The flooring is the old Florentine terracotta, there is a small kitchenette with all the amenities necessary in a modern day kitchen.

Seeing is believing how welcoming and beautiful this apartment is. The apartment is on the 3rd floor with no lift, so there are 70 steps, but it is all well worth the journey to this 'Medici jewel'. The location is exceptional, for you are stones throw to all the Florentine museums and important sites, shops, and bars and restaurants.
