Gonfaloniere Apartment is situated in the most delightful spot overlooking the River Arno in the heart of Florence. Here you can spend your holiday in luxurious surroundings within walking distance of the city’s museums, galleries and restaurants.

The apartment can be found set back from the road and located on the first floor. From the vast windows you will see the stunning city and the river flowing by. The living space is open-plan and leads in to the modern kitchen to create a spacious and sociable area where you can come together with friends for glass of wine in the evenings.  

The home has been skillfully designed; the historic frescoes of the original building have been retained but the interiors have been decorated and furnished in a chic 1950s style with gorgeous pieces of furniture and art works. The high ceilings and coloured Italian marble which is used in the living space and the bathrooms bring a touch of elegance to the apartment. As well as looking incredible, the home is also cosy and has all of the modern conveniences you need for a relaxing break, including three spacious en-suite bedrooms, Wi-Fi, air-conditioning and smart TVs.

The location couldn’t be better as you are situated in San Frediano which is a known as a trendy, bohemian area or “the coolest neighbourhood in the world” according to Lonely Planet! On your doorstep you will discover a less touristy, authentic part of Florence which is filled with art studios, intimate bars, restaurants and vibrant piazzas. This is a wonderful base for your trip to Florence as you can spend time in this neighbourhood and also head in to the city centre at ease whenever you wish.

The best way to get around Florence is on foot due to the compact city being largely pedestrianised. However, there is also a good bus network which will take you to all of the key attractions if you prefer. A great way to get to know the city and plan your itinerary for the rest of your stay is to take a guided walking tour early in your trip. There are lots of tours to choose from, including full day tours which will show you a bit of everything, to specialised history, art or food tours so your group could choose one based on your interests.

Within 2kmm of the apartment you will be able to visit the Ponte Vecchio bridge, the imposing town hall, the statue of David and the UNESCO protected buildings on the Piazza del Duomo.

Florence is a brilliant choice for an Italian city break as the city is small enough to walk around easily but there are countless historical and cultural attractions to see and of course plenty of amazing restaurants.

The apartment is located in the San Frediano neighbourhood which is near the banks of the River Arno and has a village-like feel to it. This area is rather fashionable with the locals but so far has not been flooded with tourists so you will find authentic Florentine cuisine, atmospheric bars and artisan shops here. There is lots to do here without even venturing into Florence’s centre; you can visit the markets on the Piazza Santo Spirito, see tiny art studios which line the streets, visit the 15th century Basilica of Santa Maria del Carmine which is home to a crucifix made by Michelangelo and enjoy delicious gelato by the riverside as the sun begins to set.

You do not have to travel very far to reach the heart of Florence which is around 1km away from the apartment and an easy walk. As Florence is known for being the cradle of the Renaissance, the range of old churches, galleries and museums here is unrivalled! There are so many remarkable sights that you probably won’t fit everything in, so it is worth planning what you would like to see in advance and heading out early to beat the queues. Some places sell handy combination tickets which cover entry to a few different attractions.

Some of the most-loved places to visit include the former palaces of the Medici dukes; the Palazzo Pitti and the Palazzo Vecchio which is now the picturesque town hall. The Galleria dell’Accademia is where you can see Michelangelo’s statue of David and the renowned Uffizi Gallery is a must-see for art lovers. There are also many breathtaking places of worship such as Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and the Baptistry which are both situated on the enchanting Piazza del Duomo.

If you are in need of some rest and relaxation you could unwind on a scenic boat trip down the River Arno - this is a brilliant way to see the city from a different angle and also to rest your legs if you have had a busy few days exploring! Another peaceful spot in the city is the vast Boboli gardens which are filled with sculptures, fountains and pretty floral displays, an ideal place for a tasty afternoon picnic!

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages

Florence is a wonderful place to visit with slightly older children who would enjoy taking in the historic sights, art works and dining al-fresco in a picturesque piazza.

An exciting way to see the city with kids is to take a horse and carriage ride with a knowledgeable driver. You can sit back and relax as the kids learn about the local monuments and enjoy travelling by carriage through the ancient streets.

When visiting Florence, children will love learning more about Leonardo Da Vinci who lived and worked in the area. Kids can learn about Da Vinci’s amazing feats of engineering and his scientific discoveries at the Leonardo Da Vinci Museum which is a great place for a family day out. At the museum you can see reproductions of dozens of Da Vinci’s machines like his flying machines and early versions of tanks. Children are allowed to touch everything at the museum and there are also workshops held to teach more to curious young scientists!
