About The Experience

Located in the characteristic San Niccolo section of Florence in a 19th century palace, this apartment features antique-style architecture, sophisticated furnishings, and an elegant, yet welcoming environment. Just a short stroll away from this vacation rental in Florence is the Ponte Vecchio and Pitti Palace making the location absolutely wonderful! This is truly a place where you can come home to after a busy day of sightseeing and relax.

Location Description

This property is located in the full-of-character San Niccolo quarter and is within walking distance of traditional Florentine craft shops. Short strolls away from the building will show you great views of the historical monuments in the area. Just a short walk away is the city center where you can visit the Palazzo Vecchio, Santa Croce, and the Uffizi Gallery as well as the Pitti Palace. There are also plenty of shops, restaurants, and markets nearby.

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.

Customer Reviews

We had a marvelous stay. Daniela was most helpful and always available when needed.
Enjoyed Most:
We had an on-the-roof balcony which overlooked the Arno. So fun.
Enjoyed Least:
Stairs getting up to apartment
Surrounding Area:
Eating and watching people in the district directly behind the apartment.
Nearby Events or Locales:
We were in Florence and didn't venture to any other towns while there. No need to --- we had busy days to see everything.
Tips or Restaurants:
Daniela directed us to a nearby grocery for wine, fruit and snacks. Otherwise we had everything we needed.
Directions were fine. We used a taxi from the train depot and I just gave him the address
Check In Out:
Check in and out were easy.

The location was perfect for us away from the heart and very busy part of Florence, but perhaps not so good for first-time visitors who might want to be in the historic center.
Enjoyed Most:
The roof top view of the city and river.
Enjoyed Least:
The lack of windows and natural light.
Surrounding Area:
Lots of little restaurants, with "Zeb" being a great find on Yelp.
Tips or Restaurants:
Good for a couple with children as the other bedrooms were small and not appropriate to share with another couple.
It was an easy taxi ride from the train station but a bit of a long walk with luggage.
Check In Out:
No issues, as they were very gracious and helpful

We loved our stay at this property! The entire process and stay was virtually effortless, and the apartment felt like home away from home. We are very pleased we chose Palazzo dell'Arno - Citrine for our time in Florence.
Enjoyed Most:
The view was absolutely incredible, which means the location was ideal. Easy walking distance to all the major sites, even the train station wasn't too far (without luggage). But in a neighborhood away from the touristy hustle and bustle, which was a bonus.
Enjoyed Least:
The small, windowless extra bedrooms without windows. Realize this was a trade-off for the rooftop view, but felt like little cells - our kids adapted, however. And there is a fold-out double bed in the living area, which could have been used.
Surrounding Area:
We loved the neighborhood, with the walking/biking trail along the river across the street, and lots of little shops and ristorantes within a 10-15 minute walk. Plus the Ponte Vecchio was just down the road, as was the Pitti Palace.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Florence proper was just across the bridge, easily a 5-minute walk.
Tips or Restaurants:
The apartment had virtually everything, including shampoo and shower soap/gel and a full array of kitchen utensils and small appliances, even a dishwasher + electric tea kettle + coffee machine. We ended up not needing the few supplies we brought. We didn't have a bad restaurant experience the entire week.
We just took a taxi, and the address was enough.
Check In Out:
There is a hotel-like front desk in the lobby, and the friendly staff was extra helpful during both check-in and check-out. The check-in clerk took us to the room, helped with bags, and showed us the entire apartment, including climate controls and how the lights worked. Very convenient and worry free.
