A room with an incredible view...

Bed and breakfast is a newly opened, exclusive bed and breakfast for women only located at the top floor (no lift - 68 steps) of a historical palace in the center of Florence, Italy.

With a stunning view of Brunelleschi's Cupola of the Duomo, it overlooks a quiet inner garden and is only minutes away from the Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, Santa Croce, the Accademia, the main train station and air terminal.

Bed and breakfast has four double rooms all overlooking the garden, three with a view of the Duomo. There are two bathrooms, and two rooms have washing facilities as well.

The apartment has just been nicely renovated. We have put in parquet floors, and furnished the rooms with all wood beds, three with natural latex mattresses and one with a raised futon.

There is a kitchen/breakfast room where Paola will provide an expanded continental breakfast and attend to special food requirements.

Brunelleschi's Cupola:

Brunelleschi's Cupola is the symbol of Florence and the whole of Tuscany. It is considered as revolutionary Renaissance architecture.

The cupola is seen in our picture above. The construction of the cupola was one of the most challenging efforts during the Renaissance period.

Florentines debated and competed for years to make the cupola but it was finally completed by Filippo Brunelleschi.

The Cathedral or Duomo:

The Cathedral or Duomo of Florence, on which Brunelleschi's Cupola sits, was the end result of years of work that spanned six centuries of history.

The general design of the Cathedral was designed and created by Arnolfo di Cambio at the end of the 13th century. The cupola was designed, as mentioned, by Filippo Brunelleschi.

The Lantern:

Two years after the great cupola, or the "Cupolone" as the Florentines call it, was finished in 1434, the lantern was placed in position (taking it from 91 to 114½ meters in total height).

The lantern had its decorations finished in 1446, when the great architect was on his deathbed. The finishing touches included the application of the decorations in the lantern (1461) and the positioning of the great copper sphere on the top (1474).

Cast in Verrocchio's workshop and raised with the aid of a machine that was built with the help of Leonardo da Vinci, the ball fell off after being struck by lightning on July 17th, 1600, and was replaced two years later by a larger one. A marble plaque commemorating the event is still visible on the paving in the square behind the Cathedral.
