Palazzo Portinari Salviati, an exclusive historical house in Florence within walking distance of the Duomo Cathedral, is an iconic palace that is part and parcel of Florentine history and tradition. The prestigious 15th century Renaissance home of Beatrice Portinari, Dante’s muse, and the first residence of Cosimo I de’ Medici, is back in all its splendour. Today the Palazzo houses elegant suites with frescoes and luxurious apartments overlooking the heart of the city with breathtaking views of the Florence dome by Brunelleschi. Among the precious frescoes, decorated ceilings, marble and original Tuscan terracotta floors, each of the 13 exclusive suites of Palazzo Portinari represents a genuine journey into the past, where princes, muses, poets and the most famous characters in the history of Florence lives were intertwined.
The extraordinary Corte degli Imperatori, a suggestive dining room with beautiful decorated ceilings by Alessandro Allori, is the setting for the restaurant Chic Nonna. For a more casual atmosphere the Court of Cosimo I welcomes the "Salotto Portinari" Bar & Bistrot, where ancient regional recipes are served in a modern way. In the old vaults of the building, the SPA Vita Nova lives like a temple of well-being which evokes centuries of history and preserves gemstones of Renaissance art. A superb destination full of suggestions and experiences, able to satisfy the needs of those who enjoy good living.
