A Roof With a View

The initiative, in its fourth run, is still a budding gem. “A roof with a view” offers the opportunity to admire the city’s skyline as, starting June 1st, 19 hotels will open their panoramic terraces to the public all day, offering tourists the possibility to taste appetizers or drinks while enjoying the sight of Florence at sunset, for example. A photographic contest revolving around the theme of Florentine views, will grant the winner a free overnight stay in one of the hotels participating.

This year, the event is also linked to the European Design Institute in the city, with the aim to promote Florence as a fashion brand: the students will create objects inspired by the image of the city under the supervision of Dutch designer Corné Gabriel. A number of the pieces will then be displayed in the halls of the hotels taking part in the project.
