1865 | HISTORIC RESIDENCE

An exclusive new guesthouse, 1865, with 5 luxurious bedrooms, has just opened in a historic building in a residential part of central Florence. Precious design elements combined with period features create an atmosphere of great charm and elegance.

Each room is named after an author who was living in Florence when it was the capital of Italy from 1865 until 1871. Each one is individually designed and furnished, and has a luxurious travertine bathroom, LCD television, air conditioning, and wi-fi. The mattresses, bed linen, bathrobes, and personal toiletries are of first quality, and all made locally in Tuscany. The individual, detailed personalisation of each room reflects our most important requirement: to give our guests an authentically Florentine experience combined with a feeling of being at home.

A full breakfast, included in the cost, is based on fresh produce. It is served every morning in the spectacular red lounge, where coffee, tea, herbal teas, mineral water, and a small library are available 24 hours a day.
