Overview

About the property

PONTE VECCHIO Suite is a holiday apartment in Florence. It has been recently renovated and offers a comfortable stay in one of the most popular and living area and it is located 50 meters distance from Ponte Vecchio and few meters distance from Santo Spirito square and Pitti palace. The apartment is located on the second floor with elevator. PONTE VECCHIO Suite has a perfect location for who likes walking in the historical streets of Florence and discovering characterical places like restaurants, trattorie, enoteche. Central, comfortable, perfect for visiting Florence through short walks around the historic center of the city and, for those who love shopping, walking, visiting museums.

The Oltrarno – “Across the Arno” is the artisans' neighborhood, still packed with workshops where craftspeople hand-carve furniture and hand-stitch leather gloves. It began as a working-class neighborhood to catch the overflow from the expanding medieval city on the Arno's opposite bank, but it also became a rather chic area for aristocrats to build palaces on the edge of the countryside. The largest of these, the Pitti Palace, later became the home of the grand dukes and today houses a set of museums second only to the Uffizi. Behind it spreads the landscaped baroque fantasies of the Boboli Gardens, Florence's best park. Masaccio's frescoes in Santa Maria della Carmine here were some of the most influential of the early Renaissance.

Great Location, Great Flat, Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Location of the flat was great. Flat was spacious, clean, and was a nice base to explore Florence. Ilker was a great host and gave us a great orientation of the flat and the city. We also got a complementary bottle of wine and chocolate upon arrival! This flat is close to all the attractions Florence has to offer. 5 Stars!

Great location to stay when in Florence

  • 5 of 5

Ilker had a wonderful apartment within 10 minutes walking of any attraction in Florence. It is also an easy 15 minute walk from the train station. This apartment is in the heart of all shopping and restarants. Loved that Ilker spoke english and asked several times if we need anything. He also booked a taxi for us to the airport.

Booked this property for my daughter (21) and niece (21) when their were visiting my other daughter studying abroad in Florence. Property was perfect for their needs, comfortable, warm and close to everything. Ilker was a dream to work with and was very helpful and responsive. This was my first booking with HomeAway and it was a great experience. Thank you so much Ilker!

Since the beginning, the communication with Ilker was really smooth and efficient. He was answering all our queries even before we reserved the appartment. When we arrived there, Ilker was waiting for us in front of the building and his welcoming was really warm. He offered us a nice bottle of white wine and chocolates. He took the time to explain some details about Firenze and even gave us some ideas and tips. His appartment was clean and tidy. All amenities were available. The appartment is perfectly located near all museums, Ponte Vecchio and all other touristic main points. The ideal place!! During our stay, Ilker was available at all times to answer any enquiry. We had a really wonderful stay!

Excellent location and accomodating host

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is located in the heart of Florence, just steps from the Ponte Vecchio. Ilker was very easy to work with and went out of his way to be helpful. He has a variety of travel books and folders available for use. The air conditioning was a godsend and worked wonderfully as did the internet access. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen and bath small but well

set up.

This district is located to the south-east of the River Arno, with the Santo Spirito square and its beautiful church as the centre. The square was originally used by the Augustinian monks to give their sermons, to celebrate festivals and for all kinds of demonstrations. Nowadays it is home to the local market which is held every morning and with additional stalls for natural products and antiques on Sundays. In the summer months it also hosts a number of concerts and shows and is one of the liveliest squares in the district, with a very unique atmosphere of restaurants, different bars and a variety of night life. The square is also home to the Basilica of the same name, the work of Brunelleschi. Nearby is the Palazzo Guadagni (1505) which houses the Florence library on its ground floor. Further areas of interest include the Palazzo Pitti and the Boboli Gardens. The Palazzo Pitti is a remarkable renaissance building that was built by the Pitti family to rival the Medici family structure. Its interior is well worth a visit with some beautiful paintings including the works of Raffaello, Tiziano, Correggio, Rubens and Pietro da Cortona. Close at hand visitors can take a stroll through the Boboli gardens that were created as a park for the Pitti Palace, and are one of the greatest examples of Italian-style gardens, considered by many as an open-air museum. It is also an opportunity to visit one of the most surprising and strangest examples of Florentine architecture the Grotta Grande. To the west of the city, the Torquato Tasso square and the Carmine Church, is the famous location of one of the most famous renaissance works of art, the Capilla Brancacci, that was decorated by Masaccio and Masolino. Today the district of Isolotto is one of the greenest areas in Florence. It is a particularly young part of the city, especially in the west where its rural centre later grew into an industrial then a residential area. It boasts more modern architecture than the rest of the city and includes the new Florentine tram that leads directly to the city centre. A number of shopping centres are located in the area that is served by a very good public transport communication to the rest of the city
