Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Tuscany is truly a world apart, with its beautiful cities, breathtaking landscapes, art treasures, heavenly food and wine...

Florence is not only art and museums. The fun in Florence never ends: classical theatres or theatres with original performances, cinemas, disco clubs, pubs, wine bars attract a lively crowd all night long. The city is also an active cultural centre and organizes exhibitions and art or music festivals and folklore. The entertainment options are varied and exciting like half-day or full-day sightseeing tours and bike tours.

Florence features some wonderful Italian restaurants. Not only do they offer great Italian cuisine, many are situated in picturesque piazzas and other attractive locations. Florence is very famous for the bistecca alla fiorentina (florentine beef steak), the ribollita (traditional tuscan soup , the trippa (tripe). Tuscany is famous all over the world for its valuable and precious wines.

Central Florence

The area where is located the Uffizi Apartament has plenty of shops, restaurants, pizza-shops, coffee bars, italian fast food where you can taste a great panino (sandwich) and a glass of Chianti! Here are some tips.

In the same street as the apartment is a recently opened wine shop that offers a vast range of Tuscan delicatessen like local cheeses (pecorino di Pienza) and cold cuts (such as salumi di cinta senese), all artisan-made. Around the corner, you can have lunch at Cafè Lambertesca - buffet freddo which serves breakfasts (cappuccino and brioches), hot first courses and second dishes at lunch time, all made according to Florentine tradition. Opposite the Cafè Lambertesca is the Antico Fattore, an old established restaurant that in 1931 conceived a literary prize. It became a real cenacle of the florentine and italian culture. In those years the place was frequented by two future Nobel for the Italian literature: Eugenio Montale and Salvatore Quasimodo. In 1989 the Antico Fattore literary prize was awarded to Toni Morrison (pseudonym of Chloe Anthony Wofford, USA) who was later to receive the Nobel Prize for literature (1993).

Among nearby markets, we recommend Mercato del Porcellino (Porcellino's Market, also known as the Straw Market), famous for hand-made embroidery, leather goods and tradional Florentine crafts. For grocery shopping, do not miss the central S. Lorenzo Market, where you can find everything you need: meat, fish, vegetables, fruits and the best tuscan and italian cheeses.

As for historical cafés, you must visit the Caffè Paszkowski: the beauty of the indoor sitting areas in early '900 style is an ideal frame to taste a good tea or a house appetizer. In 1991 it has been declared an Italian National Monument. In the same square you'll also find Caffè Gilli, the only surviving Belle Époque coffee house in Florence today. In the warm season you can sit at one of the tables outside on piazza della Repubblica, where musicians play classical music and romantic songs: enjoy the famous Italian Café Concerto!

At the apartment, english books about art and architecture of Florence are available for your enjoyment. You'll also find an up-to-date listing of all the city's events and exhibitions and a guide with the owner's tips about restaurants and shopping.

“Wonderful”

Reviewed 5 May 2015

Wow this apartment was gorgeous. Beautifully decorated, spacious, everything was spotless. Having a washing machine, coffee maker with coffee provided and a lovely bottle of wine made all the difference. Location was fantastic, right next to uffizi, plenty of restaurants, bars and shops nearby. Very fast and reliable wifi. Short walk to all the sites - would definitely stay here again. Thank you rosella. We will never forget Florence.

“La mia casa a Firenze”

Reviewed 1 Jan 2013

Yes, this was definitely my home while in Florence. From the moment I met Rossella and we went into the apartment I loved it. It was warm and homely. There were 2 bookshelves crammed with books on Florence to read up on before heading out to see for real and of course, recipe books. Rossella has a folder with information about local shops, how to shop for groceries, telephone number for English speaking doctor, how to call for an ambulance if need be. She really has thought of everything. She gave me a discount voucher for a restaurant around the corner from the apartment which was valid for my whole stay if I wanted. There was a bottle of Chianti wine and a packet of Florentine coffee as gifts. The bedroom and bathroom were upstairs. The bedroom was very comfortable with windows that opened up to the rear of nearby buildings and behind the apartment was the Auditorium S. Stefano al Ponte Vecchio which had concerts each night I was there and if I opened the windows I could hear the beautiful music in the apartment. I went to a concert on my last night in Florence. Other than the beautiful music, there was no other noise and because there is no traffic in the street, was very peaceful. The apartment has a small front loader washing machine which was fantastic and saved an hour or so sitting in a laundromat. Rossella has a fold up clothes airer which, because the bedroom was so large, was not in the way, and my washing dried quite quickly without the need for a clothes dryer. There is an iron and I think there may have been an ironing board but I didn't need to use either. There are even large umbrellas in the entry hall. Rossella even provides laundry washing powder , handwash and bath/shower foam. The kitchen is small with a small fridge, microwave and 2 electric hotplates. There is also a toaster and stove top espresso coffee pot which I used more than anything. The sitting room is cosy with a sofa which can be folded out to make a double bed. There is a dining table with 6 chairs and a lovely sideboard. There is a TV and DVD/CD player and excellent wifi which I used for my iPad with no difficulties. Throughout the apartment there are prints, statues and lamps that ooze "homely". The location is perfect, literally a minute's walk from the front door to the Uffizi in one direction and the Ponte Vecchio in the other. Because of the location it was so easy to walk around and pop back to the apartment for a toilet break and yet another coffee, which of course is self defeating. Rossella came back to the apartment the day before my departure and brought me more gifts to take home to remind me of Florence. My experience in Florence in Casa di Rossella was perfect, I just wish it was mine!!

“LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION”

Reviewed 5 Apr 2012

Most of Floence's most famous landmarks on your doorstep. Out of the front door you are facing the Uffizi Gallery across the street, with the entrance around the corner. Under the arch at the end of the street below Cosimo de Medici's Vasari Corridor are the River Arno and the Ponte Vecchio. If Doctor Who came to Florence, this is surely where the Tardis would appear!! The duplex apartment is a wonderful homely base, and you never saw anywhere more comprehensibly equipped. Rosella has thought of everything you could possibly need. Needless to say, we'll be back.
