Amazing location, authentic, and very cozy.

  • 5 of 5

First, the entrance to the building lobby is beautiful with a wide entrance and very tall ceilings. There is so much character inside the building which adds to the experience before even seeing the apartment.

Antonia is the sweetest and provides a lot of helpful and exciting information when arriving from exhausting travel. It was a very warm welcome filled with coffee and smiles.

The apartment was spacious and had plenty of of room for two couples. We cooked some nice meals with food from a nice grocery store Antonia recommended. We did not spend much time in the apartment as our group explored as much of Florence and Tuscany as we had time. It was definitely accommodating and provided us with everything we needed to recharge each night. The location is priceless as you are in the heart of Florence. I read a prior review about noise which is absolutely false. This place couldn't be more centrally located yet so tucked into a nice quiet road/alley.

I would stay at this apartment if and when I come back to Florence and I wish I had more time to chat with Antonia.

Beautiful apartment in historic building

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment in a great area of Florence. Apartment was spacious and exceeded our expectations with the exception of the shower which is very small... but it is Europe so to be expected. Otherwise apartment had a lot of character and was a lot of fun to stay in.

Beautiful Apartment with character

  • 3 of 5

We agree with all the reviews: Beautiful, grand, historic building. Spacious apartment with all the character you expect from Italy. Great location. Walking distance to everything. Antonia is a gracious hostess. She is responsive and helpful. We really appreciate her helping us to get a taxi to the airport at 4am when leaving town. Only downfall is the noise from the bar next door. If you are a light sleeper this is not the place for you. The noise level is high.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Antonia's apartment. She greeted us on Easter morning with many great ideas on places to eat and visit. The apartment was amazing in location and grandeur and my favorite part of the apartment was the gigantic window overlooking the small street with glimpses of the historic areas that were all around us within 1-2 blocks. We were in many cities during our stay and by far, this apartment was our favorite. The many stairs were just a way to get us into shape for the many, many miles of walking the city we did.

Thank you Antonia

Historic and spacious apartment in the heart of Florence

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was roomy and the building is incredibly historic - you really experience the history of this great city here.

Host was fantastic! Communicated often and well in English. She greeted us personally upon arrival and offered us lots of info and tips for our travels.

The building is well located, a few minutes walk to everything we wanted to see and very close to the Duomo. Being so central, the apartment was a bit noisy during the evening as there's a bar close by.

Lots of facilities; fridge and complete kitchen, laundry, living room.

FANTASTIC

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Florence was fantastic. The apartment is 3 minutes away from the Duomo, clean, big and perfect for small groups.

Antonia was the perfect host! She's really kind and she was always available. Thank you so much for the library and Il Santino, the best advices ever! We highly recommend this apartment.

Thank you for everything Antonia!

Car: not necessary

The flat is 15 minutes on foot from the main train station (Santa Maria Novella) where trains from and to Pisa Airports arrive and leave. Nearby is also located the terminal of shuttle to and from Florence Airport. Several buses, either traditional or electric minibuses, starting from Santa Maria Novella Station will land you very close to the flat.

FARES:

Train from/to Pisa Airport (one hour):€5,60

Bus from/to Pisa Airport( Terra Vision every 30 minutes): €10,00/round-trip ticket €16,00

Shuttle from/to Florence Airport (from 20 to 40 minutes depending on the traffic): €4,50

City Public Transport: €1,20/70 minutes

BY CAR:

We are located in the ZTL (Limited Traffic Area) where private cars are not allowed from 7.00 a.m. to 8,00 p.m. on week days (Sundays are free). Private garages in front of appartament within the ZTL offer parking facilities, and special permission, the price is €25/30 every day.

The parking “Parcheggio Piazza Beccaria” is just 250 meters from the flat (fares: hour 1,5 ), Parcheggio Piazza Alberti”, Juts 500 meters from the flat ( daily rate €20, weekly rate €70). Farther and cheaper is Parcheggio Scambiatore Viale Europa (fare: 1,5 € 12 hours), close to the exit Firenze Sud of the Milan-Bologna-Florence-Rome Motorway called Autostrada del Sole. From there you reach the center of town and our flat with a 3,5 Kms ride on bus number 23.

It’s hard to choose among the many cultural or leisure activities available in Florence, and the numberless charming places you’ll be able to discover staying in our flat right in the middle of this city, that is a work of art in itself, included in the UNESCO World Heritage. You’ll be not just among monuments, churches, palaces, but also cinemas and theaters, discos, pubs, and - last but not least - close to several very good Tuscan traditional, ethnic or haute cuisine restaurants.

Allow us just to suggest a visit to the nearby Biblioteca delle Oblate (Via dell’Oriuolo 26, from Monday to Friday 8.30 – 18.30, Saturday 8.30 – 13.30, tel. + 39 055261652) the largest City Public Library recently opened in a former convent of wonderful architectural structure, from which you will also able to enjoy one of the finest views over the city. It has Internet Points, Reading Rooms, a section for International Press, and Children Spaces.
