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.

A nice place in Florence
This is a nice place to stay if you are travelling to Florence. The view from the balcony is awsome one. There are no distances, if you want to visit the main attractions the furthest was like 500 m away. The hosts are friendly and will help you with any questions you may have. They will recomand places to eat or visit. There was a slight problem with water pressure, but as far as I know, this is a problem in all historic parts of the city. But overall I recommend it and will definitely go back next time I travel if it is available.March 2023

Incredible host and welcoming to a beautiful 2 br newly remodeled home away from home. Very close to the main attractions and he offered great suggestions on restaurants etc. Such a great place! Highly recommend!August 2021
- Matthew D.
Great location and value! Great for families and friend groups visiting Florence as there are two bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. For those who want to use the laundry machine, just note you need to find the light switch in the back storage room of the upstairs bathroom and turn that on. For some reason, the light and washing machine’s power is linked together so that must be on in order to turn on the laundry machine.July 2021
- Andrew D.
Andrea was the best Airbnb host we have had. He was extremely helpful and gave us information on things to do in Florence on arrival. The apartment itself was beautiful; very open and clean. It is also located in a very good location, close to restaurants, one step from the main square.July 2021
