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!

A short trip to the East at Casa Martelli

There is a kind of magic in the Middle East that fascinates us; a passion that started during the 19th century. Napoleon’s campaigns had a lot to do with the beginning of it, because the western civilization could take a look at the Eastern mysteries for the first time. Several men of that time went abroad to discover themselves these incredible, unseen territories. And one of them was Carlo Martelli (1850 – 1945) who travelled to the Holy Land with some friends. Between the 26th August and the 24th October 1879 they visited Alexandria, Cairo Port Said, Jaffa, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Emmaus, the Dead Sea, the Sea of Galilee, Nazareth, Damascus and Beirut. When he came back home, he brought some extraordinary souvenirs, like the 24 portraits that now make Viaggio in Oriente, the exhibition that started last June and that have been extended until the 10th May, at Casa Martelli, on Thursdays from 2 pm. to 7 pm. and on Saturdays from 9 am. to 2 pm.

The young Carlo Martelli feel in love with the colors, the costumes and the light of these exotic places. He praised the painters and photographers who captured that beautiful essence because he could bring a little of it back home. And now, we thank him for we have inherited such a great legacy from his part.

And from Il Salviatino, we recommend you to take a short trip to the East without even leaving Florence.

The year of Michelangelo

Can anybody tell what’s in the mind of a prodigy? Where does the mystery of his inspiration reside? We find only questions that nobody can answer when we think about the wonder of these people. All of them born to leave their permanent trace in the world… like Michelangelo, our beloved Tuscan prodigy for whom we commemorate the 470th anniversary of his death this year.

They use to call him ‘Il Divino’ (The divine) and there couldn’t had been any more proper nickname. The Renaissance wouldn’t had been the same without works like the Sistine Chapel’s ceiling (1508 – 12), just to mention one of the many masterpieces he created.

For his enormous contribution to mankind we salute him and we want to recall that wonderful time when he was an Il Salviatino’s guest. Do you remember? Read it here

That was Il Salviatino‘s little tribute to the great man Michelangelo was.

Let’s celebrate the spring’s arrival at Il Salviatino

For some people the spring means allergy. Other ones love the colors bursting and the mild temperatures. For some it means the love of joy and youth… and for Il Salviatino, your 5 stars hotel in Florence, the spring implies a cheerful invitation to all of you to come, visit us and celebrate the arrival of this glorious season. If you book your room at Il Salviatino before the 31st March for stays until the end of May, you will get a special discount: the room rates start from €275.

We are not going to lie. It does not matter the moment of the year, because Florence always looks good. Of course, there are always interesting and fun things to do in town, no matter when one comes. But the truth is that visiting Florence during the spring has a value added. It is not as cold as in the winter, but not as hot as in the summer. A true parade of colors invades the streets. The sunlight gives even the most famous places a new appearance… and the views from the top of Fiesole’s hill take one’s breath away. 

However, it is not the point that we say all these things. The real deal is that you come and live your own experience. And remember: Both Florence and Il Salviatino will be waiting for you.
