The studio is just 5 minutes walking from Piazza Santa Croce and a little more from Piazza della Signoria, where it is Palazzo Vecchio and Uffizi Gallery...you'll be surrounded by the beauty of the ancient downtown of Florence!!
With a few minutes of pleasant walk you'll be in Piazza del Duomo, where there is Campanile di Giotto and Battistero, San Lorenzo Basilica and Market, Ponte Vecchio and Palazzo Pitti.
The studio is very close to the School of Architecture and Biblioteca Nazionale.
The loft is very nice, bright, quiet and on the 3rd floor, under the roof. The peculiarity of this place is the fully exposed Tuscan-style roof, with wooden beams, where there are two skylights that make the environment airy and very bright.
Equipped with stylish decor and characterized by its natural light from above, it's the perfect combination of function, comfort and a good location in Historic downtown.
Ideally suited for today’s business or leisure travelers, you’ll have all the privacy you need.
There is a living open space, with terracotta floor, at the entrance of the studio. Here you can find a sofa, TV and a large wardrobe where you can put your clothes.

This area is also illuminated by a window overlooking a little courtyard inside the building.
In the cozy and bright sleeping space, on the mezzanine, there is a comfortable queen sized bed for 2 people with a new mattress. It will be prepared for your stay with freshly washed, ironed and scented bed sheets.
It's under the Tuscan-style roof and a skylight makes the environment airy and bright.
