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.

Fantastic location and really interesting tower apartment. Excellent communication with Alfredo - the host. We were met by Maurizio who was amazing - he helped us with car parking at Parking Lungarno which is just opposite the apartment - he even helped carry our luggage! This is the ideal base from which to explore Florence. The only issue we had was with the air conditioning which was simply not up to the job of cooling the apartment and made it uncomfortable at night.

We had a really amazing stay at Alfredo's beautiful apartment. Maurizio couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. The apartment has everything you could need for a comfortable stay with a magnificent view thrown in. Really well located close to Ponte Vecchio but amazingly peaceful. Altogether a wonderful experience. Many thanks.
