About Palazzo Borghese
Located in the very city center, close to Piazza Duomo and Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Borghese is one of the most significant examples of neoclassical architecture of Tuscan main city. Even though it preserves a majestic facade, this palace is often unnoticed, almost stifeled by the narrowness of the street.
Once entered, instead, the beauty and the splendor are outstanding; the imposing staircase of honor takes to the noble floor where one can find the "Mirror Hall", which was Paolina's Bonaparte bedroom at the time.
The heart of the Palace is made by the "Gallery" or "Celebration Hall", the architectural and artistic jewel: two hundred square meters of frescos, stuccos, bas reliefs, sculptures, columns and drapes.
Today, as in the past, Palazzo Borghese remains one of the most remarkable palaces of the city, suitable for prestigious meetings and expositions of high-quality.
