Stay in the heart of the historic city centre at this home in Florence. It's just a four-minute stroll to Cappella Brancacci and the stunning Rucellai Palace is ten minutes on foot. On the other hand, Strozzi Palace, Palazzo Pitti and the Ponte Vecchio are all around a fourteen-minute amble. Under a twenty-minute saunter will take you to the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and the Uffizi Gallery, while the French and American Consulates are both a seven-minute walk as well. This recently renovated home is housed in a historical building – we love the whitewashed beamed ceilings in the spacious living room. Rustle up a papardelle al cinghiale in the modern kitchen and enjoy it at your dining table. This place is the perfect choice for a group of friends, business colleagues or a family looking to be within walking distance of many of Florence's top attractions.

Local guide


About Santa Maria Novella

Tucked inside the thirteenth century boulevard that marks out the oldest part of Florence, this neighbourhood is on the western edge of Florence’s historic centre. The Piazza Santa Maria Novella, with its Gothic church and museum, is the centrepiece, and while the area immediately surrounding the train station is fairly gritty, it’s a convenient spot for those just passing through. Though Santa Maria Novella is not directly in the middle...
