Authentic character in the upscale historic center, the spacious Prisco apartment has tall arched windows overlooking Via della Spada with its great restaurants and chic, world-class shopping.

The charming street where the apartment is located has a nice cafe, a delicious bakery, and an excellent rosticceria for delicious baked and roasted prepared foods. Walk two blocks and you are in the timeless Piazza della Repubblica.


The apartment is located on Via della Spada just off of the high-fashion Via Tornabuoni, with numerous major designer boutiques just outside the front door of the apartment building. You can stroll along downtown Florence pedestrian thoroughfares, enjoying outdoor cafes, easy museum access due to the central location, plenty of shopping, restaurants and the best produce market, the Mercato Centrale, all within walking distance. This is the Florence you see in the postcards and glossy coffee table books. The perfect location of the Michaela apartment will help you appreciate the village atmosphere of Firenze.


The apartment is located in a six-story Renaissance building. For larger parties in need of multiple apartments it can be booked in conjunction with the Strozzi and Michaela apartments in the same building.


The morning sun illuminates the living room and kitchen area. The apartment has many original Italian antiques, yet the living room maintains a casual feel with a modernsofa that opens to become queen size bed. The casual feel means you can put your feet up on the coffee table or stretch out on the sofa for a nap.

Enjoy relaxing meals in the open plan kitchen around the large dining table. In the morning stop in at the bakery that is next door to the apartment building and pick out your morning bread and pastries. At night, enjoy a glass of wine and relax a bit before you head out to one of the many excellent neighborhood restaurants. 

The kitchen has an English-style gas stovetop with grill, a large oven, lots of cabinet and countertop space, dishwasher, and a large refrigerator with freezer. The kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans, dishes and serving pieces.

The spacious master bedroom is to the right off of the living room, with soaring ceilings and a romantic fabric-draped wrought iron frame queen size bed. In the bedroom there is also chaise longue-style single bed for one. A pretty hand-painted armorie and an antique dresser provide ample clothing storage space. Night stands on either side of the bed provide good reading light at night. The bedroom alone is over 40 square meters, or 430 square feet...larger then many Florence apartments! 

Prisco also offers flexibility if you need additional sleeping space, as it can be rented in conjunction with the Strozzi or Michaela apartments which are on the same floor, just a few steps down a private hallway.

If you want to be right in the center of Florence, with all the sites within a few minutes walk, this apartment is an excellent choice. Please note that this is a bustling neighborhood filled with cafes, restaurants and a pub nearby. If you prefer a quiet location, please bear this in mind as the windows overlook the street below where pedestrians can be noisy. The bedroom has double glazed windows which helps to reduce the noise.
