Public transportation; Link for the public bus service in Florence: www.ataf.net Link for the national train network in Italy: www.trenitalia.it Parking: The 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 their need for access in the ZTL and the garage will then note the vehicle’s number plate and forward it to the appropriate police headquarters.

This is a perfect apartment for a family or two couples.
Very comfortable, well equipped in a secure building.
Everything we wanted to do and see was within a few short blocks.
We would definitely return to this apartment for our next visit.

Our stay in the Larderel apartment was wonderful. The building is right where we wanted to be; not too far from the train station, close to the city centre and on the best shopping street in Florence. The agency representative was very helpful and we were given a large set of keys to come and go as we pleased. We did have to reset the breaker for the apartment a few times as the power in Italy can be intermittent. The bedrooms each had air conditioning, the salon had a television with satellite ( although we preferred to go out in the evenings) and the kitchen was fully stocked. The terrace was glorious, especially in the morning sun and evening for wine and chatting. Four women stayed together here very happily. We would rent the apartment again in a heartbeat. We would not however move around in the 100 year old elevator as it did tend to stop! The apartment actually had two floors and one of the bedrooms was up there. The palazzo was quiet and spacious and we totally enjoyed ourselves there for our 5 night stay.
