The b&b is well connected by local public bus from and to the city center. The historic center of Florence can also be easily reached on foot with a pleasant walk.
Ruggero is an agronomist, born in Umbria but after living in Florence for so many years, he is practically a native of the city. Along with Tiziana, their two daughters and beagle dog, they call a large turn-of-the-19th-century house their home where they welcome guests from all over the world. Ruggero loves spending time outdoors and hiking in the mountains, gardening, winter sports and anything related to the automotive world. He speaks English well, and basic level French and German.
His wife, Tiziana, is a landscape architect and interior designer, and her imprint can be seen in the restoration and furnishings of their Palagetto Guest House. She knows Florence very well: monuments, shops, points of interest and loves to share her favorites with guests of their B&B. Tiziana speaks French pretty fluently and feels comfortable in speaking English as well.
