Loving ideas this February 14

Thu 27 Jan 2022 10:22 AM

Florence is unbeatably one of the most romantic cities and Festa degli Innamorati is widely celebrated around town. In addition to stocking up on Baci chocolates, check out some great ways to celebrate with your beloved.




Splurge on a staycation



Take a staycation at Hotel Brunelleschi (piazza Sant’Elisabetta 3) to celebrate the whole weekend. The four-star hotel offers an exclusive Valentine’s Day promotion, which includes dinner by two Michelin-star chef Rocco De Santis. Expect candles and exquisite seafood dishes for this unforgettable experience.




Stay understated with heart-shaped pizza



Keep the evening low-key by picking up a heart-shaped pizza from Gusta Pizza (via Maggio 46R) paired with a bottle of your favorite vino! Find a secluded spot along the Arno or trek up to piazzale Michelangelo and enjoy your pizza with a view!




Treat yourself to some self-love



If you’re single on this day for lovers, practice some self-love and treat yourself to a luxurious cocoa wrap and full body massage at Relax Firenze (via degli Strozzi 2). They also offer specialized treatments for two, allowing you and your loved one to carve out uninterrupted time together while being pampered simultaneously. 




Have decadent desserts delivered



Staying in? Have decadent desserts delivered by Pasticceria Silvano e Valentino (via Niccolò Paganini 2). Indulge in the taste of tradition and quality from this pastry shop with signature “frosted hearts” shortbread cookies or an entire cake. The editors of The Florentine also love Gervi’s homemade cakes, from carrot to cheesecake and more, with free delivery in central Florence (via Pietro Colletta 26R). 




Say it with flowers in Florence



Who doesn’t love the scent of fresh flowers? Jardin Divers (via Cimabue 57R) has a wide selection of curated seasonal bouquets that are created, packed and shipped in Florence and surrounding areas. Place your order by February 10 for guaranteed delivery by Valentine’s Day and use the code CELEBRATELOVE2022 for five euro off.
