Apartment for rent from € 49/day in EmpoliName/Address:
Empoli is about 20 km southwest of Florence, on the banks of the Arno. It lies on a plain formed by the river itself. The commune's territory becomes hilly further from the river. Empoli is on the main railway line from Florence to Pisa, with another line running to Siena. It is 8km south of Vinci, the birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci.
Empoli has a long tradition as an agricultural centre but also for the production of glass.
The apartment is on the top floor of a 3 storey building. It sleeps 4 people and consists of 2 large rooms and a bathroom. It has its own independent heating system and hot water constantly available. It is well insulated against the cold in the winter and the heat in the summer.
All necessary items are provided in the apartment such as washing machine, stove, refrigerator, cooking utensils, bed sheets and towels.
At a time when the centre of cities like Florence have been handed over to tourist accommodation this remains an authentic working countryside village.
Within a stone's throw of the apartment are all the essential amenities such as grocery stores, restaurants and the Casa del Popolo, which despite its deceptively small facade hides a large auditorium which through the aid of clandestine satellite technology has been transmitting live football matches for the last 15 years. For big games we have 100s of people crowded in there.
