The comfortable bedroom with antique king size bed (new mattress and pillows) is tastefully decorated with a painted ceiling which includes images of butterflies, the apartment’s namesakes.

About the neighbourhood
We are 5 minutes on foot from Piazza San Marco. You will find everything you might need nearby (restaurants, supermarket, laundromat etc.), but are slightly removed from the center, which makes for quieter nights.
Getting around
You can walk everywhere from the apartment. The Duomo is about 10 minutes on foot, Ponte Vecchio and Piazza della Signoria about 20 minutes. The furthest place, Palazzo Pitti, is a 30 minute walk.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Amerigo Vespucci: 9.0 km
