This Tuscany apartment in Florence sits on the south side of the river Arno, with views of the Uffizi. Enjoy the comfortable and characteristic decor of your Florence accommodation, or go out into your local neighborhood to shop and dine to your hearts' content. Of course you'll also be spending a great deal of time just on the opposite side of the river, in the heart of historic central Florence, when staying at this Tuscany holiday apartment.
This palazzo dates back to the 15th century, when the banks of the Arno River were flanked by palazzi (palaces) belonging to patrician families such as the Bardis. The edifice was modified over the centuries until the mid-19th century, when a famous architect, Enrico Poggi, endeavored to transform Florence into a capital city. He modeled the palazzo after the Lungarno Torrigiani area in order to maintain the classical renaissance color palette of cream plaster and gray “pietra serena” stone, which is visible in so many buildings throughout the city. A daytime doorman is available and each apartment is made secure with a bell and a buzzer.
