Apartment “Montebello” is located in the hearth of Florence and it is located one of the most silent and peaceful city-centre streets, Via Montebello. The apartment's neighborhood was called “Ognissanti” thanks to the presence of the florentine-baroque Church “Ognissanti”. From 1865 to 1871 Florence was the capital of the recently enstablished Kingdom of Italy, so that many palaces in the Ognissanti neighborhood (including that of Montebello Apartment) were built in order to host the members of the Government and their families. The area is plenty of typical italian craftsmen's bottegas, medieval churches, osterias, trattorias and outstanding italian restaurants. The famous Lungarni are just around the corner and the Duomo is just a five minutes walk from Montebello Apartment, Palazzo Vecchio – 10 minutes, Ponte Vecchio – 7 minutes, Palazzo Pitti – 15 minutes and the Uffizzi Museum – 8 minutes, Santa Maria Novella station- 5 minutes.

Just next to the apartment's palace is situated the bus stop of the Florence Site-seeing red buses and others. Nearby the Montebello street there are two supermarkets, some bakeries and delicious pastry shops.

Very lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous. The terrace is worth any money. The view is as good as it gets. Easy walk from the SMN train station. Wonderful grocery store very close. Easy walking to most major sites. One block off the Arno. Lovely place to come back to. Again, the view was heavenly. Highly recommend.

Great rooftop deck!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very good apartment on the top floor of a nice building in a clean and safe neighborhood. There is a lift that takes you to the 4th floor and you then walk only one floor to the apartment. It has a cozy feel to it but the pictures are accurate and it included all necessary amenities and in working order. Though the bed and pillow are a little on the hard side for my wife and I, many might find this to be a bonus.

The apartment is located a block off the Arno River and there is a good sidewalk along the river all the way to the Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi, about a 10-15 minute flat and enjoyable walk. It is also located a couple of blocks from a Conad supermarket and other fine shopping. Another benefit is it’s within a 10 minute easygoing walk to the train station.

The real draw here though is the rooftop deck which has incredible views of the city including the Duomo and campanile and a number of other churches on both sides of the river. On a sunny day in the late afternoon after walking around all day this is a great place to relax with a glass/bottle of wine - perfect. In all, a very nice place for a stay in a beautiful city.

Wonderful apartment in wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment. The building is beautiful and impressive and the roof-top terrace is sublime. It was an easy walk from the station and perfectly located for our car rental after our stay, It is an easy walk to all of the central sights and activities, but feels nicely removed from the bustle of the immediate central city. /

The apartment was very thoughtfully set out and supplied. Lucia met us (even though we were late arriving from Pisa!) and was extremely helpful in getting us situated and in making recommendations for restaurants. We went to two of her recommended places.

All in all, a great place and a lovely stay in Florence. Thanks.

Dream apartment in a dream city.

  • 5 of 5

Look no more, this is it. This is a lovely home away from home. This is a spacious, beautifully appointed mix of authentic Tuscany and modern comfort. The space is a warm and comfortable space. The fully equipped kitchen and large bathroom (with clothing washer) are modern and useful. The comfortable bed is a beautiful antique set up with luxurious linens. Lucia is a wonderful and helpful host. The entire space is large and efficiently arranged and totally pleasant and comfy. The cherry on top of the cake is a private furnished rooftop terrace with an expansive view of the lovely city of Florence in all directions. The neighborhood is safe and quiet and everything you would ever need or want is a short pleasant walk away. All of the attractions of Florence are an easy walk away as well. Even if you want or need a taxi or bus it is an easy walk to either. This place is superlative. Even if it is a little bit out of your price range this is worth the splurge. Treat yourself, you probably traveled thousands of mile to see beautiful Florence why not stay in a beautiful place too? This is a wonderful place.

Loved our stay at Apartment Montebello

  • 5 of 5

Our accommodations found at Apartment Montebello were just as pictured. Spacious room for three adults and two small children ages 3 years and 1 year. The kitchen space was well furnished with household items. The beds were comfortable with fluffy down comforters. There was a nice supply of Tourist Brochures, Maps and Books. The interior apartment access to the rooftop patio was secure.

The walk from the train station was very easy. The location was perfect along the river. We walked the river into the Historic Area. The apartment is located close to luxury hotels such as The Regent and Westin Hotel. We loved the area/location.

Lucia, thank you for welcoming us into your apartment. We had a wonderful time!

The apartment is located in the neighborhood of Santa Maria Novella, the one where the central train station is. You can have some rest from the trip sitting in Piazza Santa Maria Novella, then visit the basilica and walk a bit along the characteristic streets nearby. If you walk up to via della Scala take a look to the historical pharmacy, the oldest in Europe. The Pharmacy of Santa Maria Novella is not an ordinary pharmacy: enter here will be like entering a museum.

If you like walking around you should visit the maghificence of the Ognissanti Church, at only two minutes form the apartment.

You can see the Last Supper made by Domenico Ghirlandaio and the Crucifix by Giotto. Many handcrafts shops, restaurants, typical trattorias offers you a big opportunity to choose what you like more.
