Dante Apartment - Florence

3 Bedrooms (2 double, 1 twin)

Palazzo Lungarno is situated on the south side of the river Arno. On one side, it overlooks Via de' Bardi, and on the other it enjoys spectacular, if not unique, views over the Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi Gallery and the Cathedral. The building's original structure dates back to the 15th century, when a myriad of little cobbled roads branched off from the Ponte Vecchio into the Oltrarno, one of the city's most charming and typical quarters.

The Arno's banks were flanked by buildings belonging to wealthy aristocratic families (e.g. the Bardi family) - for this reason their residences were known as palazzi. Palazzo Lungarno was modified until the mid 19th century when an architect called Enrico Poggi was asked to draw up an architectural and landscape plan to turn Florence into a capital city (a role which it maintained for five years, between 1865 and 1870, following Italy's unification in 1860). Poggi wanted to give Florence a look of uniformity and subdued elegance without creating a violent contrast with its Renaissance architecture. He therefore decided to maintain the Renaissance colour palette of cream plaster and grey pietra serena stone, which is visible in so many buildings throughout the city.

Lungarno Torrigiani was included in Poggi's plan and it is easy to see how he drew inspiration from the more ancient buildings on the river's opposite side. The lungarni together with the viali leading up to the Piazzale Michelangelo were meant to be a place where Florentines could enjoy afternoon strolls and socialize in the open air.

This wonderful spacious flat (133 sq.m. - sleeps 6) has recently been refurbished and is located in a renovated building overlooking the river Arno, 5 minutes walk from Ponte Vecchio.

The entranceway is attractively furnished with a wardrobe and a table with mirror. The entrance gives onto a bedroom containing a double bed, with curtains and bed covers in antique red and ivory. This bedroom, like the adjoining large living room, has a stupendous view of the river Arno, the Uffizi Gallery, and the bell tower of the Palazzo Vecchio. The living room is upholstered in the same antique red and ivory material and contains a handsome sofa, armchairs and chairs, as well as a dining table for 6/8 people. Opposite the living room is a well equipped and light-filled kitchen, with a breakfast table.


The second section of the apartment contains a spacious bathroom (tub and hand shower) and two more bedrooms. The master bedroom enjoys the same spectacular view as the living room. The other double bedroom, with en - suite bathroom (shower) faces onto Via dei Bardi and terracotta roofs. The apartment has a central-heating, air conditioning, telephone (& hi speed internet), bell and buzzer, satellite TV, gas stove, oven, dishwasher and washing machine. There is a daytime porter service and an elevator.
