Made famous by a famous novel by Vasco Pratolini (The girls of San Frediano), Borgo San Frediano is one of the most renowned places in Florence. The district, located in Diladdarno, as the Florentines say, was once home to the workshops of the Oltrarno artisans. Today the district has been elected among the trendiest places in the world. Certainly the intimate and almost magical atmosphere that reigns in the streets of San Frediano helps to accentuate its charm and beauty. With its narrow streets and small pavements overlooked by the artisan shops, San Frediano welcomes tourists and visitors who love to immerse themselves in the most authentic Florence and its history. The Borgo di San Frediano holds artistic treasures of unparalleled beauty such as the Basilica of Santa Maria del Carmine, with the Brancacci Chapel decorated by Masaccio and the Basilica of San Frediano in Cestello. In San Frediano we also find Piazza del Tiratoio, whose name derives from the wool processing plant that once stood here, and was called the tiratoio.Book Now
Among the most fascinating areas of Florence, the San Niccolò district of the Florentine Oltrarno, has to certainly be one. It is not a real historical district, but it is so beautiful and characteristic that over the centuries it has taken on its own physiognomy, a very specific name and a fame that goes beyond the city walls. San Niccolò is the part of Florence that has completely preserved its medieval atmosphere: with the massive 13th century walls still intact and cobbled streets, the San Niccolò neighborhood resembles a small Tuscan village, yet it is extremely close to Santa Croce and Ponte Vecchio.Book Now

Abbiamo noleggiato una vespa elettrica per trascorrere una giornata diversa a Firenze. È stato bellissimo poter girellare comodamente per le vie del centro parcheggiando proprio di fronte alle nostre mete preferite.
Firenze vissuta così è tutta un'altra cosa!! Niente traffico, giri lunghi o problemi di parcheggio. Fantastico. Ci siamo divertiti molto e consiglio a tutti di vivere una Firenze così a portata di mano grazie ad E-Dway!
We rented the e-vespa for 3 days and it has been the most cool and pleasant way to discover not only Florence but also the whereabouts in the Toscana! The service has been very easy-going and friendly, and answered our needs and questions right away on the phone, for example when we were confused on how to use the city charging stations. Very much recommended, a highlight of our trip!
Un modo del tutto nuovo ed innovativo di visitare e conoscere e scoprire Firenze e non solo… un’esperienza da provare e riprovare. Lo consiglio a tutti.
Esperienza del tutto unica, fortunatamente per me anche a due passi dall hotel, personale molto gentile ed educato, anche nel spiegarti e consigliarti che tipo di itinerario poteva piacermi a secondo le mie esigenze.
Mezza giornata in giro per Firenze e fuori porta a visitare posti che magari a piedi ci stavi giorni. Ad un prezzo ragionevole. Non ho avuto bisogno neanche di fare ricarica, ho camminato in modalità Eco,poi le ultime ore in Modalità power. Bellissima esperienza!
