Palazzo Gondi is a palace in Florence, Italy, located a block from Piazza della Signoria.
It was built in 1490 under design by Giuliano da Sangallo, who was inspired by other major works of stately buildings in the city, such as Palazzo Medici and Palazzo Strozzi.

On the first floor there is also a monumental fireplace which was designed by Sangallo.The property lets the apartment on the last floor which has 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 4 living rooms, 1 dining room, a fitness area, a small staff bedroom with bathroom and a beautiful terrace with a stunning view on Florence.
