FLORENCE ITALY PERFECT VESPUCCI APARTMENT
The Vespucci apartment is located in the historic center near the Ponte Amerigo Vespucci bridge, one block from the Arno river. The apartment is in a limited traffic zone so it is notably quiet, something that is a rare find in such a prime Florence location. As you stroll along the scenic Arno river, you will see teams of rowers gracefully making their way up the river, with the Tuscan hills in the distance. The produce market in the Cascine Park is a short walk away, where you can shop like a local for fresh produce & delicacies for meals back at the apartment.
