Overview

This incredible and beautiful palazzo is located on a green square in central Florence, in a lovely residential neighborhood where you will find a playground with walks and park benches under a canopy of trees, surrounded by residential palaces.

The Duomo is an easy five-minute walk, while Florence's historic Synagogue is just around the corner. A wonderful variety of shops, coffee bars, restaurants and bakeries can be found in the neighborhood, and there is a wonderful open-air market in nearby Piazza Sant'Ambrogio.
Enter the Palazzo from the street into a marble-floored reception hall that leads to a private walled garden. Take the stairs or the elevator to the second-floor apartments, originally the noble family quarters.
As soon as you cross the threshold, you feel as if you have stepped into the past. Furnishings are family antiques, and the walls are decorated with original paintings by artists represented in the Uffizi. Although the apartments are neither modern nor luxurious, they are very special and represent a rare and unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the authentic Florentine aristocratic style.
The charming architect owners speak some English and are eager to make their guests feel welcome. Francesca has lived in the palazzo all her life and now resides on the top floor in a spectacular apartment designed by her husband. She teaches history of architecture at the University of Florence and is a willing resource for anyone interested in Florentine architecture.
