HELLO! Only 150 yards from Ponte Vecchio and 247 yards from Uffizi Gallery! A pleasant, recently renovated apartment with two fully-equipped, windowed bathrooms on the ground floor of an ancient thirteenth Tower building. It sleeps four people
Only 137 metres (150 yards) from Ponte Vecchio and 204 metres (247 yards) from Palazzo Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery, this recently renovated apartment is located on the ground floor of an ancient twelfth-century tower building.
It sleeps four people plus a baby as we can also provide a cot.
Right in the historic heart of Florence, the apartment consists of an entrance hall leading onto a small but well-equipped kitchen with induction hot plates, refrigerator and freezer, microwave oven, a Nespresso coffee machine, kettle and toaster.
The double bedroom has a LED TV set and a walk-in wardrobe with a fully-equipped, windowed en-suite bathroom with bath.
There are two divans in the living room that are actually real beds with top-quality mattresses, plus a second digital terrestrial and satellite LED TV set.
From the living room, access is gained to a second fully-equipped, windowed bathroom with shower alcove.
Zugang für Gäste
The entire historic centre of Florence is in itself a huge work of art with a myriad of splendid museums to be visited... such as the Uffizi, the Duomo with Giotto's Bell Tower, Palazzo Vecchio with Arnolfo's Tower, Ponte Vecchio... and famous palazzos such as Palazzo Strozzi and Palazzo Pitti. You can walk everywhere in this city which is filled with numerous different restaurants, beautiful fashion and luxury-item stores, as well as small craftsmen's workshops where the trades are handed down from father to son.
If you reach Florence by train ( Santa Maria Novella train station) you need less than 10 minutes by taxi to be in front of our apartment. If you arrive in Florence, at Amerigo Vespucci airport (Peretola - Firenze) by plane you need around 20 - 25 minutes by taxi. You will not need to take any public transport to see Florence - everything is at your fingertips as the apartment is right in the middle of the historic centre. In any case, there are small electric buses that connect the centre of Florence with the urban bus network that covers all the suburbs and the outskirts.
If you are driving into Florence by car, only 80 metres away from the apartment in the same street, Via delle Terme, there is Garage delle Terme (where you pay directly), which allows entry with your car even into the limited-traffic zone of the city.

Hello everyone, we joined the great Airbnb website, 31 August 2014.
Fabio and I have been married for a lifetime and as we are now both retired, we prefer to live in the country where we like tending to our garden, cultivating our vegetable garden and having a dip in the pool.
My husband has also managed to produce a good wine, which is natural and only contains our own grapes. A tiny production for ourselves and our friends. Our extra-virgin olive-oil production also allows us to meet our own needs with some left over for our connoisseur friends!!!
Our greatest results... though certainly not thanks to us, but to our daughter-in-law Mirta and son Francesco, are our two grand-daughters, Chantal and Charmaine!!!
Still not satisfied with all this, and having the chance to purchase this apartment, we decided to put it on the tourist market in order to rent it to travellers who appreciate our city with its collection of art treasures, old craftsmen workshops, and also the stores of the most beautiful and world-famous fashion houses and internationally renowned luxury items.
All accompanied by wonderful restaurants that offer the best in Tuscan cuisine.
I worked for many years for an important international company and this allowed me to travel extensively and to get to know other countries.
For this reason, I believe I am aware of the priorities that every traveller is seeking in hotels and apartments. For me the cleaning of the apartment in the finest detail is a priority, as well as the comfort and furnishings of the apartment that must always meet up to what has been promised. The central position of our apartment is a big attraction, and we try to give a personalised welcome to all our guests.
I hope that whoever chooses to stay here will leave their comments in the guest book in the living room. So far, all comments have been very positive and this encourages us to make our apartment even more welcoming.
If you have been tenacious enough to read this far, I must thank you sincerely for your attention. I can only confirm that Florence and all of Tuscany are really beautiful and absolutely worth visiting regardless of where you decide to stay.
Warm wishes from Fabio and Maria Cesira
