HELLO! Only 150 yards from Ponte Vecchio and 247 yards from Uffizi Gallery! A pleasant, recently renovated apartment with two fully-equipped, windowed bathrooms on the ground floor of an ancient thirteenth Tower building. It sleeps four people
Only 137 metres (150 yards) from Ponte Vecchio and 204 metres (247 yards) from Palazzo Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery, this recently renovated apartment is located on the ground floor of an ancient twelfth-century tower building.
It sleeps four people plus a baby as we can also provide a cot.
Right in the historic heart of Florence, the apartment consists of an entrance hall leading onto a small but well-equipped kitchen with induction hot plates, refrigerator and freezer, microwave oven, a Nespresso coffee machine, kettle and toaster.
The double bedroom has a LED TV set and a walk-in wardrobe with a fully-equipped, windowed en-suite bathroom with bath.
There are two divans in the living room that are actually real beds with top-quality mattresses, plus a second digital terrestrial and satellite LED TV set.
From the living room, access is gained to a second fully-equipped, windowed bathroom with shower alcove.
The entire historic centre of Florence is in itself a huge work of art with a myriad of splendid museums to be visited... such as the Uffizi, the Duomo with Giotto's Bell Tower, Palazzo Vecchio with Arnolfo's Tower, Ponte Vecchio... and famous palazzos such as Palazzo Strozzi and Palazzo Pitti. You can walk everywhere in this city which is filled with numerous different restaurants, beautiful fashion and luxury-item stores, as well as small craftsmen's workshops where the trades are handed down from father to son.
If you reach Florence by train ( Santa Maria Novella train station) you need less than 10 minutes by taxi to be in front of our apartment. If you arrive in Florence, at Amerigo Vespucci airport (Peretola - Firenze) by plane you need around 20 - 25 minutes by taxi. You will not need to take any public transport to see Florence - everything is at your fingertips as the apartment is right in the middle of the historic centre. In any case, there are small electric buses that connect the centre of Florence with the urban bus network that covers all the suburbs and the outskirts.
If you are driving into Florence by car, only 80 metres away from the apartment in the same street, Via delle Terme, there is Garage delle Terme (where you pay directly), which allows entry with your car even into the limited-traffic zone of the city.
Our guests will be interested to know that after crossing Ponte Vecchio, on the left there is a good supermarket which stoks all foodstuffs, gastronomy, fruit, vegetables, wines, beverages and everything else you might need during your stay in Florence.
Don't hesitate to contact us for any question and information during your stay in Florence.
