Public transport Link for the public bus service in Florence: www.ataf.net Link for the national train network in Italy: www.trenitalia.it Parking 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 they need access for the ZTL and the garage will then note the vehicle’s number plate and forward it to the appropriate police headquarters.
Left on 06/13/2013 for a stay in May 2013 | mark & jane wilsonReviewed Jun 13, 2013Stayed May 2013
We rented Brancaleone, Via di Camporeggi 3, Florence from Mariella & Andrea Corvi, from 28 May - 01 June 2013. These people were extremely hospitable, friendly and helpful, and the apartment was very spacious, excellently appointed, close to San Marco square and just a few minutes walk to the accademia art gallery and the Duomo.
we enjoyed our stay in Florence immensely and recommend the Corvi's Brancaleone apartment for any stay, long or short.
Thank you for your lovely review. We are glad to know that you spent a good time at the Brancaleone apartment. We are always pleased to receive feedback from our clients as it is our aim to try to maintain our high standards of service to guests and wherever possible, improve them too.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Florence in the very near future.
