Ref. 15352 - This refined 70m2 apartment is located in the historical centre of Florence just a few steps from the Ponte Vecchio and offers the ideal accommodation choice for four people. It is distributed on one floor, situated on the first floor (with a lift) of a XIV century building with views over the "Borgo San Jacopo".

This unique apartment has a very special attraction that includes a 20m2 terrace where guests will enjoy the amazing panoramic view over 5 different avenues (Via Maggio, Via dello Sprone, Borgo San Jacopo, Piazza Frescobaldi and Via di Santo Spirito) maybe a dinner under the stars, or simply relaxing in the very historical centre of Florence. The terrace is closed on one side by the XIV loggia that was renamed by the owner as the “bellosguardo” which means beautiful view. It was from here that Francisco I de Medici was able to watch his beloved Blanca Cappello, who lived in the Via Maggio Palace that in 1566 was commissioned by the Great Duke and was the work of Buontalenti (the beautiful fountain under the Aedicula is also his work).

The apartment is carefully furnished with period furniture with Florentine ceramic paving and the walls decorated with period paintings by Florentine artists.

It includes a bedroom with large spacious fitted wardrobe for luggage storage, TV, DVD player and double bed with a beautiful historical silk decorated head board ensuring that guests will have a really unforgettable experience in Florence.

The large kitchen is fitted with all mod cons, and last but not least the comfortable bathroom with bath and shower is decorated in mosaic and fitted with everything guests might need during their stay to ensure they feel completely at home.

It is the perfect accommodation choice for a really unforgettable holiday in the magnificent and historical setting of central 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.
