HISTORICAL NOTE: Air Conditioning in Old Town

If you didn't live in an old town maybe you don't know: thanks to the antique building methods, walls are thick and massive; this maintains the indoor temperature fresh, spontaneously, even in the hottest days of the summer. Around midday air can be refreshed furtherly with the fan, while in the night very fresh relaxing air comes from outdoor through our wooden "persiane" (antique shelter for the windows, with a unique shape; it's a traditional method of indoor air conditioning, coming from past centuries); so that you'll feel comfortable always, without needing to close the windows and turn on an electrical air conditioner.


TIP: Long Stays in Florence

Florence is a good base to live for a couple of weeks and more, exploring Tuscany and Italy with one day trips as a local resident does.

This is because of the following facts:

1) The location of Florence is strategically placed in the center of the main point of interests which go from Rome to the Alps.

2) Regional railways are quite efficient here, and they let you arrive from the Firenze SMN Station to all the big cities and almost all the famous small towns of Tuscany in a short time. For example: Pisa 1 hour, Lucca 1h20min, Siena 1h30min.

3) National high speed trains - so comfortable! - connect Florence and the major cities of Italy in a flash. For example Bologna 40min, Rome 1h30min, Milan 1h45min, Venice 2h. And their price starts from 9 euro for any destination, if you book in advance.

Long stays in Florence have also another advantage: they make you feel the Florentine atmosphere in the most complete way, with all the shapes and shades that different days offer.

About my apartment, Natural Home: it is located in a quiet district of the historical centre, and the Firenze SMN Railway Station is in the centre too (in a busier district). This means that you can catch the trains to any Tuscan and Italian destination with only a nice short walk across the central pedestrian area - I usually do it in around 15-20 min.
