The Tuscany region
The region of Tuscany spreads itself out over a rich area of hills and valleys, in which world renowned agricultural treats are cultivated, such as the prestigious wine of the hills. While recognized and renowned all over the world for its cities of art such as Florence, Siena, and Pisa, and Chianti for its unique landscapes, Tuscany also boasts the sublime Tyrrhenian coasts, a treat for those who prefer to enjoy their holiday relaxing on a beautiful beach.
The apartment is located in the Oltrarno district in Florence's historic city. The name “Oltrarno” literally means “beyond the Arno” and this district which stretches along the south bank of the river represents a different facet of Florence to that which is found near the Duomo. The Oltrarno perhaps displays the true character of Florence and in general is slightly quieter, greener and more relaxed than the other districts of Florence. Indeed many tourists tend to choose the Oltrarno for this reason. Traditionally an artisans' quarter, the Oltrarno still boasts today many lovely antique shops and artisans' studios (particularly furniture and leather-workers) and Via Maggio remains the focus of Florence's thriving antiques trade.
Over time the Oltrarno became a rather chic area and many aristocrats chose this neighbourhood to build their villas and palaces, the largest of these being the Pitti Palace, which became the home of the various Grand Dukes. Today this sumptuous palace houses several important museums which rank amongst the best in Florence. Other major sights the Oltrarno has to offer are the Cappella Brancacci with the fabulous frescoes of Masaccio, Piazzale Michelangelo with its breath-taking views over Florence, the magnificent church of San Miniato, (one of the highest points in the city of Florence and also one of the best examples of Romanesque architecture within Tuscany) together with the most famous and oldest bridge in Florence, Ponte Vecchio, home to a glittering array of jewellery shops and goldsmiths.
Extending up the hill from the Pitti Palace are the formal Boboli Gardens, an outdoor museum of garden sculpture that includes Roman antiquities as well as 16th and 17th century works. The Oltrarno is famous for its wine bars such as Olio & Convivium, authentic trattorias serving typical Tuscan cuisine, including Il Santo Bevitore, I 4 Leoni and Il Magazzino, not to mention the wonderful fresh produce market held every morning in Piazza Santo Spirito. For those choosing an apartment in this area the Oltrarno quarter also offers a choice of grocery stores, patisserie, bakeries, gift shops and much more.

"Great location, great property..."
I stayed at the property with my daughter and was very satisfied. Paola and Tito answered all my questions, gave me directions to supermarkets, offered to collect us from the airport etc. There was building work at the building and Paola was very honest and upfront about how this would affect my stay. The property is furnished to a very high standard and all the furniture & fixtures are brand new. The location is perfect for walking (5 mins) to the centre of the city, but you enjoy the luxury of staying in a 'locals' neighbourhood. Prices in this neighbourhood for ice-cream, pizzas, supermarket are considerably cheaper than the centre of town. The only thing to take into consideration when booking this property is that Via de' Bardi has pretty consistent traffic - if you are a light sleeper it may be a problem.
