Welcome in the Heart of Florence

The renovated boutique location “The Artists’ Palace Florence” is located in the Palazzo San Giovannino, once owned by the nobil Martelli Family. It is right in San Lorenzo square, in the heart of Renaissance: in front of the Palace there is the first church built in the renaissance: the church dedicated to Saint Lawrence, 50 meters far from us you can visit the Medici Chapels, 100 meters further you can visit the “Duomo” and only 500 meters away from the Central Station (then the Aeroport, through the tramvia).

What makes this Palace so special? What we offer to our clients is a stay made of emotions, our guests will be dipped in ART and History, surrounded by the perfect encounter between a modern design and the preciousness of the details of the past.

The gems of the Palace are our library, an ancient church entirely frescoed for your events, meetings and concerts, and our balcony overlooking the stunning dome of the Florentine cathedral.
Last but not least, our hidden treasure, the scientific heart of the Palace: the MOX, Museum of the Ximenian observatory, where still nowadays we can look at the sky like they used to do 250 years ago.

The Artists’ Palace,
Creativity in hospitality
