Santa Croce apartment description

This spacious three bedroom is in a historical aristocratic palace in a fantastic lively and central yet quite location - next to the beautiful Piazza d'Azeglio (one of the very few playgrounds for children in the green), and a short walk (12-15 minutes, 0,7 mile) from the Duomo, Santa Croce, the Synagogue, Accademia (where the David is!) and Uffizi and popular shopping and restaurant area of Sant'Ambrogio. Michelangelo Buonarroti himself use to live very close to this area and his house is still there.
It is a very Florentine part of the town; where real upper class Florentines still live.
The day market of Sant'Ambrogio, -still very genuine place unspoiled by the tourist mob- where you can find any sort of delicious food is a few hundred metres away. Twenty metres away you have one of the few organic food shops and restaurants of Florence. If you do not feel like cooking, this is an area with plenty of charming little restaurants of all sorts. The world-renown Gelateria Veneta and Vivoli (ice cream shops) are only e few block away.
Possibility to rent a private parking for 25€/day.

Shops of all sorts are only a minute away and on the last week-end of each month the Flea Market is 250 metres away. Yet, the area is very quiet. And if you want to climb on the hill of Piazzale Michelangelo is a 20 minutes walk to get on the top.

Confortable and cosy: The Ugolino golf club with its beautiful swimming pool and tennis is only 15 km (8 miles) away.
