Sophisticated and elegant, the Da Vinci apartment has a terrace and views of beautiful Santa Croce Basilica. Super Florence location.  A full home, it has separate rooms for living room, study, dining room and kitchen as well as 3 bedrooms and baths. 


Location

We named this apartment and its neighbors after great Italian scientists who are celebrated with monuments in the church of Santa Croce next door. The church, officially a basilica, is called the Pantheon (temple to the gods) of Italy commemorating many Italian creative geniuses from all disciplines with their graves and/or monuments. Navigating the monuments is just one of many ways to enjoy the beauties of Santa Croce.


Leonardo da Vinci [b:1452-d:1519] is considered the most talented and intelligent human to have lived. Science and invention were only a few of the subjects he mastered that include anatomy, astronomy, botany, cartography, painting and paleontology. He conceptualized flying machines, armored vehicles, solar power and calculators. Not to forget that he is one of the greatest painters of all time.


Exterior

A beautiful contrast to the wonderful renaissance architecture of Florence and the gothic style of the nearby basilica, the palazzo here is of Liberty style (called Art Nouveau in France) and dates from about 1900.


Interior

This desirable apartment is both spacious and elegantly furnished. The large living room is handsomely furnished with Italian leather. It is full of light from large windows overlooking Santa Croce. Adjoining is the office with a handsome antique roll-top desk. A full dining room complements the bright and very large kitchen.


On the main level find a half bath for guests and a large bedroom with en-suite bath.


One floor above, both bedrooms access the small terrace up a few steps. The views are fabulous from Santa Croce across the rooftops around to the iconic dome of the main cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore.


This is a gorgeous apartment, so nice we really didn't want to leave. And, as always, we love this location.


With companion apartments 20 people can be accommodated. The companion apartments are Barsanti, Fermi and Marconi.

May 2, 2022 - Manual Entry

Perfect place to call home!

by Joanne Verkuilen

We are a family of four, but also had my brother and wife stay with us, so the size of this apartment was absolutely perfect. The comfort and decor was warm and inviting and had everything we needed. The bathrooms are luxurious with marble, great towels and cozy robes as well. The location is also perfect - walking distance to everything. We stayed four nights and it was a beautiful part of the vacation!

We are delighted to read your comments and all the factors that you have enjoyed during your stay at Da Vinci! The Italy Perfect Team

Local Sights

Piazza della Signoria (7 mins Walking)
Center of power of Florence since ancient times with the David statue by the Palazzo Vecchio, the ancient seat of government, and the loggia of dramatic statues each of which has a story about politics and power. Imagine the Bonfires of the Vanities here and the triumphal return of the Medici.
Uffizi Gallery (7 mins Walking)
One of the greatest museums in the world. The defining collection of Renaissance art. A tour is recommended.
Duomo (8 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!
Ponte Vecchio (12 mins Walking)
Awesome ancient bridge over Florence's Arno river that has survived 800 years. Famous for the shops of goldsmiths along its length.
