From the house you can reach by foot all the important place of the city centre of Florence (Boboli garden, Pitti Palace, Ponte Vecchio are all within ten minutes walking from the apartment). If you don't want to go walking to the town, the bus stop is at only 50m from the house, the bus will carry you in the Florence's medieval town in 3'. The most elegant shopping streets in Florence, with stores selling antiques, jewelry, leather, linen, groceries, pastries, Gucci, Pucci, Ferragamo, Valentino, Prada, Armani, Ermenegildo Zegna, Buccellati, Frette, etc., are all within easy walking distance (so are many wonderful shops that aren't world famous yet).

"Accueillant, et sympathique. Situé à 10 minutes à pieds du Ponte-Vecchio.

Agréable en ce qui concerne la chambre et la cuisine côté jardin. Attention à la chambre et au salon situé côté route pour la personne ayant le sommeil léger. Pratique la machine à laver le linge dans l''appartement, ainsi que le fer à repasser à disposition.

Owner's Response: "On the 07th of July 2012 we changed all the windows on the road side (the window of one bedroom and the window of the living room). The width of these new windows are 82 mm and the glasses are "double acoustic glasses". The width of the glasses are 30 mm. These new windows are certified to cute down 42 Decibel of noise, so now there isnt any problem about the traffic noise in the apartment from July 2012!!" "Le 7 Juillet 2012, nous avons remplacé toutes les fenêtres qui donnent sur la rue (une des chambres et la salle de séjour) L'épaisseur des nouvelles fenêtres est de 30 mm et nous avons monté un double vitrage acoustique, certifiée pour réduire la perception du bruit de 42 décibels. Dès cet été vous n'aurait pas problèmes causés par les son de la circulation!"

"El apto es tal cual lo muestran las fotos del anuncio y contiene todo lo ofrecido. La atención de los dueños es excelente.No es muy cerca del centro, pero hay una parada de autobus muy cerca, tambien un supermercado. El apartamento es muy limpio y con todos los detalles que sepuedan necesitar. Creo que ante la ausencia de calls center en los alrededores, deberían ofrecer servicio de internet, por tanto recomiendo a los usuarios tener celular.

Enrico Berni muy amable."

BY CAR: you have to take the A1 Motorway (Milano-Roma) and goes ALWAYS in direction of Rome. If you'll go always in direction of Rome you'll find the "Firenze Impruneta" exit.

Here is the detailed istruction from the A1 "Firenze Impruneta" motorway exit:

At the round-about, follow toward the centre of Florence (take the third road at the round-about). Stay on this road for about 3 Kms, at the "Due Strade" Trafic Light turn on the right (you can't go strait because the road is only for the bus). Go strait for 1 kms and turn on the left at the trafic light. Go strait in the "Viale del Poggio Imperiale" for 600 mts. When you reach "Porta Romana" take the second road at the round-about and take the "Viale Petrarca". Go strait for about 1,5 Km and you'll find the house on the left. Viale Aleardi 8.


From the station of Florence to reach "Viale Aleardo Aleardi, nr. 8" you have to take the bus nr. 12. You'll find the Bus stop outside the station (take the station exit on the left if you look the pharmacy in the station) in front of the "Firenze Fiera" palace. The bus stop for Viale aleardi is called "Burchiello" stop. THere is a bus every half an hour.

BY TAXI (recomended if you'll arrive at the Florence Station or Florence Airport):

At the exit of the rail station (the exit on your right if you are looking the trains)or of the Florence airport there is the taxi stop. Say to the driver "Viale Aleardo Aleardi, nr. 8" and in 10 minutes you'll reach the apartment.
