Via Zannoni is a typical street in the Historic centre of the city. There are many restaurant, coffe shop and market and a supermarket and a self service laundry is only 30 meters far from the flat.

We are only 3 minutes by walking from the Florence Catedral 'Il Duomo' and 7 minutes from the Uffizi Gallery.

just 20 meters far, around the corner, there is the famous market of 'Mercato Centrale di San Lorenzo'.

From here you may visit all the historic centre by walking, without need pubblic transportation or car.

In the neighborhood of San Lorenzo is one of the most characteristic of the city. It houses the famous covered market where you can find hundreds of grocery stores, fresh fruits and vegetables. In the street, a few meters away, there are a supermarket and a laundry room. A few hundred meters you will find the Medici Chapels and the major monuments of Florence. You do not need a car or use public transport to get around this central area of the city

All public and private funds have the terminus in the square of the railway station of Santa Maria Novella in less than 100 meters away. Here there's also buses which provide the connection to the airport of Florence and Pisa.

About Massimo

My name is Massimo, I am 49 years old, father of two children aged 13 and 18 years respectively. Work in the field of vocational training and, together with my wife, I own a Holiday house in the heart of Chianti Classico: Il Vichiaccio

Search on the web about us ;-)

Massimo purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Massimo chose Florence

I love to travel a lot, for this gives me a great pleasure to welcome and illustrate my beautiful and historic town to my guests.

What makes this apartment unique

The whole structure and liberty furnishings, as well as the staircase in cast iron, are dedicated to the period in which Florence, in 1800, was the capital of Italy. It was in that period that was built the beautiful San Lorenzo Market which is right in front of the house.

The house is very bright and quiet, despite being in the heart of the historic city center

Great central stay in Florence

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our 5 night stay in this very conveniently located apartment. Close to the train station so we could walk with our suitcases without any problem. The stairs up to the apartment would be a little challenging for anyone with mobility issues but we had no problems (a couple ages 60 & 54). The apartment was quiet even though it was so close to the market. Kitchen was fairly well equipped - we cooked a lot. Manager was quick to assist with the one small issue we had with the washing machine. Overall, good place for a short stay in Florence.

This place was so very nice! It had a place to sleep for all 4 of us! It was so close to the train station as well as easy to make your way around the rest of the city.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this well located apartment. It was clean and conveniently situated near attractions, an indoor market, public transportation, and several restaurants. The owner was available and communicative. We mistakenly left behind our daughter's retainer, and the owner kindly sent it to us when we returned home. Thanks for everything!

Highly recommend*****

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful stay. This apartment is in a great location. Right in the middle of everything - we were able to walk just about everywhere. The restaurant right outside the front door if fabulous, too - we ate there every night (my husband still dreams of the tagliatelle). There is a corner store right by the front door for snacks and small groceries, and the larger grocery store is only a short walk away.The flea market is very close, at the end of the street. We were in the middle of a month-long tour of Europe with three kids (aged 15, 14 and 11), and this was the best place we stayed because it was so convenient and had lots of room for everyone. We love the decor in the apartment, too, it is so cozy and welcoming. The neighbors are kind and helpful. Massimo made the process very easy and we highly recommend staying here. We will definitely stay here again should we return to Florence!

splendida vacanza

  • 4 of 5

Abbiamo passato 4 meravigliosi giorni, la casa è bellissima, confortevole e piena di fascino, in pieno centro storico a due passi dalle meraviglie di Firenze. Nonostante il mercato quotidiano vicinissimo la casa è tranquilla e silenziosa, dotata di tutti i confort e pulitissima. Grazie a Rita per il benvenuto e la disponibilità e grazie a Massimo per l'accoglienza, speriamo di tornare presto!

Un posto da consigliare

  • 4 of 5

Buona sera, sicuramente il punto di forza sono la posizione piu`che ottima e nello stesso tempo la tranquillita`presso il Suo appartamento. L`unica osservazione negativa e`forse quella di dover sistemare il letto con lenzuola e federa, cosa che nei nostri appartamenti e`ovvio trovare gia`pronto. Comunque siamo stati bene e lo consiglieremo.

Owner's Response: La ringrazio per il suo apprezzamento. Per quanto riguarda il problema della biancheria, purtroppo la normativa italiana non mi consente di preparare i letti o offrire altri tipi di servizi alberghieri in quanto io affitto la casa come privato e non come struttura ricettiva extralberghiera (come invece lo sono i bed & breakfast, le case vacanze etc). So che questo puó apparire come un disservizio e, francamente, me ne faccio un cruccio perché vorrei tanto che i miei ospiti si trovassero a proprio agio al 100% ma, davvero, non mi é possibile erogare anche questo tipo di servizio. Spero di averla nuovamente come mio gradito ospite. Cordiali sLuti
