The B&B in Florence
The B&B are inside two small gems hidden away on a quiet street right in the heart of the historical center of Florence, ideal location for those who decide to stay in this magnificent city to visit the Michelangelo's David, the Uffizi Gallery and Palazzo Pitti.
The entrance ushers in the guests to two different types of accommodation:
- the Grand Tour Suites offer very large rooms, suitable for up to three people, with doors and windows that open to a plant filled patio (ground floor, far from the street)
- the Relais Grand Tour offers master bedrooms (some with a view of the gardens), and also integrates the home of the owners, Cristina and Giuseppe, and their doggy Albert(first/second floor)
Authentic style and atmosphere
The ambience is that of an elegant Florentine house with original 18th century paving, the hand-crafted lamps diffusing a soft light, the carpets, the quiet elegance of the rooms furnished with antiques, the family paintings, the terracotta and the decorated ceilings.
Both the accommodations Relais Grand Tour and Grand Tour Suites Inn underwent a restoration that lasted many years, during which the owners personally committed themselves to salvage and maintain the many ancient traces that came to light while restoring the property: hence the rebirth of a small private theatre from the 18th century with its stage and place for the audience that the owners of the house open for friends and curious guests, the gold-leaf decorations of some of the room's ceilings, the colored pavements, and then traces of frescoes in some of the suites, a 16th century fountain in the patio...
All which narrate a long history, and you will enjoy the warm atmosphere of each room so charming and romantic.
The Grand Tour B&B is the ideal place for romantic and curious travellers, that are looking for elegant and old fashioned atmosphere in a Florentine house where find authentic and original things and where pass an unforgettable holiday.
Since the owners Cristina and Giuseppe live in the same place you choose for your vacation in Florence, it's easy to meet them daily and ask for tips about restaurants, museums, walking tours, wine tastings, places to visit. They know Florence so good, and they will be happy to make you live the city as a local.
They can suggest you the hidden art treasures, the most beautiful churches of Florence, the romantic walks among Ponte Vecchio and the old alleys.
