In Florence there are many stunning places to easily fall in love with, and Velona’s Jungle is one of them. This charming and luxurious boutique hotel is placed in the western end of the historic center of Florence, an area where the past and future meet the present.
Surrounded by one of the oldest surviving doors of the city walls, Porta al Prato (1285), by the first Florentine railway station and today’s venue for meetings, congresses and various events, Stazione Leopolda, by the Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, a multifunctional cultural structure opened on 2011, by the first tram line in Florence that runs from the suburb of Scandicci to the main railroad station SMN, by the Parco delle Cascine, Florence’s largest public park bordering the Arno River.
Velona’s Jungle is the perfect venue for curious guests who love the unusual while visiting Florence. VJ a stunning designer interior for explorers and collectors, where many of the elegant objets d’art and furnishings date from the mid century, when the family’s patriarch – a respected Florentine art dealer – began collecting pieces during his travels in Italy and abroad. His fabulous finds from trips through Florence, Rome, Naples, London, Paris, and Vienna in the 1950’s were paired exquisitely with the prestigious antique and period furnishings from his gallery, creating a one-of-a-kind home.
