"In no other place of residence in Florence have we lived in such intimate touch with the city's historical past, and in so many of its expressions." So said Pulitzer Prize winner R.W.B. Lewis, author of 'THE CITY OF FLORENCE, HISTORICAL VISTAS AND PERSONAL SIGHTINGS', in his description of the palazzo during his stay there.
The location is ideal for sightseeing, right on the Piazza Santa Croce and the magnificent Gothic church of the same name. The tombs of Michelangelo and Galileo and other famous Florentines are housed there. A short walk will take you to some very small but very interesting museums, such as the Horne Museum, the museum of the story of science, dedicated to Galileo, and two ancient herbal shops, Erboristeria and Erboristeria della Antica Farmacia del Cinghiale (Herbalist at the Old Boar Pharmacy). You can purchase herbal soaps, potpourri and fragrances made from ancient recipes by monks and nuns throughout Tuscany. A few more steps and you are at the Piazza della Signoria and the world famous Uffizi. And that's just in one direction!
