Overlooking the rooftops and directly in front of BRUNELLESCHI'S DOME OF THE CHURCH OF SANTO SPIRITO, ths apartment will give you the privilege of enjoying the magic of this unique city during all hours of the day.

Below the house in the morning you will find a market that offers fresh fruit and vegetables sold directly by their producers, bread baked according to the Tuscan tradition, and a plethora of local meats. In addition the apartment is in walking distance of many bars and clubs .

Just around the corner you will find yourself in front of the majesty of the Palazzo Pitti and the Boboli Gardens, and within 5 minutes you'll be at the Ponte Vecchio, the Ufffizi Gallery, Piazza della Signoria and Piazza del Duomo.

In short, just out the front door you will find yourself right in the heart of the most beautiful city in the world.

On the top floor with elevator, it is still a flight of stairs from having to do to access.

The district

Historic district of Santo Spirito

Santo Spirito district, located southwest of the historic center of Florence, has the beautiful Piazza Santo Spirito and its beautiful church .

Founded as a space for the preaching of the Augustinian friars, Piazza Santo Spirito has been frequently used for parties and events of various kinds and is the only place where the Oltrarno market is held every morning, and a special Sunday market for natural products and vintage items .

Even today in Piazza Santo Spirito, especially during spring and summer, there are concerts and shows. In these times of the year the atmosphere is unique thanks to the many restaurants and nightclubs that make it one of the most vibrant squares of Florence.

Looking at the Basilica of the Holy Spirit has a simple façade of yellow ocher; seeing it from the outside it is hard to believe that this place of worship is one of the most beautiful Renaissance churches of Tuscany .

It was built by Filippo Brunelleschi only two years before his death, and the artist wanted to create a new architectural style. Unfortunately only a few buildings of this style were made by his successors

Absolutely perfect place with unprecedented ambiance.

  • 5 of 5

The property was just perfect. Every convenience you would want. The bathroom was exceptionally lovely with a huge shower which is very unusual in Europe. Washing machine, freezer for my martini ice cubes. The location and surrounding restaurants was superb, absolutely superb. The apartment is uniquely Florence. The bedroom window looks out on the church of Santo Spirito a big player in art history. The two nearest bakeries are beyond comparison in the USA bar none!

Excellent location + wonderful hostess!

  • 5 of 5

Sara's home in Santo Spirito is in an excellent location for living like a local and a short walk to all the touristy high points of Florence, which is pretty much the best of both worlds! We loved waking up to the sound of the church bells and there are a few excellent restaurants right in the area, plus an AMAZING gelato shop right at the base of the bridge. A big bonus is that the bed is very comfortable and there is a ton of space, so this would be the perfect apartment for a group. We were excited that the apartment had a laundry machine, so we did a load since our stay fell almost exactly in the center of our trip to Italy, but unfortunately everything we washed ended up with blue stains all over our clothes. I'm not quite sure what happened or why, but it definitely put a damper on our trip. I would absolutely stay here again + Sara is a wonderful, friendly and kind hostess!

Authentic italian neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Sara was a very gracious hostess and was helpful from the moment we got off the train until we pulled up in a taxi at her front doorstep. She made sure we had a map of the city, told us what to see in the neighborhood and explained that since we were just across the river from the Uffizi, Academia, etc,, that the neighborhood was not so touristy and the restaurant food would be less expensive and more authentic. She was right!! The apartment was clean and, though it was located near a busy square where there were often late night parties, closing the windows blocked out the noise and we had no trouble sleeping. The kitchen is small but serviceable and there were plenty of dishes and utensils. My husband is tall so did have a little trouble with the low ceilings in the main living space, but we coped with it. I would definitely recommend this apartment as a reasonable cost alternative to some of the options in the middle of the city - and walking into the city is a matter of 5 minutes!!
