This lovely apartment is located on the piano nobile (noble floor) of an ancient 16th-century palazzo just behind beautiful Piazza Santa Croce. The apartment has been completely and beautifully restored; its central location puts many of Florence's attractions right at your doorstep, as well as coffee bars, restaurants, and shops. There is a grocery store just 200 meters from the apartment. Santa Croce square is just a one-minute walk, and the Uffizi Gallery is just ten minutes away. Other favorites are Michelangelo's David in the Accademia, the Duomo, Campanile and Bapistry, the museum of the works of the Duomo, the Palazzo Vecchio, the Bargello, San Marco with Fra Angelica's frescos and San Miniato, not to mention the Ponte Vecchio, Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens. Think of Florence for leather, lace, linens, Florentine paper and paper products, wine, food and monthly rentals off season. Do you wish to whet your appetite for Florence?

The owner, a well-known photographer and writer, has personally furnished and decorated this unique apartment with an interesting blend of tradition, taste, and high-tech design, along with a few hints from the recent past of the 50's, 60's, and 70's. These diverse styles come together to give the apartment a relaxing, comfortable ambience. The architecture of the surrounding buildings, with their tiny private courtyards, gives the Il Fiorino apartment a cozy, secluded feeling, in spite of being located in the heart of Florence.
Additional amenities include: internet high speed connection, american coffee maker, apple TV system, elevator, fan in the bedroom.TripAdvisor property ID 2049861...Read more
“Great location and a relaxiing place to come home to each day”
Left on 10/09/2010 for a stay in September 2010 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Oct 9, 2010Stayed Sep 2010
It makes for a more enjoyable holiday when you can come back to a "home away from home". The location of IL Firuno couldn't have been better for us. Right alongside Santa Croce which had so much happening - including a 3 day beer festival. The markets were close for buying our produce for cooking and we simply enjoyed roaming the streets. A very comfortable property, well apointed with free internet use and local calls. Extra cost for electricity, gas etc amounted to no more than 30 Euor after a week and we cooked every day. Recommend for couples.
