Canto del Giglio Rosso

B&B Florence

Close your eyes for a moment and imagine the Florence of the Middle Ages with its many lofty towers built to protect the town’s nobility and flaunt their wealth. Giglio Rosso deliberately mimics this unique, vertical dynamic. Housed in what remains of a fourteenth century tower, the apartment offers guests breathtaking views over the town. On three sides, the apartment overlooks picturesque terracotta roofs and the splendid Palazzo Vecchio, one of the town’s architectural symbols. The original dimensions and vertical design of this apartment includes a steep and narrow medieval staircase that culminates in a breathtaking view of the city. On this floor there is a large bedroom with a four-poster bed, exposed beams and floor-to-ceiling windows that guarantee guests a unique experience. On the floor below there is a highly versatile room with a sofa-bed, an open closet, a double chest of drawers and a large bathroom with an anteroom.

Some nuggests of history...

Canto del Giglio Rosso refers to the corner of Via degli Speziali e Via dei Calzaiuoli, but its etymology is less clear. The lily (giglio) is the symbol of Florence and it was once displayed here in three different places: on an apothecary’s sign, on the front of a local hostelry and on the nearby church, the Chiesa di Santa Maria Nipotecosa. Naturally, each of these lilies had a very different meaning.
