The neighborhood is full of all kinds of amenities. At about 50 meters there is a very stocked supermarket. In the immediate vicinity there are many typical restaurants, where you can enjoy both a great pizza and a delicious Florentine steak. In the evening, especially in summer, strolling through the streets of the nearby old town you can enjoy great ice cream and enjoy the magical atmosphere of the city. The neighborhood is very busy but not noisy, and very close to the main artistic attractions of the city. In about 15 minutes they can reach Cathedral Square and Piazza della Signoria. The area of the center is almost all pedestrian, but close to the apartment are located the stops of public transport and taxis, very useful for those who were tired of walking.
