A Michelin-starred picnic with Four Seasons



The European summer has arrived, and there is nothing better than a refreshing picnic immersed in the greenery of a shaded park to enjoy the warm season. Guests of La Villa at Four Seasons Hotel Firenze can now experience a Michelin-starred picnic in the hotel’s historical park, Giardino della Gherardesca, for lunch or dinner, with five-star comforts and delicious food.

The hamper is prepared by the Hotel’s Chef Vito Mollica and features Italian specialties, including seasonal products selected from among the best local producers: a Tuscan spelt salad, Italian finger sandwiches, bresaola and of course, a variety of artisanal cheese, all paired with a bottle of Tuscan red wine produced in the nearby Chianti region.

The picnic can then be enjoyed in one of the four locations set in the green of the historic Giardino della Gherardesca, based on the guests’ preferences, from the refreshing shade of the trees to a memorable tête-à-tête facing the Cupola of the famous Duomo. Each area is equipped with Bluetooth so guests may listen to their favourite music.

  • Selection of finger sandwiches
