Overview

About the property

The apartment is in the heart of Florence, at the first floor of a tipical Florentine house built in 1200. The windows overlook a secondary street of the main Via Calzaiuoli, so quiet is associated with the confort of having restaurants, caffes, shops short way away from the apartment. The apartment building is immersed in the art; few minutes from the apartment there are the magnificent Dome and the nearby Campanile designed by Giotto ,the Baptistery, Piazza della Signoria, Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery, Santa Maria Novella Church, San Lorenzo Basilica with its distinctive open-air market, Piazzale Michelangelo from which by night there is a moving view of Florence .

It is possibile to associate culture with fun and shopping: the elegant Via Tornabuoni is reached in few minutes, likewise Piazza Santa Croce surrounded by pubs, discos, restaurants, pizzerias, theatres.

At S.M. Novella Station, which is 10 minutes by foot from the apartment, is possibile to rent bicicles that could be a fun meanx of transport to move around Florence streets and alleys. Moreover many coaches leave from the Station to Siena, San Gimignano, Arezzo, Pisa for a pleasant trip outside the town.

Simple flat in the perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is a very clean, simple 2 bedroom apartment with wifi. Each bedroom has 2 twin beds and a small closet. There is no central AC but the windows opens fully allowing fresh air in. Fans are provided though. It can get slightly noisy at night, simply because you are in the center of all the attractions, so if you are a light sleeper, this is something to consider, but we loved the hustle and bustle sounds! There is 1 simple, small bathroom with a very small shower, but it was sufficient for us (just something to consider if you are a larger person). The flat is on the first floor with no elevator, but the walk upstairs is not difficult at all. It is a nice wide staircase so hauling luggage is no problem. The location is the best part of this flat. It is right in the center and just a few steps from the Duomo and the piazzas. You are literally in the heart of all the tourist attractions. It is very conveniently located. The host, Angela and her husband, were just amazing. Communicating was very easy and Angela responds very quickly. She will explain the city attractions and suggest places to eat. She was very helpful and friendly. This place was perfect for our family of 4 and we would definitely book again!

Perfect for me.

  • 5 of 5

The loveliest of people take care of this place, greeting the tired arrivee as if he were family, pointing out all the locations on a map for things to see, places to eat, economical shopping, and so forth. The apartment is clean and inviting and is incredibly well located. You're five minutes walk from most things, ten minutes walk from nearly everything else. And there was a coffee maker already there. There's good food nearby, the Duomo is around the corner, the Bargello is 3 minutes south, the Uffizi 5 minutes south, the Academia five minutes north. Good heavens: the apartment is at the hub of a tourist's wagon wheel. Everything works (shower, washing machine, stove, etc).

Fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a prime location - nestled in an side street just a few steps away from the Duomo. Within short walking distance to the city center and all of the main attractions, but far away enough that it's not terribly loud due to the crowds. Angela (the owner) was lovely, and she met us at the apartment to check us in and make sure we had all that we needed. We would definitely stay here again!

Just what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

This property has all the standard amenities but is very basic. However, it deserves a five star rating because the location cannot be beat AND it is affordable. I have long since given up on upscale flats because I don't spend much time there. However, this flat is so close to everything it was easy to return for a mid-day rest. The check-in was exceptionally easy, though do not try to locate this flat by the photo provided. It is near this Piazza but down the street.

Car: not necessary

The apartment is 15 minutes by taxi or by bus from the A. Vespucci airport, while for who lands at G.Galilei airport there are many coaches to Florence centre, otherwise the train which lives from Pisa airport and arrives directly to SM.Novella station is a good and comfortable choice.

For who arrives by car: since the apartment is in the Limited Trafic Area accessile to residents only, the car has to be parked in one of the numerous centre garages or in the Parterre Parking (18€ per 24h): this parking is 4 bus stops from the Dome (Buses number 1, 7, 17) or 15 minutes by foot from the apartment.

I recommend you to book on-line your visit at Uffizi Gallery if you decide to live this amazing experience among the most famous painting in the world.

In the apartment you’ll find a monthly guide with every events in Florence and in the nearby districts, the guide to Florence restaurants, pubs, discos, every usefull telephone numbers in order to make easy your holiday in the “cradle of the Renaissance”.
