Florence, Tuscany
This is the flat where I grew up my children and that I've loved and still do.
I am sure you will love too.
It is very spacious with a big lounge and dining area, a big kitchen fully equipped and where I often spend hours cooking meals that I will then enjoy with my children and grandchildren, either for a Sunday lunch or for a special occasion.
I am sure that who loves to cook will appreciate this kitchen, but who will rather dine out, won't be disappointed with the wide range of restaurants of the city.
Going on towards the other 'wing' of the apartment you will find a spacious double bedroom plus a single bedroom which is accessible through a room used now as laundry/wardrobe room. There is an additional bedroom which is not accessible to guests were I store my belongings.
Plus, three bathrooms: one that presents only...

This delightful apartment was located within easy walking distance of all major attractions (e.g. 5 min. to Il Duomo, 10 min. to Uffizi). Very close to the Central Market, making it easy to stop for great pizza or pasta and a glass of wine on...More

About the neighbourhood
In the heart of the historical neighbourhood of San Lorenzo, once famous for its handicraftsman and their typical shops (called bottega).
Just few steps from the Central Market where you can buy food and drinks of good quality for reasonable prices which is also my favourite place for the everyday groceries.
The market has two floors: the ground floor (7am/2 pm Mon/Sat) you can find fruit, veggies, meat and much more of great quality. You could also have them packed for longer trips and bring them back home to enjoy with family and friends.
On the first floor (10am/10pm Mon/Sun) you'll find all the restaurants or cafes to enjoy delicious meals from all over Italy.
With a 5 minute walk you can reach the central station of Santa Maria Novella where trains and buses from and to any d...
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Peretola aiport, Firenze: 7.5 km
Railway: Santa Maria Novella (SMN): 1.2 km
I live at 7/8 minutes walk from Firenze Santa Maria Novella (central station of Firenze- Florence). If you arrive at a different station (like Firenze Rifredi), just catch a regional train for Santa Maria Novella they run every 5/10 minutes.

1) take a cab. In 15 will bring you right at my place and about 20 Euros;
2) take a bus, called Volainbus, that will bring you directly at the station in 20 minutes. The stop is the third, called Stazione Galleria. Ticket costs 6 euros (10 return), you can buy it directly on the bus without any charge. It runs every half an hour from 6 am till 11:30 pm (eg 6, 6:30, 7 and so on). The way back is from 5:00 am through 11:00 pm
