Saponai can be internally connected to Giudici and Galileo, the perfect solution for a family or a group of friends. It has one double bedroom and one bathroom and can sleep up to 3 people. Internal Description: Apartment (50 mq / 538.20 sq ft) with one double bedroom and one bathroom with shower. As you enter the apartment, you can admire the minimalist interior design inspired by traditional classic Tuscan style, combined with contemporary design elements like the transparent chairs. In the living room besides the single sofa bed and the dining table, there is the kitchen, made up of the cooktop, sink, and a spacious countertop that you can also use for breakfast or lunch. Through the glass door you have access to the bedroom with double bed (180 cm long) and a little cozy balcony. The bathroom has a spacious shower decorated with an elegant blue mosaic. In all the rooms air conditioning is available. In the entrance you will find a hallway that connects to the Giudici apartment, in which there is a common washing machine/dryer. Our Opinion: Saponai is an ideal flat if you are a couple or a single who wants to visit the city of Florence while living in an exclusive area of the historical city center, within walking distance from the most important museums and all the services that the city has to offer. Despite the central position and proximity to main monuments of the city, Saponai is tranquil and creates a barrier from the hustle and bustle of the city below. Pricing Information: Included in the price: Utilities included (for stays up to 30 days), final cleaning, towels and sheets provided, condominium fees, and agency fees. Not included in the price: Tourist tax of €2.50 per person (over the age of 12) per night, for the first 7 nights (for information regarding exemptions and reductions, see our F.A.Q. page), and utilities for rentals over 30 days (gas €80.00/month, electricity €80.00/month, water €30.00/month); fee for registering the contract (which in accordance to Italian law must be written in Italian), for rentals over 30 days, equal to 1% of the total rental price (with a minimum fee of € 33.50) plus tax stamps. Area: The apartment is located within Duomo district in Florence’s historic city centre. The Duomo area constitutes the very heart of Florence and the area takes its name from Brunelleschi’s magnificent dome on the wonderful Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral. The Duomo neighbourhood offers an array of beautiful historical buildings and superb piazzas including the Mercato di San Lorenzo, the Piazza del Duomo, and Piazza della Repubblica, famous for its attractive cafes, patisserie shops, live music, street performers, and caricature artists. Furthermore, the area is surrounded by the city’s main cultural attractions, notably Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio, Ponte Vecchio, the Bargello Palace, and Casa Buonarroti, the former home of Michelangelo, not to mention the Uffizi Gallery and the museum dedicated to the city’s cathedral “Museo dell'Opera del Duomo.” The area also has much to offer in terms of fine dining and exclusive boutique shopping. The top Italian fashion houses are located along Via Tornabuoni, Via Calzaiuoli, and Via del Corso and include famous brands such as Salvatore Ferragamo, Armani, Versace, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Tiffany & Co., and many more. For those choosing an apartment in this area, the Duomo quarter also offers several delicatessens otherwise known as “alimentari,” supermarkets, laundromats, and gift shops, as well as being adequately served by the local public transportation service. Parking: The Florence city centre is a ZTL zone which means a “limited traffic zone” and therefore special rules apply to when you can enter this area. This particular apartment is in fact located within the ZTL zone so this means that if you are thinking of coming to Florence by car and wish to drive around and park, then you will need to pay special attention to the road signs, CCTV cameras, and access cameras (they will show either a red / green light) in order to avoid receiving fines. Guests who need to travel within the ZTL zone by car to reach their apartment are advised to contact one of the private garages in the centre (the one nearest the apartment you are staying in) and obtain a temporary access permit. Upon arrival at the garage, guests mustMore

My husband and I found this apartment just as presented in the pictures and description. By far my favorite bathroom while in Italy. Bed was comfortable. Best part is the awesome location! just steps away from the Uffizi.
