Overview

About the property

La Fiesolana is a lovely 430 sq foot vacation apartment in Florence located on the ground floor of an important, ancient house right in the historic centre of the city.

The building (or “palazzo”) was once an old convent that has been later completely restored; the apartment has preserved the original layout traits such as exposed beams, frescoed ceilings and a stunning Florentine terracotta floor. This studio flat is provided with every comfort, including internet connection and air conditioning, and, thanks to its very central location, it is just at an easy walking distance not only from the main tourist attractions and churches - Piazza del Duomo (the Cathedral Square) is just 10 minutes away – but also from all sorts of shops, traditional cuisine restaurants, pubs and trendy night clubs. A public garage is close by, as well as an open air car parking.

About Florence

La Fiesolana is ideally situated for a vacation apartment in Florence. Only a 6-minute walk from Piazza Santa Croce and ten minutes from the Duomo cathedral, it is within easy walking distance of all the main tourist attractions. The famous shopping district of Borgo la Croce with typical florentine restaurants is but a couple of minutes walk.

The ground floor apartment consists of an entrance hall with a small kitchen, a bathroom with shower and a large living area with a good quality foldable bed for two people. A third bed is available on request.

The recent renovation and furnishing with elegant and unique antique pieces give the accomodation a sophisticated yet homely ambience.

The building with its grand entance and door-within-a-door is typical of buildings of 15th century Florence. The frescoed ceilings and agaves create a felling of timelessness.

La Fiesolana is located in Sant’Ambrogio District, definitely one of the most liveable neighborhoods in the city. From this district it’s only a ten-minute walk to all the major monuments, squares and museums of the city. And yet, due to its location just outside of the most heavily-touristed areas – it hasn’t been overrun by mass tourism.

Along the streets of Sant’Ambrogio it’s still possible to meet many ‘real Florentines’ – walking, shopping or simply chatting on the stairs of a church, on a park bench, in a market, or amidst the narrow streets. Almost all of the area’s streets are closed to traffic and this makes the district even more attractive for both tourists and residents. One of the most representative monuments of the district is

the beautiful synagogue located in Via Farini, built in 1882 by Florence’s Jewish community. Also interesting is the simple and harmonious Sant’Ambrogio Church, located in the most lively square and representing the heart of the district.

Sant’Ambrogio is especially well-known among Florentines for its indoor and outdoor daily markets. Every morning in Piazza Ghiberti the ‘Sant’Ambrogio’ market is held, a great alternative to local supermarkets (both in terms of quality and prices), where you can find typical cheeses and meats, fresh fruits and vegetables as well as articles of clothing, whilst immersed in the very characteristic atmosphere of an authentic Italian market.

In Piazza dei Ciompi (100 meters from Piazza Ghiberti) the flea market is held (open daily except Sunday and Monday in winter) where it’s possible to find all kinds of unusual antiques and collectibles at budget prices. And in this same square, on the last Sunday of every month, there’s a high-quality (with prices to match!) ‘Antique Market’ that is very interesting to visit, even if only to browse.

The entire district is characterized by a long antiques tradition and, walking through the streets of Sant’Ambrogio, you’ll be surprised by the quantity of beautiful antiquarian shops located on every corner.

Where we are
