Gruppo UNA is expanding its offer with the addition of a new jewel in Italian hospitality for the UNA Esperienze portfolio, which includes top-of-the-range facilities: Leone Blu Suites | UNA Esperienze, propose a sophisticated selection of 9 spacious suites with their own unique personality in Palazzo Ricasoli, in the heart of Florence, just a few steps from Piazza della Signoria and the Ponte Vecchio.

UNA Esperienze: a collection even reacher.

The expansion of the UNA Esperienze collection reflects Gruppo UNA's desire to offer its guests an even more complete and higher-profile selection. The new addition neatly sums up the UNA Esperienze brand promise: unique accommodation in dream destinations where comfort, art and culture join forces to make guests feel at home, in an authentically made in Italy setting. “We are very proud to welcome Leone Blu Suites | UNA Esperienze," said Fabrizio Gaggio, Gruppo UNA General Director, "from 1st  April it will be the new jewel in the crown of the UNA Esperienze collection, specifically aimed at select guests who are looking for travel solutions that offer them the chance to live the Italian lifestyle and get moved by it. The grandeur of the old 15th-century building and its rich history reflect that combination of local authenticity and excellent service that is a distinguishing feature of what our brand offers".

Leone Blu Suites | UNA Esperienze, a unique personality.

From the moment of the delivery of the keys, Leone Blu Suites by UNA Esperienze invite you to live a totally exclusive travel experience; each suite is inspired by one of the famous members of the Ricasoli Barons' family and has a unique personality, from the layout of the room to the décor. Each room is embellished by his precious original details, in which the historical authenticity of the Florentine noble tradition, as can be seen in the grey sandstone artefacts, in the family mementoes and in the paintings of the 17th century Florentine school, is combined with contemporary artistic elements, like the conceptual art of Sol Lewitt and the bold design of some of the furnishings. Whenever guests visit the city they can have a totally new experience each time, simply by changing suite, but always with the warm Italian hospitality.

Something that is quite hard to find in Florence's old city centre is the very thing that all the rooms have in common is brightness. It fills the 1,200 square metre spaces, helped partly by its wonderful location overlooking the Arno on one side and Piazza Goldoni on the other, one of the fortunate few along the river. Besides the suites, the hosts two airy halls with frescoed ceilings, the Salone degli Specchi and the Salone Bettino, the perfect settings for private or corporate events, like gala dinners vernissage, business meetings and celebrations.
