An unsurpassed view of the Uffizi across the river Arno to the Ponte Vecchio, the Palazzo Vecchio, and the Duomo awaits you here at this apartment for rent in Florence. Within walking distance of virtually everything, you'll also enjoy the quieter, less-touristed environment of the south bank.
This palazzo dates back to the 15th century, when the banks of the Arno River were flanked by palazzi (palaces) belonging to patrician families such as the Bardis. The edifice was modified over the centuries until the mid-19th century, when a famous architect, Enrico Poggi, endeavored to transform Florence into a capital city. He modeled the palazzo after the Lungarno Torrigiani area in order to maintain the classical renaissance color palette of cream plaster and gray “pietra serena” stone, which is visible in so many buildings throughout the city. A daytime doorman is available and each apartment is made secure with a bell and a buzzer.

The palazzo housing this Florence apartment is situated on the south side of the Arno River in the Oltrarno district of Florence. On one side, the accommodation in Florence overlooks the Arno and the Uffizi Gallery, and on the other side, the via de'Bardi. In the neighborhood you'll find food shops, clothing stores, and restaurants. Nearby Attractions: The Otrarno is the area of Florence that is south of the Arno River. While it contains some of the most famous and characteristic Renaissance buildings, it is also a quarter known for authentic flavor. Here you will find the Santo Spirito Church designed by Brunelleschi, the Santa Maria del Carmine Church with its famous Brancacci Chapel containing Masaccio’s exquisite frescoes, and the Palazzo Pitti. There are magnificent views of Florence from the Forte Belvedere and Piazzale Michelangelo, a prime destination for a gelato or glass of wine while watching the sunset. For those who like quirky, a visit to La Specola Museum, with wax anatomical models from the 18th century, is sure to fascinate. In addition to all of this, the quarter has many fine restaurants and shops, as well as an open-air market in the Piazza Santo Spirito.
