About this listing

It's a nice charming Florentine apartment in the old city center. 5 minutes far from the Duomo and the Uffizi and 15 min far from train station by feet. Thanks to its view on a garden the apartment it's very quiet and always fresh during the summer.

The space

The apartment was completely renovated in 2011 and is situated in an ancient medieval convent near the famous church of Santa Croce. The flat reflect the medieval origin of the building with some details such as ceilings with wooden beams and ancient Florentine terracotta floor. There are two bedrooms with double beds ans a nice living room with kitchen. From the lounge you can enjoy a pleasant view of the garden of Borgo Allegri.

Guest access

You can reach the apartment by bus, by taxi or by feet.

By bus(15 min): take the city bus line C2 (from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.) from "Stazione Alamanni" to "Malborghetto". Bus tickets can be purchased (1.5 €) on board asking the driver.

By taxi (10 min): at the train station you can easily find and take a taxi. There's a taxi station just in front of the exit. The ride should cost you approximately 20/25€.

-Continue for 600 meters on Via Ghibelline and take the road not right. -You will be in Via de 'Macci.

During your stay in Florence, you can visit a lot of museums churches and gardens. I recommend you to buy a guidebook to better discover all the typical and hidden places of Florence, but I'll try to give you some tips.

Museums: Uffizi (where you can see the most important Renaissance paintings) the Accademia (where you can see the David of Michelangelo and other magnificent renaissence statues and paintings), the Palazzo Pitti Museum or the Scienze Museum (near the Uffizi), the archaeological Museum where you can find the world most important collection of Etruscan Art and the fourth European collection of Egyptians Art.

Churches: Florence is well knew for its wonderful churches such as the Cathedral and its cupola, Santo Spirito, Santa Croce ( 2 min from the apartment), Santa Maria Novella (and the ancient perfumes factory of the monks), the convent of San Marco with its beautiful frescoes by Beato Angelico or San Miniato with its splendid view on the city and its ancient monumental cemetery .

Gardens: Florence its surrounded by wonderful hills where you can find some beautiful gardens such as: The Boboli Garden (Palazzo Pitti's Garden); the Bardini Garden (you can visit it with the boboli garden ticket); The Botanic Garden (Orto Botanico) near San Marco Church. If you want to enjoy a splendid view of Florence you can also visit the pretty little town of Fiesole (25 minutes by bus line 7 from S. Marco Square).

Interaction with guests

We live 500 meters far fro the apartment. One of the family members (me, my brother and my parents) will be surely available during all your stay.

Probably the best apartment I've ever stayed in using airbnb. The location is perfect, I did not take a bus or subway any time, I did everything on foot. There is a supermarket close by as well. The kitchen has everything I needed to cook, the beds are great, the apartment is spacious, nothing lacking. Filippo is very kind and left a notebook with map and information of the city. Highly recommend !! **** Provavelmente o melhor apartamento que ja me hospedei usando o airbnb. A localização é perfeita, não peguei onibus ou metro nenhuma vez, fiz tudo a pé. Tem supermercado por perto também. A cozinha tem tudo que precisei para cozinhar, as camas são otimas, o apartamento é espaçoso, não faltou nada. O Filippo é super agradavel, se colocou a disposição para qualquer coisa e ainda deixou um livro com mapa e varias informações da cidade. Recomendo muitissimo!!

Beautiful flat in great location, a 15 minutes walk away from all the main sites. We loved our stay in Florence and the flat is airy and light making it an agreeable place to have dinner at night when we were too tired to go out after a day of visiting. There's a great market around the corner and some nice restaurants too.
