General overview

Two joint-apartments in the historic center of Florence, located in the district of Sant'Ambrogio, close to famous Piazza Santa Croce. They are completely separated, but on the same floor, ideal for a couple or two couples, not for families with children. They both have a well appointed kitchen and a bathroom each. They have about the same surface for a total of 70 square meters. The "main" apartment has been recently renovated and has a queen bed, a new bathroom and new kitchen, as well as a balcony. The "secondary" apartment is very cozy studio. It consists of a small entrance hallway, a fully equipped kitchen, a semi-separated living room/bedroom with a sofa bed sleeping two, a bathroom with shower and window, and a nice little terrace overlooking the rooftops and neighborhood, with a table and chairs, which is perfect for romantic dinners. We normally use the main apartment as a bedroom and home office and the secondary apartment as a kitchen and TV room (40" flat screen TV, with full satellite channels, Sky), but you are free to use them as they best suit you. Of course you may have just one of them, if you prefer. They are both very quiet and are on the second floor of a typical old-Florence medieval building. They both have wooden beam ceilings and parquet floors. The kitchens are both fully equipped, with fridge, oven, microwave and all small appliances. Washing machine and dishwasher are in the secondary apartment. We have a Wi-Fi Internet connection in both apartments, vintage Hi-fi stereo system with a large collection of records, CDs and books, both in Italian and English.

Neighbourhood

The apartment is located in the historic district of Sant'Ambrogio, one of the most typical in town, adjacent in the Santa Croce area and a few steps from the Galleria dell'Accademia, which houses the famous David by Michelangelo. It is 5 minute walk to Piazza del Duomo, Piazza della Signoria, the Uffizi Gallery and Ponte Vecchio, the Old Bridge which connects the historic district Oltrarno. The central railway station is also at walking distance (15 min.). The entire historic center, mostly closed to car traffic, is easily explored on foot and therefore all the monuments and major attractions are within a few minute walk. You won't need a car here. The area is well served by public transport (buses and taxis) and a Post Office is a few steps from home and open all day. The pride of the neighborhood is the Sant'Ambrogio Farmer's Market, which is still considered the best in town. You can find there local food products and clothing, and is open every morning from Monday to Saturday. A flea market with antiques is a few blocks away. The district fully preserves the spirit of Florence and at any time of day will be easy to chat with local residents in the nice and numerous small deli and grocery shops located in the area. Despite being very quiet, the neighborhood offers a wide assortment of restaurants, clubs and gatherings for drinks with friends, theaters, pubs, shops, and small supermarkets. Every night the little square of Sant'Ambrogio becomes a popular meeting place for the Florentines for drinks, dinner or chats outdoors. Florence is equally distant from Rome, Venice and Milan by train (1.30 hr) and one hour from the beach. Siena in the Chianti is also an easy daytrip.
