Palestra Ricciardi has proved itself as a tried and true establishment to its varied clientele for over fifty years and provides all of the latest equipment and décor to satisfy modern fitness needs.
Choose from a variety of cardio machines including stair, elyptical, treadmill, rowing and bike. Feel energized during your work out by the abundance of natural lighting provided by a multitude of skylights and windows while enjoying the central Florentine garden outside.

Palestra Ricciardi still adds to its unique ambience with quirky and athletic artwork. There is also a separate spinning room and rows of coded lockers available to store belongings.
