Luxury in the historic centre of Florence
Suite Penthouse is an elegantly furnished, modern attic with a lovely terrace and two bedrooms in the historic center of Florence. The location could not be better: in Via Maggio, the street of the major Antiques furnitures shops, just next to Palazzo Pitti, and on the other side of Via Tornabuoni, the "fashion street". It can accommodate up to 7 people.
The apartment is located on the fourth and last floor with lift of a famous building located half way along Via Maggio. The building offers the possibility to choose between different types of apartments in addition to the Suite Penthouse for 7 such as six smaller suites for 2-4 people each and therefore allows customers to combine apartments if families or larger groups wish to stay together in the same building.
The palazzo was completely renovated in 2010 but originally dates back to the sixteenth century. All the original materials have been preserved and harmoniously matched with contemporary equivalents during this restoration that converted this palazzo into different apartments. The rooms are designed to preserve the elegance of times past and, at the same time, provide all the modern necessities for present-day guests. It features coffered and vaulted ceilings, not to mention original frescoes whilst the furnishings inside the apartments are luxurious, light and bright, and very comfortable.
Via Maggio, when constructed in the 16th century, was a posh address as the great families of Florence built magnificent palaces near the seat of power at the time, the Pitti Palace. It is one of the few streets in Florence with so many historic buildings along it and it is also home to many luxury antique shops and art galleries which give the street a very stylish character. The road leads from Porta Romana to Via Tornabuoni, and when you step out of the building you immediately find yourself amidst the true spirit of Florence.
Renown as the location of artisants, goldsmiths and restorers, the area is decidedly less traveled than some of the more commercial and touristy avenues. The Oltrarno area (the part of the city centre that lays on the left side of the river Arno) is characterised by narrow streets with beautiful palazzi. This part of the town is well-known for the many authentic workshops belonging to Florentine artisans, not to mention the many local cafes, typical Tuscan restaurants, grocery stores, souvenir stores, and all this just a 5 - 10 minute walk to all the most important monuments in Florence.
The location is just a stones throw from the Pitti Palace and Santo Spirito and just a 5 - 10 minutes from the Duomo, Piazza Signoria, the Uffizi Gallery, the Bargello museum and the Science Museum in Piazza de´Giudici.
The area is full of character and history. In the nearby Santo Spirito you will find a daily market that sells a range of fresh goods as well as clothes and other items. There is a small supermarket close by too right infront of the Pitti Palace. A Cappuccino bar for breakfast is just some steps away. Via Maggio leads to the Arno river and Via Tornabuoni, the "fashion street" with it´s elegant designer shops.

Our Guests Reviews
This apartment was perfect for us from the beginning. We arrived earlier than expected and needed a place to wait with our luggage for the appointed time to meet the keyholder. Steps away from the apartment was a sidewalk cafe where we could have lunch and keep our luggage close by. The apartment is charming with it's large windows and also very nicely renovated. We found its proximity to the Duomo, grocery store, restaurants, Uffizi, Accademia, Arno etc. a great advantage.
The morning we left, there was a marathon and the center of Florence was closed to traffic. The owner called a taxi for us and escorted us to the meeting point. A wonderful experience, I would stay there again. Thank you Bettina!
