If you want a taste of life as a Florentine aristocratic, this comfortable 13-room guesthouse is a good place to start. Still owned (and immaculately run) by the Niccolini di Camugliano family, and filled with their antiques and pictures, the frescoed 14th century palazzo is located bang opposite the Duomo and many of the rooms have in- your-face views of Brunelleschi’s famous dome.
