The apartment is located in Piazza de' Peruzzi, an ancient and charming square in the centre of Florence, at a real walking distance from all of the most important sites of the city: Santa Croce, Piazza Duomo, Galleria degli Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria, and it isf placed right in the heart of the most alive area of the centre, where you can find all sorts of restaurants, internet cafe, coffee shops, mini market, cinema, theatres, and much more.
The Santa Maria Novella railway station is barely a 10-15 minutes walk away, and the Peretola international airport is at about 20 minutes distance from the apartment by taxi or by coach.
The property is on the 1st floor of a 13th Century historic building, just in front of an ancient Roman theatre (the first Roman construction in Florence), which is now a beautiful semicircular stone building. It has been completely renovated in September 2010, and it offers all the comfort of modern facilities together with the warmth of authentic antique furnitures, paintings, and a painted wood ceiling.
The apartment is composed of a huge main bedroom, with a baldachin king size bed, a Jacuzzi bath tub inside and a bathroom en suite with a comfortable shower.
A lovely living room with a completely equipped kitchen, and upstairs a pleasant loft, which has an open double bedroom with a queen size bed, a bathroom with a huge shower, and another separate bedroom with two single beds.
The size of the apartment is about 100 square meters, and it looks into the ancient square dei Peruzzi, a very quiet and charming corner of Florence, less than 100 meters from the famous church of Santa Croce.
The apartment gets plenty of sun, and it's located in the same building, and on the same floor of two other apartments listed on VRBO: #209297 and #227076 which can host 7 and 6 persons. So if your group includes up to 19 persons you can have the chance to stay together next to each other in 3 different apartments.
My wife Tiziana and I are both architects and we love restoring old buildings in the centre of Florence, using all our skill to preserve the antique and improve modern comfort through new techniques and new building materials. We aim to give the apartments the warmth of our own house including all the facilities necessary for a pleasant stay.
In the last few years I have bought 6 apartments in the same area of the centre of Florence, the Santa Croce's area, since I believe it's the most authentic, safe and still alive part of the city. Everything can be reached in 5 minutes walk: museums, churches, markets, shops of any kind, restaurants, coffee shops, and you can really feel to be in the core of ancient Florence and you have the chance to experience the real life of the town.
