Historic Center Rental
No city in the world stirs the senses as intensely as Florence. Built on a smaller scale designed to uplift the human spirit rather than subdue it, Florence is a marvel meant to be enjoyed on foot. During the day, dazzling architecture and famous sights follow one after another in quick succession no matter which path is taken. At night, soft music ripples across star-lit piazzas teeming with gelato lovers savoring the sweetness of Florence.
At the very heart of this walker’s paradise are the immaculately maintained apartments of Torre Uffizi. From an ultra desirable location on a quiet narrow lane, both the Ponte Vecchio and the entrance to the Uffizi’s Gallery Museum are less than 100 yards away.
Within a five minute stroll is Caffè Rivoire facing Italy’s most romantic open space, Piazza della Signoria. Sit and succumb to their exquisite pastries or a sinfully rich hot chocolate while contemplating the amazing art that adorns this square. The piazza’s famous bell tower atop Palazzo Vecchio is within earshot of the apartments. The San Lorenzo market, the Duomo, the Pitti Palace and the city’s best shopping and dining are all within a 10 minute walking radius from home.
The units are located in a 5-story medieval tower that was completely gutted and redesigned for modern comfort and convenience. The property is manned by an English speaking staff, and an elevator connects each floor. Everything is in mint condition and of superior quality. In a city as old as Florence, it’s remarkable to find apartments of this caliber even down to the excellent water pressure, powerful air conditioning and bathrooms equipped with toiletries, terry cloth robes, heated towel racks and built-in hairdryers.
Utilities are all included in the price along with a mid week cleaning, WiFi and a “thick & fluffy” towel change. Extra cleanings, buffet breakfast in the lounge as well as liquor and soft drinks stocked in your apartment are available at additional cost.
Giotto is a large two level apartment for three persons occupying the uppermost floor of Torre Uffizi. The main level is comprised of an ample, comfortably furnished open-plan, living, dining and kitchen area. High ceilings suspended by heavy Tuscan beams enhance the feeling of spaciousness. From two windows facing the rear façade of the Uffizi Museum, one may catch a glimpse of the famous Torre di Arnolfo that crowns Palazzo Vecchio. The remaining windows open to an inner quadrangle. Both the single bedroom on the main level and the double bedroom set far back on the loft above enjoy privacy, separation and their own en suite bathrooms.
Giotto offers a high level of quality and a lot of living space at the epicenter of Florence, the world’s most famous art capital. Easy to reach, the property is within a 10 minute cab ride from the Santa Maria Novella train station or a 20 minute walk. For anyone coming by car, valet garage parking is available.
A tax collected by the city of Florence is paid separately on the first ten nights of any stay. Children under age 10 are exempt.
