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. Very quiet. free Internet WIFI.
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 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 a small 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 !
Other Things to Note
Excellent Internet WIFI, the router is in the apartment.
Is not possible to smoke in the apartment. You could make it on the nice balcony where you could find a table with chairs.
Patrizia was a lovely host, excellent communication and was very helpful in organising check-in and check out. She was there to meet us shortly after our arrival and was kind enough to show us around the apartment and provided us with us with helpful tips about Florence and a map which was much appreciated. The apartment was lovely and very well equipped and in a great central location! All the sights were within walking distance.
Patrizia's apartment was as described; in an excellent location and an easy walk to many attractions. Communication with Patrizia was smooth as well. Patrizia was most helpful in checking us in and out as well as providing some good recommendations. Would recommend/stay again.
Patrizia's apartment was more than prefect! She was easily available if we had questions and the place was super easy to walk to from the train station. If my pregnant wife could do it then you know it must be a piece of cake. The apartment was perfectly set up like a cozy bed and breakfast with Patrizia's extremely warm hospitality! It was set back in a quiet, very safe area but when you walk out to the front you are surrounded by tasty foods from cute cafes and gelato places (and just steps from the Ponte Vecchio). It was my wife's and my first experience in Florence and we can't wait to go back and stay with Patrizia to enjoy Florence again...maybe even with the baby!! :)
Patrizia's apartment was excellent! The location couldn't have been any better with many attractions just a couple minutes away. The apartment was spacious and comfortable for 3 people and the balcony was a great spot to relax. Patrizia was very attentive and hospitable. Thank you for having us Patrizia!
We were welcomed to the apartment by Patrizia's housekeeper who was very sweet and did a good job showing us the place without speaking very much English . We stayed on the fourth floor so we were really happy that there was a lift to take our bags up! It was in a very convenient area, within walking distance to the train station, the Duomo, and many shops and restaurants. We did not use public transportation at all. The apartment was clean and roomy enough for four people. We were provided with pretty much everything we needed. We had a great time and recommend this place to anyone looking for a very reasonably priced place in a convenient area in Florence!
First of all Patrizia is very well organized. She replays to the messages instantly, is very helpful and flexible.
Secondly the apartment is extremely well located. All the touristic sites, good restaurants and bars are within walking distance.
The apartments is cozy, well equipped and quiet. The area is very safe. There is a cute ancient style elevator on the second floor for those who get tired after all day walking in town.
We definitely recommend this apartment!

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!
