Palazzo Pitti apartment description

Vellutini (80 sq. m., 860 sq. ft.) is a two-bedroom, one-bath apartment, with lounge and eat-in kitchen located in the Oltrarno Quarter of the Florence Historic City Center. It is on the first floor, with 23 steps, and no elevator. The apartment is furnished in a contemporary style, and is suitable for older children. Non smoking only.

It’s exceptional location puts you within a 2 minute walk from either the Pallazzo Pitti and Boboli Gardens to the south, or the Ponte Vecchio to the north.

Mere steps from the door, the quaint Piazza della Passera is home to a local coffee/wine bar, gelateria, one of the best tripperia’s in town: Il Magazzino, and at Vellutini 1, the famous Quattro Leoni, which has served clientele such as Isabella Rossalini and Anthony Hopkins.

Stroll along the gold shops on the Pontevecchio, past leather-glove and fine-linen stores to the Mercato Nuovo, where you can rub il Porcellino’s nose for good luck and find a souvenir for a friend or a gift for yourself. Another 3 minutes and you are on the steps of the Duomo, Santa Maria del Fiori.

Oltrarno means “other side of the Arno”. This bohemian quarter of Florence is located south of the River Arno. It contains many notable sites such as the church Santo Spirito di Firenze, and Piazzale Michelangelo. Other significant attractions on this quieter side of the river include Santa Maria della Carmine, home to the Brancacci Chapel, and Fort Belvedere.

              About: We travel often, and enjoy new adventures; however, we call Florence and this apartment our second home. Please enjoy it as we do, while we explore other areas of the world!

              Why Palazzo Pitti:
              With the idea of one day retiring in beautiful Florence, we were lucky enough to find this gem of a location. We travel here as often as possible, and hope you will too!

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              The location is the number one reason we love this apartment, but it is also roomy, restful, and comfortable... An inviting place to rest your feet after a long day of sight-seeing.
