              My apartment is located in Via Pisana,489 50143 FIRENZE at very few steps from the tramway stop named 'FEDERICA'. There is a tramway going each 3 minutes from 5.00 am to 12.30 in the night. It takes 12 minutes from FEDERICA stop to arrive to Florence 's center at the last tramway stop ' FLORENCE TRAIN STATION'.

              The tram is the spediest way to get to the centre. The neighborhood is safe, quaint and quiet with small markets, stores, banks nearby.

              Therefore if you come by car, you may opt to leave your car in front of the apartment and take the train to move you through Tuscany.

              You can park your car freely in front of the apartment or you can choose to park it in a closed parking for 5 €uro per day.

              I like taking care of my guests and pointing out my favorite spots in Florence and Tuscany.

              In the courtyard of the apartment 2 bicycles are available for guests.In few minutes you can be downtown .

              Directions:By CAR: from the A1 autostrada (highway) exit at FIRENZE SCANDICCI and follow the sign FIRENZE.

              Florence is an excellent base from which to visit the beautiful Tuscan towns of :SIENA, PISA, LUCCA, AREZZO, the CHIANTI area, the Termal waters SPA of Rapolano Terme, Bagno Vignoni etc..
