The neighborhood is full of important monuments: historic churches, parks and important museums, such as the Pitti gallery, the Boboli gardens and Santo Spirito Church.

The Ponte Vecchio connects this area with the other side of the city and the Uffizi Gallery, Palazzo Vecchio and the Duomo are right on the other side. The streets of the Oltrarno are filled with fashion boutiques, jewellery designers, artisanal workshops, art galleries and typical markets. In the evening the area is populated with charming restaurants, cantinas and cafés where you can relax and taste Italian and international specialties.

Located in Borgo San Jacopo 6, at the corner of the Ponte Vecchio on the Oltrarno bank. It is unique for its location and its view on the Ponte Vecchio.

The apartment was lovely. The location was better than we had imagined. Just a few steps away from the Ponte Vecchio. Christina was a gracious host. She offered wonderful suggestions for sites and food around Florence. We highly recommend. Thank you Christina.

One of Our All Time Favorites!

  • 5 of 5

This accommodation made our trip, and is now one of our all time favorites places to stay. Cristiana was responsive and helpful prior and during our trip. Ricardo was there to promptly greet us and provide information to help orient ourselves to the apartment and surrounding area. We felt he genuinely wanted to ensure our needs were not only met, but that we had a fabulous time while in Florence. The apartment was impeccably clean. The beds in both bedrooms were comfortable. It was sunny and very warm while we were there, but the apartment stayed cool while we were sightseeing with the air conditioners turned off. When we returned, we turned the AC back on and we were nearly instantly back to our optimal temperature. The shower was lovely. Everything is well designed. There could not be a better location; quiet and close to all the sights. Even in the heat, with backpacks on, the walk to the train station was doable. With the windows open in the evening, you can enjoy the peaceful music from the Ponte Vecchio. We felt very safe strolling this magical area in the evenings. We cannot wait to return to Florence and hope to stay here again. Thank you for offering such a memorable time for our family. We are very grateful!

Dreamy Florence Apartment

  • 5 of 5

You couldn't ask for a more perfect and romantic location. The apartment is in a stunning location with amazing views of the Ponte Vecchio bridge. You will love being able to watch both the sunrises over the bridge and the sunsets off to the west over the hills from your quaint balconies without having to worry about the crowds. The location is superb and in great proximity to all the great places in Florence. We especially liked that a well stocked supermarket was steps away so we could pick up meal items and wine easily. Christiana, the owner, is so easy to work with and made sure we had everything we needed, and answered any question we had. The apartment itself is perfect for a family, and offers everything you could need. I would highly recommend this rental as a perfect place to stay while vacationing in Florence!

We stayed three nights in Cristiana's apartment and couldn't recommend this apartment more! We wanted to be close to the historic center of the city, and this apartment is in close proximity to everything. Parts of Florence can be crowded, and this side of the Arno is right in the middle of everything without the major crowds. We arrived by train and it was a quick 15 minute walk from the station. Cristiana met us at the apartment and went over everything and gave us recommendations for restaurants. A market is close by as are numerous restaurants and gelato shops.

The apartment itself is professionally decorated, fully equipped and has a comfy bed and amazing views of the Ponte Vechio and Arno! We couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Florence! We took some wonderful photos of sunsets over the Arno directly from our window.
