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.

Perfect location, full of character

  • 4 of 5

We loved our time in Florence. The apartment is situated in the perfect location to explore. It is well presented and full of character. The apartment is on the top floor and can be accessed by an old fashioned lift that fits two people. The lift only goes as far as the fourth floor, the top floor is then accessed by two flights of stairs.

The apartment is of a high standard, equipped with everything you might need, with the added bonus of a small roof terrace.

Lucia was very helpful both during booking and at check in, showing us round the apartment and pointing out attractions and amenities on a map.

what a wonderful apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Florence. The apartment is centrally located, large and well stocked, and has an amazing terrace where you can sit and admire the Duomo and city lights. Lucia is a wonderful host who gave us many good references if where to go and what to see. I would recommend this apartment to everyone!

lovely place to stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four really enjoyed our stay at Lucia's apartment. It was a perfect size for us and it was very clean and well maintained. There is a Bosch washing machine which can get your clothes cleaned in 30 mins. Our visit was in the middle of July so it was hot and we appreciated the air conditioning in the whole apartment. It was a very convenient 5 minute walk to the train station which made it perfect for the two day trips we made. We did try a lot of gelato from various recommendations, but one of our favourates was B Ice which is only a few mins walk from the apartment. We managed to walk all over Florence but you need to have comfortable shoes. We had a fantastic meal at Trattoria Giovanni on the other side of the Arno and less than a 10 min walk away. It was the best meal in Florence. Thanks Lucia, we hope to be back one day.

wonderful stay in florence

  • 4 of 5

This was an all most perfect apartment and was every thing that was promised. Lucia was wonderful to work with and the location was perfect, within walking distance of the train station and very close to many good shops, markets and restaurants. The apartment was clean and well stocked, even appreciated the full size coffee maker. The roof top terrace was wonderful, drank our coffee in the mornings up there and wine in the evenings. The only suggestion I would give to make this perfect would be a small sofa or more comfortable chairs for the main room. The chairs were not comfortable and small and made it impossible to really relax with others in the common room. The only way to get comfortable was to go to a bed and lay down. Aside from that, and we made it work, it was everything we hoped.

Stunning roof top views! Great location.

  • 4 of 5

Great location for sight seeing. Highlight is the roof terrace for mornings , pre dinner and post dinner views.. out of this world. Handy old fashioned lift not for the faint hearted! Supermarket across road. Everything we needed in kitchen, comfy bed. AC working. Sofa would be nice but chairs were fine. Lucia there to welcome us despite3 hour flight delay and very helpful. Loads of lovely places to eat and see right on your doorstep. Will definitely recommend this place for others.

Stunning view of Florence in great location

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect way to spend time in Florence! Beautiful large apartment with great space. Though there isn’t a view from inside the apartment once you go to the terrace, you just don’t want leave! The neighborhood is very safe and centrally located. There are all the tourist sites plus markets,bakeries, restaurants and bars. We had a car and parked for 20Euros a day with the parking pass Lucia gave us. It was convenient and reasonable for Florence. We would stay here again in a heart beat! Grazie mille, Lucia!

The apartment is located in the neighborhood of Santa Maria Novella, the one where the central train station is. You can have some rest from the trip sitting in Piazza Santa Maria Novella, then visit the basilica and walk a bit along the characteristic streets nearby. If you walk up to via della Scala take a look to the historical pharmacy, the oldest in Europe. The Pharmacy of Santa Maria Novella is not an ordinary pharmacy: enter here will be like entering a museum.

If you like walking around you should visit the maghificence of the Ognissanti Church, at only two minutes form the apartment.

You can see the Last Supper made by Domenico Ghirlandaio and the Crucifix by Giotto. Many handcrafts shops, restaurants, typical trattorias offers you a big opportunity to choose what you like more.
