Hello. I stayed at Ray's apt for the entire 4 weeks of my stay in Florence. As you can see from the pictures, the apt is beautiful. The bus lines and train station are close by; I would recommend the calm train station at Campo...More

About the neighborhood
The apartment is located in a highly desireable area near Ponte San Niccolo, just 200m from the boundary of the central zone. There are few tourists and within 800m there are many small businesses which serve the local residents – cafes, bakeries, delis, butcher, hardware store, pet shop, gelateria, bank, wine bars, restaurants etc. A major shopping centre is 1.3 km away. The apartment looks down onto a courtyard, the centerpiece of which is a magnificent magnolia tree. Other windows look down onto Via di Ricorboli and upwards towards Piazzale Michelangelo. The River Arno is 200m from the door and the wide streets and mature trees provide a marked contrast to the starkness of the city centre.
How to get there
If you are a guest with a car, it is easy drive to Apartmento Ricorboli from the A1 (the Autostrada which connects Milan and Naples) and, from the apartment to the Chianti countryside, the drive is also easy. We are located outside Florence’s restricted traffic zone, so it’s possible to drive right to the front door of the apartment and park nearby. The main train station (Stazione Santa Maria Novella), is 10-15 minutes by taxi and the main airport (Peretola), is 20 minutes by car.
