Looking for an apartment in Florence:

We have a golden rule, always ask 'what floor' because the old medieval stairs are just a little higher than those at home and even the fittest among us may find it difficult at the end of a busy day. We opt for an apartment with an elevator if it's over one floor up.

The area you choose is very important as the studio is in San Niccolo in the Oltrarno - the other side of the river. It's good to be able to walk to the studio.

Best areas are Piazza della Signoria - near Uffizzi - Ponte Vecchio and Santa Croce.  

Find the area on this map and avoid the very steep hill near the Boboli gardens.

Please check with us first to be sure.
