The Apartment

Apartmento Ricorboli is a one one-bedroom property which sleeps two people. The large living area is comprised of an open kitchen and living room with a separate dining room. There are two marble tiled bathrooms, each with a shower, toilet, bidet and sink. The apartment is new, contemporary and, at 800 square feet (78 m. sq) is very spacious. Two exceptional features are the abundance of natural light provided by the many windows and the unique off-white tile flooring, a specialty of the architect.

The location is outside Florence’s restricted traffic zone. Driving in the neighbourhood does not require special authorization or passing under the transponder detectors. Metered pay parking is on-street or in one of two nearby parking areas at a cost of 1,00€ per hr between 0800 and 2000. (http://en.comune.fi.it/administration/mobility/florence_by_car.html)
