The historical charm of the facility, accurately restored, is matched with contemporary comfort and the beauty of a refined design. After walking past the gate, the hectic city gives way to a peaceful place immersed in green and harmony. Today, a part of the monastery still hosts the Catholic University of Theology for Central Italy, the Archbishop’s Library, with its very ancient books, the Church of San Francesco di Sales, with its 18th C. works and the Nuns’ Convent. Just outside the Hotel, the streets of San Frediano are ready to attract you with an extraordinary range of restaurants, cocktail bars and the craftsmanship of artisans who have lived here for generations. A unique opportunity to visit the Florentine neighbourhood that mostly represents the authentic soul of the city.
