Interaction with Guests

A warm welcome awaits you upon arrival. We like knowing our guests in person, showing their accommodation and its facilities and we are willing to help out with everything they might need.

As our house is located in the same building, we are very closed in case of need or just to enjoy a good conversation and a glass of wine.

The Neighborhood

The apartment is located in the heart of the historic centre, a living-archive of Italian culture that earned Florence's nomination as a very fist Italian UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Symbol of the Renaissance, the historic centre offers at a walking distance all the major attractions. Walking through its narrow streets you will find: Duomo Square, Galleria degli Uffizi, Accademia delle Belle Arti, Ponte Vecchio and Boboli gardens, among the others.

Apart from its small artisan workshops and buildings remained unchanged since the middle ages, the centre of Florence also offers good restaurants, theatres, music, and all the entertainments to enjoy an unforgettable holiday.

Getting Around

Thanks to its small size, the historic centre of Florence can be visited walking, so you do not need to use public transports. Anyway, a bus stop is located on the same street, in front of the apartment.

In case you want to visit in the surroundings of the city (Siena, Arezzo, Pisa, Cinque Terre, etc.) you can get to the Central Train Station, that is also the Bus station (long distance/airport shuttles), at a 10 minutes walking distance.

How to get to the apartment from the airport (Pisa or Florence):
A shuttle service is provided from the airport to the Central Train Station (two companies operates: Terravision and Autostradale). From here, we suggest to walk to the apartment (10-12 minutes) or to get a taxi (around 12 euros) in case you are travelling with heavy luggages.

In case you are getting to Florence by car, please consider that the centre has a Restricted Traffic Zone.
If you want to access the center by car, you should park in a private car park (apart from parking in the centre without the need of a special permission, the service offered by theses car parks consists in claiming and paying on your name, the fine you would get by entering the RTZ).
This service costs about 15 euros and gives the right to park for 3 hours, which will give you enough time to unload the luggages and settle in the apartment.
The prices of parking for the whole day are about 25 euros. Outside of the RTZ, you can easily find free parking on the streets.
