Area
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.

Parking
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.

Reviews

  • 4.4/5 My wife and I stayed here for 12 days in June and absolutely loved it. 94 steps up to the apartment but it's well worth it once you see the view from the terrace. Very modern interior, all the appliances are modern and clean. One big bonus is the dressing room, loads of storage and keeps the rest of the apartment clutter free. But it's the terrace why we booked the apartment and we weren't dissapointed. Superb uninterrupted views of the Duomo, along with both palaces and numerous churches. The barbecue is a massive bonus when self catering, there can't be too many places in Florence where you can have a barbecue overlooking the Duomo. One small downside to the terrace was the steep metal staircase going up, a little precarious but still well worth it. In terms of location we found it perfect. 2 minutes from Ponte Vecchio and next to the palace. Loads of restaurants and coffee shops, and being south of the river we found it less touristy than North of the river. One of the best restaurants we found (4 leoni) is on the next street and well worth a visit. So to summarise, bit of a trek to get up to the apartment, but well worth it once you're up there.
  • 4.4/5 We absolutely loved our recent apartment rental in Florence. The apartment sits just steps away from the Pitti Palace on a small side street flanked with charming artisanal shops. To get to the apartment, you need to climb 5 flights (no lift), but that really wasn't an issue for us. Alessandro met us promptly upon check in and answered all of our questions. He was very accomodating and friendly. The apartment was top notch. The unit was exceptionally clean, updated and well equipped with the ammenities needed for a comfortable week's stay. The a/C worked like a dream and at night, you could open the shutters in each room for a panoramic view of the city. The private rooftop terrace was lovely and even included a charcoal grill and comfortable outdoor seating. We had amazing 360 degree views at every point of the day -- Santa Spirito to the left, The Duomo just ahead and the Pitti Palace to our right. We would definitely stay in this apartment again. Thank you Windows on Italy
