Beautiful apartment, 60 sq. m., in the tower of a prestigious historical building in the centre of Florence, very close to the river Arno with a beautiful view. The property is for two persons, with one double bedroom with bathroom, furnished tastefully with antique furniture and paintings.
The apartment is on the third floor (there is a lift up to the first floor, then a service elevator to the second floor, and a staircase up to the third floor) of a marvellous historical building in Via Maggio, one of the finest in the whole city centre. The aristocratic building dates back to about 1470 and boasts a majestic courtyard, with a portico on three of its sides, decorated with statues.
Maggio Tower is an authentic loft in a prestigious ancient tower, with a well-equipped cooking area, a small living room, a double bed and bathroom with shower. There is a unique 180-degree view of the historical city centre, the rooftops of Florence and the most prestigious monuments of the city.
Guests will find all necessary commodities, as well as beautiful antique furniture, precious textiles and pieces of art. The apartment has air conditioning, satellite TV and wifi.
The property is in the historical area called “Oltrarno”: the name translates to “on the other side of the Arno” and is on the south side of the river. Oltrarno holds the true essence of Florence: a quiet area with many green spaces, making it more relaxing than other parts of the city, making it more and more appreciated by tourists. The area is also famous for its artisans, its beautiful workshops, small shops and studios (especially antique and leather dealers): via Maggio is the heart of Florence’s antique trade. Over the centuries, Oltrarno became a stylish area where many aristocrats built their palaces and villas: the largest of these is definitely Palazzo Pitti, where the Gran Duca di Toscana lived. Palazzo Pitti now hosts many of the city’s most important museums and exhibitions. The area also features the Cappella Brancacci with magnificent frescoes by Masaccio, Masolino e Filippino Lippi, Piazzale Michelangelo with its breathtaking view of Florence, the picturesque church of San Miniato (one of the highest points of the city and the best example of Romanic art in Tuscany) and Ponte Vecchio with its many jewellers and goldsmiths. Palazzo Pitti is also home to the marvellous Boboli gardens, an open-air museum with sculptures dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries.
Maggio Tower has air conditioning, heating, wifi, hairdryer, toaster, iron and ironing board.
