The area is mainly residential so there is a variety of grocery stores, bakeries, supermarkets, restaurants, bars and cafes. In the area you will also find the “Stazione Leopolda”, Florence’s former railway station which has been converted into a vibrant exhibition hall used for events such as craft fairs, television and fashion shows and also cultural and business meetings. The Parco delle Cascine, Florence’s largest public park popular with walkers, joggers, horse riders and families, is also just 10 minutes away by foot. For people choosing an apartment in this area, there are plenty of food stores otherwise known as “alimentari”, supermarkets, laundrettes, banks, pharmacies and individual gift shops not to mention the fact that you are very close to the main bus, tram, coach and train terminal, Santa Maria Novella. 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.
Additional amenities include: bedrooms 1, double beds 1, sleeps 3, single sofa beds 1, bathrooms 1.TripAdvisor property ID 2044026...Read more

This flat was great for us as we could walk everywhere. Plenty of places to eat around for a range of prices. The flat had all we needed and the owners couldn't have been more helpful. We were able to walk from the railway station.
Thank you for your lovely review. We are glad to know that you had a good time at the Curtatone apartment. We look forward to welcoming you back to Florence in the very near future.

A localização é excelente, a apenas duas quadras da estação de Santa Maria Novella e a poucos minutos a pé do coração de Florença. É um apartamento silencioso, pois possui janelas anti ruído e muito bem equipado com tudo que você precisa para preparar suas próprias refeições.
