The historic centre of Florence attracts millions of tourists each year and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982. Florence is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and its artistic, historic and cultural heritage and impact in the world remains vast up to this day. The historic centre of Florence contains numerous elegant piazzas, Renaissance palazzi, academies, parks, gardens, churches, monasteries, museums, art galleries and ateliers. The city boasts a wide range of collections of art, especially those held in the Pitti Palace and the Uffizi, (which receives about 1.6 million tourists a year). Florence is arguably the best-preserved Renaissance city in the world and is regarded by many as the art capital of Italy. It has been the birthplace or chosen home of many notable historical figures, such as Dante, Boccaccio, Giotto, Botticelli, Machiavelli, Brunelleschi, Michelangelo, Donatello, Cellini, Vespucci, Galileo, Collodi, Meucci. Respected 20th century Florentines are Gucci, Ferragamo, Cavalli, Pucci (fashion) and Benigni (actor), to name but a few.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1935

About the owner: I'm a native Florentine living with my wife and our two boys of 22 and 18. The apartment for rent is located in the same ancient building where I live and have always lived. We take pride in our property, are responsive to your needs and we deal with you directly – from key exchanges, to cleaning, to repairs, and anything in between. You’ll feel at home and you’ll have Florence at your feet!

Why the Owner Chose San Niccolò, Firenze, Italy:
This ancient building was purchased by my grandfather Michelangiolo in 1935. I was born here and have always lived at this address, except for my college years in the USA. A very useful elevator was added in 1974. This property was passed down through the generations and currently I own four of its nine apartments. I have lived in this apartment since I married Cinzia in 1988; we decided to renovate and rent it in 2014, when I we moved to a larger apt on the 4th floor. In August 2015 we began renovating another large apt on the 3rd floor, aiming to expand our tourist rentals from April 2016 onwards. A third apt, also on the 3rd floor will be renovated by spring 2017.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Excellent location in one of the most charming areas of the city, one block from the Arno River. Walking distance to everything you want to see in Florence but also equidistant to lest touristy local restaurants, and quiet enough for a good night's sleep. The wifi works great and all the appliances are high quality, plus you also get that pleasant feeling of Italy of yesterday. Bedrooms either feature a decorated ceiling or a breathtaking view, and are furnished with fixtures of exquisite workmanship. Owners live in same building, speak English and are always available.
