The apartment is 60 meters from the Ponte Vecchio or Old Bridge, one of the most famous Florentine landmarks, and looks directly onto the river Arno. On the opposite bank of the river is the Uffizi museum complex and the famous Vasari Corridor, which connects the Palazzo Vecchio to the Uffizi and across the Ponte Vecchio to the Pitti Palace.
Across the road is a perfectly furnished small supermarket and all around there are excellent restaurants, cafés, wine bars, fashion shops and artisans’ workshops. With just a few minutes’ walk, you can reach all the principal monuments and museums, including the Uffizi museum; the Palazzo Pitti museums and the Boboli gardens; the Piazza della Signoria with the magnificent Palazzo Vecchio as well as the Duomo or Cathedral. You can also stroll along the riverbanks admiring the city and the surrounding hills.
About the apartment.
The 'Ponte Vecchio relax' apartment is on the 2nd floor of a recently fully refurbished building with all the windows overlooking the river Arno. It has two rooms plus a spacious bathroom for a total area of approximately 400 sq. ft.
As all the windows look onto the river and none face the street, the apartment is extremely silent even when the windows are left open. It is served by a newly installed elevator and each room has central heating and air conditioning. Furthermore the floor is entirely in oak parquet except for the bathroom where the use of tiles has been preferred.
When you enter the apartment there is a small hall and to the left you access the ample bedroom with a king size double bed. From the centre of the hall you enter the large bathroom equipped with a shower and where you will also find the washing machine. On the opposite side of the hall from the bedroom you find the living room with an equipped kitchen that can be closed out of sight when not used. The kitchen is equipped with a microwave oven; an under counter refrigerator; a dishwasher and a two fire induction hob. A toaster and coffee pot are also present. In the living room the comfortable sofa can be opened up to reveal a sofa double bed.

Perfect location with everything you need and the most amazing VIEW!
Lovely apartment close to everything and very well equipped with all you need for a delightful stay in Florence. The apartment was clean, well layed out, bright and quiet (except for the singing busker on the bridge on Friday night, but delightful all the same). The owner was quick to respond, efficient and helpful when needed. The wine bar downstairs has a fabulous selection (would highly suggest the Brunello tasting - amazing deal at only 20€) and a full grocery store across the street made getting all you needed a breeze. We will stay there again for sure! Thank you Benedetta!!
We never took so many pictures anywhere we have been. The view is amazing, you wake to the church bells ringing, and can hear musicians at night on the bridge.
We felt like we were in another time. The bed is comfy. Shower strong. Owners were very accommodating, helping us get our WiFi working. A very special place.
Lovely Apartment Stay in a Fantastic Location
We were extremely pleased with the apartment being within steps of a wine shop, cafe, and grocery store. From this location, you will be within comfortable walking distance to most every restaurant, shop, attraction, and museum in Florence. The apartment was clean and very well kept with each window providing a wonderful view and excellent light. The host, Benedetta, was super thoughtful and responsive to our every need. We sincerely enjoyed our stay here!
Just what we were looking for a great place to just enjoy Florence
Would stay again
Beautiful modern and spacious apt overlooking Arno river
Had a very pleasant stay in this wonderful modern, clean and tastefully decorated apt. Has all the amenities you might need and the view is just beautiful. You're right near the Ponte Vecchio Bridge and walking distance to all major sight seeings. The owners were super helpful and accommodating. The only downfall is mosquitos, but that's to be expected when right on the water. Overall, it surpassed all my expectations.
A Room with a View!
What a charming apartment this is overlooking the Arno with delightful views. Even though it's modern and is tastefully designed with a sleek, efficient kitchenette area and bathroom, you still feel you're in an old world true Florentine setting. A firm king size bed and handy dual sided wardrobe worked perfectly for two in the bedroom. Our wonderful host, Benedetta, greeted us at the apartment even though our flight was delayed, and even arranged to accept our luggage that was lost and delivered the next day so we could spend the day sightseeing. She also arranged for taxis a few times for us. I loved this apartment!
