Hotel Florence Center for Meetings and Ceremonies

Originally known as Palazzo Grifoni, known today as Budini Gattai, dates back to the 1500's, when Ugolino di Jacopo Grifoni, secretary to duke Cosimo I de' Medici, began work on this ambitious project to give prestige to his family. This historical home, sober yet attractively decorated with bricks, is ready to be a venue to host memorable parties.  

Set in the inside courtyard, the garden provides an exclusive place to seek relaxation, privacy and comfort. It is even ideal to host lively wedding receptions, where guests can walk around as they celebrate in an evocative and tranquil setting.
