The apartment is on the 2nd floor and has central heating, air conditioning, free internet and a washing machine.

The entrance leads to the living/dining room, which has a sofa and cooking corner. This room has a window overlooking a small internal courtyard. You will then find a double bedroom with 2 windows overlooking Piazza del Mercato. The double-glazed windows do a good job of dumbing down the outside noises.

This room also has a very small bathroom with shower, sink, toilet and window overlooking the courtyard; the other bathroom with shower is accessible from the living room.

Location and Distances
The apartment is in the Piazza del Mercato Centrale. This is perfect for market lovers. As well as the many stalls, there is also a covered market, with a iron and glass structure dating back to the 19th Century. It has recently been restored and has small shops on the ground floor and genuine Tuscan restaurants on the first floor. If you want to stay close to the apartment, the Trattoria Za Za is an excellent restaurant where most visitors go sooner or later. The Cathedral square (Piazza San Giovanni) with the baptistery and the cathedral is a 10-minute walk away. Piazza Santa Maria Novella is very close, with its church with what is considered one of the most beautiful facades in Florence. The train station is similarly close.
