Do not miss this because the Chef is a absolute Genius and the most caring and professional Chef you'll ever meet. Prepare to be amazed by this dining experience. Eat lightly before going for dinner because the service doesn't seem to end. Courses will dazzle...More

I have heard there is a free shuttle between the hotel and the city of Florence. Is that true? If so, how often does it go back and forth?

Hi, There is definitely a free shuttle. Also one that goes to Sienna too I think? I'm not sure of the frequency, but if you email the concierge they respond really quickly. I would also highly recommend the Truffle... More

Description
La Torre’s menus are inspired by Tuscany’s bountiful seasonal ingredients. The maxim of Executive Chef Di Pirro is, ‘if you want quality then you must follow nature’. Spring brings crisp green beans, zucchini and fragrant herbs. Summer, the Tuscan ports reopen, sending over fresh lobster and prawns. Autumn offers rich flavours of chestnuts, mushrooms, wild boar, and the best porcini and truffles. Each morning Di Pirro takes pleasure in a stroll through the terraces of his own kitchen garden and selects the best sun-ripened produce.
In the summer months dining is al fresco, the rolling Chianti countryside unfolds beneath the terrace, with lines of vines and olive groves, fringed with forest. In winter La Torre’s dining is warm and stylish, with a vast period fireplace dominating the room, beneath the vaulted ceilings of the castello’s former stables.
