Gaia is a 1 bedroom apartment rental with a terrace located near the Porta al Prato area. It is ideal for short term rentals that wish to rent a car, as its location is very reachable by vehicle. It can comfortably accommodate up to 3 people and has 1 bathroom.

The apartment Gaia (with elevator) is located on the third floor of a building on Via Porte Nuove, a fairly busy road that leads to Porta al Prato. The apartment is perfect for anyone who does not wish to be in the city center of Florence or who is attending a conference or an exhibition as Florence’s main exhibition centre, Fortezza da Basso is less than a 5 minute walk away. The apartment is located on the far side of the building and does not look onto the main street below which makes the apartment very quiet and this is not always easy to come by when in Florence. The guests will find many shops, bars and restaurants as well as the main cultural attractions in the old quarter of Florence just 30 minutes by foot or an easy 5 minute tram ride away. The (60 sq.m / 645 sq.ft) apartment has 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom and can sleep up to 3 people with a pouf bed (more suitable for children). The spacious and bright living room, the dining area and the kitchen look on the furnished terrace. The bedroom has a king size bed (which cannot be separated into two singles) and a bathroom with shower. The apartment is very cozy and has traditional Florentine tiled cotto floors and wooden beamed ceilings.

The apartment is located just outside the main historical centre of Florence within the area called Porta al Prato. This area of Florence is a 20-30 minute walk or a 5 minute tram or bus journey to the main cultural attractions such as the Uffizi Gallery, the Duomo, the Bargello Museum, Piazza della Signoria and Palazzo Vecchio. The Porta al Prato area is mainly residential so there is a variety of grocery stores, bakeries, supermarkets, restaurants, bars and cafes. In the area you will also find the Porta al Prato railway station (hourly train links to Empoli), the “Stazione Leopolda”, Florence’s former railway station which has been converted into a vibrant exhibition hall used for events such as craft fairs, television and fashion shows and also cultural and business meetings. The Parco delle Cascine, Florence’s largest public park popular with walkers, joggers, horse riders and families, is just 5 minutes away by foot.

The Florence city center is a ZTL zone which means a limited traffic zone and therefore special rules apply to entering this area. This particular apartment is not located within the ZTL which is an advantage, meaning that driving to the apartment and parking nearby is fairly easy. Near the apartment you will find adequate street parking, which you will pay for between approximately 8:00 am to 8:00 pm. When seeking street parking please note that you must park in blue lined spots as the white lined ones are for resident permit use only. Parking costs vary within the city with the highest charges being found towards the centre of Florence. If you prefer, you can park in a private garage or choose one of the several underground parking lots.
