In this picture you can see the special room downstairs: very romantic!

Its origin dates back to pre Romans.. probably there was a mill or a laundry, since the archaeological excavations has revealed the presence of water in the past.

Nowadays the room is available for special events. Make a reservation for the New Year's Eve dinner in Florence, in the heart of one of the oldest city of Italy..
