This apartment features a bedroom with super comfy bed, ideal for two people or a solo traveler :)
The bedroom is included in a very spacious apartment, filled with natural light, at the second floor of an antique building, which means that no lift is available.
In the absolute center of Firenze (Florence), this apartment sits at few steps from the major attractions and point of interest of the city:
150 mt from the Central Market, where you can enjoy a pleasant atmosphere while tasting Tuscan specialties; 400 mt from Duomo square, from where all the streets starts to connect you to all the most beautiful and most seen places in Florence: Signoria’s square, Ponte Vecchio, Repubblica’s square, Santa Croce, Sant’Ambrogio and so on.
Due to the proximity of the central station (700 mt), from which all the regional, national trains, buses and trams leaves, it is very easy to visit other areas of the city or other cities in Tuscany or in Italy, also for a one or half day trip. In the radius of 200 mt from the apartment you could find: wine shop (our favourite), supermarket (ground floor of the same building we live in), tabacconist, pharmacy, laundry and shops of any kind. The room is 18mt2 with a high ceiling, two wide windows which fill up the room with lots of natural light, but they also have shutters that will keep the light completely out if you want. A 32” TV (old kind), air conditioning, wi-fi 24/24. The bathroom, shared with Lorenzo, it is placed next door to your bedroom and it is furnished with hairdryer, shampoo, conditioner and soap. You can use the full equipped kitchen as you please and will find stoves, pans, pots, coffee machine, oven and microwave. Moreover you can enjoy the lounge room. The linens, both for the bedroom and the bathroom, it is furnished. The use of the laundry is possible after request.
The building is easily reachable:
- by train, from SMN train station (central station of Firenze): 7/8 minutes by foot
- with the car: 15 minutes with ideal conditions of traffic from the exit of the highway (though keep in mind that you’ll have to park outside the city center, or in a paying garage in the center)
- from the airport: 15 minutes with a cab or 30/35 with the bus.
In the email of confirmation, once your trip is closer, we will give you details depending on your arrival in order to make it easier for you to reach us.
We can also help organising your trip with suggestions and/or proposal or reserving some of your tours.

We accept couples of any kind, single and families, preferably with a verified profile and that will respect the few rules of the house.
THE BEST WAY TO VISIT A CITY IS TO HAVE SUGGESTIONS FROM WHO LIVES IT ON A DAILY BASIS. ENJPY SHARING THE APARTMENT WITH LORENZO!! We love Firenze and we love to share our knowledge on the city and our favourite places with our guests. :)
