Location in the City.
The apartment is in Santa Croce, one of the main historic districts southeast of the historic center of Florence.
It is very popular with tourists and locals alike for its welcoming and familiar atmosphere. The heart of the neighborhood is the majestic Basilica that gave the neighborhood its name: Santa Croce in Florence. Together with its extraordinary museums and adjacent chapels, this church is commonly referred to as the “Temple of the Italian Glories” due to the great names that are buried within it, including Michelangelo, Machiavelli, and Galileo. In front of the Basilica, there is the huge square which every year hosts the famous “Calcio in Costume” (historical version of the 14th century football matches) and cultural events of all kinds.
In addition to all this, there is an entire neighborhood to discover. Piazza dei Ciompi and the lively S.Ambrogio market are just a few steps from the square. In the same area, there are the Synagogue and the University Area, reachable through streets scattered with laboratories, theaters, and art galleries, as well as surprising historical finds that can be found at every corner.
The incredible monumental area of the Duomo and Piazza Della Signoria are just a few hundred meters away
In this neighborhood, there is also a lot to discover for shopping in the heart of the center of Florence. You will find small antique shops, original Vintage boutiques, workshops of artisans, photographers, and framers, all in a typically Florentine style.
