Welcome to Florence...Il Ferruccio Bed & Breakfast
“Il Ferruccio” Bed & Breakfast is a small elegant villa in stone dating back to the early 1900's; situated in a refined residential area situated on the road which rises up to Piazzale Michelangelo.
Once across the San Niccolò Bridge, on one side you can admire the banks of the Arno, simply spellbinding with the colours of the sunset which reflect in the river, the Old Bridge with its jewellery shops, and the historical palaces of Renaissance Florence; while on the other side your view will be dominated by the green hill with the majestic Romanic church of San Miniato al Monte and the Belvedere Fort, two green oases which stand out and dominate the city from above.
With a romantic stroll along the banks of the River Arno you can reach the nearby historic centre in a few minutes:
the Cathedral, the Uffizi Gallery, the historical Piazza Santa Croce and Palazzo Pitti, can be found less than a quarter of an hour away by foot from the Ferruccio B&B; while on the eastern side of the district you can discover a web of characteristic little streets called “coste”, where you can feel the rustic atmosphere of ancient Florence, and which rise in a steep climb up the Boboli hill, on top of which lies the Belvedere Fort.
Travelling by car along the nearby Viale dei Colli, a panoramic road 8 km long, or climbing by foot the “Rampe del Poggi”, the famous monumental steps, you will arrive at Piazzale Michelangelo, an exceptional terrace overlooking the city, from where you can admire a spectacular view which embraces the heart of Florence from the Belvedere Fort to Santa Croce, passing along the river banks and the bridges of Florence in sequence; the Cathedral, Palazzo Vecchio, the Bargello Museum and the octagonal bell tower of the Badia Fiorentina, without forgetting the hills lying to the north with Fiesole and Settignano at their centre.
It lies in a strategic location for those wishing to visit Florence on foot and for those who want to reach the main cities of art in Tuscany by car or train (Pisa, Arezzo, Lucca, Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, etc.).
The Bed&Breakfast “Il Ferruccio”, an apartment which has recently been completely renovated, is luxurious and appealing; it is arranged on two floors with an area of 180 sq.m., with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, a triple hall for having a friendly chat, for relaxing with a good book offered by the guests' library or for a game of chess.
The large hall has a big bright window and French window leading onto a romantic and antique Italian garden with irises, hydrangeas, ivy, calla lilies, tall cypress trees and fragrant jasmine.
At the bottom of the garden you can catch a glimpse of a small grotto with a Cherub talisman, and an impressive, large, antique table in marble mosaic, pride of our Apuane mountains, where you can relax after visiting our beloved city.
During the summer months we offer the possibility of taking breakfast in the garden, an enchanting green oasis, before becoming engrossed in the liveliness of the city.
On the ground floor there is the living area, with a big hall, dining room, spacious corridor, equipped kitchen, laundry room and bathroom with wash-basin and shower.
A wide staircase in pietra serena (Firenzuola stone) leads to the upper floor, the sleeping area, with a lovely entrance, 3 bedrooms and 2 more bathrooms.
