A historical place equipped for the modern demands of companies and individuals. Founded in 1214, the Bigallo would welcome pilgrims on their way to Rome. It was soon transformed into a Benedictine monastery that housed the poor and travelers. Today it is a hostel, a center for conferences and training, and a place for events and ceremonies.
Being a stone’s throw from Florence it enjoys a magnificent view of the city and the hills. It’s the ideal place for events, conferences, seminars and private parties, suitable for groups of various sizes thanks to the variety of spaces available.
The rooms, of different capacities, can be used for meetings, training rooms with up to 50 seats and for ceremonies in the conference hall that can accommodate about 100 people. The medieval kitchen hosts dinners and receptions and the restored chapel is the ideal location for weddings or conferences.
