Overview

Historic Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

The apartment is located in an ancient and charming square in the centre of Florence, at a real walking distance from all of the most important sites of the city: Santa Croce, Piazza Duomo, Galleria degli Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria, and it is placed right in the heart of the most alive area of the centre, where you can find all sorts of restaurants, internet cafe, coffee shops, mini market, cinema, theatres, and much more.

The Santa Maria Novella railway station is barely a 10-15 minutes walk away, and the Peretola international airport is at about 20 minutes distance from the apartment by taxi or by coach.

The property is on the 1st floor of a 13th Century historic building, just in front of an ancient Roman theatre (the first Roman construction in Florence), which is now a beautiful semicircular stone building. It has been completely renovated in September 2008, and it offers all the comfort of modern facilities together with the warmth of authentic antique furniture, paintings, and a painted wood ceiling.

The apartment is composed of a master bedroom, with a king size bed and a full bathroom en suite with a Jacuzzi bath tub and a shower stall, and by a second bedroom on the second floor of the same size of the master with a king size bed and another full bathroom en suite with a shower.

On the second floor there is also a studio with a convertible double sofa.

A nice living room and a fully equipped kitchen complete the property.

The size of the apartment is about 90 square meters, and it looks into the ancient square dei Peruzzi, a very quiet and charming corner of Florence, less than 50 meters from the famous church of Santa Croce.

The apartment gets plenty of sun and it's located in the same building, and on the same floor of two other apartments listed on VRBO: #209297 and #209298 which can host 7 persons, the first one, and 6 persons the latter. So if your group includes up to 19 persons you can have the chance to stay together next to each other in three different apartments.

About The Owner

I'm an architect and I like very much to change styles according to the spaces I have to restore, and they have all to be comfortable, full of utilities and warm as a real house.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2008

Why The Owner chose Historic Center

In the last few years I have bought 6 apartments in the same area of the centre of Florence, the Santa Croce's area, since I believe it's the most authentic, safe and still alive part of the city. Everything can be reached in 5 minutes walk: museums, churches, markets, shops of any kind, restaurants, coffee shops, and you can really feel to be in the core of ancient Florence and you have the chance to experience the real life of the town.

Perfect!

The apartment worked out great. The location is ideal to all the major sites. I chose to stay here over the Westin and couldn't be happier with decision.

Tiziana was very swift with email responses and great to work with overall.

A beautiful time in a gorgeous apartment

  • 5 of 5
I must add my voice to those of others and say that this fabulous apartment is just as described! I stayed in three different apartments during a family trip to Italy, and this was by far the most lovely.

Tiziana was unable to meet us, but she sent a very helpful employee who showed us all the amenities--including the A/C, which is very effective both upstairs and downstairs. The apartment is clean, bright, and attractively decorated.

From the apartment, it's a very short walk to the Uffizi Gallery and the Palazzo Vecchio, a bit farther for the Duomo. I traveled with family who had mobility issues (using a cane), but it wasn't too far of a walk even to hit the Accademia, which was the farthest away (and holds Michelangelo's David). Distances were manageable, but do take note that there are 2 flights, probably about 40 stairs, to get to the apartment's door. The cane-user among us still believed the apartment to be worth the climb! If ever I am in Florence again, I will certainly book this apartment.

Great space, great location, could not have been happier with it

  • 5 of 5
We just left there this morning and were sad to go. We couldn't believe how close this apartment was to almost everything we wanted to do. The Uffizzi is maybe 5 minutes away, just around the corner. 10 minutes to Duomo.

The apartment was wonderful, and just as described. Everything seems like new. We are a family of 4 and our teenagers loved the loft space. The living room was very comfortable for cooling off after hours of sightseeing, relaxing before heading out to dinner. The air conditioning works great and was definitely needed during an August visit. The master bedroom shower is very nice. We did laundry in the small machine.

We tried the restaurants on the list that was left in the apartment for us but we weren't big fans of them - we suggest trying some other places, and there are many in the area. The area is neat because it is close to tourist locations and does have tourists but also has a local feeling to it. The gelato place on Via dei Neri is the best we've had after a week of nearly daily tests in Venice and Room. Turn right on Vie dei Neri and there is a nice little coffee/breakfast place on the left hand side a couple of blocks down, right near the wildly popular Al Antico sandwich place, which we did not get around to trying. Next time!

Someone was waiting for us at the apartment to let us in at the appointed time. At departure, we just left the keys in the place and closed the door.

The only thing I can think to improve would be to have some soap available in the bathrooms. It seems not to be the custom in Italy apartment rentals to provide anything but liquid hand soap, so bring your own bar for the shower if you want one. Wifi worked fine, if a little slow.

I have to say I was nervous when Tiziana did not require a deposit to reserve the place, but that too seems to be not so uncommon in Italy rentals (we rented 5 different places this trip, only 2 required deposits).

It is about a 10-15 minute cab ride to or from the train station. You can get a taxi at the nearby Santa Croce taxi stand but be aware that there might be no taxis there and you might need to call the number on the sign. When we did that, a cab showed up within just a minute or two.

We would absolutely stay there again and would highly, highly recommend it to any of our friends who might visit Florence. It was such a great retreat to return to every time we got worn out from sightseeing.

Great location. nice apartment

  • 5 of 5
It was a pleasure in the heat of Florence to return to this well air conditioned apartment every afternoon and evening. The apartment was well appointed, clean and comfortable. The arrangements were easy to make and we were met when we arrived. I would not recommend it for families with children younger than teens and anyone with difficulty climbing stairs. The lovely staircase in the photo is made of metal and is extremely winding and very steep. It was more like climbing a ladder than walking up stairs. There are two bathrooms but we were told to only use the upstairs one for showering which made morning with five people a little hectic. Aside from those two points we liked the apartment very much. There is a restaurant across the street and several within a short walk. We would stay there again.

I spent a lot of time researching where to stay . This place was perfect . Great location . Accessible to everything . Pictures accurately portray this apartment . Great food nearby . Tiziana was professional . She was helpful and was extremely prompt with her emails. I was nervous about getting to the accommodation with all my luggage and her not being there at our assigned time . I was nervous since our only means of me conversing was through emails . I had no phone in Italy No,problem, she was there waiting . Don't hesitate to book this place . We did have a night where the noises outside could be heard but they were not bothersome as far as I was concerned . Also there are a flight of stairs but everyplace I stayed had stairs in Italy :) Don't hesitate to book this place . You won't be disappointed .
