Set on the banks of the Arno River, the historic Principe Hotel is a mere 15 minute stroll to the city’s landmark attractions. The Bronzi family, hoteliers since 1890, bought the villa in 1950 from the Countess Galletti di Sant'Ippolito and transformed it into an elegant 20 room boutique category hotel run in the family style. The villa maintains its period charm by retaining its original floors, ceiling, and grand staircase to the 2nd floor, while incorporating a modern elevator and new private bathrooms. Most rooms have a private terrace for charming views of the Arno River or the villas own gardens. Modern Florence with old world grace!
