Leone Blu Suites | UNA Esperienze

Luxury suite hotel in Florence downtown

Firenze Toscana


Florence, with his authentic nature, is evolving history, tradition that lives, craftsmanship that becomes art: Leone Blu Suites | UNA Esperienze welcomes you with an exclusive collection of nine unique suites, born from the harmonious mixture of antique elements, like the wooden decorated roofs and the furniture from Brolio Castle, and contemporary details.

Sophistication and elegance are the key elements of the Ricasoli Palace, an historic house of the 15th century, a timeless place where Italian art merges with the finest works of the greatest craftsmen from Florence: blacksmiths, stonemasons and bronze artisans.

The palace incomparable brightness, pretty rare to find within the historic center, is given by its peculiar location between the Arno and some of the few squares in Florence facing the river. The light from the palace windows enriches the spacious halls and the precious suites.

Eleganza e storia d'Italia

Palazzo Ricasoli spreads elegance, magnificence and history. Since the Middle Ages the members of the Ricasoli family have been standing close to the most influential Italian personalities, building the Italian legacy along with the De’ Medici Family, Galileo Galilei and Camillo Cavour.

Guests are sincerely invited to discover all the members of the Ricasoli family and their role through the elegant suites and halls of the palace to whom they are named after.  The household, Florence and Italian tradition are thus unquestionably tied, as the blue lion of the name is the symbol of Ricasoli coat of arms.
