The apartment is located in Florence's historic city. "Oltrarno" means "beyond the Arno" and this area stretches along the south bank of the river. Oltrarno is the true essence of Florence: a quiet, green and therefore more relaxed than the other. For this reason many tourists appreciate it more and more. This area is also known as the district councils, famous for its fancy shops, small shops and artisans' studios (particularly furniture and leather): Via Maggio is the antiques center of Florence.
From rural center, in past centuries the Oltrarno became a chic neighborhood where many aristocrats built their palaces and villas. The biggest of these is undoubtedly the Pitti Palace was the residence of the Grand Duke of Tuscany. Nowadays the Pitti Palace hosts many exhibitions and museums, the most important of the city. Other major attractions are Oltrarno the Brancacci Chapel with its magnificent frescoes by Masaccio, Masolino and Filippino Lippi, the Piazzale Michelangelo with its breathtaking view of Florence, the magnificent church of San Miniato (one of the highest points of the city and the best example of Romanesque architecture in Tuscany) and the Ponte Vecchio, with its countless jewelers and goldsmiths. Inside Palazzo Pitti, the formal Boboli Gardens, an outdoor museum of sculptures, some dating back even to the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
Finally the Oltrarno is famous for the antiques market in Piazza Santo Spirito (served daily), its cafes and wine bars (Olio & Convivium, Bene Vobis, Caffè degli Artigiani...) And inns that offer dishes of Tuscan cuisine ( Holy Drinker, The 4 Leoni, Osteria del Cinghiale Bianco, The Warehouse...). Those who choose to live in this area will find a wide range of food shops, bakeries, bakers and more.
Florence city centre is a ZTL zone which stands for “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 must specify their need for access in the ZTL and the garage will then note the vehicle’s number plate and forward it to the appropriate police headquarters.
