The Space

A cozy loft with mezzanine in an historical building with no elevator ( 3rd floor ) from the late 18th century, located in the city's historical center, in the S.lorenzo neighborhood, one of the city's most central locations. Just a few steps away from Ponte Vecchio, Museo degli Uffizi, and the famous Via Tornabuoni, the best for touring or shopping in Florence.

The loft is on the 3rd floor and has been recently refurnished according to traditional florentine interior standards: wooden ceiling and parquet on the floor, old tiles and marbles and a cozy wooden mezzanine.
There is a small living room with kitchenette and a queen size bed on the mezzanine.
Bathroom is ensuite.
There is also a beautiful terrace with view over the city centre and the Duomo. Enjoy sun-tanning or breakfast next to the Duomo on a sunny day!

Florence, Italy · Member since December 2012

I'm a photographer and journalism professor here in Florence.
I love traveling and meeting other people. Reportage is one of my deepest interests as it brings you towards other people and other places.
We can definitely chat for hours about photography, and I'd be glad to walk around Florence for a quick walk & shoot session if we have time!
I also love cooking, the fresh veggy market is just around the corner, and when summer arrives there is generally a barbecue on the terrace every other weekend and hosts are invited!
