Property description

“Colombina” apartment stands in one of the oldest medieval streets of Florence:”Borgo S.S. Apostoli”. This name comes from the church in Limbo square, in front of the apartment. S.S. 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.

WHEN YOU’LL OPEN THE WINDOW OF THIS APARTMENT YOU FEEL AND BREATH THE MEDIEVAL ATMOSPHERE IN ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CITIES IN THE WORLD !!!

Colombina apartment is on the first floor with elevator of an important palace with a great entry. Recently renovated, charming, quite, bright with a wide living-space, with two windows including an equipped kitchen wall with all appliances. A table for four persons and a comfortable sofa (convertible bed for 2 persons cm 160x200), a large bedroom with double-bed and two big windows and one bathroom with shower. All with high quality details.

The apartment is provided with air conditioning, heating, satellite TV, DVD player and equipped with washing machine dryer, internet wireless, bed linen, towels, kitchen ware, microwave, pots, american/italian coffee maker, iron, ironing board, safety deposit box.

Borgo S.S.Apostoli street is also full of small shops as that one in front of our main door, selling fruits and typical products of Tuscany and the owner loves adorning her shop’s façade..to make it unique ...and many people stop and take picture too ! Crossing the alley, just round this lovely shop, you can reach the riverside “Lungarno” with Ponte Vecchio on your left.

Just few steps..and it starts one of the most beautiful and fashion streets of Florence: “Via de Tornabuoni” where you can find the most famous griffes worldwide known as Gucci, Prada, Giorgio Armani, Christian Dior, Hermès and so many others. On the left side there is the seat of the prestigious maison “Salvatore Ferragamo”.

The strategic location allows you to reach any historical monument, museum or old town centre area you wish…just walking, for example: Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery, the Cathedral and its Giotto tower bell, Signoria Palace, Pitti Palace and so on…

Everything to let you have a suggestive stay in Florence…

Owner info

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
In the middle of the town's medioeval area, the apartment is very calm and the street is suggestive. A small church with its archaic Roman forms is just behind the corner, in Piazzetta del Limbo. The church holds the flint that Pazzino de’ Pazzi brought to Florence on his way back from the first crusade (1099). The stone was used to distribute the sacred fire to the inhabitans of Florence in the traditional Cerimony of the Explosion of the Cart on Easter, to light the dove-shaped rocket (called Colombina) that hits the cart. Around the corner you will find the palace of the famous fashion house Ferragamo and, in a few steps, you will reach Via Tornabuoni, which is overlooked by the windows of the biggest names in Italian fashion. In the historical center of Florence, thanks to many pedestrian streets, is pleasant to walk and discover the little details. You can feel the atmosphere of the Renaissance churches and palaces of the old families of the city.
