The San Lorenzo Market in the center of Florence, just a stone’s throw away from Piazza Duomo, is one of the best known and most popular areas of the city: it stretches from Piazza San Lorenzo, with its great Basilica and the Medici Chapels, all the way to Via dell'Ariento, also occupying all the surrounding streets. The colorful stalls and stores offer all kinds of products: clothing, leather items (bags, jackets and accessories), souvenirs and much more, along with traditional wine merchants’ shops and taverns offering excellent Florentine cuisine at reasonable prices. In the center of this district is the Central Market, undoubtedly the best food market in the city, a huge covered pavilion which was built around 1870 using the most innovative materials of that era (cast iron, iron and glass). Inside the pavilion the numerous aisles, similar to little alleyways, make the market feel like a small town filled with stores offering a vast selection of extremely fresh, reasonably priced food products (meat, fish and vegetables). These two beautiful, recently renovated apartments are located on the third floor of a building situated directly opposite the Central Market, the throbbing heart of the city: bright, colorful and tastefully furnished, with wooden floors, beautiful modern kitchens, efficient bathrooms, air conditioning and TV in all the bedrooms, stereo (USB flash drive and Ipod compatible base), and Wi-fi internet connection. They have a small communal entrance which means that they can also be rented together. From the windows of the apartments it is possible to enjoy atmospheric views of the Medici Chapels, part of the Basilica of San Lorenzo and Giotto’s bell tower. A perfect place from which to discover this city and its many marvels.

"We were spending several weeks in Italy, and wanted to take a short side trip to Florence. The Mercato di San Lorenzo apartment was perfect for us. It is within easy walking distance from train station and an easy walk to all of the sights of Florence. The apartment, itself was absolutely lovely. It had everything that we needed. House Manager met us and explained everything. He pointed out some of the best places to eat in Florence and the major sightseeing destinations...the apartment is across the street from the Central Mercato and the Florence leather vendors. All in all, the apartment was exactly what we were looking for. Thank-you for everything

"The apartment is in mint condition and provides all installations and equipment you need for your stay in Florence. The place is spacious with ample storage room, easy to live in with two persons, suitable as well for three due to the pull out sofa in the kitchen/living room. The kitchen is very thoughtfully equipped, all is very clean and neat. The place has an aircondition which was very useful when we had 36’C in the hot summer days. All windows have shutters as well. The apartment is on the top floor and can be reached by elevator. Security locks are installed.
The apartment is just opposite the Mercato Centrale, a lovely space to shop freh meat, fruits and vegetables. Very good dining facilities open till late in the night. And a cooking school for Italian dishes.
With this location, you can reach all sights by walking. It is very calm in the night.
All over we would strongly recommend to stay in this apartment for a trip to Florence.

Best regards,

"Thank you for your email re our stay in Florence. I cannot tell you enough how wonderful it was.
The apartment that was organized for us at Mercato San Lorenzo could not have been better.
It is an easy 8 min. walk to Duomo.
I travel quite a bit and do not usually use public transport. I did here and it was very easy.
The location was second to none. it was in perfect condition, fully equipped with everything one could need, right down to a sewing kit, clean , the security was fantastic and I have already told so many people about it that I think you will be hearing your phone ringing very soon.
My sisters who live in Queensland joined us for the 3 of the 4 weeks we were there said they would be recommending the apartment to all of their friends as well.
We had the great pleasure of meeting the owner and he is such a gentleman and went out of his way to make us feel very happy.
He gave us good handbooks and also wine.
Linen and towels were changed as scheduled and we were given plenty.
The apartment is 10 minutes from all major sites and I know if you recommend it to anyone they will be as happy as we were.
Many thanks for a wonderful experience.
We were very happy with the apartment and will look forward to booking again in the future.

Best regards.

"Thank you for your email and here you have our feedback about the apartment Mercato di San Lorenzo:

Great location and very quiet. We loved the elevator and it was crucial for our stay. The space was very clean and we had almost all the amenities that we could need. It was easy to book and pay for. We especially appreciate the high chair that you found, as that made the stay so much more comfortable with our son.

There was no sugar in the apartment. There was coffee and tea and salt, but no sugar. Some sugar would have been ice.

I hope this is helpful.

Thank you,
(September 2014)
