A special confession from Mr. Z to Il Salviatino in relation to Christmas

When my daughter L. was just a child, I used to be her hero. We were the best friends in the world and in fact, since her mother passed away short after L. was born, it was only the two of us together, joining forces against the world. Nonetheless, she became a teenager and things changed. Now she barely ever speaks to me. But I am about to turn the tables. I was surfing the Internet the other day, looking for something cool to do with my kid during Christmas and I found out about this really good looking hotel in Florence named Il Salviatino. I saw they are launching a special Festive Season package inspired by… ‘The Great Gatsby’!

When I first read it I couldn’t believe it! That one is L’s favorite book! She has read it more than twice and she told me few months ago how much she would love to have the chance to be a part of that story. So, as you can guess, this is going to be my gift to her. I will take her to Florence without telling her anything and then I will surprise her. We will dance to the music of the last film adaptation of the book, dressed up in the 20′s style, imagining that Jay Gatsby is our host and that he is dancing with Daisy near to us in such a beautiful environment.

Hopefully this will not only be the best Christmas of our lives, but I will also have the opportunity to make my daughter happy and be her friend again. So I want to thank Il Salviatino’s team from the bottom of my heart for having such a wonderful idea.

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to everyone!

Il Salviatino celebrates the festive season in a Gatsby style

“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!
