Full of light in the heart of the historical city, superbly located between Piazza Signoria, Santa Croce Square and Pontevecchio.
## Space
Nestled between Piazza Signoria and Ponte Vecchio, in a prime spot close to major attractions, this apartment offers a tranquil haven for a peaceful night's sleep. Yet, it's just a step away from the vibrant heart of the city, ready for exploration. Conveniently located near a vast array of restaurants, bars, markets, shops, and other amenities, we'll provide a list of local favorites upon your arrival to enhance your experience.
The apartment, with its high ceilings, is well-equipped for comfort with air conditioning (during summer) and heating (from November to mid-April, in compliance with local regulations). Designed for an unforgettable stay in the magnificent city of Florence, the flat features two bedrooms with king-size beds and one bathroom.
Completing the apartment is a dining room and a small, functional kitchen (equipped with a microwave but please note the absence of an oven). All windows are fitted with shutters to completely block out light, and the rooms have large windows with double glazing for optimal insulation.
Le Grazie 1 is situated on the second floor of a building that harks back to the 16th century. And no, it doesn't have an elevator – adding to its historic charm. :)

## Neighborhood
The Piazza della Signoria has been the center of political life in Florence since the 14th century with the prominent Palazzo Vecchio overlooking the square.
The sculptures in Piazza della Signoria bristle with political connotations, many of which are fiercely contradictory. The David (the original is in the Galleria dell'Accademia) by Michelangelo was placed outside the Palazzo Vecchio as a symbol of the Republic's defiance of the tyrannical Medici.
Piazza Santa Croce in Florence gets its name from the basilica of the same name, one of the biggest Franciscan churches in Italy, famous not only for housing frescoes by Giotto, the sculptures of Benedetto da Maiano, Desiderio da Settignano and Canova, but also fr being the burial place of well-known people such as Galilei, Foscolo, Michelangelo and Machiavelli, becoming a symbol of the homeland even before Italy was unified.
Given its large size and standard shape, the piazza became the perfect place to hold popular competitions during the Renaissance, such as the Florentine Calcio Storico which is still played here today.
## Transit
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.
