General overview

What can I say about Florence? Cradle of art, culture and beauty, cradle of the Italian Renaissance, destination for millions of tourists every year. And thanks to its central location, Florence could also be the starting point for day trips to other famous Tuscan cities such as Pisa, Lucca, Arezzo Siena, Cinque Terre. using the high-speed railway line, even Rome - 1.30 hour journey - or Venice - 2 hours - are possible destinations. Our apartment is close to the historic centre, reachable by public transport in 10 minutes (frequency 4 minutes). The train station is also 10 minutes away. It is also possible to reach it on foot with a pleasant walk of about 30 minutes. We recommend our house to those who want to visit the beauties of the historic center of Florence but also stroll around the other wonderful places in Tuscany (Lucca, Siena, Pisa, Chianti...) by car,

Neighbourhood

The neighborhood is a typical Italian neighborhood, where the Florentines live and work. The apartment is located in one of the most important districts of the metropolitan city of Florence, the Rifredi district. Here is the main hospital of Florence, Careggi, three university poles of medical, scientific and political disciplines, the open-air shopping center "Piazza Dalmazia", supermarket, banks, etc.; but also the rolling hills where it is possible to visit the Medici country villas or eat in one of the many restaurants located in the small villages facing Florence; or the Stibbert museum, with one of the most important collections of ancient armor in the world.

Fulvio

We live in Tuscany. Our main house in Florence and a second house in Sassetta, near the sea, could be exchanged. We are looking for families who appreciate the true value of the exchange: making new friends everywhere! We have been exchanging homes on other platforms since 2007, with more than 30 exchanges done in the past, all of which are wonderful memories.
