On the two upper floors of one of the most beautiful palaces in the Oltrarno. Opened in 2009 and furnished with great taste. The lovely gallery which opens onto the magnificent loggia (with comfortable cane chairs) is a very special feature. The seven airy rooms on this floor have frescoed ceilings and old painted floors, and the five on the top floor (reached by stairs) are a little simpler but have even better views towards Palazzo Pitti. All the bathrooms are new and particularly spacious, with pretty tiles from Vietri. The breakfast room at the back looks across the roofs towards Palazzo Pitti. The three rooms on the first floor (two of them very spacious with huge windows overlooking the piazza, with 18th-century frescoed ceilings and old-fashioned furnishings) are run as a bed and breakfast by the same excellent management (www.residenzasspirito.com).
Number of rooms: 12
