Description from manager

<p>The large Santa Croce square outside this apartment in the center of Florence is a bustling hive of students, locals, shopkeepers and tourists to gather. The Santa Croce church is one of the most important destinations in Florence, and the best gelato shop in the city is located close by! This accommodation in Florence is located in a beautiful palazzo right on the pedestrian-only square, which is lined with shops, restaurants and wine bars. You are perfectly located for visiting all that the city has to offer, as well as having a comfortable vacation apartment in Florence to rest and unwind. You will love the time spent on your very own terrace sharing stories of the day and sipping a glass of Chianti.</p>

<p>This landmark Renaissance-style apartment building has been beautifully restored yet retains its historic character. The palazzo has thirteen apartments, many with views of the Piazza Santa Croce and the interior garden. Although there is no public parking nearby, a paid parking lot is in the neighborhood, just across Piazza Santa Croce. The price varies according to car size: 20/30 euros per day.</p>

The Santa Maria Novella train station is a 15-minute walk, and the closest bus stop is right at the base of the piazza.</p> <p>Nearby Attractions:The Santa Croce quarter is located on the southeastern part of the historic center of Florence. Since the Middle Ages, it was an area specializing in leather. In fact, today it is still filled with leather shops! The large Santa Croce Church, filled with famous frescoes and tombs of some of the city’s greats, is the main structure of the quarter. The piazza in front of the church is filled day and night with tourists and locals. Some of the best gelato shops and restaurants can be found in this neighborhood. Piazza dei Ciompi has a daily flea market as well as a large monthly market (last Sunday).
