"In no other place of residence in Florence have we lived in such intimate touch with the city's historical past, and in so many of its expressions." So said Pulitzer Prize winner R.W.B. Lewis, author of 'THE CITY OF FLORENCE, HISTORICAL VISTAS AND PERSONAL SIGHTINGS', in his description of the palazzo during his stay there.
The location is ideal for sightseeing, right on the Piazza Santa Croce and the magnificent Gothic church of the same name. The tombs of Michelangelo and Galileo and other famous Florentines are housed there. A short walk will take you to some very small but very interesting museums, such as the Horne Museum, the museum of the story of science, dedicated to Galileo, and two ancient herbal shops, Erboristeria and Erboristeria della Antica Farmacia del Cinghiale (Herbalist at the Old Boar Pharmacy). You can purchase herbal soaps, potpourri and fragrances made from ancient recipes by monks and nuns throughout Tuscany. A few more steps and you are at the Piazza della Signoria and the world famous Uffizi. And that's just in one direction!
Belvedere is one of several apartments in a majestic palazzo right on the famous Piazza Santa Croce. Available for short stays, weekly or monthly rentals.
Belvedere is on the third floor of the palazzo, reached by stairs or elevator. This two bedroom apartment, recently restored in 2004, has a sunny, southern exposure and is very quiet. Enjoy spectacular views of Florence's rooftops from the living room and the outdoor terrace.
As you enter the apartment, the galley kitchen is in front of you and a spacious and airy living/dining room is on the left. From the dining area, you walk out through a set of French doors to a comfortable terrace with table and chairs where you can dine al fresco or just enjoy a glass of wine among the Florence rooftops.
A long hallway from the right of the entrance takes you to a beautiful double bedroom, a double/twin bedroom with en suite bath and another bathroom with shower. To the right of the hallway is a laundry room with storage space for your suitcases. This is a very comfortable apartment in the center of Florence, where you will find it easy to make yourself at home.
