The apartment is located in the heart of Florence, just around the corner from Via Tornabuoni in Via Della Vigna Nuova, considered two of the most prestigious and elegant streets in Florence and famous for their elegant boutiques such as Salvatore Ferragamo, Armani, Versace, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Burberry and Cavalli.

Florence city centre is a ZTL zone which means a “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 a private garage. Thanks to the private garage you will obtain a temporary access permit. Upon arrival at the garage, guests must specify they need access for the ZTL and the garage will then note the vehicle’s number plate and forward it to the appropriate police headquarters.
The public bus service in Florence is provided by "Ataf".
The nearest bus stop to the house is on via della Vigna Nuova, about 3 minutes walking distance, and the bus n° is 6 or 11.
