The perfect place to play the part of a Florentine aristocrat is here at this 16th-century palazzo, which despite its massive halls and sweeping staircase could almost feel like home. Tapestries, collected by the antiquarian great-grandfather of proprietor Alberto Giannotti, adorn the walls. A sumptuous breakfast room, complete with Renaissance wood-coffered ceilings and a dramatic Murano chandelier, add large measures of elegance. Suites include large sitting rooms and
bedrooms, all decorated with luxurious fabrics, chandeliers, and Renaissance-inspired furniture. The rooftop terrace, complete with bar, has citywide views. Though it's only a five-minute walk from the Ponte Vecchio, the street is surprisingly quiet.
