Surround yourself with the history and beauty of Florence with a stay at the beautiful Allegro apartment. Located just one block from the Uffizi and with a charming balcony, this is a stunning home base in the heart of Florence.

If Florentine charm and a fantastic location are on your wish list, the Allegro apartment ticks all the boxes and more! Elegantly designed and beautifully appointed, the Allegro is the perfect respite after full days of sightseeing, dining and shopping.

Perfectly situated just one block from the Uffizi Museum, Piazza Signoria and the famous Ponte Vecchio bridge, all of Florence’s top sites are easily walkable. Right on your doorstep you’ll also find excellent restaurants, a café, a pizzeria and several jewelry, fine arts and clothing boutiques.

A sweet balcony greets you as you step into the apartment. Outdoor space is such a treat; it can be enjoyed many months of the year from early spring to late fall. Enjoy your first cup of coffee or tea each morning as the city below comes alive or unwind in the evening with a glass of prosecco.

The Allegro apartment is located in a building that was constructed around a historic medieval tower, the Torre Lambertesca. The building’s elevator even runs up the tower! Stepping inside the apartment, you’ll see the rough stone wall of the medieval tower. The open plan living room has two glass doors that face towards the Uffizi, just one block away, and overlooks characteristic terracotta tile rooftops. A sleek dining table with banquette seating, comfortable sofa and two armchairs provide ample seating.

Bedroom 1 has an en suite bathroom accessed through a “hidden” door in the wall of closets that line the room. The handsome bathrooms, each with enclosed showers, pay tribute to Italian craftsmanship with beautiful tilework.

The unique setting around the Torre Lambertesca is a rare chance to experience Florence's history up close. The stones of the medieval tower reflect turbulent moments in the city's history. In the 11th and 12th centuries, prominent Florentine families built towers up to 70m/ 230ft high for defense during the violent competition among them. Torre Lambertesca is one of the few remaining of once 150 towers in the city. In the 13th century, with the founding of the Republic of Florence, the era of civil battles ended and the towers were all reduced to a height of 29m/ 95ft.
