The apartment is on the third floor of a building with elevator in Florence historic centre, in the Oltrarno district.

In Roman times, merchants and artisans had already their dwellings and workshops in this area south of the River Arno, whose name "Oltrarno" means "beyond the Arno". In the early Middle Ages, some villages developed outside Florence city walls and in the following centuries were absorbed into the town, Oltrarno being the last in the 14th century. In the late 15th century, some families of the Florentine aristocracy decided to have new palaces built in this still rural and peaceful area, which at the time was inhabited mainly by artisans. The Pitti Palace was one of the first aristocratic residences to be built in Oltrarno. The area experienced new changes when Florence became the capital of the Kingdom of Italy: it is indeed in 1865 that piazzale Michelangelo was built.

In this area rich in handicraft workshops, stand also some of the most renowned Florentine monuments: the above-mentioned Pitti Palace with the gorgeous Boboli gardens and the churches of Santo Spirito and Santa Maria del Carmine.


The windows of the elegant and bright apartment afford a splendid view of the nearby River Arno, Palazzo, Vecchio, the basilica of Santa Croce and the Duomo.

Many famous Florentine monuments - including the churches of Santo Spirito and Santa Maria del Carmine, Palazzo Pitti and the Boboli gardens, Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria, the basilica of Santa Croce and the Uffizi Gallery - are within short walking distance. Piazzale Michelangelo and the church of San Miniato al Monte are easily reached by bus (a bus stop is in proximity to the apartment).


The elegant and bright apartment sleeps 6 guests and consists of kitchenette, living room with dining area, two double bedrooms, a twin bedroom (which can become a double one upon request) and two bathrooms (one with shower and one with bathtub).
