Apartment Alessandra is a spacious, chic and distinctively furnished flat, uniquely spread across two levels, and situated in the heart of the Santa Croce neighbourhood. This gorgeous apartment hosts one double bedroom and one bathroom, while a double sofa bed in the lounge means it can sleep up to 4 guests in total: perfect for not only a couple, but even a family or small group of friends.

Located on the 3rd floor of an apartment block, you will be instantly wowed by the roomy interior and unique design of Apartment Alessandra when you enter its doors. Be wary; you will have to muster up a little more strength to get your luggage up the stairs, and then you can all spread out, relax, and unpack. While the kitchen is immaculately designed with white furnishings and all the modern amenities you need, the apartment is also bursting with artistic charm and peppered with vintage artwork and décor. The living and dining space are one room, making this a spacious and welcoming area for you to enjoy a meal or drink together. The colour scheme of blue and white mixed with monochrome touches and vintage wooden furnishings makes this space feel both cosy, but also light and airy for the humid summer months.

On the first floor, you’ll find a large double bedroom, similarly designed with warming colours and an inviting Queen-size bed. The large, vintage mirror was a unique and elegant touch. Next to the bedroom, you’ll find a bathroom with a shower and toilet. Marbled walls and modern touches, along with towels and some essentials provided for your stay, make you feel as though your needs to relax and unwind are being totally catered for, while being in your own apartment gives you the freedom to make it your home for the trip!

What’s also special about this apartment is the terrace, making it the ideal spot for a summer break. Gaze out at the quaint bustle of this idyllic neighbourhood as you enjoy your morning coffee or an aperitivo before dinner.  Soak up the sun and scenic views from Apartment Alessandra, which you’ll find easily as the block has a distinctive design. Your neighbourhood is Santa Croce, a charming and popular district, close to major attractions and yet still retaining its local flavour. By staying in this enchanting little apartment, you’ll surely get to experience life as a local.   

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • Please note that the apartment is on the 3rd floor of the block, so unfortunately it is unsuitable for guests with reduced mobility
  • Please note that other guests will be staying in the complex, and there are shared laundry facilities available for use
  • It is not recommended that you hire a car for your trip. The apartment is in a highly pedestrianised zone, and your central spot means you are within walking distance of many major attractions

Apartment Alessandra is in the heart of the city, in the district of Santa Croce, so all the major sights and attractions are close by. Santa Croce is bursting with rich history, stunning artwork, and astounding architecture, all within walking distance! The Basilica Santa Croce (literally on your doorstep) is of course a hugely significant landmark and the burial place of Michelangelo, Galileo, and other famous Italian luminaries. Art lovers will be astonished by the renowned altarpiece in the Medici chapel. You might even be lucky enough to see a concert in the piazza; they are often free and an excellent way to experience some authentic local culture, under the stars.

Also within walking distance, the Uffizi Gallery is one of the best-known art galleries in the world. It’s a must-see destination for any art lover visiting Florence, boasting an impressive collection of Renaissance artworks by celebrated artists including Botticelli, Da Vinci and Michelangelo. Less than 10 minutes from the apartment, another must-visit museum in Florence is the Bargello National Museum, home to a stunning collection of Renaissance sculpture. Located in the Palazzo del Bargello, this historic building was once used as a prison and police station. Famous artists featured in the museum include Donatello, Michelangelo, and Cellini.

Discover more of the city's masterful architecture at the Palazzo Vecchio, a 13th-century palace that served as the Florence government for centuries. Offering scenic views of the city, you can also go inside and see some magnificent works of art. It’s a simply majestic spot, and you can purchase tickets and book your slot online before you visit, so don’t miss out. After a day of exploring, you may find yourself in the iconic square that is Piazza del Duomo, just 10 minutes away from your apartment. Home to several renowned landmarks, including the Florence Cathedral and the Baptistery of St John, you’ll be immersed in the city’s lively culture, with street performers and vendors on every corner.

For the foodies, the streets of your local neighbourhood are brimming with charming cafes, delicious restaurants and unique shops and markets sure to tempt you with local offerings. Recommended restaurants in the neighbourhood include Osteria dei Benci, a cosy diner offering traditional Tuscan dishes with a modern twist. For a sweet treat, try the dark chocolate and pistachio flavours at the popular gelato shop, Gelateria dei Neri. Moments from your doorstep, sleepy youngsters will be ready for bed after so much pizza and ice cream!

Synonymous with timeless, classical beauty and rich history, Florence is an iconic city and is sure to capture your heart. The city boasts a rich cultural heritage, and you will be mesmerised by the architecture on every corner. From the masterful Duomo cathedral to the medieval bridge of Ponte Vecchio, you’ll be taking snaps at every opportunity. What’s also special about Florence is that there are countless local gems to explore in every nook and cranny, such as the jewellery shops lining the Vecchio bridge, dating back to the 16th century.

Perfect for the lovebirds, take a slow wander through Florence’s narrow, winding streets, oozing romantic charm and elegance. From the famous Bistecca alla Fiorentina to the tasty gelato, no romantic getaway is complete without an abundance of delicious food and drink to try. Don’t miss out on the region’s Chianti wine, or, of course, the world’s most delicious pasta dishes. Simply, a stay in Florence is bound to be both a cultural and culinary adventure for all!

If you’re travelling to Florence with kids, the Santa Croce Basilica is a must-do activity.

Having a knowledgeable tour guide on hand is great if you want to keep the kids curious and engaged. The city is brimming with celebrated artwork, and while kids may not be able to appreciate the splendour of some of the more complex works, they’ll surely love the colour and design of some, including the frescoes in the Bardi Chapel.

Considering the architecture may be slightly overwhelming for younger kids, plan lots of rest breaks for your trips so youngsters don’t get restless. Grab some shade in a local restaurant, replenishing yourself with pizza and pasta after a day out on your feet. Eating out as a family certainly won’t be a challenge in one of the top foodie spots in Europe. There are plenty of options to suit all tastes and budgets. Who doesn’t like ice cream? After a history lesson at the Santa Croce Basilica, try some of the gelato at La Cantina del Gelato, full of high-quality ingredients, as well as friendly and warming staff.

Florence makes an idyllic location for a couple’s getaway or a family-friendly holiday. Full of culture, art, and history, it’s the perfect place to educate both adults and children! With an abundance of museums on offer, you’ll find a variety of immersive and interactive activities for kids but be sure to book in advance to avoid disappointment. Cooking classes are a great way to learn about authentic, local cuisine, and many cooking schools in Florence offer classes specifically designed for families. What are you waiting for? Book your stay at the wonderful Apartment Alessandra and start preparing your itinerary to visit the true ‘Jewel of the Renaissance’.
