WE WELCOME EVERYBODY, THE ONLY CONDITION IS BEING KIND! =)
The apartment is located in Piazza Santa Croce , in the heart of the historical center. It is a very lively area , both day and night. In fact, you only need to turn the corner to find the best shops , restaurants and clubs of the city .
The location is also great for those who want to visit the historic and artistic attractions of Florence. You do not need to use public transport: you can reach the center just walking. You can easily reach the Ponte Vecchio and the Cathedral in 7 minutes, the Piazza della Signoria in 5 minutes, and the Galleria degli Uffizi in 5 minutes.
The zone is well served by public transport and reachable by taxi. The nearest bus stop is located just 2 minutes from the apartment: lines 23 and C2 take you to/from the station of Santa Maria Novella, where you can also catch the shuttle bus to the airports of Peretola and of Pisa.
If you arrive by car you need to know that the centre of Florence is a RESTRICTED TRAFFIC ZONE(DO NOT ENTER WHEN THE TRAFFIC LIGHT IS RED!!!!!!). We recommend a private garage, which is situated 2 minutes from the flat.
It costs anywhere from 20 to 29 Euro per night (it depends on the size of the car) including the entrance in the traffic limited zone.
You can ask me for further information about transport.
