Enjoy

With its central location and upscale neighborhood, the clean and quiet Strozzi is a good place to recharge after a day seeing, tasting & experiencing all that Florence has to offer.

Step out the door of the apartment building and find "miracle mile" Via Tornabuoni just half-a-block away, lined with wonderful shops, luxury hotels and designer boutiques. The apartment gets its name from Palazzo Strozzi, one block away, which is widely regarded as the finest example of Renaissance architecture in Florence. This comfortable and conveniently located apartment offers an excellent historic location, modern conveniences, hard-to-find center of town quiet for sleeping, and a bevy of wonderful museums, tempting take-away gourmet food purveyors, restaurants, and shopping all within steps of the apartment. In the morning stop in at the bakery that is next door to the apartment building and pick out your morning bread and pastries. In the afternoon you might find yourself tempted by the delicious array of delicate cookies for tea time or dessert. At night, enjoy a glass of wine and relax a bit before you head out to one of the many excellent neighborhood restaurants. On the same block as the apartment are several good cafes and restaurants.

Location

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.

Exterior

The apartment is in a Renaissance era building. For larger groups it can be booked in conjunction with the Prisco and Michaela apartments in the same building.

Interior

This modest and affordable apartment faces the internal courtyard of the building and has an internal-facing terrace off the living room. The small terrace doesn't provide scenic views since it faces the backs of the neighboring apartments, other service terraces and laundry lines but it provides a sunny, peaceful retreat in the midst of a busy small city and expands the living room when the French doors are open.

The decor is old fashioned Italian style with homey touches such as lace doilies and figurines. The living room has a sofabed that converts to two single beds.

There is an efficiency kitchenette adequate for light meal preparation due to limited countertop space and distance to the refrigerator. When the doors to the kitchenette are closed it looks like an antique armoire in the corner of the living room.
