Florence’s Palazzo Niccolini al Duomo: A Hidden Gem of Aristocratic Hospitality

The luxury of hospitality immersed in the Renaissance beauty of the city of Florence, in a place symbolic of history and art in the heart of the historical center of the Tuscan capital: a weekend of exclusivity in the ancient aristocratic residence of Palazzo Niccolini al Duomo.

A few days in Florence is enough to make any visitor fall in love – if not for the firsts time then for the hundredth. Art galleries, gardens, museums, churches, statues, and frescoes meet with shops and restaurants. It really is the quintessential Italian getaway. And, nestled in its heart the Palazzo Niccolini al Duomo – a location unbeknownst to all, refined, luxurious, and true to the city’s heart of art and history.

Experience a Unique Stay in Florence

This little gem with just a few rooms is located inside a building of noble origins dating back to the fourteenth century, a place pervaded everywhere by artistic suggestions, where the workshop of the great sculptor Donatello once stood and that today has been transformed into an exclusive hotel for the fortunate few who manage to book a stay.

Originally built by the Naldini family, a wealthy Florentine family of merchants and bankers, the property was then passed on to the aristocratic Niccolini family in 1879. Today the grand building is a refined charming hotel where guests can spend unique and unforgettable moments in a setting as magical as the city it inhabits.

Located just 30 meters from the marvelous Dome of Brunelleschi, in the center of the “shopping area” and just a short distance from the main Florentine monuments and museums, Palazzo Niccolini al Duomo offers impeccable hospitality highlighted by all of the most modern comforts while offering the exclusivity of an environment where history and art can be felt in every corner.

As soon as you cross the threshold, the historical atmosphere of the place pervades the senses: fine fabrics, elegant curtains, precious materials, and antique wooden furniture strike the eye right from the reception, giving the feeling of being inside a great museum yet in complete privacy and surrounded by total relaxation.
