    The SpaceThis clean and quiet apartment is located in a small village near Empoli, just 3km from the railway station and with easy access to the superstrada (SGC Firenze Pisa Livorno). It is ideally situated for a tour of Tuscany. 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, drying rack, iron and ironing board, 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. HISTORY Archaeological digs have ascertained that Empoli was inhabited from the first Imperial Age until the fourth century. Amphorae were produced in the area and sold up and down the river. The Romans certainly settled here and gave the town the name ‘Portù’ as it functioned as a port that bordered the Via Quinctia road leading from Florence to Pisa. The Via Salaiola also passed close to Empoli. This road passed through Volterra and was used for transporting salt. The origins of the name ‘Empoli’ are debated although it is known that the town was called ‘Emporium’ or ‘Empolis’ as early as the eighth century. BATTLE FOR CONTROL The town belonged to the Guidi family in 1119 but came under Florentine rule in 1182. Once Empoli had become an important fortress, it was raided many times. In the meantime, the local farming industry grew and the town even gave its name to a species of artichoke. In the twentieth century there was a flourishing glass working industry although most of the glass factories are closed today. HIGHLIGHTS Like many Italian towns, Empoli today is famous for its ‘passeggiata’: when many people come into the centre to take a stroll before dinner. The classic route round the city starts in Piazza Farinata degli Uberti, goes left in Via Giuseppe del Papa, then into Via Ridolfi, left along Via del Giglio and finally, after the fourth left turn, back into Piazza Farinata. Traditionally, men walked in one direction and women in the other. There has been a Thursday market held in the town since the eleventh century. The market’s location has moved many times – today it is held near Castellani Stadium – but the day has never changed. There are two traditional annual festivals: the Corpus Domini Festival and the September Festival.

Other Things to NoteAbout the Church of Saint Michele Archangelo in front of the house: A Ecclesiam Sancti Michaelis in Impore appears cited April 30 780 in the foundation of the abbey of San Savino in Pisa , but it's probably a fake. The first certain document is dated 10 December 1119 when his parishioners were forced by Conti Guidi to move around the parish church of Sant'Andrea to go about populating the new center of Empoli. In 1192 the church of San Michele was confirmed by Pope Celestine III to the parish church of Empoli. In 1258 the Ecclesia Sancti Angeli de Empoli Veteri was again confirmed to the parish Empoli by Pope Alexander IV ; at that time the church enjoyed a good economic situation confirmed the tithes paid in that century and the archive of the church, which still exists and stored at Pisa . Although the oldest document of this church is a fake, the abbey of San Savino was up, however, the patronage of the church and this privilege remained until 1561 when it passed to ' Order of Santo Stefano ; in 1651 the same order undertook extension work, cant and decoration. In 1673 , during an apostolic view, was called "the church small but decent" since it has only one altar, a font of column, a bell tower, a parsonage and its cemetery fenced, placed in front of the facade. In 1787 the church was deconsecrated and annexed to the nearby church of Santa Maria a Ripa ; shortly after the building was sold to private owners, and over the centuries has gradually degrading fiction before having barn, tool shed and then finally of fermentation room. A few years ago it ended the restoration works that have recovered the original architectural structures still exist and where reinstated parts sketchy transforming the building into a private residence.

                                        This clean and quiet apartment is located in a small village near Empoli, just 3km from the railway station and with easy access to the superstrada (SGC Firenze Pisa Livorno). It is ideally situated for a tour of Tuscany. 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.
