About the property

2 bedrooms, living room, bathroom with shower, full kitchen, terrace with view.

The apartment Montebello is located on the fifth floor with lift until the fourth floor than there are 2o steps to reach the apartment. It consists of a large living room, one double room, one single room, a spacious bathroom with shower and a fully furnished kitchen. TV, WiFI, air conditioning, dish washer and washing machine are provided.

Few steps leads you to beautiful terrace from where you can admire a gorgeous view of 360° on the city and hills around Florence.

Apartment “Montebello” is located in the hearth of Florence and it is located one of the most silent and peaceful city-centre streets, Via Montebello. The apartment's neighborhood was called “Ognissanti” thanks to the presence of the florentine-baroque Church “Ognissanti”. From 1865 to 1871 Florence was the capital of the recently enstablished Kingdom of Italy, so that many palaces in the Ognissanti neighborhood (including that of Montebello Apartment) were built in order to host the members of the Government and their families. The area is plenty of typical italian craftsmen's bottegas, medieval churches, osterias, trattorias and outstanding italian restaurants. The famous Lungarni are just around the corner and the Duomo is just a five minutes walk from Montebello Apartment, Palazzo Vecchio – 10 minutes, Ponte Vecchio – 7 minutes, Palazzo Pitti – 15 minutes and the Uffizzi Museum – 8 minutes, Santa Maria Novella station- 5 minutes.

Just next to the apartment's palace is situated the bus stop of the Florence Site-seeing red buses and others. Nearby the Montebello street there are two supermarkets, some bakeries and delicious pastry shops.

Exceeded Our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Based on the pictures and reviews on HomeAway, we expected this to be a very nice apartment. We were pleasantly surprised to find that it exceeded our expectations. The location is exactly what we were looking for - quiet street but close to everything we wanted to see. The apartment itself is very well laid out, and the bathroom and kitchen are very modern. We spent every late afternoon up on the terrace - it is amazing. My friends at home can't believe my pictures taken from it. Lucia is a gracious and helpful hostess.

Great Apartment, Nice Location

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our time in Florence, and Lucia's apartment was one of the reasons our stay was so pleasant. Location is nice and convenient for the center of Florence and near to many great trattorias. Apartment is nicely furnished and has clean, modern appliances. And the hidden jewel is the rooftop terrace, with its great views of the city and especially the Duomo!

Wonderful, but . . .

  • 4 of 5

Pros: spacious, clean, comfortable. Good location close to many major sights. Amazing views from rooftop terrace. Friendly, efficient and helpful owner.

Con (only one): the adjoining apartment was occupied by a group of very noisy (American) students and the walls are thin. We were at the mercy of their schedules which consisted of very late nights when we were tired and would have liked to go to sleep before 2 am.

The owner was going to speak to the landlord -so this might not be an ongoing issue. But ask.

Owner's Response: Hello! Yes, I spoke to the owner of the apartment wich is near our and he told me he was sorry and he was going to talk to the student immediately. I am sorry for the inconvenient. Lucia

Great view of the city from Lucia place!

  • 5 of 5

The view from the crows-nest patio is awesome! Every morning we watched the sun rise over the Duomo. At night, we watched the sunset over the snow-capped mountains while the moon would rise over the Duomo. Lots of coffee shops and restaurants in the neighborhood too. We love the Culinaria Bistrot at Piazza Torquato Tasso 13 Red

The apartment is located in the neighborhood of Santa Maria Novella, the one where the central train station is. You can have some rest from the trip sitting in Piazza Santa Maria Novella, then visit the basilica and walk a bit along the characteristic streets nearby. If you walk up to via della Scala take a look to the historical pharmacy, the oldest in Europe. The Pharmacy of Santa Maria Novella is not an ordinary pharmacy: enter here will be like entering a museum.

If you like walking around you should visit the maghificence of the Ognissanti Church, at only two minutes form the apartment.

You can see the Last Supper made by Domenico Ghirlandaio and the Crucifix by Giotto. Many handcrafts shops, restaurants, typical trattorias offers you a big opportunity to choose what you like more.
