Located in the middle of the historic centre of Florence (via Ghibellina, 110), very close to the Duomo, Piazza Santa Croce and Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Borghese is one of the most striking examples of neoclassic architecture of the Tuscan capital. Although it preserves an impressive facade, this building often passes unnoticed, almost suffocated by the anxiety of the road. Once inside, however, the beauty and the pomp are dazzling: the imposing honour staircase leads to the noble floor. The heart of the building is formed by the Mirror Room and the Monumental Gallery (or Reception Hall), which is a true architectural and artistic jewel: two hundred square meters of frescoes, plasters, bas-reliefs, niches, statues, columns and draperies.
