Ref. 15146 - Situated on the ground floor of its building, this is an original apartment just a stone's throw away from the medieval Ponte Vecchio. It's housed in a 14th-century listed building which was formerly the ancient convent of Saint Catherine.

The apartment covers a total floor space of 42m² and can comfortably accommodate up to three guests. It has been renovated in keeping with tradition, and has a rustic, authentic feel to it, thanks to its vaulted ceiling, 'Cotto' floor tiles and cleanly painted walls. The flat also benefits from wall-mounted radiators, to ensure guests' comfort, while the thick, ancient walls guarantee a quiet and cool environment during the summer.

The space comprises a kitchen, separate dining room, shower room, box room and bedroom with a queen size bed and sofa bed. The kitchen is compact but convenient; with a 4-ringed electric hob, microwave, fridge and cafetiere. The bedroom area is bright and airy, and contains a TV as well as a large wardrobe for you to store your things. Full bedding and towels are also provided.

Being so close to the city's Ponte Vecchio is a huge advantage, as you're situated right in the heart of Florence. Reaching many of the most important monuments on foot is very easy – whether you fancy taking a stroll along to the Uffizi Gallery, Piazza Signoria or the Dome.

This is a pretty, authentic and comfortable apartment with a charming appeal – ideal for a couple on holidays in Florence.

Description: This district is located to the south-east of the River Arno, with the Santo Spirito square and its beautiful church as the centre. The square was originally used by the Augustinian monks to give their sermons, to celebrate festivals and for all kinds of demonstrations. Nowadays it is home to the local market which is held every morning and with additional stalls for natural products and antiques on Sundays. In the summer months it also hosts a number of concerts and shows and is one of the liveliest squares in the district, with a very unique atmosphere of restaurants, different bars and a variety of night life. The square is also home to the Basilica of the same name, the work of Brunelleschi. Nearby is the Palazzo Guadagni (1505) which houses the Florence library on its ground floor. Further areas of interest include the Palazzo Pitti and the Boboli Gardens. The Palazzo Pitti is a remarkable renaissance building that was built by the Pitti family to rival the Medici family structure. Its interior is well worth a visit with some beautiful paintings including the works of Raffaello, Tiziano, Correggio, Rubens and Pietro da Cortona. Close at hand visitors can take a stroll through the Boboli gardens that were created as a park for the Pitti Palace, and are one of the greatest examples of Italian-style gardens, considered by many as an open-air museum. It is also an opportunity to visit one of the most surprising and strangest examples of Florentine architecture the Grotta Grande. To the west of the city, the Torquato Tasso square and the Carmine Church, is the famous location of one of the most famous renaissance works of art, the Capilla Brancacci, that was decorated by Masaccio and Masolino. Today the district of Isolotto is one of the greenest areas in Florence. It is a particularly young part of the city, especially in the west where its rural centre later grew into an industrial then a residential area. It boasts more modern architecture than the rest of the city and includes the new Florentine tram that leads directly to the city centre. A number of shopping centres are located in the area that is served by a very good public transport communication to the rest of the city.
