Location, historic, elegance, light, frescoes, modern architectural touches and comfort. Those words describe this unique apartment in central Florence in the historic Palazzo Bardi. With three double bedrooms and three bathrooms, this spacious apartment is well-suited to three couples who are looking for a comfortable place to stay in the center of historic Florence.
Palazzo Bardi was built in 1420 by Brunelleschi. The most recent major restoration to this apartment within the building was completed in 2012. There are eight residents in total within the Palazzo. The courtyard of the palazzo is decorated with Andrea della Robbia majolicas, a crown of big columns typical of Brunelleschi’s style, antique marbles and Renaissance ironworks. An English speaking porter and a video security system ensure security and privacy.
