A very fine apartment in a super location that will accommodate up to 6. The welcoming environment extends to beautiful Piazza Santa Croce nearby. Organized on 2 levels, the quality of furniture and finishes is very high.


There are 4 apartments here that, altogether, can accommodate 20 with the use of sofa beds.


Location

We named this apartment and its neighbors after great Italian scientists who are celebrated with monuments in the Santa Croce Basilica next door. The basilica is called the Pantheon (temple to the gods) of Italy recognizing many [should I say “about 20”?] Italian “gods” from all disciplines with their graves and/or monuments. Navigating the monuments is just one of many was to enjoy the beauties of Santa Croce.


Enrico Fermi created the world’s first nuclear reactor by designing and building the first nuclear chain reaction in 1942 in Chicago. He won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1938; the first of many awards and medals. He is buried in Chicago, having emigrated to the United States in 1938 to escape new Mussolini-led racial laws that affected his Jewish wife.


Piazza Santa Croce not only hosts the daily life of Florentines, but also entertainment from buskers and larger events such as exhibits, concerts and the annual Calcio Storico, celebrated, amazing historical-style soccer matches. The famous sites of Florence are all walking distance. Super dining and gelato all nearby.


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

Comfortable and convenient, the apartment is on 2 levels. On the main level is the living room area with a sofa bed and 2 armchairs. The full dining table accommodates 4. The kitchen is next to the dining area and has a preparation island with 2 burner induction stovetop and sink. Side tables hold the microwave, coffee and tea equipment.


On the same level is a bedroom and full bathroom.


Just above is a lofted bedroom also with full bathroom.


We found this apartment of high quality and, as always, we love this location.


The companion apartments are Da Vinci, Marconi and Barsanti.

Great Location

by Dayle Deemer

Apartment was nice and very clean. Bathrooms were large and luxurious. Location is convenient and Florence is very walkable. Be aware that kitchen area is limited as there is no oven and no toaster and the coffee pot is a Nespresso (no drip Coffee). Washers and dryer were available but the dryer took forever. Our greeter was awesome and offered help and suggestions to make our stay extra nice. We would stay here again!

Lovely For Our Family

by Lindsay

This apartment was lovely for our family of four. Plenty of space to relax and spread out. The kitchen was limited but more than enough for our needs. The option to rent additional apartments next door would be ideal for a large group or family. We also enjoyed the laundry amenity. The bathrooms were beautiful and spacious. We would definitely stay again - and hope to!

Wonderful Pied a Terre

by Troy

This apartment (Barsanti) is now a favorite for Florence. There is a small terrace with views, good air-conditioning, well-equipped kitchen and a perfect location. The management is very helpful. I would go back in an instant.

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.
