Guest access

The train station of Santa Maria Novella is at only 300 meters.
The shuttle service from Florence airport stop in the same square so in both case you don't need taxi or public transportation and will arrive by walking in 3 minutes.
IF YOU ARRIVE BY CAR: In the historic center there are restrictions to traffic for not residents, so you have to leave the car out of that area and find a parking spot there, you can find free ones (good luck with that..) and then walk to my house, maybe less if you are lucky. You can also park in a private parking around the block from my house which cost €20/24 per 24h. Honestly I will suggest to search for a parking spot out before enter the cameras, other guests have done this way.
Other closer parkings are (payment) at Via Nazionale or in the underground of Mercato Centrale (this is very expensive) at only 30 meters from the flat.

Interaction with guests

At your arrival we will give you all the informations that you may need about the city, museums, theatre, shopping etc.

The neighbourhood

Via Zannoni is a typical street in the historical city centre. There are many restaurants, coffe shops, markets. Supermarket and a self service laundry are at only 30 meters from the flat.
We are only 4 minutes by walking from the Florence's "Duomo" Cathedral and 7 minutes from the Uffizi Gallery.
Within 20 meters distance, around the corner, there is the famous market of "San Lorenzo".
From here you may visit all the historic centre by walking, without need of pubblic transportation or car.

San Lorenzo's neighborhood is one of the most characteristic of the city. It houses the famous covered market where you can find hundreds of grocery stores, fresh fruits and vegetables. In the street, few meters away, there are a supermarket and a laundry service. At few hundred meters you will find the Medici Chapels and the major monuments of Florence. You do not need a car or use public transport to get around this central area of the city

Getting around

All public and private funds have the terminus in the square of the train station , Santa Maria Novella, less than 300 meters away. Here there's also buses which provide the connection to the airport of Florence and Pisa or The Mall shopping center.

Great apartment in the center of town. Quick walk from the train station. Just a block from San Lorenzo market. The beds are both off of the living room with the no doors, so there isn't privacy. The loft bed would not be suitable for an older person or anyone that isn't agile. Both beds are comfortable though.

The aparment is small but nice, and really close to the San Lorenzo market. You don't hear the noise but the direct way to the main sights goes through it.
