Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms apartment sleeps 4+1 in Central Florence, near Duomo, Santa Croce

Unusual, romantic apartment full of atmosphere in one of Florence's oldest areas - that once occupied by the Roman amphitheatre. Indeed, the street takes its name from one of the principal entrances into the arena. Just 50m from the church of Santa Croce Church, 200m from Piazza Signoria, 100m from Piazza del Duomo, 200m from the Uffizzi Gallery and Ponte Vecchio, and 10m from Vivoli, Florence's best known ice cream parlour!! The apartment, on the first floor of this antique palazzo, is accessed via a flight of 24 steps (no elevator). It offers 2 double bedrooms (one with a French bed - 140x200 cm ), which look onto the open plan sitting room area, a fully appointed kitchen, a marble dining table for 6. It is tastefully furnished with the owner's personal belongings and is equipped with a TV, DVD and CD player, stereo, WI-FI, dishwasher, washing-machine, air cond

Just walking through the central courtyard of this beautiful Palazzo is a journey to the heart of historic Florence. Centrally located, it is perfect for sight seeing, shopping and food markets, discovering cosy trattorie and bars, as well as artists' and artisans' ateliers.

Bellisima!

  • 5 of 5

Our best vacation in years! Our host, Fabrizio, picked us up at the airport and tucked us into our beautiful residence. The residence was as promised: unique, comfortable, well-appointed and welcoming. Fabrizio was informative, friendly and even assisted us in getting our luggage, which was on a later flight. He allowed us our privacy, but was available by email when we had questions or needed advice on local attractions. On 02 Jan, we headed out into the Italian countryside with Fabrizio as our guide. We toured Siena, had an excellent lunch and wine-tasting, and toured two other notable Florentine sites. My wife and I are still basking in the afterglow of what was a truly unique and soul-soothing experience. Save money and go with Fabrizio. You won't regret it.

Great location, with plenty of space

  • 5 of 5

Fabrizios place was such a treasure to find. It is definitely located within the city center, EVERYTHING is within 15 min walking distance at most. There were plenty of great shops, restaurants and gelaterias nearby. The 2 bedrooms was plenty big enough for 3 adults, the living room had a couch, which I think was recently added based from previous reviews. The kitchen has all that you needed to have some stay at home meals at times, but the cutting board might need a replacement, which is a minor detail in the overall review of this place. Thanks again.

Perfect owner and perfect position

  • 5 of 5

Fabrizio is a very pleasant person. He was still available for us when ever we needed.

We spent in Firenze one week in February 2018.

The aprtment is furbished with everything what you can need during your city holiday.

The location of the aparment is very good. You can walk to all places of interest in the city. Around a corner, there are perfect restaurants, caffeterias, shops with leather articles, etc.

We will rent this apartment again.

The property is perfectly located for visitors who want to discover the essence of Florence. Situated between Piazza della Signoria and Piazza Santa Croce, it is in the heart of Florence's historical centre. This area is full of local colour and is lively, even though the apartment is on a small quiet road. There are plenty of boutiques, bars and small, intimate restaurants in the area, as well as some of Florence's most noteworthy attractions
