The flat has been my family home since 1969. It is located in the heart of Florence on the 3rd floor (US 4th) of a historical palace of the 19th Century which was built during the transformations when Florence was capital of Italy (1865-70).
The location is unbeatable, in the middle of all sights and action and and at the same time a very quiet flat. The street door is on vibrant via Roma, but the flat is on the backside of the building. The step free Elevator is there for luggage, groceries, and those needing help after long sightseeing. Completely on one level, from the balcony you will admire the beauty of Renaissance while sipping a glass of Chianti.
All major sights are around the corner: Baptistery, Duomo and Cupola, the newly re-opened Museo dell'Opera del Duomo. Michelangelo's masterpieces in Galleria dell'Accademia and Medici Chapels are 5 minutes away. Uffizi Gallery and Palazzo Vecchio are a 3 minutes' walk. Continuing on Via Roma towards the river, the Old Bridge, Pitti Palace and Boboli Garden. The fabulous Santa Croce and Cappella dei Pazzi are 15 minutes away.
Next door to the historic Caffè Gilli and the 5-star Hotel Savoy. Surrounded by boutiques like Gucci, Prada, Emporio Armani. Right at the heart of all city celebrations, processions, flagwavers, parades, best Christmas decorations and the oxen cart on Easter Sunday.
The flat is bright, with double height ceilings, large windows and wooden shutters. AIR CONDITIONED. 2 separate bedrooms. A larger than a queen bed in the master bedroom, two comfy twins that can be made up as a queen bed in the second bedroom. Spacious living room with a pullout sofa. The bathroom is comfortable with a large shower cabin with marble floor and a small window for fresh air.
