Grand Hotel Villa Cora

Grand Hotel Villa Cora Firenze

Grand Hotel Villa Cora is situated in Florence, close to the Boboli Gardens and the Piazzale Michelangelo. The building dates back to the late 1860's when Baron Oppenheim commissioned the construction of the Villa in which he and his notoriously beautiful wife hosted glamorous high society events attended by the Florentine aristocracy and numerous dignitaries of the newly founded republic of Italy.

In later years the villa became the Florentine retreat of Lady Eugenia, ex Empress and widow of Napoleon III, before passing under the ownership of Egidio Cora, after whom the villa takes its present name. Grand Hotel Villa Cora has a total of 48 spacious bedrooms and suites all with panoramic views of Florence and the Tuscan countryside. The interiors are just what one might expect of a late 19th century neoclassical Tuscan residence; featuring authentic antique and superb reproduction furnishings, oriental rugs and original period artwork.

The hotel's main restaurant, the 'Taverna Machiavelli', serves a selection of exquisite dishes inspired by the great Florentine gastronomic tradition. The 'Veranda' poolside restaurant offers al fresco dining in the summer months. Grandiose banqueting salons and superbly appointed function rooms add to the appeal of the Grand Hotel Villa Cora as prestigious venue for weddings and top level meetings and events in Florence.
