Summer serate at Villa San Michele, A Belmond Hotel

Enjoy pizza by the pool, an evening dedicated to mixology, and an expert-led wine tasting in the panoramic gardens.

From Fiesole’s hilltop position, Florence sits like a masterpiece to be admired, best viewed from Belmond Villa San Michele where you can wine and dine by the glistening pool at their newly opened poolside pizzeria, or take part in evenings dedicated to mixology and a wine tasting in the company of an expert. Located just a short distance from Florence, take a seat in the Italian garden for an aperitivo to be remembered and finish off the summer in style.
