Florence, Italy

Today’s #travelbackthursday featured property, @brunelleschifi, is housed in Florence's tower of Pagliazza - a reconstructed 6th Century Byzantine tower that was originally part of the city walls. In the 12th Century it was also used as a women's prison, hence the name "Pagliazza" which stems from the beds of straw for the prisoners. These days, all @fivestaralliance guests receive a complimentary bottle of Prosecco, $50 food and beverage credit, welcome amenity, and VIP status. #tbt
