The apartment is located in the Oltrarno district in Florence’s historic city. The name “Oltrarno” literally means “beyond the Arno” and this district which stretches along the south bank of the river represents a different facet of Florence to that which is found near the Duomo. The Oltrarno perhaps displays the true character of Florence and in general is slightly quieter, greener and more relaxed than the other districts of Florence. Indeed many tourists tend to choose the Oltrarno for this reason. Traditionally an artisans’ quarter, the Oltrarno still boasts today many lovely antique shops and artisans’ studios (particularly furniture and leather-workers) and Via Maggio remains the focus of Florence’s thriving antiques trade.
Over time the Oltrarno became a rather chic area and many aristocrats chose this neighbourhood to build their villas and palaces, the largest of these being the Pitti Palace, which became the home of the various Grand Dukes. Today this sumptuous palace houses several important museums which rank amongst the best in Florence. Other major sights the Oltrarno has to offer are the Cappella Brancacci with the fabulous frescoes of Masaccio, Piazzale Michelangelo with its breath-taking views over Florence, the magnificent church of San Miniato, (one of the highest points in the city of Florence and also one of the best examples of Romanesque architecture within Tuscany) together with the most famous and oldest bridge in Florence, Ponte Vecchio, home to a glittering array of jewellery shops and goldsmiths.
Extending up the hill from the Pitti Palace are the formal Boboli Gardens, an outdoor museum of garden sculpture that includes Roman antiquities as well as 16th and 17th century works. The Oltrarno is famous for its wine bars such as Olio & Convivium, authentic trattorias serving typical Tuscan cuisine, including Il Santo Bevitore, I 4 Leoni and Il Magazzino, not to mention the wonderful fresh produce market held every morning in Piazza Santo Spirito. For those choosing an apartment in this area the Oltrarno quarter also offers a choice of grocery stores, patisserie, bakeries, gift shops and much more.

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 they need access for 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.

  • 4.3/5 This modern, well appointed apartment enjoys views across the roof tops of the Santo Spirito district. On your doorstep are a range of vibrant restaurants that serve great food. In easy walk are all the major sights of Florence. The advantage of the Santo Spirito district is it is away from the tourist throng, and allows one to experience the local's life in the Piazza.
  • 4.3/5 My family and I were in Florence for 9 days. Our apartment on Via Maggio was excellent: bright and sunny, centrally located, recently renovated, and spotless ... it was the perfect place to relax after a busy day touring. The Penthouse Suite where we stayed is on the top floor of a 4 story building. The elevator was handy, but we usually took the stairs to try and reduce all the effects to the gelato that we were eating. The light grey granite/marble finishes in the kitchen and bathrooms added a sophisticated feel, and the appliances and dinnerware were all relatively new. We cooked and ate at least half our meals in the apartment with ease. We had a terracota-tile terrace with a gorgeous view of the Pitti Palace, and to a lesser degree, the Duomo. We would highly recommend this apartment. However, we do have 2 suggestions that would have made our stay even better: 1) The linens and towels could be improved on. The towels were slightly on the small side and somewhat thin, and we would have appreciated duvets on the beds, instead of blankets. 2) The apartment did not have any cleaning supplies when we arrived. It would have been a nice touch if we hadn't had to have run out to the supermarket after a long journey of traveling to buy cleaning essentials. Otherwise, the staff who assisted us were excellent and were very responsive to questions and requests that we had.This is a great apartment and well worth the expense.
