While walking around the city center of Florence you will find the Piazza Santissima Annunziata, near the University of Florence. In this wonderful place there are two Patrician palaces. The one on the right is the nowadays known as Budini-Gatta, long before called Palazzo Grifoni.
The Grifoni family lived there for centuries and it s said that one of the Grifoni sons was engaged with a beautiful lady when he parted to the war. The legend tells us that the future wife had been waiting for years to her beloved return. This is the reason why when you look at the second floor you will find a window that is always open, a symbol of the lady waiting for her love to come back.
From Il Salviatino, your luxury hotel in Florence, we recommend you to discover this love story on this coming holidays and feel the passion of this marvelous city.
