FLORENCE ITALY PERFECT SOLARE APARTMENT
Freshly remodeled, sunny apartment in the historic center provides walkability to the sites. The top floor position yields lots of light, making it a cheerful, pleasant apartment.

Apartment is on the 4th floor (5th Floor North American designation). No elevator, 66 steps.

Location
Located near Piazza San Lorenzo it's an easy walk to the Duomo, the train station, the Church of San Lorenzo and Medici Chapels. The Mercato Centrale nearby offers vast varieties of Italian food specialities, cheeses, hand made pasta, artisan olive oils and fresh fruits and vegetables.

This is a very central location so you can be back 'home' within a matter of minutes from most of the historic center sites. The neighborhood has many convenient shops, there is a small supermarket within 2 blocks, a mom-and-pop grocer, a pizzeria, several restaurants, a pharmacy and a bakery within one block.

Exterior
The building is small with only two apartments per floor. The Solare apartment has an enviable top-floor position, commanding all three windows across the top floor of the building.

Interior
The building dates back to the 15th century so the building's stairwell shows some wear, with old stone steps that have been well used for centuries. It's not an impressive entrance, there are no architectural details or adornments since this was, and still is, a working class neighborhood.

The apartment is on the 3rd floor Italian/4th floor North America designation. There are 66 steps and no elevator. The greeter will help you carry your luggage upstairs on arrival.

As you reach the top floor a skylight over the stairwell admits light. On each floor the residents have put personal, neighborly touches on their front door or a little flower pot next to their door, so it feels homey and welcoming compared to a large, bustling impersonal apartment building.

A special feature that delights are the nice views from the windows in the living room and bedroom. Gaze out at timeless views of the distant hills that surround Florence. It's a bright, pleasant apartment.

The living room, bedroom and hallway have parquet wood floors, easy on the feet. The living room is cozy, with wood bookshelves, flat screen TV, IPod dock, multistandard DVD player with a small selection of English language DVDs. A comfy sofa and two arm chairs provide comfortable seating for four people. There is a pull-down double size Murphy bed in the living room. During the day it folds up flat behind the sofa. Since it is double size it's best suited for one adult or two young children. The living room door can be closed off, if you use the pull-down bed, a feature we appreciate so that guests in the bedroom can get up and move about the apartment without waking up other members of their travel party sleeping in the living room.

The bedroom has a queen size bed with a comfortable, good quality mattress. A large, handsome armoire provides good clothing storage space. Here too you can enjoy views across rooftops towards the hills. Night stands with small reading lamps are on either side of the bed.

The bathroom has a fully enclosed shower with adjustable sprayer and also a fixed rain style shower head. The shower stall is standard Italian size, but a bit small by U.S. standards. Plenty of natural light too from the window as well as good lighting over the medicine cabinet mirror.

The newly remodeled kitchen is delightful. It has a window facing the light well with a flower box, a nice touch. Full size refrigerator with separate freezer compartment, all amenities and thoughtfully appointed with pots, pans, utensils. The dining table is positioned in front of the kitchen window and can seat four people. It's a pleasant spot for eating and the table also provides good work surface for catching up on emails since apartment has free WiFi.
