Editor's Pick: Grand Hotel Minerva - Florence, Italy
Ah, Florence -- the most beautiful city in the world, in my opinion, and a wonderful place to elope to. When I visited in 2015, I came across this lovely boutique hotel in Firenze and immediately thought it would make an ideal spot for a Florentine honeymoon. Situated in the Piazza Santa Maria Novella -- one of the city's finest and most famous squares -- the Grand Hotel Minerva is within walking distance of many of Florence's must-see attractions, including the Gallery Academy (home of Michelangelo's "David"), the Uffizi Gallery, Palazzo Pitti, the Opera Del Duomo Museum, Santa Croce, and, just across the plaza, Santa Maria Novello. And don't let the "boutique" designation fool you -- this is a spacious, chic hotel in one of the most glorious locations on earth.
