The region

We have another house in Lucca another beautiful Tuscan city you can organize trips combined for a tour of Tuscany.

The roots of all are in Tuscany - from large to small things. In Piero della Francesca's fresco is the spirit of a region that has spent most of his money to beauty and quality. The perfection of the Tuscan culture can be found in a bowl of Ribollita soup , made with cabbage and served with seasonal oil d ' olive oil freshly squeezed , or tasted in a bottle of Brunello di Montalcino Riserva ; but it can also be found in one of the many free delights of the region , its landscape painting , its thermal water reservoirs , or some of its beaches still poorly understood.

These things are not present in the rest of Italy, but Tuscany has a unique concentration of them. It also combines fierce pride and attention to detail , such as the protection of the territory, complex and irritating but also simple and basic to conservation of the region.

Tuscany is a collection of cities, Siena, Arezzo , Pisa, Lucca , Cortona , each outstanding for its harmony and beauty. Then there are villages, villas, countryhouse, farmhouse, cottage that tell a ancient rural life. This great man's work is identified with the epic landscape.

The area

Florence is the birthplace of the Renaissance and this is seen looking around everywhere, while you walk in the historic center. Great artists were born and worked here, Giotto, Brunelleschi, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo. The genes of the Renaissance were here at home and have left their mark exceptional. Frescoes by Giotto, the dome and the Palaces of Brunelleschi, the David and other sculptures by Michelangelo, the paintings of Leonardo da Vinci and Botticelli.

When you arrive in Florence there's so much exquisite art and architecture, it's difficult to know where to start.

But Florence is a vibrant city, full of fantastic restaurants and a lively nightlife and a vivacious cultural movement that goes beyond the old masters to embrace opera, classical music and contemporary art. Beautiful, historic, full of sophisticated shops and quality craftsmanship, and close to the vine hills of the Chianti region, Florence is one of the most sought after tourist destinations in Europe.

The district

Oltrarno is the neighborhood on the other side of the river, the Florence of Florence. In it survive artisans who seek to preserve their ancestral experience. This area is still alive and handed down traditions, this you can comprises walking for its small medieval streets. It 'a piece of old Florence which survives.

About Maria

I am the owner of this apartment and I love it intensely, it reflects my wonderful city. I would like that also my guests learn to know and love both the ancient town and my home. I bought it two decades ago and this was an act of love towards Florence. It is a few steps from Ponte Vecchio and Palace Pitti in a building of antique structures and characteristics. In this house and around it you breath an atmosphere of ancient beauty, from which you are fascinated and you can not leave it anymore.

Maria purchased this apartment in 20

Why Maria chose Florence

The apartment is located in the historic center of Florence in a quiet but full of life area, with antique craft shops and typical restaurants Florentines. The location is extremely advantageous because it allows you to visit on foot the city and its beauty. Palazzo Pitti is fifty meters, the Uffizi to a few hundred, the Boboli Gardens is also very close. In the same way it is close to the Ponte Vecchio, the Palazzo Vecchio and Piazza della Signoria. The rest of the historic city can be visited without effort just walking in the ancient streets. Leaving the entrance door of this house Florence is there at your fingertips.

What makes this apartment unique

Florence is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, its squares, its churches, its buildings, its museums, its embankment, its sights, tell us a story rich in treasures of art and culture that does not end ever to fascinate us as the song of its poets.

This home allows you to enjoy all these things immediately. All this is in and out of the front door.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

The location would be hard to beat: it was close to all major attractions (no taxis required) and nice restaurants, everything is on your fingertips.

The apartment itself was amazing with its old structure and was as pictured. It included all of the little bits and pieces that make life easy when traveling (laundry detergent, fridge, full kitchen and cooking utensils). A place where you could feel right at home. If I were to return to Firenze I would certainly try and stay there again and I would highly recommend it.

We enjoyed a beautiful stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as described, it was very clean, well kept and charming in your features and the location was amazing. We could walk to everywhere we wanted to go in Florence. The area was lovely, with some delightful coffee shops and restaurants nearby. The host made check-in very easy, gave us some excellent recommendations and also offered to call a taxi for us on check-out day, which was greatly appreciated given the language barrier. Would definitely recommend this apartment and would stay here again next time we visit beautiful Florence.
