Suggestive medieval tower-house dating back to 11th century, originally from the wealthy Galigai family, located in the very heart of Florence, also cited in Dante's Paradise.
The tower is inside the “cerchia antica” (ancient circle), the oldest walls of Florence built in 1078, next to Piazza della Signoria, two steps away from Uffizi, Duomo and Ponte Vecchio, 15 minutes by walk from SMN railway station.

It’s the perfect place to relax after enjoying the city! Walking distance to many sites! Hot shower was the best we’ve had, comfortable bed and sofa for lounging. Washer and dryer were nice too. Beautiful space with plenty of room and cool views!

This location was absolutely superb. We didn’t know much about Florence and could only stay for 1.5 days, so we totally lucked out having such a great location. There was a supermarket, gelateria, fruit stand, tour agency, and taproom all within line of sight, and of course many…

An amazing location and a beautiful apartment! They helped us with our bags up and down (stairs are pretty steep), they answered our questions very quickly, and their food and drink suggestions were all fantastic! Would definitely recommend.
