Maggio Palace boasts many 18th century frescos and paintings and is in a prestigious historical building in the centre of Florence, very close to the Arno river.
Appartment on the first floor (with an elevator) of a marvellous historical building in Via Maggio, one of the finest in the whole city centre. The aristocratic building dates back to about 1470 and boasts a majestic courtyard, with a portico on three of its sides, decorated with statues.

One of the bedrooms with two beds is on a large loft overlooking a corridor.
Guests will find all necessary amenities, as well as beautiful antique furniture, precious textiles and pieces of art. The apartment has air conditioning in every room except the single bedroom (with a mobile unit in the master bedroom), a TV in each bedroom (except for in single bedroom), a satellite TV in the master bedroom and wifi.
The property is in the historical area called “Oltrarno”: the name translates to “on the other side of the Arno” and is on the south side of the river. Oltrarno holds the true essence of Florence: a quiet area with many green spaces, making it more relaxing than other parts of the city, making it more and more appreciated by tourists. The area is also famous for its artisans, its beautiful workshops, small shops and studios (especially antique and leather dealers): via Maggio is the heart of Florence’s antique trade. Over the centuries, Oltrarno became a stylish area where many aristocrats built their palaces and villas: the largest of these is definitely Palazzo Pitti, where the Gran Duca di Toscana lived. Palazzo Pitti now hosts many of the city’s most important museums and exhibitions. The area also features the Cappella Brancacci with magnificent frescoes by Masaccio, Masolino e Filippino Lippi, Piazzale Michelangelo with its breathtaking view of Florence, the picturesque church of San Miniato (one of the highest points of the city and the best example of Romanic art in Tuscany) and Ponte Vecchio with its many jewellers and goldsmiths. Palazzo Pitti is also home to the marvellous Boboli gardens, an open-air museum with sculptures dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries.
