Luxury Travel Advisors have handpicked the best art galleries and museums from around the world.
The artistic tradition is deeply rooted in Italy. Even in the Neolithic Age, the inhabitants of Italy produced artistic ornaments and artefacts. The art in Italy was properly strengthened and refined during Roman times. Many influences from different European regions and popular artists have enriched the country and left Italy many still significant artistic treasures. While many regions of Italy have developed independently after the fall of the Roman Empire, with the Italian Renaissance the next heyday of the art scene has been reached. Michelangelo, Raphael and Leonardo da Vinci influenced the Renaissance, like Bernini and Borromini the baroque Italy. For lovers of art, Italy is a paradise with an invaluable wealth of works and places.

HAND-PICKED LUXURY HOTELS:
Villa Cora, Florence
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.
