Enjoy

We dubbed this the Carina apartment because it means ‘cute’ in Italian, a name that befits this charming little space just steps from the Ponte Vecchio on Florence’s coveted Oltrarno area. The terrace is the wow-factor at Carina, it will be your outdoor living room when mild Mediterranean temperatures prevail during many months of the year.


Location

With a prime position in the historic Oltrarno area that boasts great restaurants, cafes, artisan workshops, the Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens, you’re just one block from the Ponte Vecchio — the world famous pedestrian bridge lined with gold jewelry shops. The neighborhood abounds with ateliers that carry on the traditional Florentine crafts of jewelry making, gilding, antique furniture restoration, marbled paper, and bespoke leather goods.


Interior

Carina is a cute little hideaway, quiet and private with an impressive terrace that is nearly the same size as the apartment itself. The living room is tiny but comfortably furnished. There is an efficiency kitchenette for light meal preparation.


The bedroom also opens to the terrace which makes this a cheerful and bright room. Note that there is very little closet space. The bathroom is en suite.


We like this apartment for its great location and terrace. Please note our cautions about the small living room & limited closet space. If you don’t need a lot of space but want a bright apartment with great terrace in a terrific location this is the apartment for you.

Super Location, Super Terrace!

by Brittney

Enjoyed my stay at the Carina apartment. Lisa from Italy Perfect promised me I'd love it and I did! It was so centrally located, everything walkable but the best part was the terrace! I couldn't belive I had my own private terrace right in the historic center. As a mobile professional it was the perfect work-from-home apartment I could have ever imagined.
