Virgilio Apartment - Florence

3 Double bedrooms - Terrace

Palazzo Tornabuoni dates back to the 14th century, at a time when Florence was beginning to expand beyond its original Roman centre. Compared to the Via delle Belle Donne, Via Tornabuoni and Piazza Antinori were then parallel side streets leading out towards the city's exits. It was only later, towards the mid 15th century, that Via Tornabuoni and Piazza Antinori were expanded and became the place where rich Florentines bought and refurbished large buildings to turn them into stately homes. Throughout the centuries, Palazzo Tornabuoni was extensively remodelled, acquiring its present day aspect around the mid 18th century.


The apartment has an enormous sitting room overlooking the façade of the church of San Gaetano. At night the church is beautifully floodlit, and the white marble Medici crest, visible directly opposite the sitting room, stands out creating a very dramatic effect.

Located on the third floor of Palazzo Tornabuoni on the elegant Piazza Antinori facing the church of San Gaetano, Virgilio is a very charming apartment for 6 people.

A large hallway opens into the dining room, with a dining table and decorative prints; an open brick archway leads one on into the sitting room, a wonderful explosion of patterns in shades of green and rust. Above the three - seater sofa a small alcove resembling a window looks out onto an imaginary Tuscan landscape, painted in trompe l'oeil. Another sofa, four armchairs and some side tables complete the furniture.

The room opens onto a terrace with table and chairs. The master-bedroom has a king-size double bed, period furniture and a large walk-in wardrobe; adjacent to the bedroom is the bathroom with tub and shower. The two further bedrooms both have twin beds; each room has a spacious wardrobe and pretty painted furniture as well as exquisite furnishing fabrics.
