Location Description

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.

Overall:
I liked our apartment a lot. Plenty of space, lots of natural light, well-equipped kitchen. The location was great.
Enjoyed Most:
We had lots of room to spread out.
Enjoyed Least:
It was drafty, but with the high ceilings. I don't know how you'd avoid that.
Surrounding Area:
We were close to the Arno and great restaurants. The Santa Croce church was right outside our door.
Tips or Restaurants:
You don't need to bring anything; everything you need is already there.

Show All 5 Reviews

Overall:
It was much better than expected! The bedrooms were very comfortable and the bathrooms were completely modernized. Also, the building manager was always ready to help with any problems that arose.
Enjoyed Most:
The assistance from the building managers.
Enjoyed Least:
There was no real view from the property. It looked out into private gardens and terraces.
Surrounding Area:
Piazza Santa Croce is close to all of the major tourist attractions - about a 10 minute walk - and the train station about a 15-20 minute walk. The location was not loud or obnoxious. The bulk of the tourists are gone by 5pm.
Tips or Restaurants:
The property supplies the basic necessities. But bring extra plastic bags for groceries since they now charge for them. Definitely bring a water bottle because water in Florence is not cheap. Also, there is an English bookstore--the Paperback Exchange--selling used books meaning you can get one for 5 euros instead of 11 on the Via dell'Oche where you can also trade in your own paperback books for store credit. Our favorite restaurant was actually right next door-- Boccadama. It's good Italian food despite the tourists that linger.
