Fantastic location! This elegant, comfortable and bright apartment will simply amaze you with its proximity to the Ponte Vecchio and fascinating views over the Arno from your own private terrace.

The apartment is located in the most central historic center location. You can be at the entrance to the Uffizi Gallery in just two minutes, stroll the Ponte Vecchio at your doorstep. Enjoy the convenience of a location that is second to none when it comes to views and accessibility to the sites.
The apartment building is on tiny Piazza del Pesce at the foot of the Ponte Vecchio bridge. This area was heavily damaged during World War II, and while the Ponte Vecchio was spared, many of the buildings on either side of the bridge, including several 14th century houses that were on this piazza facing the loggia to the Uffizi along the Arno river, were destroyed. Post-war this area was completely rebuilt, including the building within which the Memoria apartment is located. So what the building lacks in Renaissance architectural embellishments, it makes up for in views, light and modern conveniences which are often not found in many of Florence`s historic buildings, where refurbishment is limited by ancient structures.
Sunlight streams through the completely unobstructed windows and views from the living room, dining room and both bedrooms.

Parquet floors throughout the living room and dining room/study. Wall-to-wall terrace doors are southward facing and open out onto a small terrace.

There is air conditioning in the living room, dining room, both bedrooms and the kitchen. Because the apartment gets full afternoon sun, it can get quite warm in the height of the summer season, when A/C is essential. There are screens on the bedroom windows.
