Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

Stay in the heart of romantic Florence, steps from Piazza dei Ciompi, Piazza Santa Croce, and more. If a central location is your priority, then this apartment is an excellent choice. It’s not the cosiest space, with a bare living area lacking in homeliness. However, this won’t bother those visiting Florence on a city break, where sightseeing and eating in amazing restaurants take up most of your time. If you do eat at home, you’ll notice the dining table in the hallway – it’s a little quirky, but we’re fans of unique touches. Especially the tiled floors. The charming courtyard is a fantastic touch, too.

Home truths

    Parking in Florence can be tricky, but it's a walkable city and you'll be in the centre.

    At full occupancy, one guest will be sleeping on the sofa bed in the living area.

    The traditional decor here might not be to everyone's taste. It feels a little dated in parts.

Local guide


About Santa Croce

Santa Croce is a trendy, architecturally impressive neighbourhood that’s less busy than the Duomo or San Marco districts, but still in the heart of Florence. Home to the eponymous basilica, and the Casa Buonarroti museum, it’s located in the eastern part of Florence’s historic centre. The largest crowds have thinned out by this point, but if you stay here, you're still close enough to explore the whole city on foot....
