You truly can't beat the views from the terrace and location of this bright, tasteful apartment. There are 4 apartments here that, altogether, can accommodate 20 with the use of sofa beds.

Location

We named this apartment and its neighbors after great Italian scientists who are celebrated with monuments in the church of Santa Croce next door. The church, officially a basilica, is called the Pantheon (temple to the gods) of Italy commemorating many Italian creative geniuses from all disciplines with their graves and/or monuments. Navigating the monuments is just one of many ways to enjoy the beauties of Santa Croce.

Guglielmo Marconi invented radio for which he was awarded the 1909 Nobel Prize in Physics. As an entrepreneur he founded the Marconi Company in the UK in 1897, creating a commercial success. It is hard to think today that until the radio about @120 years ago, all distant communications had to be via physical wire or mail.

Piazza Santa Croce not only hosts the daily life of Florentines, but also entertainment from buskers and larger events such as exhibits, concerts and the annual Calcio Storico, celebrated, amazing historical-style soccer matches. The famous sites of Florence are all walking distance. Super dining and gelato all nearby.

Exterior

A beautiful contrast to the wonderful renaissance architecture of Florence and the gothic style of the nearby basilica, the palazzo here is of Liberty style (called Art Nouveau in France) and dates from about 1900.

Interior

The bright open-plan living room works well in this quality apartment. Large windows illuminate the space that includes a living room area with sofa bed and 2 arm chairs. Across the room is a handsome dining table for 4. The kitchen is between these two areas, open with a preparation island with a 2 burner induction stovetop, sink and refrigerator under. A microwave, tea and coffee equipment are on nearby side tables. On the same level is a full bath so this can work well for 3 or 4 guests.

10 steps up to the loft, you find the bedroom. There is a large closet, full bath and the entrance to the little terrace with wonderful views.

Carrara marble in the bathrooms is beautiful. We truly appreciate the features of this property and location.

The companion apartments are Da Vinci, Fermi and Barsanti.
