The Hermitage – Hotel Burchianti, Florence Italy

A spooky Hermitage for you today, perfect for Halloween!

Welcome to Hotel Burchianti in Florence Italy, reported to be one of the most haunted hotels in the world. Originally established in 1936, this hotel can be found on the first floor of a historical building in Florence. Like stepping back in time, each room has an air of extravagance because of the antique furnishings, rich tapestries and the stunning hand painted frescoes on the ceilings which date back to the XVII century.

But back to the ghosts. Request the Fresco room if you wish to experience a paranormal stay. Reports state that Italian Fascist leader Benito Mussolini once stayed in this room and guests have reportedly seen an apparition of a man, felt cold breath on their face or the eerie sensation of being watched. But events are not isolated to this room, the rest of the hotel also has a ghost of a child who skips down the corridors, a maid that never clocks off and an old woman that knits in a chair. CREEPY!

At least when you are lying awake, shuddering at every squeak and creak you will have a beautiful ceiling to stare at. My guess is that you get to know that fresco pretty damn well by the end of your stay!
