume.

So, from Il Salviatino, your 5 stars hotel in Florence, we tell you that, if you want to go through a whole experience of delight, Pitti Fragance is a date for you.

Where to find the best ‘gelato’ in Florence

One of the best things of the summer is that you can enjoy a creamy, tasty and always refreshing ice cream and feel like a kid again.

Italy is well-known for being the most delicious ice creams’ place in the world.

In case you’re coming to Florence this summer, sooner or later you’ll wonder “Where can I find a good gelato?”. Following, you’ll find some suggestions:

If you’re near Santa Croce, you can visit Vivoli, in Via Isole delle Stinche 7r, most of all if you like the fruit tastes.

When you’re going by Il Palazzo Vecchio, Gelateria de’Neri, Via dei Neri 22r, won’t let you down.

If you’re in the Oltrarno area, you can go to Gelateria La Carraia (Piazza Sauro Nazario, 25r – Ponte alla Carraia) or Gelateria Della Passera (Via Toscanella 15r) and start enjoying.

Close to the Duomo (Via del Campanile corner with Via delle Oche) you can find the excellent Italian worldwide chain Grom. On the other side, Gelateria de’ Medici, at Via dello Statuto 3/5, is not in the center of Florence, but it’s one of the best gelaterias in the city.

In Florence there is also an ice cream shop that has been recently elected as one the best 20 ones in the world: Carapina, at Piazza Guglielmo Oberdan 2/r.

And of course, at Il Salviatino, you can have the best ice cream with the best views of Florence at the same time, from the top of Fiesole’s hill.

There’s still a lot summer ahead. Let’s have fun! Let’s enjoy Florence.

Where classical music meets modernity: L’Opera di Firenze

In a previous article we wrote about Florence as a gastronomic capital. Today we want to widen that concept by not only calling it a gastronomic capital, but a whole modern, avant-garde capital. The Opera house (L’Opera di Firenze) is a proof of it. Built to host more than 2000 spectators in its outdoor cavea and with 1100 seats in the auditorium, The Opera house was thought to be a piece of contemporary architectural design that connects the historical with the youngest side of Tuscany’s heart. And of course, as an undeniable meeting point for artists and citizens, The Opera house is hosting the 77th edition of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, a true example of Florence’s rich cultural life and an event of international renown.
This year the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino is including a variety of activities, from classical music to cinema, from conferences to dance, in order to reach everyone’s preferences.

From Il Salviatino, your 5 stars hotel in Florence, we sincerely invite you to live this experience of complete enjoyment in our city. We are waiting for you!
