Spacious apartment with outstanding appeal, with three bedrooms in the oldest part of the heart of Florence
The Sibelius apartment is a refined, stylish accommodation immersed in the heart of the oldest, most lovely part of the city, on a street from where you will be able to easily access all the monuments and works of art that have made Florence famous. It is a magnificent choice for large groups coming to Florence for a holiday or for business.
Located on the second floor of a traditional building without elevator access (42 steps plus 12 steps), the Sibelius apartment is a completely refurbished lodging with elaborately decorated rooms, rich in ambiance and character. Dominant elements include the warmth of the wooden décor and the lightness coming from the bright colours of the walls, constantly delighting guests with differing and surprising angles, and furnished with classic objects along with other pieces with masses of character.
On the first level is the dining-room, with a table and wooden chairs, adjoining a welcoming kitchen decorated in wood and marble. On the same level there are two double bedrooms (one is more secluded with space to hang your belongings in the corner, and the other is large and bright with a wardrobe), and a bathroom with a stone washbasin and a shower.
A stairway leads to the large attic which is set up as a living-room and contains a wooden bench and a sofa bed (turns into a single bed for the 7th guest), and another sleeping area with a double bed, wardrobe and a TV. Lastly, there is a second bathroom, refined in style and containing a relaxing spa shower.
The Sibelius apartment is a fantastic accommodation which will make your stay in Florence perfect!

Santa Croce is the eastern edge of the historical center along the Arno river and takes the name from the Florence’s pantheon and one of its most remarkable churches. This neighborhood provide a rare glimpse of workaday Florence – an area few tourist penetrate, with lively markets and tiny workshops .
In addition to the great Santa Croce church and its museum, the other main cultural attractions in this part of the city are the Bargello Palace, which house one of Italy’s most important museum , the Museo Horne, a pleasing collection of art treasures and the Casa Buonarroti, the former home of Michelangelo.
Piazza dei Ciompi is the venue of Mercato delle Pulci, the flea market where you can buy interesting items at modest cost. A short distance to the east, is the Mercato St. Ambrogio, the city centre’s main food market after San Lorenzo. Be aware that the stallholders bring their prices down in the last hour of trading!
You will also find the largest selection of shops, bars and restaurants here. These include the city’s three finest and most expensive restaurants – Cibreo, Pinchiorri and Alle Murate, but also a variety of good mid-price options. By night, this is the liveliest part of town and, with most of its streets pedestrianised and many of the buildings illuminated, the perfect venue for an after-dinner stroll.
