The Santa Maria Novella train station is a 15-minute walk, and the closest bus stop is right at the base of the piazza.

The piazza in front of the church is filled day and night with tourists and locals. Some of the best gelato shops and restaurants can be found in this neighborhood. Piazza dei Ciompi has a daily flea market as well as a large monthly market (last Sunday). Plaz, located across from the 16th century Loggia del Pesce is a fun and casual place to stop for a drink and live music.

Overall the property was very good. We had an enjoyable time and the management was friendly helpful and cheerful. In addition they provided many small extras not normally included such as some cleaning materials, etc.
Enjoyed Most:
Location and comfort.
Enjoyed Least:
Second bedroom had basically a crack for a window and the terrace was behind the building with a view of other roofs set below them so there was NO view. This was a private and peaceful spot though and we did enjoy many moments there.
Surrounding Area:
Easy access to sites as well as transportation.
Nearby Events or Locales:
We were in the heart of Florence. Everything was within walking distance

Amy, September

Apartment was terrific - great location - extremely well maintained. The people managing it were wonderful. We really, really liked it. It was a home away from home. The washer and dryer actually worked!! Great attention to details. The little kitchen was adorable.
