Pitti Palace al Ponte Vecchio - The Medieval Tower

Location, History, and Style

The Pitti Palace al Ponte Vecchio offers 86 smoke-free guest rooms in the heart of Palazzo Vecchio. This was once a medieval tower. Today, the hotel has an onsite bar, restaurant, and offers guests bicycle rentals. For business travelers, there is a business lounge with fax service and photocopy machine. WiFi here is free, and pets stay for free too. The Concierge is pleasant, knowledgeable, and helpful with currency and ticket services. 

The Palazzo Vecchio 

Palazzo Vecchio translates as the "old palace" and is the city center for Florence. The area is beyond rich in historical features and offers guests a remarkable taste of the culture and history of Florence and Italy. Many guests find that it is much easier to walk. The city is compact enough that walking is the perfect form of transportation. Most everything that you want to see is within a ten minute stroll. The minibus system is also easy to use. Tip: To enjoy the Plazza's start in the early afternoon when it is less crowded.

A Rich Bucket List

There is a lot to take in just within the historical district. Expect to find hundreds of restaurants around the Pitti Palace.  Just over the Fiume Arno sit even more restaurants and shops. If you love fine dining try Trattoria Celestino's. For lunches to go, try Pane e Olio di Buchicchio deli in the Piazza Santa Felicita. For shopping, head over to Madova Gloves, La Pelle, and Gianfranco Luzzetti. Along the way, you will encounter historical buildings, museums, and culture venues.

Comfortable Place to Relax 

The rooms are clean and comfortable. Expect slightly larger rooms than many hotels with four-star rating. The rooms feature air conditioning and climate control, blackout curtains, and by request, hypo-allergenic bedding. In-room amenities include a minibar, hair dryer, bidet, desk, and safe. For entertainment, guests enjoy satellite TV and free WiFi. Overall, a solid four-star hotel in an excellent location.

The Bottom Line

Pitti Palace al Ponte Vecchio is a mid-range hotel offering guests more features than other nearby hotels. The Hotel degli Orafi by comparison does not allow pets, offer child care, or a restaurant on site. For the price, there is a lot of value for guests who stay at the Pitti Palace. Rooms in the rear of the hotel offer a quieter stay and shelter from the street noise.

As close to the Ponte Vecchio as you can get, this hotel is in a modernised 13th-century tower, with two terraces on the sixth floor. You can soak in the splendid vista of the city and...
