Owner info

Year Purchased: 1964

About the owner: This is me, Alessandra, the owner and home manager of the apartment. I grew up in the area. I still remember when cars and motorbikes were allowed to cross the Ponte Vecchio. So many things have changed since then, but not our bridge, a milestone in the life of every Florentine.

Why the Owner Chose Palazzo Pitti (Florence, Italy):
This is a special place, it belongs to my family since 1964. It used to be the place where my parents worked together for 40 years. We decided to turn it into an apartment to share it with people who can understand an appreciate its value.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
A unique viewpoint on the city. The apartment is located in one of the most characteristic areas in town. It is at a walking distance from all the major points of interest.
