About The Experience

Searching for a room with a view? Look out over the red-tiled rooftops of Florence from the balcony of our spacious and charming accommodation in Florence, just across the river Arno from the Uffizi Gallery. Walk across one of the beautiful bridges to access the historical center of Florence, or go south to explore the characteristic neighborhoods of local Florence, filled with excellent restaurants and cafes.

Location Description

The palazzo housing this Florence apartment is situated on the south side of the Arno River in the Oltrarno district of Florence. On one side, the accommodation in Florence overlooks the Arno and the Uffizi Gallery, and on the other side, the via de'Bardi. In the neighborhood you'll find food shops, clothing stores, and restaurants.

Nearby Attractions: The Otrarno is the area of Florence that is south of the Arno River. While it contains some of the most famous and characteristic Renaissance buildings, it is also a quarter known for authentic flavor. Here you will find the Santo Spirito Church designed by Brunelleschi, the Santa Maria del Carmine Church with its famous Brancacci Chapel containing Masaccio’s exquisite frescoes, and the Palazzo Pitti. There are magnificent views of Florence from the Forte Belvedere and Piazzale Michelangelo, a prime destination for a gelato or glass of wine while watching the sunset. For those who like quirky, a visit to La Specola Museum, with wax anatomical models from the 18th century, is sure to fascinate. In addition to all of this, the quarter has many fine restaurants and shops, as well as an open-air market in the Piazza Santo Spirito.

Exterior Description

This palazzo dates back to the 15th century, when the banks of the Arno River were flanked by palazzi (palaces) belonging to patrician families such as the Bardis. The edifice was modified over the centuries until the mid-19th century, when a famous architect, Enrico Poggi, endeavored to transform Florence into a capital city. He modeled the palazzo after the Lungarno Torrigiani area in order to maintain the classical renaissance color palette of cream plaster and gray “pietra serena” stone, which is visible in so many buildings throughout the city. A daytime doorman is available and each apartment is made secure with a bell and a buzzer.

Interior Description

(41 m2/441 ft2 + 18 m2/193 ft2 Terrace)
