Foresteria Valdese Firenze

Certificate of Excellence
The lodge is situated in the heart of the Oltrarno quarter, a few minutes walk from the Old Bridge. Palazzo Salviati a treasure trove of numerous works of art, was built in the mid-1600s and purchased in 1861 by the Presbyterian Church of Ireland, wich donated it to the Waldesian Board. Since 1922, the same building has also been the seat of the Gould Institute with its hospitality services and activities for the formation and support of minors suffering social hardships. The lodge was created in the late 1960s precisely to sustain the cost of the children's Institute. The structure consists of 39 rooms with bath, of different types-from singles to rooms for up to five person- suitable for individual travellers, families, couple and groups.

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour. Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and they cannot help but stare at the architectural masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria delle Carmine churches. Tourists and Florentines alike join up in the area between Santo Spirito and San Frediano, connecting the Tuscan soul to the international spirit permeating the city.
