How to get to Via dell'Ardiglione:
1) In Auto, see the limitations for the ZTL (limited traffic zone) indicated in the paragraph below
2) By train, the central station of Florence (Santa Maria Novella) is about 1000 meters (5 minutes by taxi)
3) By Plane, Florence Airport is about 8 km (about 15/20 by taxi)
Limited Traffic Zone: The historic center of Florence is a ZTL zone which means a 'limited traffic zone' and, therefore, special rules apply to the access of this area. This particular apartment is in fact located within the ZTL zone so this means that if you are thinking of coming to Florence by car and wish to arrive by car, you will need to pay special attention to road signs and the cameras that restrict access to that area (will show a red or green light) in order to avoid fines. For guests who need to travel within the ZTL area by car to reach our apartment, it is advisable to contact one of the private garages in the center (the one closest to the apartment is in Piazza del Tiratoio 3 / r) and get a temporary access permit. Upon arrival at the garage, guests must specify their need to access the ZTL and the garage will write down the license plate of the vehicle and send it to the traffic police to avoid fines.
There are also well paid parking even outside the restricted traffic zone. The closest is located in Piazza del Cestello (400 meters away).
The apartment is located in the Oltrarno district, in the historic center of Florence. The 'Oltrarno' name literally means 'beyond the Arno' and this neighborhood stretches along the south bank of the river and represents a different aspect of Florence than the area surrounding the cathedral. The Oltrarno perhaps displays the true character of Florence and in general is a bit 'quieter, greener and more relaxed than the other districts of Florence. Indeed many tourists tend to choose the Oltrarno for this reason. Traditionally a neighborhood of artisans, the Oltrarno still boasts many antique shops and craft shops (in particular furniture and leather work).
Over time the Oltrarno became a rather chic area and many aristocrats chose this neighborhood to build their villas and palaces, the largest of which is the Pitti Palace, which became the seat of various Grand Dukes. Today this sumptuous palace houses several important museums which rank among the best in Florence. Other major attractions that the 'Oltrarno has to offer are: the Cappella Brancacci with its fabulous frescoes, Piazzale Michelangelo with its breathtaking view of Florence, the magnificent church of San Miniato, (one of the highest points of the city of Florence with one of the best examples of Romanesque architecture in Tuscany), together with the most famous and oldest bridge in Florence, the Ponte Vecchio, the seat of a glittering array of jewelery shops and goldsmiths.
This is up the hill from the Pitti Palace through the Boboli gardens, an outdoor museum that includes Roman antiquities and works of the 16th and 17th centuries. Melinda is famous for its wine bars and restaurants for authentic Tuscan cooking, not to mention the wonderful fresh produce market held every morning in Piazza Santo Spirito. Those who choose an apartment in this area of the Oltrarno district also have a variety of food shops, bakeries, bakeries, souvenir shops, and much more.
