Area & Experiences
In the heights of Florence, in the peaceful district of San Niccolo, the statue of Michelangelo watches over the roofs of the city. From there, a panoramic view of the arts capital stretches: the top of the Duomo, the gardens of Palazzo Pitti, the Basilica of Santa Croce and the Ponte Vecchio, suspended over the river. On the other side, the hills extend as far as the eye can see. You can already discern the vineyards of Chianti in the distance. The apartment is at the foot of Piazzale Michelangelo. From its large windows, you have the prime spot to watch the sunset over the Uffizi Gallery, right in front of you.
