Europe / Italy / Tuscany
Few cities can rival Florence, which is, in its entirety, a monument to the Renaissance.
Walking through the narrow streets of the city and bewitched by its beauty, few can imagine the gems that hide on its rooftops. Standing within the heart of the medieval city’s center, and inside a historical palazzo, Nau is one of those gems: a beautifully renovated penthouse duplex that provides more than just a luxury accommodation to those who want to visit the city; in fact, if you can handle the almost 90 steps to reach the apartment, you will be rewarded with having Florence at your feet! Nau is designed on two floors, a lower floor which comprises the bedrooms and bathrooms, and the upper floor which includes the social space and kitchen, all timeless and yet contemporary. Here at Nau, you will be wrapped in comfort and indulgent luxury, not to mention gifted with a 360-degree view of Florence.
A bright and beautifully decorated living room welcomes you on the top floor of the apartment, via a set of 15 steps with a wrought-iron handrail. The elegance of this space is dramatized by its beamed ceilings, large windows with flowing curtains, classic blond-wood furniture and romantic white upholstered seating. Most importantly, this beautiful room features two terraces – each on opposite sides – where guests can enjoy a meal or a drink while marveling at the spectacular sunsets. The fully equipped kitchen blends smoothly with the rest of the room, and the what may be for some ‘boring’ chore of cooking now feels instead fun-filled thanks to the room’s vibrant atmosphere and sensational views. A washer and a dryer are also available in the unit.
Perfect for fit and active guests, two couples or a couple with two teenagers, Nau is rare find to rent in Florence. If a four-floors walk-up is your cup of tea, you will not regret staying here. Every major Florentine site is within a 10-minute walk; the urban noise is kept to a minimum; and, finally, also you will get to have your very own “room with a view”!
