Short Term Apartment Florence - Piazza Santa Croce - Gaddi
Description from the manager
The large Santa Croce square outside this short term apartment in Florence is a bustling center for students, locals, shopkeepers and tourists to gather. The Santa Croce church is one of the most important sites in Florence, and the best gelato shop in the city is located close by! This Florence accommodation is located in a beautiful palazzo right on the pedestrian-only square, which is lined with shops, restaurants and wine bars. You are perfectly located for visiting all that the city has to offer, as well as having a comfortable accommodation in Florence, Italy, in which to rest and unwind – and share your stories of the day.
This landmark Renaissance-style apartment building has been beautifully restored yet retains its historic character. The palazzo has thirteen apartments, many with views of the Piazza Santa Croce and the interior garden. Although there is no public parking nearby, a paid parking lot is in the neighborhood, just across Piazza Santa Croce. The price varies according to car size: 20/30 euros per day.

We had a very enjoyable time. The apartment was very clean, well-maintained and safe. Everything worked perfectly. It was attractive and comfortable. Cecile made an extra effort to accommodate our check-in and was very pleasant, knowledgeable, and helpful.
The convenience of this location cannot be overvalued. Historical sites, museums, shopping, and good restaurants and gelaterias all within walking distance. Also, we had the unexpected pleasure of watching the parade and football game with participants dressed in medieval costumes. It was great fun.
The grand church of Santa Croce is right on the piazza; it was worth two visits by us.
