Timeless views of Florence with modern elegance.
This apartment just might have it all: spacious accommodations, stunning views, and the perfect central location in the Santa Croce neighborhood of Florence.
Welcome to the Santa Croce neighborhood in the center of Florence. It’s one of the most historical areas of the city, but you won’t need to wander far to find modern comforts like markets, restaurants, and the popular tourist destinations. Make sure to check out the traffic-free Piazza Santa Croce, which is home to soccer games (complete with medieval costumes!). The apartment is located on Via Verdi, a historic street with a mixture of medieval and mid-century modern architecture.
This apartment is the best of both worlds: a modern style in an historic neighborhood. Designed by the famous mid-century modern architect Giovanni Michelucci in the 1960s, the apartment is located just a short walk away from the lively Piazza Santa Croce.
Lorenzo is truly a rare find in Florence: a four bedroom, four bathroom apartment with a panoramic view of the surrounding city. The mid-century modern design and the thoughtful detailing throughout are both luxurious and comfortable: original parquet floors, mosaic and stucco detailing in the bathrooms, soundproof windows offering stunning views of the Duomo, and even a private sauna!
The open living area is flooded with light and connects to the large, fully equipped kitchen with full-size refrigerator and six-burner stove. Each bedroom, replete with fabulous views, can sleep two guests and has its own bathroom, making this the perfect apartment for larger families or groups of friends traveling together.
The windows throughout are double glazed.
Choose from 4 elegantly decorated, bright bedrooms, each with its own balcony, shower or tub and stunning window views of Florence. Three of the bedrooms are equipped with dual-king beds that can be separated into two single beds. The fourth bedroom includes a comfortable sofa bed with a high-quality mattress, as well as its own half-kitchen and private balcony. All of the beds have comfortable mattresses with quality linens.
All of the bedrooms have private balconies from which you can enjoy stunning views.
Bedroom 1, 2 & 4: 2 single beds each 90 cm wide that can be joined together to form a dual king.
Bedroom 3: High quality queen size sofa bed 180 cm wide
All 4 en-suite bathrooms are modern and comfortable, with a shower or tub and heated towel racks. Half bath is located off the laundry room.

• One of the most beautiful Florence apartments we have visited...absolutely gorgeous!
• This is a rare find. Luxury apartments with 4 bedroom and 4 bathrooms are hard to find in Florence, especially at this high quality level
• Very good location, many neighborhood conveniences with Vivoli gelateria nearby, restaurants and a good supermarket and Sant Ambrogio farmer's market too
• Lively Piazza Santa Croce is a short walk, noise from pedestrians in the street below is normal for this area
Our Guest Reviews
Our family of 5 had the most perfect stay at this property over the Christmas and New Year holidays. The owner clearly knows how to accommodate every need with organic bath soaps and shampoo, fluffy towels, bathrobes, a basketful of hairdryers, first aid kit, and a well outfitted kitchen for quick breakfasts or a night in. Art and history books are carefully laid out on the coffee table, little dishes of Italian candy are in each room, as well as subtly scented diffusers that do not overwhelm like air fresheners from back at home. There is absolutely no clutter. The penthouse is spotless, and is cleanest rental we’ve come across in all of our travels. We enjoyed having so much space for privacy and to come together to read and chat. Be sure to book the additional expense for the sauna. It was very convenient and easy to use after a long day sightseeing and walking.
This is a professionally maintained rental property and the expertise shows from our communications, checking in and out, to the generous pantry basics on our arrival. We were greeted with a basket of dried fruit, Prosecco, pastries, and a fridge filled with eggs, milk, juice, butter, and prosciutto. It was so nice to have this all on hand for our first breakfast, slowly eating and watching Florence come to life through the windows. And because we enjoy the noise that comes with an urban center, we opened the window a bit to hear people walking by, Vespas zooming along, and shopkeepers beginning their day. No guidebook could have prepared us for the exceptional view of Florence’s skyline. The photos in the property listing are accurate, but to see the sunrise and sunset over the rooftops and church was an experience we will never forget.
We were lucky to catch glimpses of the New Year’s Eve fireworks as well as an incredible New Year concert at Theater Verdi just across the street. Our stay was so easy, we didn’t have to make extra runs for supplies or worry about anything really, but just enjoy all that Florence offers.
Lorenzo Stay December 2019
This four bedroom, four and a half bathroom fully functional apartment has been recently upgraded and is beautifully and comfortably furnished. The location is central to everything - just a block from the Piazza di Santa Croce. It is an easy walk to many of the main attractions of Florence. There is a wonderful view of the rooftops of Florence as well as the Duomo from the living room in the apartment. We were traveling with 6 people including my 87 year old father-in-law. The elevator was therefore very useful as it is a fourth floor apartment. Also, because of the central location we were able to return to the apartment easily when we needed a rest. The bedrooms are comfortable and the hospitality was outstanding. We met with the owners and they gave us a wonderful tour of the apartment and many great recommendations for eating in Florence as well as directions to the nearest store for groceries. They had stocked the kitchen with some basic food items for us as well as a celebratory bottle of prosecco! The apartment comes with a maid who comes for two hours a day to clean if wanted. There is a functional washer and dryer which was quite handy. The owners are available to communicate with when needed. The apartment is on a busy street and street noise can be heard from some of the night clubs at night especially on the weekends. The owners have installed heavy glass windows and heavy shades that cover the windows which helps. Italy Perfect was very helpful in coordinating our stay and I would recommend them without hesitation.
