Unique 2BR 2BA Luxury Apartment

Located along the banks of the River Arno, between two of the most renown bridges in Florence, Ponte Vecchio and Santa Trinita Bridge, the apartment TraDuePonti offers its guests the chance to enjoy a unique stay in the very heart of this beautiful city, and a wonderful view on the River Arno, the river banks, and Ponte Vecchio.

Recently restored using high-quality materials, such as Vietri majolica tiles and parquet floor, the apartment is furnished with elegant and modern furniture, designed by reputable firms, and equipped with all conveniences.

Located at a walking distance from all the major historical and artistic points of interest, and from all kind of shops and restaurants, markets and theatres, this apartment will make your stay more enjoyable in this unique combination of history and contemporary style in one of the most characteristic corners of the old Florence.

Tuscany: Tuscany is one of the most renown regions in Italy, full of art, history, and breathtaking landscapes. Besides Florence, considered one of the most beautiful towns in the world, places of great interest are: Siena, Lucca, Pisa, San Gimignano, the Chianti Area, with its vineyards and olive groves, the Lunigiana area, the Tuscan Riviera, and many more.

The area: Ponte Vecchio: the Old Bridge in itself is worth a trip to Florence, but also Palazzo Pitti, Boboli Gardens, Santo Spirito, gli Uffizzi and Piazza della Signoria are extremely close to the apartment. Besides, restaurants, shops, groceries, cinemas, theatres, and anything you may need during your stay, are right there.

Gorgeous apartment. Everything you could possibly need for a short or long term stay in Florence. Beautiful location on the river and overlooking the Ponte Vecchio. Allesandra was very helpful in assisting us with planning our trip. Could not have asked for a better place to stay. Thank you for sharing your beautiful apartment.

Perfect location, perfect season

  • 5 of 5
We fully enjoyed autumn in Florence with nice weather, clear all over our 6-day stay,
with much help by Alessandra in retrieving the lost baggage from the airport etc.

The location is more than perfect for going around in the historic central Florence,
which made our second stay in Florence very fruitful and up-to-plan.
The apartment is fully equipped in the kitchen, living room and bedrooms,
even with very convenient ready-to-use PC and printer.
Many times of to-and-fro every day on the Borgo San Jacopo just in front of this
location made us feel this town is truly our home, so we like to RETURN back shortly.

Owner's Response: Thank you Hideto. Your kindness, politeness and respect is hard to find. Wheneve you and your lovely wife decide to come back, a bottle of Vinsanto and a box of Cantucci will be your "welcome back" present.

Alessandra made our trip memorable

  • 5 of 5
I read the review of Erin and she is absolutely right. It is hard to add to her review but I will try. The location of the apartment is perfect, right in the busy hub of high-end shops and of course the Ponte Vecchio. Across the bridge is the best restaurant we personally tried Trattoria Ponte Vecchio. The apartment is absolutely beautiful and it contributed in large measure to our falling in love with Florence. The Academia Museum, Piazzale Michelangelo, Palazzo Pitti, the shopping, the food, the wine...We are planning to return. Just wandering the streets was delightful and sitting in the living room looking at the lights on the River Arno and listening to live music were highlights. What could be better. Added to that was Alessandra, so friendly and helpful. I felt as if I had known her for a long time, even when we first met. She arranged transportation for us back to the train station when we had to leave which we so appreciated as taxis are hard to come by. You will not be disappointed staying here.

Favourite stay in Italy

  • 5 of 5
The pictures do not do this apartment justice. From the moment you walk in the lobby you are left with a fabulous impression. The location of this apartment, really just cannot be beat. You can almost touch the ponte vecchio, you are so close to the restaurants and shops, and a 1min walk to a huge supermarket, full of everything you could need. The rooms are gorgeous including the living area, but the view... The view is just spectacular. It truly is jaw-dropping and we loved just watching the goings on on the river Arno. The rooms and baths were both a great size. The views as shown in the pictures from the bedroom and the living area are exactly as pictured. Incredible! Gabriele, the owner, was amazing to deal with, super friendly and full of good advice. We highly recommend a trip up to Piazalle Michelangelo for the most gorgeous view of Florence, if you're up for the climb to the top of the Duomo that's a gorgeous view too! The David is amazing and the best gelato is 2 bridges away, Ponte Alla Carraia, same side of the river... Amazing!! Do not hesitate to book this apartment!!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
The view of Ponte Vecchio from the apartment could not be better. The listing description is very accurate and the manager met us on time as promised. There is a private courtyard in the middle of the apartment which my children enjoyed. Borgo San Jacopo is the best street to stay in Florence in my opinion. Close to authentic restaurants and not as 'touristy' as the city centre. Would definitely stay again!

Simply amazing

  • 5 of 5
Wow. This apartment is absolutely amazing. I'm very sad to have had to leave, because I would like to stay there forever! The view of the Ponte Vecchio and the Arno river from the apartment are intoxicating. There is not a negative thing I can say about this place. It is well equiped, easy to find, reasonably priced, PERFECTLY located, and there was excellent communication with Allesandra before, during, and even after our visit. I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment (except that I hope it is not so popular that it is booked next time I visit Florence). After staying here, I would not DREAM of staying anywhere else if I am fortunate enough to return to Florence. It really was a treasure.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words, Melissa, to me it is a always a pleasure to know that "my" renters had a pleasant stay at the apartment, and a privilege if I have a second opportunity to offer a special vacation in our incredible city.
