Palazzo Magnani Feroni (“Palace”) is located in Florence, capital of Italy’s Tuscany region and home to many masterpieces of Renaissance art and architecture. Because of Florence's artistic and architectural heritage, it has been ranked by Forbes as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The hotel, which is situated near the Ponte Vecchio in the San Frediano neighborhood of Oltrarno, is regarded as having an elite address for the quintessentially Florence luxury hotel.  San Frediano is one of most popular neighborhoods in Florence and is one of the historical quarters of the city, filled with tower-like homes, renaissance palaces and ancient churches, as well as typical Florentine restaurants, craft shops, art galleries, and clothing stores. The Palazzo Pitti, the Renaissance-era palace that originally belonged to Luca Pitti, a Florentine banker, and then purchased by the Medici family in 1549, is located here. The palace became the ruling family’s main residence. The hotel is a short walk to the major museums and monuments in Florence, including the Uffizi Gallery, Giotto’s bell tower and the Duomo.

Today, the palace is home to the Palatine Gallery, with more than 500 paintings, most from the Renaissance.
 
Giardini di Boboli (Boboli Gardens)
 
Giardini di Boboli (Boboli Gardens) are attached to the Pitti Palace. Originally designed in the 16th century, they make up one of the biggest public parks in central Florence. They are formal gardens with outdoor sculptures, including ancient Roman statues and, most famously, striking Mannerist works, including a grotto that was carved to look as if it was dripping with stalactites.
 
Ponte Vecchio
 
Ponte Vecchio is a medieval arch bridge over the Arno River and is the oldest bridge in Florence.  It is the only one that survived World War II. Today, it is noted for still having shops built along it, as was once common. Butchers initially occupied the shops.  The present tenants are jewelers, art dealers and souvenir sellers.
 
Cappelle Medicee (Medici Chapels)
 
Behind the San Lorenzo Church, the Medici Chapels are the graves of the Medici Family. Here, it is possible to admire the funerary monuments made by Michelangelo to honor the Family, representing Dawn, Day, Dusk and Night.
 
Piazzale Michelangelo and Church of San Miniato al Monte
 
For the best view of Florence, where postcard photographers take their pictures, the Piazzale Michelangelo is the place to see it all.  Built in honor of Michelangelo, the plaza features a bronze copy of the David and the statues that are in the Medici Chapels.  The Church of San Miniato al Monte is one of the finest Romanesque churches in all of Italy with the basilica dating back to the 11th century. Pinocchio’s creator is buried in the cemetery outside.
