Hotel in Florence symbol of the city
The Hotel Brunelleschi has also joined enrollment in the register of Florence historic buildings and it surprises its guests since the outside, with the front of the beautiful Byzantine tower of Pagliazza, one of the oldest buildings in the historical centre still standing. The structure was originally part of the city walls, then became a women’s prison. Hence the name “Pagliazza” which stems from the beds of straw for the prisoners. After several changes over the centuries, the tower of Pagliazza is now completely renovated and a cultural reference point for hotel guests and the entire city. Inside it, in fact, there are an American bar, the Tower Bar and two restaurants also open to the public: the Santa Elisabetta Restaurant on the first floor, and the Osteria della Pagliazza on the ground floor, both managed by the young chef Simone Bertaccini.
