The apartment, meticulously maintained with every detail restored to perfection, faces the famous Cappelle Medicee, which dates back to 16th and 17th centuries. When you step outside the front door you find yourself strolling in the city’s oldest neighborhood, and Santa Maria Novella Rail Station is only 5 minutes away on foot. The location is within walking distance to shopping, world famous museums and galleries and the city’s finest outdoor monuments, beside plenty of restaurants and cafés with ample sidewalk seating perfect for soaking up the atmosphere. The history and integrity of this historic home remains intact, enhanced by modern amenities.

The living room with comfortable sofas and beautiful antiques boasts an exquisite original 18th century frescoed soaring ceiling, depicting an allegory of music. Two bright windows facing the Cappelle Medicee let the natural light flood into the house. The completely frescoed library/tea room, perfect as a place to relax, unwind and enjoy one of the many art books available on the well-stocked bookshelves of the house.

A traditional dining room hosts the most important frescoed ceiling of the Palazzo and it is marked with classic style. The warm wood antiques, several oil paintings of various periods and the Murano hand blown glass chandelier create an elegant space for formal dining. Two large windows let in plenty of natural light.

The special characteristic of this house resides mostly in the details—from the delightful soaring frescoed ceilings and elaborate crown moldings, to the dark wood furnishings that add richness throughout the apartment. A fully equipped modern eat-in kitchen and the laundry room complete this floor.

Well-appointed with modern amenities and elegant décor, Ippolita is the destination of choice for guests who want to be within walking distance from the very best of Florence.
