Location

The strategic location of Hotel Firenze allows guests to easily reach all the city's attractions.

Just a few steps away is the beautiful Cathedral of Como and the charming square, one of the last Gothic cathedrals built in Italy. Construction began in the late 14th century and was completed in 1770 with the rococo-style dome designed by architect Filippo Juvarra.

Nearby is the Palazzo del Broletto - the seat of power during the Middle Ages, which features a facade and a civic tower made of precious Lombard marble.

In front of the hotel (a 5-minute walk away) is the picturesque Lake Como and the main ticket office for boats, where guests can purchase daily tickets and book excursion packages offered by the Navigation of Lake Como. Visit the website www.navigazionelaghi.it to check fares and availability.

If guests prefer to arrange a tailor-made boat trip, our team will be available to suggest and book private boat excursion packages.

Also near Piazza del Duomo is Piazza Verdi, which contains a true mix of different historical periods. Here you'll find the remains of medieval walls and the former Casa del Fascio, designed by the renowned Rationalist architect Giuseppe Terragni.

Symbol of culture and art of the city, the Teatro Sociale hosts various national events throughout the year. Visit their website to find out about offers reserved for our guests.

In the southwestern area of the city center, you'll find the Basilica of Sant'Abbondio, an 11th-century Romanesque masterpiece and, according to many, one of the most beautiful churches in Como.

The basilica was built on the remains of a Benedictine monastery, and here guests can admire important 13th-century frescoes, a significant part of Italy's artistic heritage.

An important stop for the city's civic history is the Olginati Palace, home to the Giuseppe Garibaldi Historical Museum, where visitors can find important documents related to the process of Italian unification.

During your exploration of the surroundings, a stroll along Lungo Lario Marconi is a must: there you can find and visit the Voltiano Temple, a neoclassical building constructed in 1928, housing relics related to the life and works of Como's renowned resident, Alessandro Volta.

Como is also famous for its many villas of strong aesthetic and architectural interest. Among the most prestigious and renowned are Villa Olmo, Villa Carlotta, Villa Gallia, and Villa Parravicino.

The Silk Museum is located outside the historic city center but is easily accessible by taxi or bus.
