The apartment is located in Florence's historic city. "Oltrarno" means "beyond the Arno" and this area stretches along the south bank of the river. Oltrarno is the true essence of Florence: a quiet, green and therefore more relaxed than the other. For this reason many tourists appreciate it more and more. This area is also known as the district councils, famous for its fancy shops, small shops and artisans' studios (particularly furniture and leather): Via Maggio is the antiques center of Florence.

From rural center, in past centuries the Oltrarno became a chic neighborhood where many aristocrats built their palaces and villas. The biggest of these is undoubtedly the Pitti Palace was the residence of the Grand Duke of Tuscany. Nowadays the Pitti Palace hosts many exhibitions and museums, the most important of the city. Other major attractions are Oltrarno the Brancacci Chapel with its magnificent frescoes by Masaccio, Masolino and Filippino Lippi, the Piazzale Michelangelo with its breathtaking view of Florence, the magnificent church of San Miniato (one of the highest points of the city and the best example of Romanesque architecture in Tuscany) and the Ponte Vecchio, with its countless jewelers and goldsmiths. Inside Palazzo Pitti, the formal Boboli Gardens, an outdoor museum of sculptures, some dating back even to the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

Finally the Oltrarno is famous for the antiques market in Piazza Santo Spirito (served daily), its cafes and wine bars (Olio & Convivium, Bene Vobis, Caffè degli Artigiani...) And inns that offer dishes of Tuscan cuisine ( Holy Drinker, The 4 Leoni, Osteria del Cinghiale Bianco, The Warehouse...). Those who choose to live in this area will find a wide range of food shops, bakeries, bakers and more.

The apartment is located outside the ZTL (limited traffic zone) so easy to reach by car and easy parking.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the 3 nights we stayed at Leonardo's in Florence. Super convenient and easy to access by car but be sure to check parking regulations and park in an appropriate spot (we did not). The apartment was clean and comfortable and a comfortable walking distance (15-20 min) from central Florence. The fact that is on the other side of the river from the center made it especially nice to come home to each day as it allowed us to escape the mass crowds of tourists downtown. Lots to check out on this side of the river as well - had some great meals and a fun night at the Speakeasy down the street.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in Florence staying at Leonardo's apartment. The apartment is great, on the opposite side of the river to the city centre but it's just a 15 minute walk and you are in the heart of Florence. The apartment is immaculate and has everything you could need as well as a beautiful view. The location was great for us in a nice and quiet neighbourhood away from the noise of the city centre but with some great restaurants and bars near by. Check in was really straightforward and communication with Leonardo was very good, he was prompt to answer any questions. He was also kind enough to let us leave our luggage in the apartment on our check out day so we could have a final few hours sightseeing before having to leave for the airport. I would highly recommend staying here and we hope to return someday.
