We welcome your inquiries and questions and will respond within one business day. The calendar is updated frequently. FLORENCE ITALY PERFECT TORELLA APARTMENT Enjoy panoramic views of all of Florence from the bedroom and a spacious terrace for basking in the Tuscan sun from a central, deluxe apartment. Location This amazingly sun filled apartment is at the top of a Renaissance palazzo that faces the gallery of the Ufizzi gallery, the most famous museum in Florence, across the Arno river. Exterior The building blends with its Renaissance-age neighbors with grey stone, pietra serena, accenting its classical proportions. The building is locked and has a doorman during business hours. Interior There are a few steps from the street to the level of the elevator which takes you all the way to the floor below the Torella apartment.The staircase, 18 steps, is beautifully painted and leads past a coat closet to the main level of the apartment.The expansive, private terrace is the highlight of the main level. It faces uphill and from there you can see across the river to Santa Croce, Ponte alle Grazie, San Miniato and Piazzale Michelangelo with its beautiful views. A garden in the summer, the terrace has a table and chairs for dining and enjoying the sun and views. From the terrace, step into a charming room that has a full height window and door on its terrace side. There is a glass-topped table with two chairs, a bench and shelf unit in this room. A pass through window opens onto the kitchen.Three steps from this dining room leads into the living room with sofa, chair, credenza with television. The credenza contains the dishes and silver ware as well as the microwave. Alongside the credenza is also the refrigerator/freezer. The kitchen is small, but has everything for preparing meals: two burner electric range, sink, coffee pot, drip coffee maker, electric tea kettle, pots, pans, knives, utensils...The bathroom has a shower, toilet, bidet, sink and washing machine. It has an independent heating unit.The bedroom is accessed up a narrow staircase that rises from the living room. There are 19 steps that are not wide, about 19 inches. Under the steps is the clothes closet and a small closet that holds the vacuum, iron and board. If the terrace was not enough for views and light, the bedroom may even be more wonderful. A room built on top of the building, the bedroom has an arched window in each wall with a memorable view from each. The bed is a queen. If you stay up late, maybe even just enjoying the view, you can close the light-blocking drapes so you do not have to rise with the sun.More
