External description:Located on the first floor (30 steps), without elevator of Palazzo Minerbetti, built in the XIV century that still maintains parts of its original structure, on Via della Vigna Nuova. The building is in a pedestrian area, making the area exceptionally quiet.
Internal description:Classic but yet antique styled apartment ( 80 sq. mt. / 860 sq. ft.) with 3 bedrooms that can sleep up to 6 people and has 3 bathrooms. It has a comfortable dining area with a well equipped kitchen and a table with 8 chairs. From this room you can reach the 3 bedrooms (1.60x1.90 sq. mt.), two of them with ensuite bathrooms with shower, and a third smaller bathroom for guests.

Parking:The Florence city centre is a ZTL zone which means a 'limited traffic zone' and therefore special rules apply to when you can enter this area. This particular apartment is in fact located within the ZTL zone so this means that if you are thinking of coming to Florence by car and wish to drive around and park, then you will need to pay special attention to the road signs, CCTV cameras, and access cameras (they will show either a red / green light) in order to avoid receiving fines. Guests who need to travel within the ZTL zone by car to reach their apartment are advised to contact one of the private garages in the centre (the one nearest the apartment you are staying in) and obtain a temporary access permit. Upon arrival at the garage, guests must specify their need for access in the ZTL and the garage will then note the vehicle’s number plate and forward it to the appropriate police headquarters.
This property for rent is not a hotel, agritourism, B&B or similar, and therefore by law, extra services similar to those you may find in these types of accommodations, such as a reception, concierge or security, receiving mail, provision of meals and drinks, cleaning and change of linen during your stay, and amenity kits with soaps etc. are strictly prohibited.
