Welcome to Hotel Scoti


Hotel Scoti is a unique pensione in the heart of the historical centre of Florence. Located in an elegant 16th century palazzo in Via Tornabuoni, the most fashionable street in town.

Pensione Scoti is also part of the city's history. Featuring 17th century floor-to-ceiling frescoes in the spacious living room create a very special atmosphere. The grand living room on the second floor was frescoed by Tommaso Gherardini, Agostino Fortini, Luigi Lorenzi, Pietro della Nave, Giuseppe Nobili and Domenico Fabbroni with rural landscapes featuring the country properties of Poggio Gherardo and Villa Moreni.

In 1559, Simone di Jacopo Corsi bought old properties and land on via Tornabuoni and asked Giorgio Vasari to create a family palace on the site. Vasari designed the façade but was not able to complete the building due to his death in 1574. Bartolomeo Ammannati, an architect consistently employed by patron Cosimo I de' Medici, completed the work.

The entrance portal is still dominated by a 1577 bust of Francesco I de' Medici by Jean de Boulogne, a Flemish sculptor known as Giambologna. In 1790 the Palazzo was given a new shape and colour inside. Pensione Scoti has been welcoming guests since the late 1800s.
