Responsible and Cultural tourism in Florence

Our commitment for 2030

Our hotel is home to the practical application of the orientation called Life Beyond Tourism®, an approach that pays attention to a kind of tourist made of travellers, attentive to the person and his needs which, far from confining itself to providing accommodation facilities, involves guests in initiatives aimed at discovering and knowing the area and city in which they chose to stay. For us it is very important to add value to this responsibility, which goes far beyond its commercial objectives.

Our attention is totally focused on a behaviour very respectful of nature, people and animals.

Our policy is based on environmental and social sustainability to the benefit of consumers. The choice of products for our guests, within our premises, is based on the quality of raw materials, strictly natural, and their manufacturing processes.

Minimal environmental impact is guaranteed by the choice of low-consumption lighting, a strict selection of farm-to-table products for the breakfast room and the restaurant - all of which being produced in the territory of Tuscany -, room fresheners provided by AquaFlor, an artisanal perfume manufactory, cleverly packaged with the use of natural and rare raw materials, and the choice of Idea Toscana for the bathroom products, which guarantee the origin of the valuable raw material exclusively from Tuscany.

The Centro Congresso al Duomo convention center, of which our structure is part, gave way to the Romualdo Del Bianco Foundation’s Center for Studies and Research in 1998 that, today, works towards developing the Millennium Goals.

The Hotel Pitti Palace al Ponte Vecchio, as a home for the practical application of the Life Beyond Tourism® orientation, invests part of its proceeds in favor of some of the Millennium Goals, listed below. By booking through our official website, you may also contribute towards achieving the Goals and, therefore, help the planet become a better place.
