Description

The space

Single room with a splendid view of the hills and the city monuments available in a large apartment located in the heart of Florence.

The room is simply furnished with a single bed (bed linen included), chest of drawers, valet stand, clothes rack, shelves and a small table; it is not too big but very cozy and sunny.
Wi-fi Internet connection, selection of books. No air conditioning.

Private bathroom (not ensuite), towels, hair dryer, shower & bath amenities.

Welcome drinks and bottle of mineral water.

The apartment is just a few hundred meters from the Cathedral and from the Congress Centre, the city's main shopping streets, monuments and museums. The airport is just 15 minutes away by taxi and the central railway station is 3 blocks away.

Before booking, please read our description in full and make sure that our house meets your needs.
For instance:
- Do you have problems climbing the stairs?
As in almost all buildings in the historic centre there is NO elevator and you have to climb the stairs up to the 4 th floor.

- Are you a very light sleeper?
Being located right in the middle of Florence, there is obviously some street noise and you will not wake up listening to singing birds. But we provide ear plugs.

- Are you alergic to cats? We have a kitten.

I'd like to know about you before I accept your booking - please have a profile, post a photo, allow airbnb to verify your ID, phone number and email, & /or send me some information when you submit your request.

Our "room with splendid view" is ideal for single travellers who need to stay at a friendly and clean place in the historic centre of Florence.
English, German, Italian, Spanish spoken.

Guest access

The terrace is available by a personal invitation from the hosts.

The neighborhood

San Lorenzo is a colorful neighborhood, a popular place to see how daily live is in city center of Florence. If you love shopping, chaos, art and crowds this is certainly the right district for you!

We are surrounded by the lively atmosphere of a daily market where you can buy souvenirs, clothes, handbags, wallets and leather articles. In fact San Lorenzo is the leather district, and browsing around the stalls under the Medici chapels you might find some leather bags and jackets at terrific prices!

If you like food take a break at the mercato centrale. The Central Market, built in 1874 by Milan's architect Giuseppe Megoni, is a huge iron and glass structure that resembles the Halles in Paris and his other famous construction, the Gallery of Milan. It is the largest and perhaps the most typical of his kind in Florence; not only is it possible to buy flowers, vegetables, fruit, meat, cheeses and all kinds of typical gastronomic products but you can also eat a delicious lunch in one of its inside small restaurants. The upper floor has now food stalls that serve freshly prepared goodies. It is open every day from 10 am to midnight. Pizza, mozzarella, fresh bread and pastry, fried fish and vegetables, cured meet, cheeses, chocolate and gelato. You can wander among the stands and pick your preferred food to eat right there, and you will see how it’s prepared, at the minute! Drinks? Of course: cappuccino, wine, beer, smoothies and juices! To complement the offer: a Cooking school, a library and a wine tasting bar with sommelier.

The Medici chapels, located just at two blocks from our flat, is housing monuments to members of the Medici family, in the New Sacristy of the Church of San Lorenzo in Florence. The funereal monuments were commissioned in 1520 by Pope Clement VII (formerly Cardinal Giulio de’ Medici), executed largely by Michelangelo from the year 1520 to the year 1534, and completed by Michelangelo’s pupils after his departure.

Getting around

You won't need public transportation to see all the major monuments. How convenient is that?

Other things to note

Since the dimensions of single beds vary considerably around the world, with most countries having their own standards and terminology, I should like to clarify the size of the single bed of our room in order to prevent any misunderstandings.

In Italy, the standard size of a single bed is: 80 cm wide by 190 cm long.
Our single bed is slightly longer than the standard size: 80 cm × 200 cm.

Florence, Italy · Joined in June 2011

Dreams of freedom and adventure were a vivid chapter of my childhood, and somehow still are. I love the horizon... so travelling became an activity in adult life.

For several years I was on the road with jazz musicians. Being a "roadie" manager was a great and unique experience not only for the sake of it but also for finding about people: I had to learn to be patient and to make my groups feel comfortable and happy while away from home. This experience was extremely useful later when I settled down in Florence and started accompanying tourists visiting Tuscany.

I think every single journey is worthwhile because we make it happens.
We all might have different targets but, as far as I know, everybody looks for a clean, quiet and friendly place for the night.

Love jazz, literature, cinema, animals, nature, bicycle riding. Sorry, I don't like soccer !
