Florence, Tuscany

This apartment in the heart of historic Florence is on the second floor of a residential building. Its recent total refurbishing includes a new kitchen, new bathrooms, new wood floors, and a complete paint job. From the sidewalk, a small street level gate leads into a private alleyway where a private entranceway gives onto a single flight of stairs which lead to the flat. The courtyard location means quiet nights and good night’s sleeps, something hard to come by in busy Florence.
The comfortable bedroom with antique king size bed (new mattress and pillows) is tastefully decorated with a painted ceiling which includes images of butterflies, the apartment’s namesakes.

Butterflies was a great base for our six night stay in Florence. Located not far from the main sites, we were able to easily walk and nip back to the apartment if needed. The apartment itself was spacious and comfortable, with decorative quirks we really liked. We particularly loved the butterfly painting on the bedroom ceiling and the choice of...

This apartment has everything you need for a holiday in Florence. All the places of interest are within walking distance. The large bed is super comfortable and the painted bedroom ceiling is stunning. There is a small supermarket close by and a wine bar just a few doors away.The only downside is that there is no view from the windows...

What I liked so much about The Butterflies apartment was its general appointment and the centrality of its location to the main attractions of the city. Set only five minutes from San Lorenzo, and ten minutes' walk from the Duomo, it was perfect for me and my partner. Interestingly, it is also only ten minutes from the main station, Santa...

About the neighborhood
We are 5 minutes on foot from Piazza San Marco. You will find everything you might need nearby (restaurants, supermarket, laundromat etc.), but are slightly removed from the center, which makes for quieter nights.
Getting around
You can walk everywhere from the apartment. The Duomo is about 10 minutes on foot, Ponte Vecchio and Piazza della Signoria about 20 minutes. The furthest place, Palazzo Pitti, is a 30 minute walk.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Amerigo Vespucci: 5.6 mi
Railway: Santa Maria Novella : 0.6 mi
The apartment is a 15 minute walk or a 5 minute bus ride from the central train station (Santa Maria Novella). From the airport you can either take a taxi (a half hour ride, about 20/25€ but prices are always increasing) or a bus to the station and then walk or take another bus.
