External Description:
The Benci Suite apartment is located on the first floor, without elevator (20 steps) in a cozy historical building in the heart of Florence, within walking distance from the famous Santa Croce Square, famous for the wonderful Florentine Romanesque church. Nearby you can also admire the Pazzi Chapel, masterpiece of Brunelleschi, the Signoria Square, Ponte Vecchio, and many other important museums.

Internal Description:
Apartment (45 sqm) made up of one double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower. As you enter from the entrance door you'll find the small living room with a single sofa-bed, where you can also admire the refined interior design. In the same room there is a dining table and a kitchenette. The dining and living rooms are divided by two different kinds of pavement: parquet and decorated ceramic. Passing through a wooden and coloured glass door you reach the bedroom, with a double bed (180 cm) not dividable, with a complete ensuite bathroom and a small wardrobe. Air conditioning is available in the living-dining room and in the bedroom.
In the same street of the apartment is located a Wash & Dry laundry.

Our Opinion:
This apartment is perfect for some friends or for a couple not only dreaming of discovering Florence on foot and visit its beautiful museums and its art, but also aiming to live Florence by night starting from discovering the exclusive club that is just a step away from the property. Everything is reachable on foot like the train station that will allow you to also visit the rest of Tuscany or even explore Italy if you are in the mood. Given its small size, this apartment is not recommended for medium or long-term rentals.
Please note that there is a pub downstairs therefore the apartment can be noisy at night.

Area:
The apartment is located in the Santa Croce district on the eastern edge of Florence’s historic city centre. The area takes its name from one of the city’s most remarkable churches. The Santa Croce neighbourhood provides a rare glimpse of “old” Florence with lively markets and tiny leather and artisan workshops, including the flea market (Mercato delle Pulci) at Piazza dei Ciompi. The Mercato St. Ambrogio, the city’s second main food market after the Mercato San Lorenzo, is within close walking distance too.
Furthermore, the area is just a stone’s throw from some of the city’s main cultural attractions such as the Bargello Palace, which houses one of Italy’s most important museums, the Casa Buonarroti, (the former home of Michelangelo), Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio, and Ponte Vecchio, as well as the magnificent Santa Croce church and museum.
You will also enjoy the largest selection of boutique shops, bars, and traditional restaurants and pizzerias within the city. Three of the finest and most expensive restaurants, Cibreo, Pinchiorri, and Alle Murate are located nearby. There is also a good choice of mid-priced dining options.
By night, Santa Croce becomes one of the liveliest parts of town and with its pedestrian streets and illuminated buildings it transforms into the perfect venue for an after-dinner glass of wine or evening stroll. For those choosing an apartment in this area Santa Croce offers several food stores, supermarkets, laundromats, and gift shops as well as being adequately served by the local public transportation service.

Parking:
The 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 (the one nearest the apartment you are staying in) and obtain a temporary access permit. Upon arrival at the garage, guests must specify their need for access in the ZTL and the garage will then note the vehicle’s number plate and forward it to the appropriate police headquarters.

This property for rent is not a hotel, agritourism, B&B or similar, and therefore by law, extra services similar to those you may find in these types of accommodations, such as a reception, concierge or security, receiving mail, provision of meals and drinks, cleaning and change of linen during your stay, and amenity kits with soaps etc. are strictly prohibited.
