HISTORY of the PALACE
Hotel Europa’s unique palace dates back to the 14th century. In 1800’s the palace was a religious boarding school where wealthy girls could learn the art of needlework and good manners.

It was also during this century that the house was owned by the famous Hungarian virtuoso pianist and composer Franz Liszt, credited with the invention of the symphonic poem and the modern solo piano recital.

Description

With a long history of friendly and personal hospitality, many of our guests return to find, in the quiet atmosphere of our rooms, their home away from home in the oldest part of Florence.

In the morning you can enjoy a buffet breakfast featuring some delicious cardamom-flavored croissant handmade by a nearby local bakery and a special “cappuccino”…a great way to start your day in Florence on the right foot!

Next door to the breakfast area is the Living and Reading Room. Surrounded by original murals, you can have a glass of wine, gather with friends or other guests, relax or simply day-dream about your Florence night out.
