Arrive in Florence as an ordinary traveler yet depart with a lifetime's worth of treasured memories having enjoyed the city in its noble grandeur. Penthouse Medici's prestigious Renaissance address puts it on the highest floor of a 13th century palazzo with a picture perfect, postcard view looking out over Piazza Signoria, Florence's most beloved piazza with the towering presence of Palazzo Vecchio.

This exquisite and spacious apartment comes with a number of distinguishing services. On arrival, check in takes place at a 4-star hotel, 300 yards away, where the friendly English speaking staff assign a porter to carry your bags and lead you to the penthouse. Included in the price, guests are welcome to return to the hotel each morning to partake in their American-style buffet breakfast, served from 7 to 11 am, that includes imported US coffee, pancakes and pure Canadian maple syrup. Of course, Italian specialties and coffees are present; however, a good old cup of java really kick starts the day. The hotel's business center with PC, printer and fax may be used free of charge. Reservations for dinner? Simply ask the front desk as you make your way to and from breakfast.

Classic Florentine décor, high ceilings dating back to the days of the Medici and bright sun-filled rooms set the stage. During the renovation, guest comfort was of paramount importance resulting in floor to ceiling closets, polished wooden floors, a spacious bathroom supplied with toiletries and an exquisitely tiled open shower. Heating and air conditioning are included in the price along with Wi-Fi.

Both the bedroom and the large dining and living area overlook Florence's most celebrated square. Opening the large picture windows in either room brings the sights and sounds of Piazza Signoria to life. From your bedroom pillow, the rising tower of Palazzo Vecchio fills the view and its majestic chimes greet you each morning and bid a good night with an unmistakably Renaissance flair.

Piazza Signoria is the pulsing heart of Florence and just outside the door on the square are several cafes including Caffè Rivoire (known for its decadent chocolate desserts), a gelateria next door, several restaurants and pizzerie, the Gucci Museum and the Chanel boutique. When taking a seat in one of the neighboring cafes, look around the piazza and notice that your windows are by far the largest overlooking the square! Among the other fascinating sights to see:

  • The Uffizi art galleries, the gold shops of the Ponte Vecchio and Mercato Nuovo leather market are within 200 yards or less.

  • The Bargello sculpture museum housing the largest collection of Renaissance sculpture and several works by Michelangelo along with ceramic, tapestry and armor collections is 300 yards away.

  • Via Tornabuoni, lined with high fashion boutiques such as Ferragomo, Gucci, Bvlgari, Fendi and Louis Vuitton is 350 yards away.

  • The Duomo is in 400 yards or a 5 minute walk along Via del Calzaiuoli, one of the streets bordering the piazza that's lined with all types of shopping.

  • The 15th century Renaissance Palazzo Pitti with art galleries housing the Medici collection and the Italianate Boboli gardens are within 600 yards.

When it's time to say Arrivederci Firenze, a simple phone call beckons the porter back to haul your Florentine treasures to the hotel for a speedy check out. A stay at Penthouse Medici is the ultimate way to experience Florence!

A tourist tax collected by the town is paid separately on the first seven nights. Children under age 12 are exempt.
