3 advantages for you
Max 8 People
4 per apartment (Tot 8)
2 living rooms, 2 kitchens
In the vibrant district of S.Ambrogio you will find two apartments:
- A two-room apartment, Apartment A, consisting of a double bedroom, living room with sofa bed, kitchen and bathroom, for a total of 4 beds
- A three-room apartment, Apartment B consisting of a double bedroom, living room with sofa bed, kitchen and two bathrooms, for a total of 4 beds.
The two apartments can also be booked by the same family or group of friends, as they are on the same floor and can be made communicating, for a total of 8 guests.
The area is very pleasant. One of the few in the center still inhabited and frequented by the Florentines. In the morning, the colorful Sant'Ambrogio market awaits you with its stalls of fruit, vegetables, clothes… between a coffee - there are many bars - and a baker, you can experience the authentic Florentine air. Then you can walk to Santa Croce, the Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, Piazza Duomo and all the main attractions of the city.
In the evening, returning to the apartment you will be spoiled for choice on where to dine among restaurants, bistros, trattorias and ethnic food. And the prices are much lower than in other areas.
It is ideal for those arriving by car thanks to the large covered parking, with which we have an agreement.
What makes this apartment special ?
Strategic location & atmosphere
You are in the university area full of nice and non-touristy clubs but a 10/15 minute walk from the Duomo and Santa Croce!
Modern style furnishings designed to create an environment with attention to detail and where refinement and comfort go hand in hand!
Ztl & Parking
Not far from the apartment there is the Sant'Ambrogio car park and some others with special agreements.
The square next to it (Piazza Ghiberti can be reached without entering the Ztl)
Some reviews about this apartment.
Emanuele è stato molto reattivo e alla mano con il check-in e il check-out
Emanuele è stato molto reattivo e alla mano con il check-in e il check-out. Eravamo un gruppo di 8 persone e abbiamo apprezzato molto questo appartamento ben arredato con tutto il necessario per trascorrere un paio di notti a Firenze. L'aria condizionata è un grande vantaggio!
External breakfast at an artisan company.
Distance: 100mt from the apartment.
One of the best bars in Florence has recently opened very close to the apartment. The owner of this place has been world coffee champion several times. I love this place!
Do you think I could fail to make a deal with them for my beloved guests?
So I made an agreement with them!
3 types of breakfast: Simple, medium and abundant, you choose which one you prefer.
Fortunately I have lived in Florence for a very long time.
Over time I have had the opportunity to collaborate with many guides (especially when I worked for hotels as a marketing consultant).
From my experience I have selected two specialized guides:
Elisa -> Extremely funny girl.
Going around with her means laughing all the time. She combines an immense knowledge of all the anecdotes (or gossip as she calls them) of all the artists and all corners of Florence.
Chiara -> Maremmana of origin has lived in Florence for 20 years! She is a smart girl who has made her passions her specialization.
She proposes thematic tours:
Wine - Walk around Florence with stops in wine bars.
Romantic - Florence in the most romantic places with a violinist who plays serenades and ditties for you (lasts about 2 hours but is highly emotional)
How to get here
For those coming by car there are two possibilities.
1) park outside Florence (eg Villa Costanza) and then take public transport (eg tram to the terminus Unit)
2) park in the center in the paid parking.
see below the info on parking (see below) .
Auto Bus (from Santa Maria Novella station)
The Firenze Santa Maria Novella station is the main hub of all the Florence traffic system.
For this reason it is very likely that if you return a plane or a train (there is a second station called Firenze Campo Marte), it is still almost sure that you will pass in front of the Santa Maria Novella station.
Ascent: In front of the station, Piazza Adua.
Bus stop n ° : The bus stop is n ° 1834
Bus: 6 or 14
From this stop take bus 6 or 14 (sometimes there is also a letter after the number eg 6a or 6b, do not take this into account)
Exit Stop: Via Niccolini, altezza n° 35.
N° stops: 7
Travel time by bus: about 15min.
Walking time: Once you get off, walk along Via Carducci until you reach piazza Sant'Ambrogio.
Then continue along via dei Macci up to number 59.
Next to the door is the Emporio Rock shop and the antique bookshop carpenter WoodArt.
Note: Bus / Tram Ticket.
Bus and Tram share the same ATAF ticket (Ataf = name of the transport company) which costs about 1.20 euros for 90 minutes.
You can buy it at a tobacconist's or newsagent's before boarding or with your mobile phone, by sending a text message to the number 4880105 and writing the word ATAF. On some buses it is also possible to pay by credit card.
The cost of the ticket is slightly higher than 1.50 euros (+ any commissions from your operator).
Warning: You risk serious fines if they find you with the ticket in hand but not validated, so remember to buy the ticket AND validate it when you get on the bus!
My private parking.
Cost: € 25 per day
Location: 300mt from the apartment, in the Sant'Ambrogio car park.
I have a private subscription which gives access to the Sant'Ambrogio underground car park.
To access it, you must be in possession of the badge card that I will have you find directly in the apartment upon your arrival.
In this way you can arrive in front of the apartment, unload your suitcases, collect a badge card and then go to park. Convenient isn't it?
Following the booking, I will send you a detailed guide with photos and videos by email or WhatsApp!
2) Return of the badge
To return the badge card, as for the delivery, after having come to load the suitcases in front of the apartment ... leave it directly at home! That's all!
PARKING FOR FREE (or almost)!
[7 € per day] VILLA COSTANZA
Parking at the motorway exit + direct TRAM to get to the center + Bus.
Open from June 2017 it is a parking lot directly connected directly to the A1 motorway!
In reality, there is no exit from the A1 motorway at all.
It is located in the stretch of highway between Florence Impruneta and Florence Scandicci. Villa Costanza exit.
While the car parks in the center cost about € 35 per day on average, here the daily rate is only € 7!
How does it work?
Simple! Exit the parking motorway, take the tram line (there is only 1 line) and arrive at the station.
Then take the bus or a taxi as described on this page!
Parking far away + bus to get to the center
Leaving the A1 at Firenze-Impruneta or from the Firenze-Siena, go towards Florence in the direction of the small town of Galluzzo.
After about 1km, in the coopers area, there is a fairly large free car park with a convenient bus stop.
From here take bus 37 direct to the Firenze Santa Maria Novella train station (about 30 minutes).
Then take the bus or a taxi as described on this page!
From 15.00 onwards whenever you want.
The apartment is equipped with a self check in system.
How does it work?
1) Make a reservation
2) Receive a link to register the identity documents of the people staying overnight
3) Receive the credentials to enter the house (without the keys)!
You can leave the apartment at the latest at 11.00.
After this time, the credentials to open the doors of the house will no longer be valid.
In case of course they can always be open but they need my authorization.
What do you need to know to leave the apartment?
Nothing, absolutely nothing. Just close the door behind you! That's all!
However, once you have left the apartment, it is a good idea to send a text message to let them know!
Often it is not possible to keep luggage in the apartment in the afternoon.
In case near the station there is a convenient and cheap luggage storage.
This is the link:
Radical storage - Luggage Deposit near the station
Where / how to throw the garbage
In this area of Florence the collection is separated only by organic, packaging and undifferentiated.
In the house you will find a basket and some plastic bags.
If you go to throw the dirt, the bins are behind the Sant'Ambrogio market (see image).
