About the property

"Minerva" is only 400 meters far from Ponte Vecchio: it's in an elegant and lovely position in Piazza Sauro n. 2, just next to Carraia bridge on Arno. A bright living room, two bedrooms on a quiet side despite a lot of life on the street; the bathroom has a very large shower and the kitchen is really fully equipped.

Gianni was very welcoming when we arrived. The apartment was located in a perfect location. Within walking distance to restaurants, gelato shops and grocery stores. The best part is that the Oltrarno gives you the real life everyday Italian feel. Will be renting this “gem” again very soon!

Great apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were very comfortable in this apartment which was very well located to everything in Florence. The street noise can get a bit loud in the evening from traffic but it was nice to be on the old town part of the city away from the hustle and bustle of the tourists. I would definitely recommend for a family!

Very clean very modern and adequately equipped Bright and highly recommended

  • 4 of 5

Clean modern and bright. In s perfect location easily accessed from airport or station. Only 10 to 15 minutes walk to all the major sites and in an area that is not excessively touristy. An ideal location for an early morning or evening stroll into the centre or back streets for cultural experience and food

Zentral, ruhig gelegene Ferienwohnung

  • 4 of 5

Wir verbrachten fünf angenehme Ferientage in Florenz. Die Wohnung ist sauber und liebevoll eingerichtet. Trotz der zentralen Lage ist es in der Wohnung ruhig. Gianni empfing uns herzlich und wäre wenn notwendig mit weiteren Infos zur Verfügung gestanden. Im Quartier kann man am Abend in verschiedenen Lokalen genussvoll essen.
