San Lorenzo area has a lot to offer for local and visitors. It is the most traditional, international and trendy quartier in the heart of Florence. Just a few steps away from the apartment you find Mercato Centrale, Duomo, Accademia Gallery with David, International Art and Cooking Schools, Culture Institutions and Italian and Foreign Universities. This is where we love to stroll, meet people and dine when in town.
GUELFA56 is exceptionally well located in the city of Florence within short walking distance from all the main art sites and Florence's beauties - see details below.
Nested in the very heart of the historical neibourhood of San Lorenzo District, here you will experience Florence as a local and...you will probably love what we love too. Infact the quartier is filled with restaurants, wine bards, workshop, art galleries, cultural institutions and artists' studios and offers offers an intense cultural and social life with vernissage, exhibitions, events open to local and foreign people.
Plus San Lorenzo is also a very multicultural area with international shops and restaurants for casual and fine dining. Here we experiment ethnic cuisine and buy the best exotic spices and ingredients in town for our home cooking.
Our Tip: fill your Florence schedule with cultural visits but make sure you have time for indulging yourself: a lazy Italian breakfast at the nearby open café in the "Piazza", a lunch at local street food stalls queing with locals, a refreshig and pleasant late afternoon aperitivo under the "Loggiato", a dinner in a tipycal "Trattoria" with traditional food and genuine wine and then stroll in wine bars, pub and lovely cafés of the neighbourhood.
