Romantic apartment has inspiring views of Florence. Top floor, sunny bright. Located on the Oltrarno side of the river directly across from the Uffizi museum. Fabulous terrace.

1 bedroom with divisible king bed, 1 bathroom, living room, kitchen, large terrace with spectacular views. 463 square feet on two levels with living room, kitchen, bathroom with shower, terrace downstairs. Bedroom upstairs (up one short narrow flight of stairs).

6th floor with elevator. Apartment entrance is up 1 flight of stairs after exiting the elevator. Washer, wifi internet, electric stove, microwave, satellite TV. A/C in living room & bedroom. Building has a doorman.

Location

This amazingly sun filled apartment is at the top of a Renaissance palazzo that faces the gallery of the Uffizi gallery, the most famous museum in Florence, across the Arno river.

Exterior

The building blends with its Renaissance-age neighbors with grey stone, pietra serena, accenting its classical proportions. The building is locked and has a doorman during business hours.

Interior

There are a few steps from the street to the level of the elevator which takes you all the way to the floor below the Torella apartment.

The staircase, 18 steps, is beautifully painted and leads past a coat closet to the main level of the apartment.

The expansive, private terrace is the highlight of the main level. It faces uphill and from there you can see across the river to Santa Croce, Ponte alle Grazie, San Miniate and Piazzale Michelangelo with its beautiful views. A garden in the summer, the terrace has a table and chairs for dining and enjoying the sun and views.

From the terrace, step into a charming room that has a full height window and door on its terrace side. There is a glass-topped table with two chairs, a bench and shelf unit in this room. A pass-through window opens onto the kitchen.

Three steps from this dining room leads into the living room with comfortable sofa, chair, credenza with television. The credenza contains the dishes and silver ware as well as the microwave. Alongside the credenza is also the refrigerator-freezer.

The kitchen is small, but has everything for preparing meals: two burner electric stove, sink, coffee pot, drip coffee maker, electric tea kettle, pots, pans, knives, utensils.

The bathroom has a shower, toilet, bidet, sink and washing machine. It has an independent heating unit.

The bedroom is accessed up a narrow staircase that rises from the living room. There are 19 steps that aren`t wide, about 19'. Under the steps is the clothes closet and a small closet that holds the vacuum.

If the terrace weren`t enough for views and light, the bedroom may even be more wonderful. A room built on top of the building, the bedroom has an arched window in each wall with a memorable view from each. The bed is a divisible king, that can be organized as separate single beds for traveling friends. If you stay up late, maybe even just enjoying the view, you can close the light-blocking drapes so you don`t have to rise with the sun.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was our first trip to Florence and we chose this apartment because it seemed like the perfect place. We were not disappointed. The location was incredible - easy walking distance to the places we wanted to visit and the views!! The apartment had everything we needed and was extremely comfortable. It was close to shops, groceries, restaurants, gelato(!)so we did not have far to go for things we needed. Our greeter met us as scheduled (even though we didn't know our arrival time until the week before), was friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful in letting us know how to operate things and where to go for what we needed. We would definitely stay in Torella again.

Not only does the Torella’s tower bedroom have a beautiful view of Florence, it is as I said to Kathryn more than once, surely one of the most beautiful views in the world. We loved our stay at the Torella - - it was a magical time in a perfect setting! Thank you!
