Quiet apartment in non-touristy Pitti area with grand piano

Condo/Apartment -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Florence, Tuscany
This is a lovely, elegant and quiet apartment, totally renovated with central heating, central AC (just installed a $10,000 system!) and with new appliances, in the heart of Florence. Yes, 7 min. walk from the Ponte Vecchio on the Arno River, and you will be so, so, so happy not to be living in the middle of the mobs of tourists and selfie-stick vendors. Oltrarno is by far the best, least touristy neighbourhood. We are at Via Romana 29, 50 meters from the entrance to the Boboli Gardens, next door to the Pitti Palace.

It consists of an entrance and living room, a fully equipped kitchen with a table for four, two bedrooms (one with a baby grand piano), two bathrooms and a closet room, central heating, telephone, washer, cable TV with VCR & DVD player, stereo, dishwasher, microwave, hi-speed we-fi internet, and insect screens on the...

Interaction with guests
We are almost always here for guests' arrivals. We think it's important to greet them and show them around the apartment, making sure they understand all the various appliances. There is a red folder on site which has lots of recommendations for things to do, places to eat, etc.

We loved everything about this apartment. George was a fabulous host. Gracious and available, willing to either fill us with Florence information or leave us to discover it ourselves. The location is fabulous. Steps to great restaurants, the entrance to the Boboli gardens, a grocery...More

While I have stayed in a number of apartments in Florence this is by far my favourite. Since I found it I only stay there (2 visits to date and third being planned). The overwhelming appeal is because it is very comfortable, well equiped, central...More

This flat feels like a real home - there are lots of books, cds, well equiped kitchen and of course the piano. The piano was really why we chose it in fact as well as its location near Eurocentre language school in Santo Spirito. We...More

About the neighbourhood
Fortunately 'Oltrarno,' our neighbourhood, is less frequented by tourists than the opposite side of the Arno. This is because the Uffizi and Accademia galleries are on the other side. But we have the Pitti just next door and the
Boboli gardens 30 yards from our door. Ours is a very lively area with many
artisans' craft shops, cafes, boutiques and trattorias.
Getting around
Florence, the historic part you will be interested in, is only about 1 square mile, so you really can walk everywhere. Still, there is a bus stop just 30 yards from our door and taxis can be found with a short call.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Firenze Peretola: 10.0 km
Railway: Santa Maria Novella: 3.0 km
The apartment is in the ZTL zone of Florence, which means only residents
can enter during the day. There is a garage nearby which would permit you
to enter. However, we also know of several free parking spots just outside the walls, a big savings for people arriving by car.
The apartment is at Via Romana, 29, just a 10 min. taxi ride from the station
and 20 min. from the airport.
