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, not forgetting the magnificent Santa Croce church and museum. You will also enjoy the largest selection of boutique shops, bars and typical 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 options. By night, Santa Croce becomes one of the liveliest parts of town and with its pedestrianised 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, laundrettes and individual gift shops as well as being adequately served by the local public transport service.

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.

  • 4.4/5 We had an absolutely wonderful stay at our Florence home (Visconti). From our first contact with Bettina, she was responsive, courteous and VERY helpful. She made using AirBnB for the first time very easy and smooth for us. I hope all my other experiences with AirBnB are as good as our relations with Bettina! Although we never formally met, I felt like she got to know what we liked, recommended it and stay in touch throughout the process. If you're staying it Italy, make sure you reach out to Bettina!
  • 4.7/5 We enjoyed the apartment and the location. A major issue for us, however, was the condition of the single-bed mattresses, which were very unforgiving and hard. When we complained, the issue was taken care of immediately with the delivery of padded mattress toppers, which helped tremendously. We were most grateful and appreciative of the quick response. The kitchen is well equipped and fun to work in. We cooked on a number of occasions and thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the outside terrace and taking in the wonderful views. A minor quibble would be the kitchen sink, which took forever to drain and was awkward to reach, and the age and state of the dishwasher. These are small things, though, compared to our enjoyment of the apartment and the ease with which we could access the iconic sites of Florence. We lived at Visconti for 12 days and were quite fit by the end of our stay given the number of stairs we had to climb to reach it. The stairs might prove an impediment for some but we approached them as a daily challenge!
