In addition to this, you will have full access to the kitchen and the dining room. The apartment is located on the first floor, just 24 steps up from the street level. This building dates back to 16th century, so no, it doesn't have an elevator. :)

The Palazzo Vecchio is exactly in front of your window and is home to the famous Salone dei Cinquecento, which is supposed to be the location where the Leonardo Da Vinci's painting, "Battle of Anghiari", should be hidden.
On top of the Palazzo Vecchio you find the Torre di Arnolfo, which can now be visited and offers spectacular views of Florence and its surroundings.
Your bedroom is right in front of Palazzo Vecchio side entrance, which was added during the last expansion of the building. Above the entrance there is a great Medici coat of arms and the words "Cosmvs Medices Floren Dux MDL", basically you will be living in front of an historical building that is over 700 years old.

You will be staying in the heart of Florence, therefore, you can literally walk anywhere and we advise you to do so. The historical centre of Florence is filled with tiny one way streets and pedestrians areas, so it's easy to walk everywhere while driving around the city is not for the faint-hearted. Moreover, parking facilities start at 25 Euro per day. For such reasons, we believe that it might be better to NOT have a car in this particular area of Florence.Get the full listing »
