About the Property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible Bed, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY
“La Colombina apartment "stands in one of the oldest medieval streets of Florence:”Borgo Santi Apostoli”. This name comes from the church in Limbo square, in front of the apartment. Santi Apostoli church is one of the most ancient and historical churches of Florence, on its façade you can see a plaque showing the foundation year “..800 a.C. in the presence of Charles Magne”.

Many historic legends originate from this church (known also as “Old Cathedral of Florence”) because it had an important role in popular fairs, above all “the explosion of the cart parade” on Easter Sunday with the famous dove-shaped rocket (known as Colombina) that sets the cart on fire.

THE LOCATION
"La Colombina apartment" is located in Borgo Santi Apostoli , in a evocative medieval atmosphere, near Ponte Vecchio , a few steps from "Lungarno" , and on the left side there is the seat of the prestigious maison “Salvatore Ferragamo”. Just round the corner and there is Via Tornabuoni the "fashion" street of Florence where you can find the famous boutiques such as Gucci, Prada, Armani and so on....cafés, restaurants.

Extremely centrally located, the apartment is minutes walk to all the major sites and touristic attractions of Florence, though is also very close to food shops and and markets.
