"Frescoed apartment bubbling with personality in the heart of Florence." - Reviewed by Deborah
DEBORAH PERFECT PICK “The Palazzo Residence is like a living museum, you’ll dine beneath original frescoes surrounded by antiques just steps from Florence’s cultural and artistic highlights.”
Your cultural exploration of Florence springs to life upon entering this historic apartment. It is believed Pope Clement VIII (Ippolito Aldobrandini) would stay in this building when he visited Florence during his papacy from 1536 to 1605. 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 at the Palazzo Residence .
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. You will also find books for your enjoyment that spotlight the frescoes you will see in the residence.
This historic apartment is a real treat for both culture and comfort buffs.
