During WWII, German troops mined and blew up all the surroundings of Ponte Vecchio, including Il Palazzo. The Torre dei Girolami, one of the highest towers remaining in Florence, adjacent to the Palazzo and belonging to the same estate, collapsed on it, destroying the upper floors. These floors were rebuilt immediately after the war using the debris of the tower.

For the lofty living room at the top floor the owner did a radical restoration of all the superstructures as partitions, false ceilings, & layers of paint to highlight the original structure made of bricks and pillars from the tower.  From the sofa you have views from Santo Stefano church through the blooming terrace and on the opposite side you can see the tower of Palazzo Vecchio.

Undoubtedly, this property is one of the most stylish and luxurious private residences in the historical centre of Florence. It has recently been restored to a very high level by one of Europe’s leading interior designers and a member of Florence’s aristocracy.  The total size of the 5 bedroom apartment is 270 sq meters (almost 3,000 sq feet). It is located within short walking distance of the main sights of the city: the Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery, and Piazza della Signoria.

Guests arrive at the apartment at street level by entering a gracious 17th century hall with its original columns and statues.  A beautiful vaulted staircase leads to the upper floors.  If preferred, access to 4th floor is also available by a newly installed mirror-lined elevator. A private garage with storage facilities is at guests’ disposal.
