Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are living in a very alive neighbourhood. The name of this area is "Porta Romana". The old "Porta" (means "door") is the former access to the city in its walls, and both the walls and the old porta are still there!!! You could enjoy the green area close to our place (boboli gardens, viale dei colli, marignolle, etc), the ancient city monuments and museums, or the many shops around the corner where you could find bus stop, taxi stop, food shops, laundry, beauty center, gym center with Turkish bath, a quality dancing school with yoga classes, a bookshop, a quality restaurant, etc. From our home you can walk into the monumental area. Or you can start a very nice walk to the Piazzale Michelangelo through a very green area where you can also run for fitness if you like it.
We have bikes and could eventually leave you the access. Just contact us and we will find the appropriate accomodation solution for you!
