The Neighborhood

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.

House Rules

No smoking.
No visitors.
No cooking.
Accommodation does not include breakfast and use of the kitchen - but there are plenty of cafés, bars and restaurants in our neighborhood where you can have breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack ...
No use of washing machine - but there are lots of laundromats nearby.
Curfew: we prefer that guests be home by 1 am.
If a guest looses the apartment keys, they will be asked to cover the cost of changing the locks and having new keys made.
The terrace is available by a personal invitation from the hosts.

Guests are asked to be mature, tidy and respectful.

Before booking, make sure that my 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.
