Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + 1 Convertible bed, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)
Located by the Arno River (riverfront), this spacious apartment offers a wonderful view of "Parco delle Cascine," where most Florentines go every Tuesday for its open market featuring fresh fruits and flowers, local arts and crafts, among other beautiful things.
This is for sure a very typical Florentine, non-touristy rush-rush area!! It is easy to see clothes ranging outside the buildings to dry, old ladies going to the local mart with their grocery baskets, and patient fishermen trying for luck by the Arno River during Sundays.
The apartment (700 sqft) is one flight up in an 1800's building. It's very tastefully decorated, fully-equipped, and all rooms are bright and sunny. It's very comfortable with two bedrooms with air-conditioning (one with a double bed, one with two single beds), one full bath and one half bath, fully equipped kitchen with everything you will need to cook a delicious Tuscan meal, living room with sofa bed ( sleeps 6 people confortably) and dining room. A cot and high chair are available with no extra cost.
It is well served with public transportation, with regular buses and electric buses that go directly to Florence Historic Center. The Metro Station is at only 2 minutes walk and it goes directly to the Santa Maria Novella train station in 5 minutes.
Or if you choose to walk, it is only 15 to 20 minutes nice and easy walk along the Arno River with a stunning view of Florence.
