Whilst on a cultural holiday in Tuscany or luxury holidays in Florence, this building is a true pearl of Renaissance architecture.

Palazzo Tornabuoni is one of the most beautiful Tuscany luxury locations in the historic center of Florence and following the restoration (that took around four years to complete) it was transformed into a perfect location for luxury holidays in Tuscany.

History and fine art have been molded into one of the finest cultural holiday locations in Florence!

Palazzo Tornabuoni
Located in one of the most aristocratic roads of the centre of Florence, in the heart of the “fashion square”, this historical building dating back to the 15th century was once the Pope’s residence and was also the venue of the first recorded performance of opera in the world.

Meticulous restoration work that lasted 4 years brought Palazzo Tornabuoni back to its former glory. The many and charming decorative features such as the elaborate stuccos, the frescos and the statues tell the story of 5 centuries of history. Modern comforts and services have been added to make 38 elegant and modern residences.

Some of the most interesting artistic features in Palazzo Tornabuoni are the extraordinary set of baroque frescos by Agostino Ciampelli (1578 – 1640) showing biblical figures Ester and Assuero, and the marble statue of Diana the Hunter by Gherardo Silvani (1579 – 1675) that can be found at the foot of an impressive “pietra serena” (local stone) staircase.

The internationally renowned interior designer, Michele Bonan, was given the task of blending contemporary style with timeless elegance. The result is a perfect harmony of frescos, marble floors and stone fireplaces with modern made-to-measure furniture, warm, modern fabrics and the latest technology.
