About this listing

this is the apartment where I've spent, with my parents, 15 years, the last ones before I got married. Most of the forniture are the same, many books of mine are still on the shelves and many ornaments too; it happens that some guests ask where will we live for the period they will stay! I live with Veronica and our three sons very close to the apartment; my parents live even closest. This is because we love Santa Croce area.
I do believe this apartment will surely be your cozy florentine nest

located in a pedestrian area, just in front to the lateral entrance of Santa Croce Basilica, few minutes walk from Duomo, Piazza della Signoria, Uffizi, Accademia, etc : from every place you "must" see in Florence.
Restaurants, bars, shops are just outside the street door !!
Sant'Ambrogio market (open just in the morning - 3 minutes walk far) is one of the most characteristic place where you must go, to buy everything you need: from vegetables to clothes, from meat to shoes, etc.
Living in Santa Croce area will allow you a full immersion in Florence atmosphere.
As soon as you enter this apartment you realize you are in a typical house of the old Florence with ancient furniture and warm atmosphere. Original building has been built in 1467, 25 years before Cristoforo Colombo discovered America !!
