Uffizi studio description
Excellent studio apartment when historic center location and affordability are top priorities.
Camerata is situated right in the Medieval area of the city centre, on Via dei Cerchi, by the Signoria square, surrounded by Florence’s famous museums, monuments, churches, luxury shops, restaurants, theatres, cinemas, discotheques, markets, bars, and café‘s.
It is an inexpensive retreat in the middle of Florence’s historic downtown streets, with the added benefits of a kitchen, washing machine, bathroom, Internet, and a view of Florence’s roof tops.
Just outside the building’s front door to the right is the Palazzo Vecchio (Florence Romanesque Town Hall). There is a fruit business and a coffee shop right in front, “Il Buongustai” (a small wine bar and osteria that serves all the Tuscan classics at unbeatable prices) and a tiny grocery store (“alimentari”) next door, an American Express office around the corner; and several local stores, the best pizza place in town (il forno), and the back entrance to a modern shopping mall.
Once the tower of one of the medieval Cerchi family palaces, the bankers of the Medici family, the tower’s access to the palace was blocked to create 1 to 2 apartments per half floors.
Camerata is an air conditioned studio located on the 3rd ½ floor (this is called the 2 ½ floor in Italy), with 2 large antique “door” windows that overlook an internal breeze way from where Florence’s roof tops can be viewed.
The Studio has a full sized bed with a rolling narrow table that crosses the bed horizontally so that you can eat / work in bed, use it as a head board, or make the bed a sofa!
It is visually divided by long velvet draperies that give it privacy from the living/dining area. Two wardrobes give you enough space to release your luggage and the ample window-doors fill the room with subtle natural light all day long.
As you enter Camerata a replica of Klimt’s “The Kiss”, created by a local Florentine artist with pieces of leaves and flower petals from Florence’s surroundings greets you, and two locally-designed olive fronds candelabra sit at each side ready to be lit during the evening.
The Studio has a cozy bathroom with shower, and a private small kitchen with a 2 burner electric stove, toaster, under-the-counter refrigerator an Italian-style coffee pot, and a washer. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, pots and pans and has an additional storage area.
The living/dining area has a seat that converts into a single bed for guests, faced by a leaf dining table that sits 4 people; the TV is on a wall swivel and can be seen from the bed area or living/dining area.
If you want to be in the middle of Historic Florence, in an small apartment with all the amenities for a long-term stay, and all the sites within a few minutes walk, Camerata is a great choice.

Great apt for long term stay in Firenze
Great apt for long term stay in Firenze
Great location in the heart of the old city and if you can manage the 81 steps to the door, you will love staying here. Not that bad once you get used to the climb! Stairs are pretty prevalent for most attractions. Fairly noisy in stairwells but late night revellers were few in the 3 weeks we stayed. Happy we could do laundry and cook a few meals. Well appointed MP Meta grocery close by and fruit stand across from the front door excellent. Apt clean and well maintained! Could use a better shower stall. Agent Pitcher & Flacome were very helpful. Definitely recommend. Acqua Al Due restaurant- need reservation, Yellow Bar for pizza & home made pastas- reservation recommended, Gusta Leo- a regular haunt, Verrazano's for lattes and cappuccinos- cheaper if you stand, great baked goods; our fave- Briganti for authentic home cooked Italian meals- #4 bus, worth the trip, need a reservation!!! Haveli near the Stazionne if you need an East Indian fix! Sorry we didn't get to the best Indian restaurant in Feisole but did make that bus trip, #7 from Piazza San Marcos. Don't miss the Academia- home of the original David- 4E for a reservation; great entertainment- St. Mark's Church across the Arno not far from the Ponte Vecchio for Opera, 20-25E. Saw 'Love Duets'- excellent! Florence Curiosity Shop for souvenirs and soccer memorabilia. Big shout out to shop owners Mohsen and Saeedeh Tutunci!! Thx for making our stay so memorable!! Would definitely stay here again; price is right for a long term stay!! Loved Florence, a great city for walking!

About: My daughter and I were looking for a place in Italy where we would feel we belonged. We started looking for that place in Florence and fell in love with the medieval historic area around Piazza Signoria, the life style, and how accessible Italy is from the city.
We love to be in the middle of everything. And that’s where the Studio is by the Signoria square, a few steps from the Duomo, Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio; we are surrounded by Florence’s famous museums, monuments, churches, luxury shops, restaurants, theatres, cinemas, discotheques, markets, bars, and café‘s.
