The neighbourhood

The Cure is a residential area of Florence, located immediately north of the old town.

In ancient times, this area north of Porta San Gallo was open countryside and only in the nineteenth century was highly urbanized. In the square of the Cure was one of the many duty barriers for those who arrived in the city. The zone name is derived from "curandaie", ancient name for the washerwomen, who were also abbreviated as "cures" and rinsed clothes in the Mugnone. That of "curandaio" was in fact an ancient craft in flax production, which consisted of "cure" washing of the pieces until they lose their roughness and the yellowish color to get morbidity and a whiter color. Once the need to "cure" the paintings the name curandaio remained simply as a synonym for the washerman, that being mostly women were said curandaie.
Giuseppe Poggi designed carefully this part of town, especially in the most attractive points of the Fiesole hill slopes and along the bed of the Mugnone, where Boccaccio, in this part of the city, setting for the famous novel by Calandrino and heliotrope. From Piazza delle Cure started the first omnibus town line, which, from Freedom Square, arrived in Piazza della Signoria.

The area was disrupted by the railway cutting to the Florence Campo di Marte station, with the construction in 1914 of the overpass that connects the boulevard Don Minzoni with the square. The subway dates back to the seventies of the twentieth century; Today is one of the most popular places in Florence for graffiti and street art. The town square is a market held daily.

Very cozy,very stylish and just super comfortable appartment. It was such a pleasure to meet Laura and stay at her place. There was everything what you need for long staying. And we hope to visit Florence someday and stay at Laura's house again .

Laura is a wonderful hostess and her apartment is perfect for 2-4 people. The apartment is close to major buses and if you like to walk you can get to the city center easily. She provided breakfest items for our week stay and made sure we knew about the farmer's market and local grocery store. She explained everything from the stove to washing machine before she left so we were comfortable using everything. We loved Florence and are thinking we will visit again and if we do, we will stay with Laura. Feel confident when you book with Laura you will have a delightful experience.

Laura is an amazing host and her home is absolutely beautiful. It's clean and comfortable. The kitchen is fully stocked and the washing machine works perfectly. We left our keys in the apartment one day and Laura met us with a huge smile (as usual) to help us in. If I ever go back to Florence, I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Fully recommend.

Laura's place was comfortable and well priced. The centre was easily accessible and there were plenty of great local shops if you didn't want to venture too far. My only criticism was the train passing close by, but I do live in the countryside so this may not bother others. All in all a great experience.

We stayed in Florence for 4 nights with Laura. And from the beginning, she was incredibly helpful and kind. She helped us figure out our train schedule before we arrived, she picked us up from the train station because we didn't have a car, she had water, fruit and other essentials waiting for us in the kitchen at her place and she spent time showing us everything in her place and answered all of our questions. She had lots of suggestions and a large map to help get us oriented with the area. Her place is in a great location and we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. There is a supermarket near by, a fresh market everyday besides Sunday, phone stores, ATMs, cafes, restaurants, etc. Everything was spotlessly cleaned and the property looks so well taken care of. It is very well decorated and comfortable. She had all house needs and cooking utensils you might need. The wi-fi was super quick, we were able to do laundry easily. This was an awesome place to recoup and rejuvenate from a long trip. We wished we could have stayed longer. If we are ever back in Florence we would definitely stay here. Laura is a fantastic person and host and really made our trip to Florence great. Way better value than hotel, I would highly recommend.
