Florence, during the Easter period, blooms anew just like the lily on the City’s coat
of arms, thanks to the numerous events that are scheduled at this time of year.
The Hotel Regency, an elegant 5-Star hotel in the centre of Florence, is the ideal place to spend your Easter break whilst making the most of this special atmosphere.
The Hotel Regency
is inspired by the historical period of the same name, evoking its richness and
elegance through the tasteful decor of a private villa dating back to 1866 which
has been renovated to bring to life a luxurious, yet, at the same time, intimate,
style of hospitality. The Hotel is located in the historic city centre of Florence
to reach all the important sights on foot. The Hotel Regency is a few minutes’ walk from the Piazza del Duomo,
which, on Easter Sunday, hosts the traditional ceremony of the “Explosion of the Cart
” which recalls Florence’s support to the first Crusade victory against the Muslims.
The cart, well stocked with fireworks, is carried in a procession throughout
main streets of Florence until it arrives at the Cathedral where the fireworks
are exploded as a wish for prosperity for the coming year.
The Easter lunch will take place our restuarant Relais le Jardin with a special menu created by our Executive Chef Sandro Baldini.
