This Florence rental is located right on the Piazza Santa Croce, a large piazza with the Santa Croce church at one end with many shops, restaurants, and old palazzo on either side. All of the major sites of Renaissance Florence are within a short walk, including the Piazza Signoria, the Uffizi Gallery and the Duomo. The Santa Maria Novella train station is a 15-minute walk, and the closest bus stop is right at the base of the piazza.

Nearby Attractions:The Santa Croce quarter is located on the southeastern part of the historic center of Florence. Since the Middle Ages, it was an area specializing in leather. In fact, today it is still filled with leather shops! The large Santa Croce Church, filled with famous frescoes and tombs of some of the city’s greats, is the main structure of the quarter. 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.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
Excellent - it was as described and very comfortable for six people.
Enjoyed Most:
Location and the size of the apartment.
Enjoyed Least:
I can't think of anything.
Surrounding Area:
Many things including museums, shopping and restaurants.
Tips or Restaurants:
Mosquito repellent would be a good thing to have on hand. There are so many restaurants to enjoy, but I will give special mention to Dino Ristorante (www.ristorantedino.it) which was absolutely fabulous and near the apartment.
Directions:
Taxi from airport went right to front door - no issue.
Check In Out:
Thank you for accommodating our Sunday evening arrival and the process was seamless.

Overall:
Very good.
Enjoyed Most:
Location in historic district in Florence. View from the apartment verlooking Santa Croce, and the Duomo.
Surrounding Area:
Easy walking to more local spots for eating, market, and tourist spots were no more than 15 minutes to about anything. The book the property manager left us had great restaurant and wine shop recommendations. The property manager was very helpful on any requests we had. (printing things, etc.)
Nearby Events or Locales:
Heart of Florence. Everything was walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
Make sure you have credit cards with chips for use in Europe. Also have your PIN handy as many kiosks (train station) require that in order to buy tickets electronically.
Directions:
Be clear that the entrance is off the piazza Santa Croce (south side). When using Google maps, it shows the building, but it's not clear on where entrance is located.
Check In Out:
Make sure you set your phone up for international dialing, and know how to dial the number for the property manager when you arrive. (You don't need the country code up front in Italy, but you might need the city code).

Overall:
We have rented wonderful apartments in London, Rome, Venice, New Zealand, and Australia. This was the best property overall - amenities, location, comfort, size, etc.
Enjoyed Most:
It was luxurious, but also comfortable and homey.
Enjoyed Least:
One of the bedrooms was on the plaza and a little bit louder at night but it didn't seem to disturb our twenty year old kids.
Surrounding Area:
Santa Croce Church, the piazza, the restaurants, the shops, and the fact that we could walk everywhere - the Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio, the Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi.
Nearby Events or Locales:
This property is centrally and ideally located in Firenze.
Tips or Restaurants:
The Conad grocery store nearby is a great place to purchase items to make use of the kitchen and gorgeous dining room. There is a great place on the corner for cappuccino/espresso, pastries and sandwiches. Other recommended restaurants are Le Fonticine, Gustavino and the restaurant next door.
Directions:
Directions were very clear.
Check In Out:
It was extremely easy and Francesca was incredibly welcoming and helpful.
