The splendid Santa Croce square, amongst the most beautiful and extraordinary in the world, is the setting for one of the most famous places in the Florentine Historic Center. The William occupies the rooms of the ground floor of Palazzo Doni, which was built in the 1400s for the wedding of Agnolo Doni and Maddalena Strozzi. In those years, and in these rooms, Raffaello gave expression to his genius, as he was a guest there so he could paint the pair of portraits of the newly weds which now hang in the Gallery of Palazzo Pitti. And also Michelangelo, who painted the Holy Madonna with the Sacred Family, which is hung in the Uffici Gallery.
Come in and feel transported back to the Renaissance, with music and colours that hark back to the golden era of the Medici Family. Sit at one of the impressive unique wooden tables and listen to blues and jazz, drinking an ale or enjoying the taste and flavour of Sienese hams with Chianti mousse. Live Florence in this way, through its colours, its sounds, its habits and its traditions and customs, its rich history full of pride and elegance. Live Florence with those who love it and belong to it, live it through The William.
