## The Space
This gorgeous 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, third floor apartment (with elevator) in the centre of Florence has everything you'll need to stay comfortably and safely. The entrance of the building with Renaissance statues will leave you breathless.
The entire apartment has been fully renovated in 2022 and decorated with attention to details and refined taste for design furniture and comforts. The earthy color palette of the apartment creates a warm, pleasant atmosphere.
The space is clean and practical and accommodates up to 6 people, but I recommend either 4 adults and 2 children, or 5 adults, to fully enjoy the space.
It's located on the third floor of a historic building with elevator and comprises:
- a lovely and bright living room ( with 1 double sofa bed
) which opens onto a fully equipped kitchen creating a lovely open space.
- a spacious master bedroom with good storage space and Queen size bed
- a second bedroom with a sofa bed that opens in a real double size bed. This bedroom has a sliding wall that can be opened to create a lovely open space. One wall has original affrescos.
- 2 bathrooms with shower (one en-suite)
The unit comes with air conditioning throughout the whole space, flat screen television, a Fiber Option WiFi connection.
A fully equipped kitchen with oven, microwave, dishwasher, Nespresso coffee machine, kettle, ecc. plus the addition of a washing/ dryer machine.
The apartment has all the comforts that a house can offer, quiet and stylish it's ideal for a comfortable stop during the visit of the beautiful Florence.
Absolutely great for a family or a group of friends.

Borgo Ognissanti, which owes its name to the Church of All Saints, is a street full of shops and great restaurants (Italian and international), and provides a variety of large and small activities designed to satisfy every need.
While Florence a very quiet town, the presence of the police station makes Borgo Ognissanti a very safe area both day and night.
Ideal for daily shopping, a Conad supermarket is right next to the apartment building.
For the sweet tooth I recommend the bakery Becagli (also next to the apartment) where you will find every morning fresh bread, cakes, and great ideas for breakfast. In addition, across the street is the bar Blanco, a local very nice place for breakfast or a quick lunch.
Going to Piazza Goldoni (shortly beyond the police station) I recommend the San Carlo, a very casual bar but also somewhere to enjoy drinks at the end of the evening (their drinks are excellent).
Tired of so much culture? No problem! On Via Maso Finiguerra is the multiplex cinemas Marconi, always full of premieres. For those who want to enjoy a bit of pampering, I recommend the spa Javasun.
Finally, but of primary importance, between Borgo Ognissanti and Maso Finiguerra are located all the most well known car rental agencies (Avis, Hertz, Europecar, Maggiore, etc.) that will allow you to rent a car for day trips or to continue your journey your next destination.
Florence city centre is a ZTL zone which stands for “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
Despite being in the city center, the Dependance Machiavelli is located on the border of the ZTL and therefore easily accessible by car. Walking time to : Train station 7 minutes, Duomo 12 minutes, Uffizi 15 minutes, Pontevecchio 14 minutes
