Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this apartment. It had everything we needed. We went shopping for groceries at the store nearby, walked to the restaurants the owner gave us information about and to the majority of Florence attractions. We enjoyed the mix of the apartment design. The art pieces in the kitchen with iconic images of a Bialetti espresso maker and Vespa scooter added to the Italian atmosphere we experienced during our vacation.

Clean, roomy for family of 4, great views of old courtyards.

Car: not necessary

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.


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.
