Located in a prestigious 17th century palazzo near the Arno River, this elegant apartment is in the very heart of Florence and a moment away from the most important monuments.
The apartment blends 17th century splendor with a central location. The Duomo Cathedral, one of the city’s most famous landmarks, is just 600 meters away. The romantic Ponte Vecchio (“old bridge”), designer shops, art galleries, and museums are all within 1 km. Palazzo Arrighetti is located in the old city center of Florence, where all the major attractions are located. This area is no more than 1.5 km across: everything is within walking distance.
The décor of the interior has been executed in the traditional Florentine style and the rooms are furnished with particular elegance. The original frescoes that colour the ceilings and blend perfectly with colours, materials and fabrics make the apartment unique in its style.
The apartment is on the second floor (approx 80 steps, no elevator); it is 200 mq wide and consists of an entrance way, one double bedroom, one twin-bedroom, three bedrooms that can be arranged either as double or twin, three bathrooms (two with shower and one with bathtub), a full equipped kitchen, and a spacious living room with TV.
