If you would like to stay in the heart of Florence in its most famous piazza, Piazza della Signoria , Sole di Firenze apartment gives you this exceptional opportunity.

The apartment is situated in an old 14th century palace , and the windows of the living-room look right onto the piazza.

Additional Location Information

Piazza Della Signoria -- This is the city's civic heart and perhaps the best base for museum hounds -- the Uffizi Galleries, Bargello sculpture collection, and Ponte Vecchio leading toward the Pitti Palace are all nearby.

It's a well-polished part of the tourist zone but still retains the narrow medieval streets where Dante grew up -- back alleys where tour-bus crowds running from the Uffizi to the Accademia rarely set foot.


The few blocks just north of the Ponte Vecchio have good shopping, but unappealing modern buildings were planted here to replace the district destroyed during World War II. (A Nazi commander with a romantic soul couldn't bring himself to blow up the Ponte Vecchio during the German army's retreat, as they had every other bridge over the Arno, so he blew up the buildings at either end of it to impede the progress of Allied tanks pushing north.)

The entire neighbourhood can be stiflingly crowded in summer, but in those moments when you catch it off-guard and empty of tour groups, it remains the most romantic heart of pre-Renaissance Florence.
