Characteristic apartment in pedestrian area few steps from Ponte Vecchio. Located in one of the streets of the old town in the district of Oltrarno. Short walk to all the most important places of Renaissance culture.
These apartments, almost identical in size and layout, are located just steps from the Ponte Vecchio at the border of the Oltrarno district of Florence. Their location is ideal; though less than ten minutes from the Duomo and thus the heart of Florence’s city center, they are in a neighborhood that still retains its authenticity and is slightly removed from the tourist bustle. It is renowned for artisan shops, very cool piazzas, markets, and fantastic restaurants, and one of Florence’s most favorite wine bars is literally across the street. The Boboli Gardens and Pitti Palace are all less than five minutes away. They are also ideal for more than one family traveling together given that they are in the same building on consecutive floors.
The main entrance to the apartments is a lovely courtyard that is home to one of Florence's most famous ceramic shops. The large windows inside the apartments look out onto other typical courtyards and the red rooftops that are so representative of Florence. The apartments are extremely quiet and privacy is guaranteed because they do not face the busy street below. They consist of an ample entryway, a living and dining area with dining table and sofa bed, a large double-room with queen-size bed, a recently renovated bathroom with shower, and a small kitchen. They are located on the second, and fourth floors of an historic building, and there is an elevator (to reach the elevator you must go two sets of stairs).
They also have all modern amenities: internet connection, air conditioning in one room, heating, ceiling fans, hairdryer, iron, and washing machine. All kitchen supplies are provided, from flatware and glassware to microwave oven, American coffee machine, refrigerator, toaster oven, and electric tea kettle. Small animals are permitted on the premises pending approval of the landlord.
Location, layout, and amenities make these lovely apartments a true find.

The OLTRARNO area is one of the best and old area of Florence. Best restaurants, trattoria gelateria...
You dont need public transit, just walking you could be in less than 5 minutes in all the best central and important places of the old town.
From the airport taxi or shuttle, very easy and not expensive!
Other Things to Note
Excellent Internet WIFI, the router is in the apartment
Is possible to smoke just on the balcony where you could find a nice table and chairs.
Patrizia è un host eccezionale: precisa, puntuale ed estremamente gentile. L'appartamento corrispondeva perfettamente alle foto: pulito e centralissimo! Ottimo anche per 4 persone....weekend fantastico!
Più che consigliato :)
Appartamento in posizione magnifica esattamente dietro ponte vecchio! Esattamente corrispondente alle foto,perfettamente funzionale. Patrizia è un host di eccezione, ci ha accettato la richiesta immediatamente anche se fosse già tardi nel pomeriggio. Altamente raccomandato.
we stayed 2 nights at patrizia's "great apartment ponte vecchio" and it is a perfect description. the title should also have said, "fantastic host." the apartment was lovely, well equipped and clean. it is right in the heart of everything, but on the less touristy side of the arno river. patrizia made sure we were comfortable, and when we had a problem with the electricity, she came and fixed everything. would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting florence!
Patrizia è un host davvero eccellente, cortese e disponibile. L'appartamento è perfetto per una coppia o anche per un gruppo di persone che vuole approfittare della vicinanza al centro storico per trascorrere un periodo piacevole.
We had a great time in the beautiful city of Florence. The apartment is clean and very well located in the center of the city. Our host was very responsive and helped us find our way around the city. We highly recommend staying at Patrizia's apartment to enjoy the city of Florence!
We were so lucky to stay in Patrizia's apartment. We contacted her last minute (a few hours before we were scheduled to arrive) and she got back to us right away. She sent us a map with a route from the train station to her place and met us outside at 10 p.m. to show us around! The apartment was small (it doesn't match the photos), but perfect for the two of us and our five month old. She had a bottle of wine, pastries and a city map waiting for us. There were also brochures of local museums and such at our disposition. We were overjoyed to discover that for our 5 month old she had a crib and a high chair.
The location is wonderful - never having been to Florence, I didn't think it was close to downtown, but it is. We walked everywhere. The only drawback was that the bed had deep indentations on each side where people sleep, but we were so exhausted, we slept fine. I would definitely stay here again.
I'm very happy for the trip to Firenze，and also very happy for living there.sono felice per qui e patrizia è molto simpatica.

I was born in Florence, and I love my city. I love the art of Renaissance , even though my job took me to the knowledge of modern art. I like traveling , although in recent times I am always here because I want to give to my guests who stay in my apartment all my support. I love pets!
