Condo/Apartment
In the heart of Renaissance Florence, this large, elegant apartment overlooks the Arno 100 meters downstream from the St. Regis Hotel (formerly the Grand Hotel). The Duomo, Uffizi, and all the other museums and art-filled churches are 10 minutes away by foot, if you don't stop to window-shop along the way. The flat is on the second floor (American style) of a 19th century palazzo, built in the classic Florentine style. There is an elevator. The view, from the living room, dining room, and study, includes the Arno and the 'Oltrarno' section of the city, with Brunelleschi's Santo Spirito and the Pitti Palace, and beyond are the Belvedere Fortress and the Bellosguardo hill, with villas visited by Dante and Boccaccio and olive groves, vineyards, and 600-year old cypresses.

The Duomo, Uffizi, and all the other museums and art-filled churches are 10 minutes away by foot, if you don't stop to window-shop along the way. The flat is on the second floor (American style) of a 19th century palazzo, built in the classic Florentine style. There is an elevator. The view, from the living room, dining room, and study, includes the Arno and the 'Oltrarno' section of the city, with Brunelleschi's Santo Spirito and the Pitti Palace, and beyond are the Belvedere Fortress and the Bellosguardo hill, with villas visited by Dante and Boccaccio and olive groves, vineyards, and 600-year old cypresses. If you look out the windows to your left, you see the palaces lining the Arno and the Ponte Vecchio. In the midst of this intense little city, the apartment provides an oasis of spacious calm, the ideal refuge after visiting museums and shopping. The apartment has a large living room (24 feet by 16 feet), a dining room that sits 10 adults, and an elegant study with beautiful views in two directions. The master bedroom is 17 feet by 16 feet, with a queen-size bed, and has a large master bathroom en-suite (17 feet by 7 feet), with a bathtub and a separate stall shower. A smaller bedroom also has a queen-sized bed and a bathroom with a shower en-suite. There is a third bedroom, off the master bedroom, with a single bed. In the study, there is a day bed with a trundle, which can be made up as one single bed, as two single beds, or as a king-sized bed. There is also a quality cot. There are two full bathrooms, one with a tub and a separate, large shower stall, and one with a large shower stall. There is also a half-bath off of the front hall. In the rear of the apartment is a large (500 square foot) covered terrace. It has no view, but it is elegantly set up for cocktails, meals, or just hanging out. Located on the Lungarno Amerigo Vespucci, in one of the most elegant neighborhoods of central Florence, the apartment is within a few minutes walking distance of all that Florence has to offer - art, history, culture, and world famous shops and celebrated restaurants. The Teatro Communale, site of many Maggio Musicale and other events, is a two-minute walk away. The main city park, the Cascine, with the new Florence Opera house, tennis courts and swimming pools, is a 10-minute walk away. Just behind the flat is the Borg'Ognissanti, one of the most elegant shopping streets in Florence, with stores selling antiques, jewelry, leather, linen, groceries, pastries, plus Botticelli's parish church. Gucci, Pucci, Ferragamo, Valentino, Prada, Armani, Ermenegildo Zegna, Buccellati, Frette, etc., are all within easy walking distance - as are many superb shops that aren't world famous - at least not yet. Many of Florence's most celebrated restaurants are in the neighborhood, but if you want to cook in the flat's up-to-date kitchen, there also are superb butchers, bakers, fruit and vegetable vendors, a fish-monger, etc., and a terrific little Conad 'supermarket' a two minute walk away. The main city food market is at San Lorenzo, which is 10 minutes away by foot, and there is also a large and excellent modern supermarket 15 minutes away by foot. If you want to explore Tuscany, the main Florence railroad station is a 10-minute walk away. The main bus station is just before the railroad station.More

About the neighbourhood
With spectacular views over the Arno from three rooms, this apartment in the historic center of Florence has the perfect location - close to everything, but just a few steps removed from the crowd. The neighborhood is the most fashionable in the town, with four five-star hotels, some of the best restaurants in Tuscany, and many of the finest shops in a city known for shopping. It is also the best area for anybody wanting to make day-trips from Florence. The train and bus stations are both less than 10 minutes' walk away, and all of the major car rental agencies have offices within a couple of hundred meters of the apartment.
How to get there
The apartment is a 15-minute drive from the airport (except during rush hour), a seven-minute walk from the train station, and a five-minute walk from the 'SITA' inter-city bus terminal. It is in a very-small area exempt from the 'ZTL' restricted-traffic zone, so it is possible to drive to the apartment. Contact the owner for specific information.
