Property description

This characteristic two bedroom apartment is located on the top floor (fourth) with an elevator of an old Florentine liberty style palazzo. It is located in the heart of Florence one half block from the cathedral square. This is a no traffic street.
The flat has the most spectacular view of the Cathedral Dome with its lovely rooftop terrace (unforgettable views). It is situated on two floors. The entry level houses the two bedrooms (one with two single beds and one with a double bed) and 2 bathroom with a shower stall.
On the next floor (reached by a small wooden stairway) there is the living/dining area and small (but functional) kitchen alcove. There is a lovely corner fireplace in the living area.
Up a few steps is the study area with a day bed (single) and its spectacular view of the Cathedral dome. From the study you enter the terrace. The terrace has outdoor furniture and a big sun umbrella. The furnishings are comfortable and reflect the owners many travels to the far east.

We are a family of three: my husband is a doctor, my 29 year old son and I am a math teacher. We are native Florentines and we live on the third floor of the building. Our English speaking skills are fairly basic so please be patient and excuse any mistakes when responding.....thank you.

P.S. From my precedent American guest.

We stayed at a delightful place in Florence and want to let you know
about the place.
It is no problem communicating with Angela by e mail but she does
not speak English although her 29 year old son, Marco, speaks English.
The location is fantastic ! It is about a 10 minute walk from the train
station and smack in the middle of everything.
As a matter of fact, when you step out of the building you are in one
of the main thoroughfares and surrounded by about 4 restaurants and stores.
Amazing thing is that when you are in the flat you cannot hear the street
noise at all .. it is only when you are down on
the ground floor about to step through the door that you hear the street
So, you find number 11 .. press Angela's flat (she lives on the 2nd
floor and the flat is on the 3rd floor) and she meets you at the door. You
go through the old main door .. then an iron gate .. then up a short
stairs and you come to the elevator; which is amazing in itself. It is a
modern elevator but will hold only 2 people .. or one with bunch of luggage.
The unit itself is on 3 levels .. as you enter there are 2 bedrooms
and 2 bath (shower) on the main floor. This can sleep a couple in the double
bed room .. and two singles (or 3 as there are also 1 extra bed!) or other couple in the other room.
The you walk up a short set of stairs and you arrive in the living room which has a fire place .. dining table and comfortable chairs. Also a kitchen well equipped whit microwave , mini oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher washing machine.
The you go up one more level to the study; which is attached to a marvelous roof top deck with fantastic view of the Florence
sky line.
The study has a wonderful couch where one more person can sleep (sofa bed) .

Other than that .. what a find. The location is perfect .. I love all
the restaurants and shops around her place .. And we lit the fire in
the fireplace and it was marvelous .. to be able to make a cup of tea
in the kitchen .. on an on ..
