Salviatino Collection sends you all its love today.
“No amount of fire or freshness can challenge what a man will store up in his ghostly heart.” (F.S. Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby.)
The Christmas feeling evolves as one grows up. First, when you are a child, you get the butterflies in your stomach thinking about Santa Claus and the gifts he will leave under the Christmas Tree. Later in time, as you approach adulthood, that thrill decreases. You start to value simpler (and less fantastic) things such as meeting your beloved ones, enjoying a delicious meal and having fun. Enjoyment and good company: this is what Il Salviatino pursues with its Festive Season Packages.
This year we decided to do something special in order to celebrate Christmas and so we chose to pay tribute to one of the finest literary characters of all time: The Great Gatsby. His elegance, the opulence of his parties and his inner passions (things F.S. Fitzgerald wrote about so well) are filling Il Salviatino from 23rd November to 18th January. Would you like to travel to the Golden Twenties and do the Charleston in Florence instead than in New York?
The main Festive Season Package includes:
Two nights in the room/suite of your choice
Upgrade upon availability
Il Salviatino’s daily breakfast
Entry tickets to the exhibition ‘The Russian Avant-garde: Siberia and the East’
A one hour massage per person at our Spa Il Salviatino
A three course dinner for two at Il Salviatino’s restaurant (or Christmas lunch 25th December – excluding beverages).
Plus some additional benefits: 24 hour Ambassador service, in-Room Nespresso coffee machine, in-room complimentary mineral waters at turndown, complimentary Wi-Fi, complimentary newspaper, complimentary access to gym and parking.
The package is priced from €860 + 10% VAT in a deluxe double room. This offer is aimed for two people in a double room.
Beyond the music, the laughs and the crowd, Gatsby was always alone. But this year, at Il Salviatino, we are all carrying him in our hearts. Come and join us! Let us honor him and celebrate!

Without a doubt, the most special and magical moment of the year is New Year’s Eve. As we prepare to bid goodbye to the year full of memories, we also await a new beginning filled with unknown excitement.
If we want to start the year with a positive attitude, we should follow New Year’s Eve traditions. Eating lentils before the clock strikes midnight will bring fortune to the New year. As throwing something old will give us renewed dreams. Let’s not forget about wearing red underwear underneath our best attire. This will bring us good luck as soon as the very first minute of 2012.
For this night, our luxury hotel in Florence Il Salviatino has prepared for you a very special event: “L’Epoca Garbata” (Gracious Years) , linked to the package “An Italian Christmas” . This will make your stay at the the hotel very memorable during the holiday season.
Il Salviatino has taken utmost care in organizing the details of New Year’s Eve celebration. We have prepared an exquisite dinner menu which includes dishes like Scallops with Jerusalem artichoke, asparagus and red prawn cream; Red mullet and hazelnuts with parsley and candied lemon, anchovy crumble… Last but not least, a desert that unites the essence of Christmas season with gastronomy: Christmas cake pudding with exotic fruits and berries, English vanilla sauce. And Holiday pastries.
Dinner will be accompanied by live music and entertainment to enjoy an extraordinary performance that pays tribute to the period when elegance reigned supreme in Italy.
The Roaring Twenties, ladies wrapped in long evening gowns dancing a wild swing and, for the first time, showing off their sensual legs in a stylish – and sometimes cheeky – way. The noir ambience of the Thirties, when cigarettes were taken out of shiny silver cases and smoked in the dim light.
The cheerful gaze of people dreaming of a brighter future in the Fifties, and wearing the first colorful clothing and prints. That is the essence of “L’Epoca Garbata” (Gracious Years), a performance that underlines the special aspects embodied in the first decades of the 20th century in Italy.
Guests only have to worry about enjoying this very special night. Il Salviatino provides you a unique environment to have an unforgettable start of 2012.
