About the property


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.

Fabulous apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Benedetta was a fabulous host. We were warmly greeted by her mother who lives in the building, then by Benedetta who gave us great instructions on the apartment. We had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. Nespresso machine was great. The location is fantastic! Ponte Vecchio is full of shopping, dining and sightseeing. Full grocery store is only 2 minutes across street. Mamma Gina restaurant was a great choice for dinner (about 5 min walk from apartment). Uffizi gallery is just across the river and has some spectacular artwork (buy a skip the line ticket or you’ll wait in a fairly long line). All of Florence can be walked to. The Duomo tour was wonderful and if you are up for the walk up, the views are worth it. We also booked a tour to Chianti with a wine tasting at the end (we’d recommend it). Thank you Benedetta for sharing your lovely apartment with us. It was our best anniversary yet!

Great stay on the shores of the Arno

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was great, nice view and location. Had all the amenities we needed. Migi greeted us and gave us the low down, what a wonderful lady, sweet and kind. The kitchen was well stalked, we even cook one dinner. Good travel books and maps in the apartment helped with some planning. Quiet and pretty, enjoyed watching the rowers on Arno with my morning espresso. Would stay there again. Bernadette help with taxi back to train station and both were available for any of our needs.

This has got to be the best located VRBO in Florence. Much better than even the great photos show. Big, modern windows open wide in each room to a stunning view of the bustling, historic Ponte Vecchio. Each morning and night, rowers sail past and in the evenings, beautiful music drifts into the apartment. (Although, so do little mosquitos, and be forewarned that Florence isn't a quiet city at night if you have the windows open.) Inside, it's a beautifully modern and well-furnished apartment. The bed and bedding are amazing, and the shower is roomy and has great pressure, and storage is plentiful. We would have liked a drying rack to accompany the washing machine. The location is ideal for all major attractions - you can see the Uffizi from the windows, and the Pitti Palace is no further in the opposite direction. Benedetta is a superb host - staples such as milk and coffee are supplied, and champagne was even chilled and waiting! Overall, this was our best VRBO experience of many, and we would definitely stay here again.

Location Comfort Convenience WOW!

  • 5 of 5

My stay at Ponte Vecchio was absolutely fantastic!

The location of the apartment was more than I would ever have expected - less than one block to one of the most famous bridges in the world, and just within 3 blocks of the Duomo! Simply amazing!

The apartment itself is exactly as described and pictured - it is so comfortable: well equipped, ultra clean, modern in a quaint way. And the views!!!! The bridge, the river, the rowing club, the Uffizi Gallery. Wow!! Live music from the bridge most every evening!

There is a grocery/wine store just across the street - everything you could ever need!

I look forward to my next holiday in Florence, hoping this apartment will be available! Thank you Benedetta for making this stay most memorable!
