Terrazza de’ Medici is situated in the historical centre of Florence, just a stone’s throw from the Ponte Vecchio and the main sights of the city. Elegantly furnished with a rich combination of antique furniture and modern day comforts, the apartment is found on the first floor of a beautiful 14th century building which looks out onto Borgo San Jacopo, a characteristic street which leads to the famous Ponte Vecchio and its boutiques, bars and restaurants. The apartment is 70 sqm and is made up of the entrance, lounge, dining room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.

In addition, there is a wonderful terrace with aedicula, where guests can enjoy a panoramic view over 5 avenues and relax with a cool drink, or have dinner under the moonlit sky. The triangular terrace is closed to one side by a 14th century loggia, known as the “bellosguardo”. It is in fact from here that Francesco I de’ Medici watched his beloved Bianca Cappello who lived in the building on via May which the Great Duke had built in 1566 by Buontalenti, whose beautiful fountain is underneath the aedicule. Indeed, the love story between Francesco I de’ Medici and the venetian Bianca Cappello was one of the most beautiful and passionate love stories from the Renaissance period, and this house bore witness to their story.
