A charming Relais in a XIIIth century palace just in the centre of Florence, a few steps away from the Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi and the Duomo. Located on the fourth floor with elevator, Relais Cavalcanti provides to its guests an unforgettable panoramic view of the very heart of Florence. In medieval times the palace was a tower belonging to the Cavalcanti’s family, whose famous poet Guido was a close friend of Dante Alighieri and here in 1583 was founded the old Accademia della Crusca that gave birth to the first vocabulary of the italian language Our rooms, all different, are spaciuos, romantic and luminous. They have been done in pastel tonels and furnished with sophisticated hand-decorated pieces in 18th century venetian style. Each bedroom, with ample ensuite bathroom featured white/green/grey marble, is equipped with double windows, air conditioning, satellite TV, mini-bar, telephone, internet plug. Daily cleaning and daily new towels are included in room rate too. The difference among Double Superior Room and Double Standard Room is only the view. Our Superior Room windows are facing the tower of Palazzo Vecchio, Orsanmichele Church and a characteristic florentine old market, located in the famous 16th century Loggia del Mercato Nuovo. Others Superior Room windows are facing a medieval area of Florence next to the Palazzo di Parte Guelfa. Double Standard room has a view on a street. Our guests also have at their disposal a cozy sitting-room, typical of a private home and an ample luminous dining-room where they can read one of our books about Florence and Tuscany.
