The Casa dei Tintori B&B in Florence was born after a careful and accurate restoration of a medieval house in the historical centre to offer lovers of Medieval Florence a gorgeous holiday in the true spirit of the best Italian bed and breakfast homely hospitality.
The house is a refined and quiet residence called Casa dei Tintori (Dyers' House) because it was built in the 13th century as a large wool weaving and textile dyeing workshop.
Today the house is a charming bed and breakfast in the center of Florence with the entrance on Corso dei Tintori #33 in the historical Santa Croce neighbourhood. The district once teemed with craftsmen's workshops grouped under the aegis of the "Arte dei Tintor" (Art of the Dyers).
From the hotel, it is an easy walk to all of Florence's main sights and monuments which are renowed symbols of Medieval and Renaissance Florence which makes the city one of the most widely visited cultural destinations worldwide.
Its central position in the historical centre of Florence, steps away from the Arno River, make the bed and breakfast Casa dei Tintori the ideal location from which to start off on your exploration of Florence and the surrounding Tuscan countryside. The elegant B&B is steps away from Piazza Santa Croce, Piazza della Signoria, Uffizi Art Gallery and Ponte Vecchio and only 10 minutes walking distance from the Duomo (Cathedral) and 20 minutes from the Santa Maria Novella train station.
