About The Experience

Located in a 1950’s palazzo, this apartment rental in Florence is elegant, comfortable, and very lovely. This self-catering accommodation is situated at the entrance of Florence’s historical city center and is within walking distance of some of the city’s most popular attractions, such as the Piazza Santa Croce, and is perfect for a family of four. It’s nice to note as well, that although you’re close to the city’s center, you’ll enjoy a sense of solitude here when you’re on your private terrace!

Location Description

The apartment is located near the Piazza Beccaria and is near shops, restaurants, and markets. The nearest bus stop is 100 meters away (line 6) and this can take you further into the city’s center so you can see all of the amazing sites. Be sure to check out the Uffizi Gallery, which houses the works of Michelango, Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli, and many more! The Ponte Vecchio and the Santa Maria del Fiore Duomo are also not to be missed.

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:
We had a comfortable and relaxing stay.
Enjoyed Most:
The location close to buses, restaurants, and grocery store. It was spacious and well furnished. It was lovely to come home and relax on the patio. The owner was very attentive to our needs. The check in went very smoothly.
Enjoyed Least:
The showers!! One was very small and the other was missing a shower curtain
Surrounding Area:
Nothing special. It was a quiet, typical Florence suburb.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The centre of Florence was a a bit of a hike. Possible but not recommended for seniors on a hot day. Take the bus!!
Tips or Restaurants:
Check out the nearby entertainment and shopping district Borgo la Croce.
Directions:
No problem; we took a taxi from the airport.
Check In Out:
Very responsive and hassle-free.

Overall:
We had a wonderful time in this home. We felt safe and everything we needed was within walking distance. Bus, groceries, restaurants etc.
Enjoyed Most:
The overall feeling of living in an Italian residence in the suburbs. It had a washing machine and outdoor drying space.
Enjoyed Least:
The one bathroom was quite narrow. The refrigerator freezer was dirty. Cleaned and empty would have been more welcoming.
Surrounding Area:
Restful backyard and see note above.
Nearby Events or Locales:
You could walk to the center of Florence but as seniors we always took a bus. Especially in the heat of June.
Tips or Restaurants:
It was very well-equipped. The dishwasher and laundry soap was much appreciated as we were only there for a week. Bring your own face cloth if you use one.
Directions:
We went by taxi from the airport and it was about 27 Euros.
Check In Out:
It was all done smoothly and the owner was very personable and on time which was important to us.
