A charming little apartment with a wow-factor terrace just steps from the Ponte Vecchio in the coveted Oltrarno area. The terrace will be your outdoor living room when mild Mediterranean temperatures prevail during many months of the year.

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.

Great spot!

Great spot! We really enjoyed the terrace as a late afternoon escape from all the touristy buzz below in Florence. The place was clean, comfortable and quiet at night. Would absolutely stay again.

Center of Florence

by Vladimir

Good apartment in the center of Florence, perfect for a couple of tourists.

Fantastic location

by Deepti

This apartment was nice and cozy. It was in a fantastic location right next to the Ponte Vecchio, several bus lines, a bakery, a laundromat, and Gelateria La Carraia. One thing that's helpful to know is that they only provide enough toiletries/dish soap for 24-48 hrs. Otherwise, the balcony was great to have, and the washer & drying rack were extemely convenient for the 5 night stay.

Thank you for your kind review. We are delighted you enjoyed the apartment, its location and terrace. The information you received commits to basic supplies and provides direction to the nearest store for consumables. We supply a courtesy kit for each guest that provides toiletry essentials for several days. The Italy Perfect Team

Location great

by Tia G

Lage super, trotz sehr belebte Gegend, sehr ruhig. Viele Restaurants rings herum. Leider wegen des schlechten Wetters konnten wir nicht die Terrasse nicht wirklich benutzen…

Translated: Location great, despite very busy area, very calm. Lots of restaurants around. Unfortunately due to the bad weather we couldn't really use the terrace...

Perfect spot

by Jack G

We had such a great stay here. It’s the perfect spot if you want to be in the heart of Florence. So close to the Ponte Vecchio and Pitti Palace. Some great local bakeries, bars and restaurants nearby too. Our host was so helpful with the instructions she gave for both the check in and check out. The space was clean and tidy, with all of the equipment we needed. The roof terrace was such a nice addition too, we had a lovely time reading out there when we wanted to escape the business of the city. We’ll be sure to stay here again if & when we return to Florence!

The location was PERFECT

by Elaine R

Our host, was so helpful and responsive. She gave great recommendations. The location was PERFECT and easy to get to from ANYWHERE. (Chocolate croissants across the street and a convenient grocery store a half block away in addition to all the Firenze sites!) We loved having the private veranda though it doesn’t look quite like the photos. This place worked well for our 5-night stay in Florence!

A great little place

by Paul R

A great little place in a perfect part of Florence. A great value for the money. So many things nearby, from market, coffee pasty to gelato and restaurants. All the great sights are an easy walk, and the Oltrarno neighborhood is a great find. Place is small, but everything we needed. So glad we stayed there.

Steps away from Ponte Vecchio

by Natalia D

My mom and have spent a little under a month around Italy and one of longest stayed was in Florence. We absolutely adored this city and the location of our stay. We were steps away from Ponte Vecchio and about a 10min walk to the cathedral, Duomo and tower. (Close enough that I was able to rush to the Firenze FC football store to buy a jersey before checkout!) After booking almost 10 stays and multiple cities, I was bound to have at least one hiccup in my itinerary. Thankfully Italy Perfect team and our check-in host, were so accommodating and understanding and adapted to our last minute need to change. Our first day, I had to contact our host for an issue with the hot water in the morning, by that afternoon all was resolved. They acted professionally and efficiently to ensure a comfortable stay for us. No doubt that if you need something, it will be accommodated for you. Thank you to the team for helping us in our stay and for this wonderful home!

We had a lovely time in Florence

by C & A

The Italy Perfect team was exceptional to work with. We loved our stay at the Carina apartment. Location is so convenient and the apartment was clean and comfy. We really loved the terrace w- it was fantastic during the unseasonably mild fall weather. Enjoyed sitting out there with a glass of wine in the early evening - such a retreat. Thanks for the good shopping and restaurant info too, very helpful.

Such a lovely stay.

by Venetia E

Such a lovely stay. The flat was nice and the terrace was lovely although it doesn’t get any sun, it was such a treat to have an outside bit. Isabel was very kind and helped with any questions I had. The location was ideal and close to everything you might need. Would definitely recommend to friends

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.

Ponte Vecchio (1 min Walking)
Awesome ancient bridge over Florence's Arno river that has survived 800 years. Famous for the shops of goldsmiths along its length.
Boboli Gardens (5 mins Walking)
Expansive and beautiful gardens behind the famous Pitti Palace with statues including the fat man (Bacchus) on the turtle.
Pitti Palace (5 mins Walking)
The famous Medici family's home, it is a large museum with many fascinating galleries. It opens to the large Boboli gardens that may be visited separately. I the origin of the Vasari Corridor, an enclosed, protective "bridge" between the palace and the Medici offices at the Uffizi.
Duomo (10 mins Walking)
Florence's famous and glorious cathedral, Santa Maria del Fiore, beautiful to gaze at since the 1300s. Don't miss and, if you can, read about -- then visit the amazing dome by Brunelleschi erected without scaffolding!
Piazza della Repubblica (10 mins Walking)
A great piazza of Florence. The shape reflects its role as the forum in Roman times. Now it has fine palaces and a triumphal arch and colonnaded sidewalks. You will see street artists, impromptu musical performances and a colorful merry-go-round. Glitterati in the fancy cafes.
Uffizi Gallery (10 mins Walking)
One of the greatest museums in the world. The defining collection of Renaissance art. A tour is recommended.
Accademia (20 mins Walking)
Home of the original David by Michelangelo, his dramatic Bound Slaves and a very nice museum.
