“Historic venue complete with frescoes for private events ” - Reviewed by Deborah
DEBORAH PERFECT PICK “Like a living museum, you’ll dine beneath original frescoes surrounded by antiques just steps from Florence’s cultural and artistic highlights.”
Suitable for all types of intimate events and parties, the Palazzo Residence can transform into a unique cultural venue that provides total privacy. From business and private lunches or dinners to birthday parties and weddings to fashion shows and galas to exclusive parties and movie sets, this apartment is an artistic and historical gem.
Your cultural exploration of Florence springs to life upon entering this historic apartment where it is believed Pope Clement VIII (Ippolito Aldobrandini) would stay when he visited Florence during his papacy. From the frescoes complete with date markings by artists Vincenzo Meucci and Tommaso Gherardini in the dining room, entrance hall and Master Bedroom to the antique furniture peppered throughout, you get a real sense of classic Italian elegance from a bygone age.
Not only is this apartment a cultural gem unto itself, its location is unbeatable right in the heart of Florence’s historic centre, a breath away from restaurants, cafés, shops, bakeries, churches and museums. Just 5 minutes or less by foot to Florence’s breath-taking Duomo and right at the entrance to the Medici Chapels, you would be hard-pressed to find a more convenient and elegant setting for a Florentine sojourn.
The apartment belongs to a prominent Florentine family who have adorned the residence in antiques over the years and engaged in constant renovations to keep it up to date with modern comforts without losing the charm of the original design. For your enjoyment, they have provided books that spotlight the frescoes you will see in the residence.
This historic apartment is a real treat for both culture and comfort buffs.
