Additional Location Information

The apartment is located on Borgo Pinti which is in the area of Piazzale Donatello, a square located on the main ring road which runs around the historic centre of Florence on what was once the perimeter walls of the old city. The whole area of piazza Donatello and the surrounding area is full of artists and artisans studios. Back in 1874 a real neighbourhood of artisan studios and workshops was formed and in 1949 the Donatello Group was created, which every year in June in the gardens of the square organizes an exhibition showing their work to the community. The lovely Villa Donatello overlooks the square and is now home to a private clinic, and the main lobby of the Giardino della Gherardesca, now owned by a large luxury hotel. Piazza Donatello is still very close to the historical centre and in particular the area known as Santa Croce. In the area you can enjoy the largest selection of boutique shops, bars and typical restaurants and pizzerias within the city. Three of the finest and most expensive restaurants, Cibreo, Pinchiorri and Alle Murate are located nearby. There is also a good choice of mid-priced options. By night, Santa Croce becomes one of the liveliest parts of town and with its pedestrianised streets and illuminated buildings it transforms into the perfect venue for an after-dinner glass of wine or evening stroll. For those choosing an apartment in this area Santa Croce offers several food stores, supermarkets, laundrettes and individual gift shops as well as being adequately served by the local public transport service.
