It's a nice charming Florentine apartment in the old city center. 5 minutes far from the Duomo and the Uffizi and 15 min far from train station by feet. Thanks to its view on a garden the apartment it's very quiet and always fresh during the summer.
The apartment was completely renovated in 2011 and is situated in an ancient medieval convent near the famous church of Santa Croce. The flat reflect the medieval origin of the building with some details such as ceilings with wooden beams and ancient Florentine terracotta floor.
