Alessandra, the owner & manager of the Old Bridge Apartment
A real Florentine born and breed in Florence, I had the privilege to grow up in this beautiful corner in Florence: my father bought this property in 1964, he was a lawyer, and he worked there for more than 40 years together with my mother. I have countless memories of afternoons spent doing my homework in what is now the living area of the apartment. Gazing at the Ponte Vecchio was not an option while figuring math problems or writing Italian papers!
