- About The Experience
Ideal for a vacation with family or friends, this apartment rental in Florence is just a moment away from all of the most important monuments. The apartment blends 17th century splendor with a superb central location. It has been recently upgraded. The apartment itself is done in traditional Florentine style but features such modern conveniences such as air conditioning and free high speed Internet access. One can walk to the local markets and restaurants as well as all of the major highlights of Florence.
- Location Description
The apartment rental is located in a prestigious 17th century palazzo near the Arno River and abuts a narrow, less traveled side street. It is in the heart of Florence and is just 600 meters away from the Duomo. The building is located in the old city center of Florence, where all the major attractions are located. The romantic Ponte Vecchio, designer shops, art galleries and museums are all within 1 km (.62 mi).
Nearby Attractions: The area around the Basilica di Santa Maria dei Fiore, commonly referred to as The “Duomo,” is considered the historic center of the city. From here it is possible to walk north to the San Lorenzo Church, the San Lorenzo outdoor market (where you can find all manner of clothing, shoes and bags,) as well as the not-to-be-missed Mercado Centrale, with its mouthwatering displays of food items. West and north is the train station and the Santa Maris Novella Church. While in this area, it is worthwhile to visit the Officina di Santa Maria Novella… the potpourri perfume will guide you. To the south are the Piazza della Signoria, the political center of Renaissance, the Uffizi Gallery, the Orsanmichele Church, the Casa di Dante, the Badia Fiorentina, and the Ponte Vecchio. Along the way are shops galore! One very interesting place is visit that is southwest of the Duomo, is the Palazzo Davanzati, a beautiful home with period furnishings, originally built in the 14th century. After years of renovation, it is finally open!

Peace and Quiet
We loved this property and the location was perfect to go out the door and explore Florence. The area is noisy with the restaurant on the street but it is a fun active central location.
The property was well equipped for all we needed, the rooms are very good size, the kitchen cute and charming.
The outside area was really a courtyard in the center of the apt with all the upper floors looking down on you. We did not use it.
The area is amazing you can walk to everything, the museums, the Duomo. We had people 75 to 25 and everyone loved it!
Nearby Events or Locales:

We loved our stay at the Arnolfo! Plenty of room for our family of 5 and the family room and dining areas were great. We were so thankful for the air conditioning as the temps were in the high 90's during our stay!
Location was terrific and the size of the apartment and bedrooms were terrific for our family of 5.
Loved how easy it was to walk to all of the tourist attractions in Florence. Terrific, central location and was very easy to take day trips on the train to Pisa and Siena with the train station so close by.
