LUXURY APARTMENT IN FLORENCE, ITALY

Map

Located on via de Benci, this apartment is well-located in central Florence between the Arno River, the Uffizi Gallery and Santa Croce. The Santa Croce sector has maintained its historic buildings and the characteristic flavor in its neighborhoods. Not only is the Santa Croce church a must-see, but all of the other top sites of the city are within an easy walk from the apartment. Nearby Attractions: The Santa Croce quarter is located on the southeastern part of the historic center of Florence. Since the Middle Ages, it was an area specializing in leather. In fact, today it is still filled with leather shops! The large Santa Croce Church, filled with famous frescoes and tombs of some of the city’s greats, is the main structure of the quarter. The piazza in front of the church is filled day and night with tourists and locals. Some of the best gelato shops and restaurants can be found in this neighborhood. Piazza dei Ciompi has a daily flea market as well as a large monthly market (last Sunday). Plaz, located across from the 16th century Loggia del Pesce is a fun and casual place to stop for a drink and live music. Santa Maria Novella Train Station: 20 minute walk Ponte Vecchio: 10 minute walk Piazza Signoria: 5 minute walk Uffizi Gallery: 5 minute walk
