This apartment is located in piazza Santo Spirito, at the heart of the area known as Oltrarno, or the “other” side of the river Arno. Full of color and character, the Santo Spirito neighborhood is considered the last remaining bastion of true Fiorentinità, the quintessential Florentine spirit. The area houses countless small shops, fabulous restaurants and pizzerias, quaint bars and hip cafes, artist studios and artisan bottegas, but has a less overwhelming tourist presence than the north side of the center, providing a more “local” and authentic Florence experience – a full immersion in the city’s true character and history. Pitti Palace and the Boboli gardens are virtually around the corner, while all other main sights are within comfortable walking distance: Ponte Vecchio (4 minutes), Piazza Signoria and the Uffizi (5 min.), the Duomo (9 min.), Santa Croce (10 min.).
