About the property

The apartment Montebello is located on the fifth floor with lift until the fourth floor than there are 2o steps to reach the apartment. It consists of a large living room, one double room, one single room, a spacious bathroom with shower and a fully furnished kitchen. TV, WiFI, air conditioning, dish washer and washing machine are provided.

Apartment “Montebello” is located in the hearth of Florence and it is located one of the most silent and peaceful city-centre streets, Via Montebello. The apartment's neighborhood was called “Ognissanti” thanks to the presence of the florentine-baroque Church “Ognissanti”. From 1865 to 1871 Florence was the capital of the recently enstablished Kingdom of Italy, so that many palaces in the Ognissanti neighborhood (including that of Montebello Apartment) were built in order to host the members of the Government and their families. The area is plenty of typical italian craftsmen's bottegas, medieval churches, osterias, trattorias and outstanding italian restaurants. The famous Lungarni are just around the corner and the Duomo is just a five minutes walk from Montebello Apartment, Palazzo Vecchio – 10 minutes, Ponte Vecchio – 7 minutes, Palazzo Pitti – 15 minutes and the Uffizzi Museum – 8 minutes, Santa Maria Novella station- 5 minutes.

Just next to the apartment's palace is situated the bus stop of the Florence Site-seeing red buses and others. Nearby the Montebello street there are two supermarkets, some bakeries and delicious pastry shops.

If you walk up to via della Scala take a look to the historical pharmacy, the oldest in Europe. The Pharmacy of Santa Maria Novella is not an ordinary pharmacy: enter here will be like entering a museum.

Take note - senior travelers

  • 5 of 5

I thought I'd give this little review a different spin, the experience of a pair of 70 year olds in the Apartment Montebello. We were looking for a place a little distance from the more lively sections of the city but still close enough to easily enjoy all of the benefits. A terrace for breakfasts and afternoon wine and cheese was also a must. So, my fellow seniors, you can read the descriptions and see that this apartment ticks all the boxes.

By the way, the pictures here don't do justice to the view you will have from the terrace. What might give you pause is the honest description of stairs. A full flight of 20 (broken by a landing) from the elevator to the 4th floor and a further flight up to the rooftop terrace. I can tell you that we managed just fine and we are not senior triathletes by any measure.

You will be rewarded, not only by a beautifully kept apartment but also by the opportunity to live like a local for a week. Around the corner is Borgo Ognissanti upon which you can immerse yourself in the real life of Firenze. Within a block of the apartment are many bakeries; we used Forno Becagli every morning for fresh pastries and once for a great picnic dinner on the terrace as they also make sandwiches in th afternoon. One of the best restaurants in town, Trattoria Armando is there. The little Conad supermarket where you will get your milk, coffee etc, ; there is even a great gelato place down the street.

Now for you youngsters all of the attractions you want to see are a 10 to 15 minute walk away. For you oldsters who need to preserve your energy there is a cab stand in front the Westin Hotel - just 3 minutes walk. For 10-15 euro you can get anywhere in town. You are on vacation after all.

So I hope I have convinced a few of my fellow seniors to try this way of immersing yourself in a place like the apartment Montebello. You will find that Signora Lucia is una bella signora who provides for all of your needs.

Cute Cozy Nest in Florence

  • 5 of 5

Apartment Montebello was picture perfect from the moment of arrival to our departure. Lucia was a lovely host and her immaculate apartment was fully equipped down to the tiniest detail. The view of the Duomo from the rooftop terrace was spectacular and was perfect for unwinding after long days of touring the beautiful city of Florence. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone traveling to Florence looking for a clean, comfortable place to stay and hope to return someday soon to visit this lovely spot again. My highest complements to the host for providing such hospitable accommodations.

Fantastic stay with amazing view of Florence

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! Ms Lucia was a wonderful host, providing us with some information on Florence! Which we thought was very kind. Lovely accomodations. Be aware though.....we left the windows open the first few nights.....not realizing that there are mosquitoes in Italy in September.....and a couple of us had some nasty big welts from the mosquitoes.....but the apartment has air conditioning...so easily fixed and we kept the windows closed. Highly recommend this beautiful property which is so central to everything! Thank you Ms Lucia!

Charming apartment in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this apartment! It had so much character and a great location. It was less than a 5 minute walk to the hop-on/hop-off bus or you could walk to the major piazzas in about 20 minutes. Even better, it was far enough away from the tourist crowds so it was quiet and you could feel like a local. You could sit on the rooftop terrace with a glass of wine and gaze at the Duomo. Lucia was extremely helpful and accommodating, even offering to arrange a taxi for transport to the airport for our 6 AM flight. I would definitely book this apartment again when I return to Florence.
