If you would like to stay in the heart of Florence in its most famous piazza, Piazza della Signoria , Sole di Firenze apartment gives you this exceptional opportunity.
The apartment is situated in an old 14th century palace , and the windows of the living-room look right onto the piazza. The view here of the city, renowed for its artistic and architectural treasures, and considered a sort of open-air museum, is quite extraordinary. From the quiet of the apartment you can admire at any time the 13th century Palazzo Vecchio, with its imposing original structure and its medieval fortified characteristics, along with the tower, La Torre di Arnolfo, 95 metres high, which at dusk takes on a soft gold colour; then there is the Loggia dei Lanzi, with its harmonious arches and its spectacular "statue gallery" from the medici collection; the elegant architecture of the Uffizi, the greatest art gallery in Italy; the 16th century Neptune fountain by Ammannati, which the florentines called "Il Biancone" - "the big white one"; and the many statues that adorn the piazza, such as the copy of the famous David by Michelangelo, and the statue of Cosimo the First on a horse by Giambologna.
It's rather like a seat in the front row of a superb art gallery in this unique city.
