About Us

Villa Cora is located inside a centuries-old park that overlooks the Boboli Gardens, on the hills just outside the historical center of Florence.

The villa is an aristocratic residence built at the end of the XIX century upon commission by Baron Oppenheim reflecting the architectural styles of that period, dominated by a strong eclectic decor that provides the villa with different, sometimes even bizarre, artistic styles. Villa Cora, inaugurated when Florence was the capital of the Kingdom of Italy, has become throughout the years one of the major

cultural and cosmopolitan symbols of Florence. Villa Cora earned its reputation by hosting international guests of great importance, such as Princess Eugenia, wife of Napoleon III, and the Russian composer Tchaikovsky, and being considered the most beautiful residence of the Tuscan capital.

Villa Cora became an exclusive grand hotel at the end of 1960 and reopened in late 2010 after a detailed three-year restoration. Starting from October 2016 the hotel is member of Leading Hotels of the World.

Best of the Best

Set within a rose-filled park just outside the city center, Villa Cora reifies 19th-century Firenze in all its grandiosity. Built by financier Baron Gustav Oppenheim, the handcrafted villa simply oozes opulence with its marbled statues, exquisite frescoes and rich fabrics in royal purple, power red and plenty of green. Each of the 44 rooms and suites is unique unto itself in size, shape and style. Lounge by Florence’s only outdoor heated pool, and linger in the subterranean spa with its hammam and tepidarium. Dining venues change with the seasons.

Hotel Tip

The Bellevue Roof Terrace is where you can enjoy a mesmerizing view of the city while tasting a glass of champagne in the lounge area during summer months.
