About The Experience

Unique, rustic, elegant: this Florence apartment is the place for you! Near the "artist's piazza" of Santo Spirito, you'll enjoy being able to explore all the major sights by day or coming home at night to enjoy the 15th century frescoes on the walls of your own Florence accommodation.

Location Description

The Florence apartment building is located in the Santo Spirito neighborhood in the Oltrarno district, only 100 meters from the Arno River. The apartment is 4 blocks west of the Ponte Vecchio and near the Piazza Santo Spirito, which is characterized by a large number of traditional Italian craft shops and artist studios. There are many shops and restaurants nearby.

Nearby Attractions: The Oltrarno 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

Overall:
Worth the extra cost for being CENTRAL. Very comfortable . Don't expect to do your wash though . very slow machine, but doable ,
Enjoyed Most:
Fantastic location. Very clean and organized. Always someone to turn to if you might have needed them. We didn't.
Enjoyed Least:
On a very busy street but I think that's what all the streets in downtown Florence are like.
Surrounding Area:
Able to walk to all the places we wanted to go to . Museum , Ponte Vecchio, etc. Close to locals, too. Nice neighbourhood.
Tips or Restaurants:
Had almost everything in the apartment, except a chopping board. Ate at a fabulous place near the Ponte Vecchio on our side, called the Golden View Open Bar. Live jazz and great food and service. Had my birthday dinner there!
Directions:
Very easy to find.
Check In Out:
We felt a bit rushed when we were leaving. I think the girl was training a young man how to do it.

Enjoyed Most:
Beautiful space- nicely designed. Location fantastic. Very comfortable bed master bedroom. Clean. Everything that we needed was there - kitchen stuff, dishes, great linens etc. Adequate lighting. Air conditioner on the 1st floor only. One important thing there is a beautiful large and comfortable master bedroom AND 2 sleeper couches which are slightly larger than a twin but you have sleeping capacity for 2 adults and 2-3 kids.
Enjoyed Least:
Very noisy- but most of Florence is. Not having an air conditioner on the 2nd level of the apt. it was very hot in Florence when we were there so we needed it There isn't a view but we were always out, so it didn't matter.
Surrounding Area:
The location is great! Close to everything and the neighborhood is charming - has great restaurants, music at night in Santo Spirito, interesting shops. Food stores. Whatever you need is close by. The Arno is a block away so it's easy to get anywhere.
Tips or Restaurants:
I brought extra towels and sheets but you don't need any of that. You suggested a flashlight, cutting board- but didn't need that. Almost everything is there. they even had shampoo and soap- travel sizes. There isn't an oven - only a microwave. And a stove of course. Kitchen is very tiny. We made some simple dinners- pasta and salad. We did do zucchini flowers one night and learned that simple is better.
