With the launch this week of Dan Brown’s next magnum opus, Inferno, the Ferragamo (as in Salvatore) family-owned Lungarno Collection of hotels has come up with an Inferno Package that lets you follow in the footsteps of our intrepid hero, Robert Langdon, as he searches the hidden passageways of Florence to learn the hidden secrets to Dante’s Divine Comedy.
The Uffizi Gallery, Palazzo Vecchio and the house of Dante are just three of the places on this three-hour special access tour you'll go to before the film crews arrive and take them over to shoot the next Robert Langdon AKA Tom Hanks movie.
But that ain’t all, folks. You’ll also get:
The Ferragamo family has already proven themselves to be fairly good hoteliers, what with their collection of luxury boutique hotels around Italy. Now, Salvatore Ferragamo's son, Massimo, is focusing on his Tuscan getaway, Castiglion del Bosco, a 4,500-acre estate.
The property is still under construction as Ferragamo is upgrading the land which includes, stabilizing the ruins of a 10th century church, building a spa and two restaurants, a golf course, a winery and a horse stud farm.
Oh and yes, this will be a hotel. By Spring 2010, Castiglion del Bosco will have 20 villas and 26 "hotel" suites. Currently, nine villas are finished and 16 hotel suites are open. Rates range from 600 to 3,000 a night.
If by some reason, you have this kind of money to burn in these scary economic times, we suggest going to CdB pronto. The estate will soon become a members-only place and the hotel suites and villas will only be open for members and their family and friends. The membership fee is something like 2million. So yeah. Um. Right.
