About the property

Palazzo Galletti, A Wonderful Holiday In A Charming Historic Palace

Located in Florence's historic heart at 12 via Sant'Egidio, the Palazzo Galletti B&B is a 10-minute walk to the Duomo and the church of Santa Croce. It is also close to the famous theaters, La Pergola and Verdi.

On entering the 1st floor reception area, from the ancient stairs, you are immediately enveloped by the atmosphere of antiquity with the 17th century altar serving as the reception desk. The young owners have gathered ethnic art from around the world and various pieces adorn the walls, making a surprising yet harmonious blend of classical and ethnic styles. Informal luxury is the keynote of this unusual boutique B&B.

Francesca and Samuele, the owners, who run this refined B&B, have paid meticulous attention to details, including uncovering hitherto unknown frescoes in two of the bedrooms. Guests can choose to sleep under the fresco of Cerere, Giove or Uranus. No expense has been spared in the specialist restoration work of this 19th century palazzo, bringing it to life so that the old atmosphere of Florence can be enjoyed by guests in the 21th century.

The eleven beautiful and spacious rooms consist of four suites and seven superior rooms, each with their own luxurious bathroom in Travertine marble. The rooms are named after the nine planets in the solar system which also were the names of ancient Roman gods: Mercury, Venus, Cerere (identified as the Earth), Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto. The latest two suites complete the ideal solar system: Elios, the Sun and Selene, the Moon.

The true history of this palace comes through in the magical hours of your mornings. The 1550 kitchen with its wide-low hooded sink and its volted ceilings, where breakfast is served, gives one the impression of experiencing the past. It is truly a treasure, we invite you to disagree!


Selene is the goddess of the full Moon and has been usually depicted riding a charriot. The snow-white faced maiden is the symbol for her purity. In this suite making a surprising yet harmonious blend of classical and ethnic styles, you will find all her soft silvery lightness even in the relaxing shades of blue that color the walls. The room includes a charming living room with a two person sofa bed and a wide bedroom with a king-size bed. The combining of antiques and ethnic, makes a surprising jet armonious blend of styles.

The suite provides air conditioning, satellite TV with big flat-screen, internet access on request, a mini bar and a personal safe. The luxurious bathroom in travertine marble has a big shower and a design bath tub.
