Our location couldnât be more central: you can see the bell tower of the Cathedral in Piazza Duomo from our front windows. The train station is also close, just a 5 minute walk.
The apartment is divided into three bedrooms, a living room with a sofa bed, a dining room, a kitchen, and two bathrooms. The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, oven, etc. There is a computer available for your use, and a wireless high speed internet connection for laptops and portable devices.
Parking for non-residents in the historic center is limited, however we can arrange for a guest parking pass. We would also be open to a car exchange.
The building does not have an elevator.
Pistoia is particularly active in the month of July with two major events, the Giostra dellâOrso, a jousting contest in which different quarters of the city compete, and Pistoia Blues, a major festival that attracts world famous muscians each year.
Pistoia is also home to a thriving daily food market in Piazza della Sala, which has been recognized as one of the finest regional historic markets in Tuscany. This will be your âsupermarketâ as it is just steps from our apartment. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, a much larger market selling clothing and other items is also held on the street where we live.
The downtown area is full of restaurants, wine bars, pubs (most with outdoor seating), food specialty shops, news agents, clothing boutiques--you name it.
For families, Pistoia boasts the largest zoo in Tuscany, many public parks, the closest of which being a converted Medici fortress. Nearby there are also a number of other attractions: an astronomical observatory (in Gavinana), and a wonderful swimming pool surrounded by chestnut trees in the appropriately named Castagno. Pistoia is also just 45 minutes from the sea (Viareggio and other local seaside towns).
For lovers of thermal baths and spas, Montecatine Terme, Monsummano Terme (Grotta Giusti), and Porretta Terme all provide a wide range of services (massages, inhalations, thermal pools, etc.).
The city is also conveniently located near many of the most visited Tuscan cities. Itâs just a 20 minute drive to Florence, 25 to Lucca, and 45 to Pisa. Trains to Florence leave roughly every twenty minutes.
