Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, living room, bathroom with shower, full kitchen, terrace with view.

The apartment Montebello is located on the fifth floor with lift until the fourth floor than there are 2o steps to reach the apartment. It consists of a large living room, one double room, one single room, a spacious bathroom with shower and a fully furnished kitchen. TV, WiFI, air conditioning, dish washer and washing machine are provided.

Few steps leads you to beautiful terrace from where you can admire a gorgeous view of 360° on the city and hills around Florence.

Apartment “Montebello” is located in the hearth of Florence and it is located one of the most silent and peaceful city-centre streets, Via Montebello. The apartment's neighborhood was called “Ognissanti” thanks to the presence of the florentine-baroque Church “Ognissanti”. From 1865 to 1871 Florence was the capital of the recently enstablished Kingdom of Italy, so that many palaces in the Ognissanti neighborhood (including that of Montebello Apartment) were built in order to host the members of the Government and their families. The area is plenty of typical italian craftsmen's bottegas, medieval churches, osterias, trattorias and outstanding italian restaurants. The famous Lungarni are just around the corner and the Duomo is just a five minutes walk from Montebello Apartment, Palazzo Vecchio – 10 minutes, Ponte Vecchio – 7 minutes, Palazzo Pitti – 15 minutes and the Uffizzi Museum – 8 minutes, Santa Maria Novella station- 5 minutes.

Just next to the apartment's palace is situated the bus stop of the Florence Site-seeing red buses and others. Nearby the Montebello street there are two supermarkets, some bakeries and delicious pastry shops.

Charming apartment in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this apartment! It had so much character and a great location. It was less than a 5 minute walk to the hop-on/hop-off bus or you could walk to the major piazzas in about 20 minutes. Even better, it was far enough away from the tourist crowds so it was quiet and you could feel like a local. You could sit on the rooftop terrace with a glass of wine and gaze at the Duomo. Lucia was extremely helpful and accommodating, even offering to arrange a taxi for transport to the airport for our 6 AM flight. I would definitely book this apartment again when I return to Florence.

Excellent apartment , amazing views & gracious host.

  • 5 of 5

Lucia is the perfect host. The apartment is very clean, tidy and well furnished with every amenity that you could wish for. The rooms are spacious and very quiet but the star of the show is your own private roof terrace which has simply one of the best views of this splendid city. It is located just outside of the main tourist sector which is a bonus as it is less busy with more of a natural feel to the neighbourhood with really good eateries, a supermarket and excellent bakery & gelato shops. It is about 10 minutes walk directly to the central area and with many route options along the tiny streets you will find many shops, cafes etc. All of the main reasons for visiting Florence are close by.

A fantastic,perfect and clean property a terrace with a view enchanting

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property it has loads of character, space and charm. The apartment felt safe and was in a safe feeling district. The terrace has amazing views of the Duomo and over the city of Florence, breathtaking something to see in every direction. We were greeted on arrival by the hosts son a lovely charming and helpful young man who gave us useful information on places to eat, where to buy groceries, places to visit and great information on places he thought were good to go to, like the best ice cream place and he was right.

A property we will be returning to and recommending to friends who want to visit this beautiful city.
