We stayed at Panella's for 4 nights during the dark and rainy month of November. We found the residence to be comfortable, cozy, and quiet. The furnishing were interesting and distinctive. The room (No. 44) had a marvelous bathtub which was welcomed by my wife who takes many baths. The breakfasts were wonderful. Graziella knows of a great bakery and...

We loved our visit in Florence and panella's was the perfect place to stay! Minutes away from the attractions, big, cozy and spacious room and excellent host! She greeted us right away with a map of the main attractions and served a delicious breakfast right to our room. We would definitely recommend :)

We absolutely loved Panella's! It was a great place to stay. The room was nice and spacious and clean. Unfortunately, we were only able to eat breakfast one of the 3 mornings as we had early morning plans and Graziella did not start breakfast until around 9. But the one day we had was delicious and wonderful. Panella's was just...

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! for your appreciation. We are happy that our house was your house in Florence. The breakfast is possible from 8:30 onwards, because we are not refilled before 7:45 - 8:00. Unfortunately, you were out very soon. We wait to meet again soon. Sincerely. Graziella Panella

Previously a convent, this unique B&B is a comfortable stay in a location convenient to fine eateries, the Duomo, Uffizi and Academia Gallery. Bedroom: clean, high ceiling, comfortable bed and the best pillows ever! Nice clean private bathroom. The hostess, Graziella is sweet as pie and full of helpful tidbits about the area.

My wive and I stayed at Panella's Residence for three nights. It was perfect for us because it is close to the Duomo and easy walking distance to all of the great places while being just far enough outside the core to be quiet and comfortable. It is very clean, the breakfasts good and Graziella was a fine host, recommending...

This B&B was just a short walk to all of the major sites in the city. The rooms are incredibly large and comfortable with murals and beamed ceilings. Breakfast was delicious. Everything was very positive and Graziella was very helpful in facilitating anything that was needed. We've stayed in many hotels in Europe and this is one of the best....

We chose Panella's residence based on its credibility in the Rick Steves book and it did not disappoint! Graziella is the most gracious, and warm host. We had such a good time chatting with her during breakfast. We slept so well every night in our spacious but cozy room. I will recommend her B&B and stay here again!

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
