A lovely suite featuring all-white furnishings with a spectacular view to the Ponte Vecchio and the Arno
Set in an extraordinary location along the bank of the River Arno and a few metres from Ponte Vecchio, this is where you'll find the Althea II apartment; a modern, designer suite with a terrace and breathtaking views. This apartment is perfect for a couple on a romantic holiday wishing to really enjoy Florence's many beautiful sights.
The Althea II apartment is a luxurious accommodation, located on the third floor of a building in the historic centre, with elevator access. The large windows looking into the apartment compliment the general rhythm and style of the room, letting natural light flood into the room and transforming the incredible outdoor panorama into a living picture. Fold-away panels, columns and striking architectural features divide the space, furnished in a colour palette of "all-white", into different functional areas. In the living area contemporary elements such as the sofa lie side by side with early 20th century furniture, such as the dining table with chairs and the chaise-longue.
The sleeping area is furnished with a comfortable double bed lit by two very original designer lamps, and an alcove with a glass washbasin serves as an entrance way to the modern bathroom with a shower. A built-in wardrobe conceals a stylish, well equipped kitchen, perfect for those who love to cook while on holiday.
The Althea II apartment also benefits from access to a lovely private terrace with a view. What could be better than having breakfast or a cocktail at sundown while enjoying a view of one of the most famous bridges in the world?
One of the benefits of having two apartments in the same building, like the Althea and Althea II, is that we can accommodate a slightly larger group of friends or family that may want to holiday together in Rome but at the same time enjoy some privacy.
Modern and minimalistic, the stunning Althea II apartment will truly make you fall in love at first sight!
The neighborhood that surrounds the Duomo constitutes the very heart of the historical city center and the area has probably one of the highest concentrations of art per square meter on the whole planet: churches, statues, museums, towers, and historical buildings fill every corner of every street. You can't miss Brunelleschi's magnificent dome atop the rosy marble Cathedral.
If you stay here, you're in the vicinity of practically everything: the Uffizi Museums, Palazzo della Signoria, Palazzo Davanzati, Galleria dell’Accademia, Ponte Vecchio. If you are in need of a break after wondering around this architectural and artistic marvels, you can recharge your batteries at one of the cafés on nearby Piazza della Repubblica.
The streets surrounding the Duomo cater to visitors, with fine dining and exclusive shopping. The top Italian fashion houses are located along Via Tornabuoni , with several others on Via Calzaiuoli and Via del Corso. Souvenir shops abound, as do street performers and caricature artists.
This area is, understandably, the central meeting point and the tourist hub of the city. Probably at night, when the tourist groups disappear, you can better appreciate the magical atmosphere of the most romantic heart of pre-Renaissance Florence.
