About This Listing
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.

This apartment was wonderful and exactly as appeared in the photos. It was on the fourth floor of a quaint building which had an inner courtyard with a beautiful ceramic shop. The building has very small elevator. The living room has AC and bedroom a ceiling fan. The apartment was not too hot although it was very warm outdoors. Small kitchen and bathroom perfect for a few days and even longer.
The location is great, right near ponte vecchio with a great small grocery store nearby and within walking distance of all tourist locations.
Patrizia was wonderful, greeted us when we got in, even with a bottle of wine and helpful map/suggestions. She responded quickly to all messages and was very kind even when we were late arriving and leaving!
I highly recommend this apartment in Florence.
The place was spacious, comfortable, and was as described. Patrizia kept in constant contact and made sure that we would arrive without any trouble. The apartment is located in an ideal place and is within walking distance of the Firenze SMN station and other tourist attractions.
Patrizia's apartment was great. It's location is perfect for the "Renaissance Walk" and hitting all of the major attractions. I unfortunately lost my phone the first day of our vacation and Patrizia was really patient and helpful with my check-in and accommodations even though I showed up while she was working. The apartment was clean and very spacious. I would highly recommend this apartment. Thanks again for everything.
We LOVED this apartment and Patrizia! The apartment is spacious and so cozy with big beautiful windows and a cute balcony! Minutes from Ponte Vecchio bridge and major attractions plus the train station was only a 15 minute walk. Patrizia was great at communicating directions and staying in touch through our stay. Patrizia was an amazing host - a bottle of wine when we arrived, answered questions immediately and even offered to print and bring our tickets when we could not find an internet cafe!
I'm not sure why there are complaints regarding the bed or mosquitos - we slept like babies with no issues of bugs, even though we had the windows open all through the night!
We plan on visiting Florence and Patrizia again! Only complaint - not all our Air BnB homes in Italy have been this great!
We had a great stay at Patrizia’s apartment. The apartment is spacious and nicely kept. It has 1 large bedroom, a small bathroom, a living room, a well equipped kitchen, and a cute balcony. It is only 2 minutes from the Ponte Vecchio bridge and about a 15-20 minute walk to the train station. Even with it being so close to the Ponte Vecchio, the apartment was very quiet.
Patrizia was a great host! She gave us a bottle of wine upon arrival, and took the time to tell us where all the major sites and the best places to shop were. She was also very responsive - she brought us additional packets of shampoo when we had run out.
The only issue we found was that the bed was uncomfortable - you could feel a metal pole in the center of the mattress and the rest of the mattress sloped toward the sides. Also, there were lots of mosquitoes probably due to the proximity to the river. Apart from that, it was a good stay!
Beautiful apartment in a perfect location right in the centre of Florence. Would love to stay there again and Patrizia was a great host. Thanks!
Patrizia is the most wonderful host!
She was very attentive in communication from the very beginning of booking trip, all the way through to every little detail . Her place is amazing location in Florence.

About the Host, Patrizia
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!
