Historic Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, one half-bath - sleeps 5 to 8
In the heart of Renaissance Florence, this large, elegant apartment overlooks the Arno one block downstream from the Excelsior and Grand hotels. The apartment has more than 2,000 square feet of living space. It is on the second floor (American style) of a 19th century palazzo built in the classic Florentine-style. There is an elevator. The view includes the 'Oltrarno' section of the city, with Brunelleschi's Santo Spirito and the Pitti Palace, and beyond are the Belvedere Fortress and the Bellosguardo hill, with ancient villas visited by Dante and Boccaccio, and olive groves, vineyards, and 600-year old cypresses. If you look out the windows to your left, you see the palaces lining the Arno and the Ponte Vecchio. In the midst of this intense little city, the apartment provides an oasis of spacious calm, the ideal refuge from visiting museums and shopping.
