A historical Residence in the heart of Florence, where guests are welcomed with every possible attention, making you feel at home and like protagonists in a fascinating scenario, rich in art, memory, and new inspirations. Today the property is neither a hotel nor a boutique residence but a historical home where the joy of taking in guests greets the guests’ desire to relive an authentic moment of history, not as spectators but as protagonists.



The rooms available offer something completely different…we start off with the hammam suite - This room is designed for those wanting time for themselves. Its wellness area with a chromotherapy system, double Jacuzzi, Turkish bath for two persons and two sun loungers offers maximum relaxation. The frescoed walls, the headboard inspired by the church of Santo Spirito, and the view of the river and the Ponte Vecchio fill the atmosphere with charm.  The Tower Suite - The views of via Tornabuoni and the inner courtyard add to the Tower Suite’s charm, which is equipped with fine parquet floors, bedroom with double bed or two single beds, Verona Red marble bathroom with bathtub. The Renaissance Suite - This spacious Suite with renaissance flair measures 50 square meters and overlooks Via de Tornabuoni and has views of the Arno River. The walls are decorated with warm shades of red and gold or green and turquoise, with strong reference to the colors used by Giotto in altarpieces. The Granduca suite - Located on the sixth floor of Palazzo Gianfigliazzi, the suite offers an exclusive private terrace overlooking via de Tornabuoni and three rooms from which to admire the river and Oltrarno, with its timeless appeal.  Then there is the panoramic suite - The charming terrace overlooking the Arno River and the Ponte Vecchio makes this a unique Suite, finely furnished with a four-poster bed and walls lined with elegant fabrics. The large windows and the use of the private terrace make it the ideal accommodation for a truly unique stay.


The property has a restaurant in the tower and you can take advantage of the many terraces here with some great Florentine views or why not spend some time enjoying a glass of wine in their panoramic wine bar.  A great bolthole in Florence. Reference 4445j.
