About our home

It's a comfortable house in the heart of Florence, which I completely restructured 10 years ago. There is a big central, living area (and equipped kitchen), a large library overlooking the dining area (with plenty of books, music CD, DVDs etc), 4 separate cozy sleeping rooms (2 of which have a private bathroom, 2 others are upstairs in a little mezzanine,) and a third bathroom for common use.

There is also an extra bed and desk downstairs, in the nanny's floor.

The building is about 500 years old. We are in a very quiet neighborhood, in the heart of town, but far from discos and bars of Santa Croce or Duomo area, so that we can happily rest at night.

The best thing about our home is a sunny courtyard; very rare for a house in the centre of Florence - where you can enjoy the sun and have a meal or cup of tea and relax at the end of a sight-seeing day.

More about us

  1. I'm a florentine journalist and I have lived abroad most of my professional life, in the Balkans, North Africa and the Middle East: I came home to Florence 10 years ago, and now I'm raising my three kids - born as children of the world - as little Florentines.

  2. I love travelling, but we have the privilege to live in this beautiful city (and region, Tuscany) so we haven't really moved around much since we came back: now kids have grown up (the oldest is 22, the twins 13) and it's time to take a look at the world again.

Where is it?


This new apartment is located in the very heart of town, 5 min away from San Lorenzo (The Medici Chapels), Piazza San Marco (Academy Gallery with the David by Michelangelo), the Duomo area, in a quiet street with garages.

In this same street, anciently called 'via Mozza', Michelangelo had its own workshop. The famous San Lorenzo market (handcrafts, gifts) is less than 5 minute walk.

Newspapers, pharmacy, banks, coffee shops, restaurants, pubs, churches, and all kind of shopping facilities are all around.

The apartment is at 1 km distance from the S.Maria Novella rail and bus station, so it is very easy to make daily excursions to the main sites of Tuscany, including San Gimignano, Lucca, Siena.

You definitely do not need the car to come to Florence and Tuscany!

The flat is also 5 minutes away from the park and Congress Hall of La Fortezza, the most famous exhibitions centre of the city (and also excellent site for jogging!).
