The apartment (50 sq. mt / 540 sq. ft) can accommodate up to 2 people and has one bedroom, one bathroom and living room with kitchen. It is elegantly decorated with typical Tuscan finishes, light wooden floors and ancient stone inserts on the wall. The living room has a sofa and a book case that separate the living room from the fully equipped kitchen and from the dining room. In the bedroom, you will find a double bed, surrounded by a spacious wardrobe that you can use as a book case as well. The apartment has also a small but very useful utility room where you can store your luggages.
The apartment is located on the first floor of a building in Via Sguazza, a quiet little street in the Oltrarno area, near the Pitti Palace, Ponte Vecchio and the beautiful Boboli's Gardens. The apartment is right in the heart of Florence's historical city center where you will find all the main monuments and discover the city's traditional restaurants, trattorias, and cafes.
The apartment is located in the Oltrarno district in Florence’s historic city centre. The name “Oltrarno” literally means “beyond the Arno” and this neighborhood which stretches along the south bank of the river represents a different facet of Florence than that of the area near the Duomo. The Oltrarno perhaps displays the true character of Florence and in general is slightly quieter, greener, and more relaxed than the other districts of Florence. Indeed many tourists tend to choose the Oltrarno for this reason. Traditionally an artisans’ quarter, the Oltrarno still boasts today many lovely antique shops and artisans’ studios. Via Maggio is just around the corner and remains the focus of Florence’s thriving antique trade.
Over time the Oltrarno became a rather chic area and many aristocrats chose this neighbourhood to build their villas and palaces, the largest of these being the Pitti Palace. Today this sumptuous palace houses several important museums which rank amongst the best in Florence. Other major sights the Oltrarno has to offer are the Cappella Brancacci with its fabulous frescoes, Piazzale Michelangelo with its breath-taking views over Florence, the magnificent church of San Miniato, (one of the highest points in the city of Florence and also one of the best examples of Romanesque architecture in Tuscany) together with the most famous and oldest bridge in Florence, the Ponte Vecchio, home to a glittering array of jewellery shops and goldsmiths.
Extending up the hill from the Pitti Palace are the formal Boboli Gardens, an outdoor museum of garden sculpture that includes Roman antiquities as well as 16th and 17th century works. The Oltrarno is famous for its wine bars such as Olio & Convivium, authentic trattorias serving typical Tuscan cuisine, the wonderful fresh produce market held every morning in Piazza Santo Spirito. The Oltrarno quarter also offers a variety of grocery stores, pastry shops, bakeries, gift shops, and much more.
The Apartment is right in the city centre, distant 850 mt. from the rail station and 10 km from the airport of Florence "Amerigo Vespucci".
The apartment is located within the ZTL zone (“limited traffic zone”).
