Four Seasons Firenze



Dear _____,

Before we begin, please let us thank you in advance for reading this far. You see, we live in California which is very far away from Florence. This means that we cannot make a business appointment with you directly, so we must use this technology to communicate with you at the Four Seasons in Florence. 

California has so much in common with Italy, Californians are one of your largest and most repetitive visitors bases. Because we share a similar terrain, size, and climate, like you we grow fantastic fruits and vegetables, we are adamant about healthy foods, and we savor a wonderful meal with equally wonderful wines.

We have some pretty large industry segments here, such as Silicon Valley and Hollywood. And this means that we have plenty of wealth here. Given all of this, we travel often, we do global business, and we have high standards. Italy is a very comfortable destination for Californians, a natural place to go. So we do, often.

Thank you for getting this far, and if you haven't already done so, please begin by pressing PLAY on the video above.

How to connect the FOUR SEASONS FIRENZE

We know why your guests visit your hotel: it is your Culture of Service. They will return time and time again because their demands are high, and their comfort is paramount. No other hotel offers your level of service as a culture.

"Florence is like NO OTHER CITY. When people come to Florence for the first time, they can be intimidated by centuries of history, art, and culture all in one little area."

So often, guests are led to the Uffizi for an afternoon. But what if they aren't really a 'museum person?' They will leave the city with no more than a distant memory. Our book asks them - up front - the kinds of things that will interest them, then it points them directly to it. So even if they had limited time, they got to see a Florence that was interesting for them.

When your guests come for Business reasons, they often have only a tiny bit of time to explore the city.


As a family of globe-trotting explorers, we find every excuse to hop on a plane and jet off to yet another unknown land - at least unknown to us. We understood early that we were not interested in traveling with the herds, the masses, the packs, the mobs, the crowds. 

We enjoy the prestige of individual attention, of a quiet atmosphere where we can recharge our minds and souls. We understand the value of a fine meal and a soothing glass of fine wine. 

We found a way to contribute to

your Service Culture

Meet Patty Civalleri. Patty is our multi-award-winning best-selling Author. She has been writing books about her favorite country, Italy. As a historian, Patty has visited hundreds of cities in the world and has read hundreds of travel books. But most of them were written for the mass tourism trade: where to eat & sleep & lounge. Never satisfied, Patty wrote a set of books for the Quality-driven, information-hungry, time-constrained traveler.

The elegance of her products and vision is surpassed by no other travel book on the market.

Patty knows that your guests have come to you under a wide variety of circumstances: some for business, some for holiday, some for education, and some are merely passing through. But no matter the reason, Patty has thought it through.

About the Author

"As a historian, I have sifted through ancient history to find its fun and exciting points. As an Author, I have found the way to blend those points with the natural mood of a vacation traveler: relaxed intelligent discovery. I have found a way to make the history of a city compelling, not boring.

With Italy, I have created a line of books that will take travelers to the heart of a city - the things that truly make a city important. In the case of Florence, it is the Renaissance. Visitors laugh, cry, and experience that 'AHA' feeling throughout their entire visit. And they will have fun as they walk the streets feeling as though they are the first person to ever discover the "Michelangelos" of Italy's past.

Most travel guidebooks are about discovering where to eat, drink, and sleep during a trip. Instead of merely eating and drinking their way through Italy, my readers are coming home with a strong sense of accomplishment - in addition to a full belly.

Let me introduce you to a new way to see travel and discovery during your next trip to Italy, and to return home from an important destination with something more lasting than a hangover.

My name is Patty Civalleri, and I wrote these books to connect on a deeper level with your hotel guests."

What People Are Saying About This Book

“This is a game changer for travellers...”

“With no direct competition in the travel guidebook arena, this book is a game-changer for travellers that want to know more than simply where to eat or drink. I can say that Patty always has a smile on her face; she put this smile on every page of the book."

Dr. Zahi Hawass
~ Egyptian Minister of Antiquities (retired), Archaeologist, National Geographic Explorer in Residence, Author

The dazzling photos and clear, concise text make for a great read!"

"Ms. Civalleri takes the reader on a virtual walk through the ancient walled city, pointing out people and places, sharing the tales and trivia of the place that defined the Renaissance. The dazzling photos and clear, concise text make for a great read!"

Dr. Jane Close-Conoley
~ President California State University in Long Beach, Professor of Psychology

It should be in the hands of everyone who visits Florence, and wants to see and understand its magic."

"This book is extremely useful for students as well as holiday adventurers. It should be in the hands of everyone who visits Florence, and wants to see and understand its magic. My wife and I have already been to Florence, but now are looking forward to returning – this time with your book in our hands."

~ Archaeologist, Professor at UCLA University of Southern California in Los Angeles

Why Not Another Book? Why Our Book?

Other Travel Books

As you already know, the standard travel industry books are written by many writers, using "templates." They are directed at the mass public traveler. They focus on the same top places to visit, the same top restaurants, the same top hotels with the same bargain prices. And mobs of people flock all together.

But we both know that your guests are not like the typical traveler. They don't want the same things, they don't want to eat at the same touristy restaurants, and they don't want to huddle with masses of strangers while they attempt to enjoy your city. They will not understand the depth of your city.

Our Travel Books

Our books were all written by Patty Civalleri. Patty is a historian who specializes in archaeology. She is a world class photographer and writer, and she visited your city with no pre-conceived notions as to how the book should be written. She simply waited for Florence to beckon until she fell in love with your beautiful city. It is with this personal love and historical expertise that she wrote her very visual award-winning books. And your guests will immediately know the difference in quality! They will hear her voice as she explains the real meaning of the Florentine Renaissance that changed the world - forever.
