Other things to note
HISTORY OF THE APARTMENT
The apartment is in a unique medieval tower in the historical center. The only tower in Florence with a private garden in front.
Actually the building is composed of two different towers, Torre dei Ramagliani and Torre Belfredelli, build in the 12th century.
Each tower was built by two opposing families, Ramaglianti an important Ghibelline family and Belfredelli another prominent family but Guelph.
During the German retreat, Florence was declared an “open city”, thereby avoiding major war damage.
In 1944, the retreating Germans decided to blow up the bridges along the Arno linking the district of Oltrarno to the rest of the city, thus making it difficult for the British troops to cross.
However, at the last moment Hitler ordered that the Ponte Vecchio must not be blown up, as it was too beautiful. Instead an equally historic area of streets directly to the south of the bridge, including part of the Corridoio Vasariano, was destroyed using mines.
Since then the bridges have been restored exactly to their original forms using as many of the remaining materials as possible, but the buildings surrounding the Ponte Vecchio have been rebuilt in a style combining the old with modern design.
The only standing buildings where Torre dei Ramagliani and Torre Bellfredelli that survived, not only World War II but nine centuries of history.
Relax and enjoy Florence!
