The market appears as a small Christmas village with typical wooden houses popular in Christmas markets in Germany and in the north of Italy. Here, you will find Italian and international products that make perfect gifts, including Christmas decorations, candles, tableware, clothing and much more, as well as food and wine specialties to be enjoyed on the spot or taken home.

Wear something warm, wait for the tree to light up and admire the beautiful terracotta life statues made by a local artisan in front of Santa Maria del Fiore. This is a more traditional event, inspired by country values.

Kent University at PSN

Kent State University recently joined us in the Palazzo San Niccolo lounge for a seminar on Luxury hospitality . The presentation went over how to succeed in a luxury hospitality business with real life case studies about Your Place In Florence and the Palazzos.
The main question was: ‘How do you create and maintain an alternative luxury hospitality business?’  Federico, our manager explained the process starting from the idea (why choose this industry) all the way to the final execution (what makes your business desirable). In between, he touched on a couple of important keywords including tourism, people,  passion & memorable experiences. Federico also explained that the industry has evolved from ‘what you can offer me’ to ‘how does it make me feel.’ With the millennial generation, it’s all about creating a real, genuine, inspirational experience with personalized activities created by the businesses local partners.  So, beyond the logistics, the way to create and maintain an alternative luxury hospitality business is to think outside of the box and become the consumer. The business must think about how the service can truly be genuine and memorable and what the necessary steps are to create significant partnerships with quality local businesses.

Florence Revisited

“Exploring the treasures of the Tuscan capital beyond its most famous attractions” .

The American Magazine The Epoch Times speaks about Palazzo San Niccolò. Thanks to the editor Kristine Jannuzzi for the beautiful article about our magical city and for the paragraph dedicated to Palazzo San Niccolò Firenze.

 

Here below an abstract of the article:

“I stayed in the heart of this neighborhood for the first part of my most recent visit, in Palazzo San Niccolò, a charming restored property that opened as a boutique hotel in 2017. The oldest part of the structure was once a 13th-century monastery, and you can still see several original arches that were part of its cloister. Behind the building, the private garden is a tranquil oasis that made me feel as though I were staying at a friend’s villa in the Tuscan countryside. The rooms and apartments are available for short- and long-term bookings, and if you prefer a more independent setting in an area that has a true local flavor, Palazzo San Niccolò is a great choice” …

There is no better way than to sip a Negroni to celebrate the beginning of Summer in Florence

If you want to fully dive into the Italian lifestyle there is no better way than to sip a Negroni to celebrate the beginning of Summer. The year 2019 also marks the 100th anniversary of its creation and you can consider this occurrence as another excuse to spoil yourself with an extra glass of this bitter cocktail. 

The Negroni cocktail is one of the most popular cocktails throughout Florence. It is said to have been created right here in Florence by Camillo Negroni in the early 20s when he was coming home from one of his many trips from London. He asked the bartender to add some gin into his Milano-Torino. A Milano-Torino is made with red vermouth and bitters, thus adding that signature gin created his masterpiece. Today, the cocktail is made with equal parts bitters, red vermouth, and gin, then topped with a garnish of orange. The drink is known for its dry flavor and pungent aroma. The drink is mean to be enjoyed before dinner due to its high alcohol level, but any of these 5 bars will serve it at anytime you ask.

Here are our top 5 places to get a Negroni Cocktail

5. Ditta Artigianale

This bar doubles as a cafe and bar, depending on what time of day you stop by. During the day, they are known for their specialty roast coffee which are perfectly paired with a variety of sandwiches and pastries. At night, this brooklyn style bar is the perfect place to get a cocktail and enjoy it in a calm, easy-going atmosphere.

Location: Via dei Neri, 30/32 R

4. Antico Caffe del Moro-Art Bar

This bar is older styled and small, but the perfect atmosphere if you want a calm night out. All of the drinks are made to perfection, with most including a fresh fruit garnish. The bar is full of tables to sit at or you can simply hang out by the bar. The Bartenders are extremely knowledgeable of all drink-especially the Negroni.

Location:  Via del Moro, 4

3. Harry’s Bar

This bar is known for making its guests feel like family. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, making it a perfect night starter or night cap. The drinks are made perfectly, including the Negroni.

There is also a classic italian cuisine menu to choose from if you’re in the mood to grab a bite to eat.

Location: Lungarno Amerigo Vespucci, 22/R

2. Atrium Bar

Located inside of the Four Seasons hotel in Florence, this bar is truly an elegant experience. There is both inside and outside seating, with a live band on most weekends. During the day, the bar is known for its afternoon tea session with light appetizers. In the evening, you can enjoy dinner and drinks in this romantic setting. The bar is most known for its Moulin rouge cocktail, and its twist on the negroni, that they call “vintage”. The bar can be accessed by anyone, not just guest sof the hotel. If you are a hotel guest, you can even order the drinks from room service to enjoy right in your own room.

1. Negroni Bar

This bar is known for its Negroni cocktail, as the name suggests. This restaurant and bar offers a wide, traditional menu full of Italian staples. They are mostly known for their pizza, but their spaghetti is a close second. There is also an outside eating area with a quiet night life scene past sundown.
