When summer edition of Pitti Bimbo is approaching, we are always hesitant about finding an hotel in Florence. A very hot town in summer, crowded of tourists, with many solutions of accommodation already full just because of the fair. We often stayed in the immediate vicinity of Florence, but it was not an optimal solution neither for me, as I needed to be in the center of Florence early in the morning, neither for Sissi and dad, who wanted to visit museums.
This time we found a perfect accommodation in Florence, in a central location (the most central that any tourist would want): overlooking Piazza della Signoria!
We could conclude this article here: the view of Halldis Signoria Vista (the name of the accommodation pays homage to the beautiful location) is unique in the world. It is worth to stay in this apartment just only for the view.
An accomodation worth for its windows. From the second floor of a historic building with entrance on Piazza della Signoria two large windows look all the famous monuments: Palazzo Vecchio, Loggia dei Lanzi, Fontana del Nettuno, you see can see Uffizi. You will not get tired of looking through the window, you will not get tired of taking pictures from every angle. Every time that wandering through the spacious apartment Signoria Vista you will pass near these two windows your look will rests on the beautiful monuments. That view will become almost magnetic for your eyes.
Signoria Vista: the accommodation in Florence for those who love art and history
Signoria Vista is the ideal accommodation in Florence for those who want to immerse themselves in the medieval and Renaissance history of the city, but not only: monuments and museums are at hand, and not far away you will also find the shopping streets (exclusive boutiques and the shops of the biggest Italian fashion brands are located along the nearby via Tornabuoni, via Calzaiuoli and Via del Corso) and many restaurants. You can forget the car and, even with young children, you will be able to walk. If you decide to arrive by train, Santa Maria Novella Railway Station is not far away, mind if you decide to move by car, you can take advantage of daily garages (despite the ZTL, traffic limitation).
Signoria Vista can accommodate up to 4 people, it has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, for a total of about 100 sqm. The apartment has an entrance with a usefulcloset, a living room with a view of beautiful Piazza della Signoria, a kitchen with dining area, a double bedroom for kids, a large bathroom with shower, a wonderful double bedroom with a beautiful en suite bathroom with shower. The fast Wifi network is available throughout the apartment.
The comfort of an apartment is also in the possibility to have a kitchen: if you do not want to eat in the restaurant at every meal or to organize your breakfast, in the surroundings you will find numerous grocery stores and supermarkets. You can also opt at any time for delivery services like Just Eat.
Parking in the centre of Florence: is this really a problem?
The historical centre of Florence has a limited traffic area (ZTL) and therefore there are special rules for accessing or parking in this area. Fines can be very high, but in the surroundings of the apartment there are many street parking lots (bordered by blue stripes! Do not use those with white stripes that indicate parking reserved for residents!)that can be used in time slot 8:00 – 20:00. Alternatively, you can park in a private garage: we booked the garage Inferno online and we saved enough compared to standard rates!
