Property description

Casa Luce in San Lorenzo is located in the spacious Piazza del Mercato Centrale in San Lorenzo, at number 27, in the heart of Florence. It is within 5 minutes walking distance from the Cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore and the Baptistery of San Giovanni, and within 10 minutes walking distance from the Uffizi, Piazza della Signoria and Ponte Vecchio.

Casa Luce can easily be reached by car and agreement can be taken for the parking. Nevertheless a car is not needed: the main train station is 5 minutes away and all the city centre is within walking distance. Bicycles can be easily rented and sightseeing buses stop at 5 minutes of walk from home.

The flat, on the second floor of a XVI century building, is completely renewed not only in its structure, but also in its elegant and refined interiors. It has been furnished with ancient furniture and it is well equipped as we ourselves often come to enjoy Florence, sometimes with a couple of friends.


LOCATION AND DIRECTIONS: The location is another strong point. In the very heart of Florence, Casa Luce is located within 5 minutes walking distance from the Cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore and the Baptistery of San Giovanni, and within 10 minutes walking distance from the Uffizi, Piazza della Signoria and Ponte Vecchio.

CAR OR TRAIN?

The apartment can easily be reached by car but it is very convenient also if you plan to stay without. The main railway station of Santa Maria Novella is only five minutes walk away and it is connected with the airport with 2 shuttles every hour.

Bicicles can be easily rented, and sightseeing buses stop five minutes away.

SIGHTSEEING: Casa Luce is ideally situated to explore central Florence from its heart, without the need to use a car or public transportation, as most of the city center is prohibited to traffic.
The apartment is very near to Michelangelo’s Medici Chapels, the Basilica of San Lorenzo, the Duomo of Santa Maria del Fiore, the Medici Library, the Riccardian Library and the Marucellian Library.

Here some information for you. I'll be glad to help you in your needs.
The Cappelle Medicee (Piazza Madonna degli Aldobrandini, open: first, third and fifth Sun of every month: 8:15am - 5pm, weekdays: 8:15am - 5pm, closed first and third Mon of every month).
The chapel is an adjunct of the greater church, theBasilica di San Lorenzo (Piazza S. Lorenzo, open Sun from March to Oct: 1:30 - 5:30pm, weekdays: 10am - 5:30pm.)
Gothic cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, is best known as the Duomo (Piazza del Duomo), Sun: 1:30 - 4:45pm, Weekdays: 10am - 5pm, Thurs: 10am - 4:30pm, Sat: 10am - 4:45 pm

EATING IN FLORENCE: Right in Piazza del Mercato Centrale there are many restaurants and trattorias where you can eat. During the mild season it is pleasant to eat at the outside tables. I will be pleased to give you information and suggestions on the ones I prefer.

For grocery shopping nothing is better than the typical colored banks of fruit, vegetables, fresh bread, milk, meat and cheese located inside the nineteenth century building of the Mercato Centrale, right in front of you. (Mon-Sat 7am-2pm, Sat 4pm-8pm). There is plenty of fresh produce, cured meat, and local cheese to be sampled and purchased from a variety of vendors.

You can also consider that in Via Ginori there is a market which is open everyday until 7:00 p.m., even on Sunday.

Location

Car: Not Necessary

Monument View: You look over the square of the San Lorenzo Central Market, right in the centre of Florence.

The panorama is enchanting, with a splendid view over the large square of the remarkable nineteenth century building of the Mercato Centrale, one of three covered food markets built when Florence was the capital of Italy post-unification in 1860, a rarity for Florentine Renaissance standards.

The apartment is in the very center of Florence, perfect for art touring. Just few minutes walk to Michelangelo’s Medici Chapels, the Basilica of San Lorenzo, the Duomo of Santa Maria del Fiore, the Medici Library, the Riccardian Library and the Marucellian Library, Ponte vecchio.

Interesting shopping from famous jewellers, antique furniture restorer and italian fashon shops.

Day trips to Pisa, Lucca, Portofino and Liguria are easy with a car or by train.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Of Florentine origin, I left my home town for love and adventure. I'm an art historian and I live in Montevarchi (Arezzo), a small town in the Chianti area, not too far from Florence.

Why the Owner Chose San Lorenzo:
I bought Casa Luce because I grew up in Florence and I love my town so much. I didn't buy it only for rental purposes: I often come to Florence myself-alone or with friends- for a relaxing weekend, for a special dinner or to visit an art exhibition.
