About the Property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Located in the hearth of Florence, surrounded by the Santa Croce church e Signoria Square, an elegant top roof apartment will give you the chance to have an overview of this magnificent city. The flat is inside a historical building, which was the house of the embassy of the Duch of Milan in the 15th century. It is situated on the 4th floor and you would need to reach it through 86 steps (without elevator), but this would only be an insignificant sacrifice compared with the 360°view on Florence that you will be able to admire.
The property develops on two levels, on the first floor you can find the double bedroom with bathroom and the master bedroom with his bathroom en suite, this two rooms are very bright and have all the facilities you need. A charming staircase leads you to the second floor, a unique and fascinating area that consist of a lounge, a dining area and a full equipped kitchen. Nine windows, that are spread all around the walls, illuminate the whole room and offer a breath taking view with two panoramic terraces, furnished for outdoors meals. All the materials used for the construction are unique and ancient: the pavements are made of Florentine terracotta and the ceilings of wooden beams. The apartment is exceptionally convenient for anyone looking to see most of Florence's sights in a short while; easily , without car, bus or taxi , you can enjoy this wonderful city , all is within max 10 minutes by walk . This is a prime location for sightseeing and entertaining, the area is vibrant but very safe and has plenty of shops , restaurants and theatres all very close. The apartment is absolutely quite, up here there are only birds singing and tower bells noises. It’s a magical place!!
The apartment is also located two blocks far from one of the best italian restaurant: the famous Enoteca Pinchiorri.
We have other properties in the same area , all very close , we can host up to 8 people in two flats in the same block , see also listings 268721 just behind the corner . .
