The Oltrarno is Florence’s rive gauche, and even though this quarter lies beyond the Arno river and contains part of the city’s historical center, compared to the other side, it is calmer and certainly more authentic. Named “Florence’s best kept secret” by the Wall Street Journal, Oltrarno, is where you can find the real soul of the city, the one made day by day by its inhabitants: open street markets selling zero-km products (food sold within very few kilometers from where it has been harvested), locals at work, artisan shops, and a plethora of the city’s best restaurants serving farm-to-table food. In this vivid neighborhood, you can rent the picture-perfect Turan, a luxury apartment with an exceptional amenity: one of the most privileged and stunning views of Florence you can find!

The original architectural details of the house such as the blond-wood parquet floors and the classy coffered ceilings are combined with the beautiful wall boiserie/shelving unit, crisp white curtains and white twin sofas to ensure that the space is elegant and yet practical and functional. The small-sized fully equipped pristine kitchen boasts a gorgeous marble countertop and backsplash along with all the necessary high-end appliances for preparing even the most impressive of meals. A laundry room with washer and dryer completes the floor.
Perfect for two couples, Turan is an exceptional apartment to rent in Florence. It is a very chic residence located in one of Florence’s most charming neighborhoods. In this area, you can visit Palazzo Pitti, Boboli Garden, Brancacci Chapel, the Basilica of S. Maria del Santo Spirito and Piazzale Michelangelo, where all the postcards photographers get their shots of Florence. If you want to take your own postcard picture, do not forget to shoot one of Ponte Vecchio and Uffizi Gallery from your window!

What to do in Florence City
Florence, a medieval city of timeless artistic beauty is there to be discovered. The beautiful Cathedral of Santa Maria Del Fiore, the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella, the Pitti Palace, and Ponte Vecchio are only few of the city’s most famous architectural masterpieces. Check at least one of its museums – we like the Academy of Fine Arts, which houses Michelangelo’s superb David. Stroll the narrow streets of Florence, the cradle of the Reinassance, and marvel at the richness of this real open museum. Enjoy a cappuccino on one of its piazzas, or a colorful gelato to cool off the summer heat. Whatever you do, don’t pinch yourself…you are not dreaming!
