Further details outdoors

Florence city centre is a ZTL zone which means a “limited traffic zone” and therefore special rules apply to when you can enter 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 drive around and park, then you will need to pay special attention to the road signs, CCTV cameras and access cameras (they will show either a red/green light) in order to avoid receiving fines. Guests who need to travel within the ZTL zone by car to reach their apartment are advised to contact one of the private garages in the centre and obtain a temporary access permit. Upon arrival at the garage, guests must specify they need access for the ZTL and the garage will then note the vehicle's number plate and forward it to the appropriate police headquarters.

On the other side of the Studio there's a private garage on payment, others garages are present in the near by, 3 minutes walk from the studio there's Sant'Ambrogio Parking a cover parking where you can hire also bikes.

If you want to reserve a garage voucher for 4 days, please inform me, the cost is € 85,00 and is available for Sant'Ambrogio Parking and for Beccaria parking, all the parkings are 3/5 minutes walk from the holiday studio.

The inner courtyard is a magnificient place where you can admire frescoes of the XVIII century, is shared with the owners of the house.

About this location

The Tuscany region

Tuscany is a wonderful region and eclectic, you can visit its beautiful townes rich of art like Florence, Pisa, Livorno Arezzo, Siena, Cortona each with its own characteristics and beauty, you can go to the mountains, Monte Amiata Abetone or in Garfagnana or our forests, or you can visit the marble quarries in Carrara, or dive into the sea of ??Versilia with its exclusive placesas Viareggio and Forte de Marmi, or taste an excellent glass of Chianti in Chiantishire ... this is Tuscany!

The holiday studio is located in the district of Sant'Ambrogio definitely one of the most liveable neighborhoods in the city. From this district it's only a ten-minute walk to all the major monuments, squares and museums of the city. And yet, due to its location just outside of the most heavily-touristed areas - it hasn't been overrun by mass tourism.

Along the streets of Sant'Ambrogio it's still possible to meet many 'real Florentines' - walking, shopping or simply chatting on the stairs of a church, on a park bench, in a market, or amidst the narrow streets. Almost all of the area's streets are closed to traffic and this makes the district even more attractive for both tourists and residents. One of the most representative monuments of the district is the beautiful synagogue located in Via Farini, built in 1882 by Florence's Jewish community. Also interesting is the simple and harmonious Sant'Ambrogio Church, located in the most lively square and representing the heart of the district.

Florence SinagogueSant'Ambrogio is especially well-known among Florentines for its indoor and outdoor daily markets. Every morning in Piazza Ghiberti the 'Sant'Ambrogio' market is held, a great alternative to local supermarkets (both in terms of quality and prices), where you can find typical cheeses and meats, fresh fruits and vegetables as well as articles of clothing, whilst immersed in the very characteristic atmosphere of an authentic Italian market.

In Piazza dei Ciompi (100 meters from Piazza Ghiberti) the flea market is held (open daily except Sunday and Monday in winter) where it's possible to find all kinds of unusual antiques and collectibles at budget prices. And in this same square, on the last Sunday of every month, there's a high-quality (with prices to match!) 'Antique Market' that is very interesting to visit, even if only to browse.

The entire district is characterized by a long antiques tradition and, walking through the streets of Sant'Ambrogio, you'll be surprised by the quantity of beautiful antiquarian shops located on every corner.

NIGHTLIFE - Sant'Ambrogio is famous among Florentines for the quality of its restaurants (Cibreo, De Macci, Giova), pizzerias (Le Campane, Il Pizzaiuolo), and for the presence of very cool and trendy bars like Caffé Sant'Ambrogio (a great place to meet friends for coffee or a cocktail or linger while studying), YAG (a hip local gay bar) and Bar Le Murate (Set in the open space of a former women's prison. Absolutely to visit. Open only in spring and summer).

A special mention must also be made for the local cafés: Café Cibreo and Café Piansa have been ranked amongst the Top Ten Italian Cafés thanks to their excellent coffee.
