About Me
Florence is my native city, the place of my childhood and university studies. I am retired professor of liberal studies in the public school . I teached italian language and italian literature in the public school .For the humanistic studies that I have done, I am passionate about every form of art.I have preserved the furniture, objects and paintings of my family, which are still in the apartment. I have collected several English-language art books, with beautiful pictures ,above all on Florence, that I have made available to my guests with the hope that they will love Florence as much as I love it.Thanks .

My husband and I just completed a two-week stay at Rossella’s Uffizi apartment, and it was a wonderful experience. The location was perfect for us, an easy 15-20 minute walk from the train station, and close to all of the places we wanted to see on our first trip to Florence. The apartment itself is beautiful and functional, with plenty of room for the two us. Rossella was a conscientious and generous hostess, providing all the information we needed before and during our stay. We can definitely recommend the apartment, and we hope to come back soon!

I have just spent two and a half months in this wonderful flat. The location is perfect and the flat is charming and comfortable. More importantly, the owner is extremely helpful, accommodating and fair. There are no surprises, which is a huge bonus. I highly recommend the Uffizzi flat and I will book it again next year.

This is a great, very central place to stay in Florence. You can't be closer to just waking up in the morning and popping into the Ufizzi Gallery line-up! It was so convenient staying here for seeing all the sights of Florence. Though the apartment is not the sunniest, it is spacious for a central location and offers you a full bathroom (and bathtub) as well as an elevator in the building (great for those big suitcases!) Rosella was very kind to me, even offering me a free night at the end of my stay when I made a small error with reading my return ticket date. Mille grazie, Rosella!

Rosella's flat could not be in a better location...it is literally steps away from the Uffizzi and the Piazza de la Signoria, and just a few minutes' walk to the Ponte Vecchio. We appreciated the elevator, and the comfortable bed and nice linens. The kitchen was small but provided the basics. The bathroom and bedroom are up a fairly narrow staircase from the living/dining room. Both were roomy and pleasant, with ample closet space. Rosella was very responsive to emails as we were setting up our rental, and was right on time for checking in and checking out. Good Jo Ann 7/5/2018 1:43:00 PM
This lovingly furnished and very reasonably priced apartment is right next to the Uffizi, steps from the Arno, and minutes away from anything else you might want to see, whether you’re in Florence for pleasure or research or both. The layout is clever—it’s a one bedroom on two levels and the foldout guest bed in the living room is excellent. The internet is very reliable.

The small kitchen is well equipped with two electric burners, a microwave and a small fridge. Two Conad supermarkets are quite nearby, and there are great little restaurants around the corner.

Rosella herself is warm, stylish, and helpful, and has thought about everything in the apartment, from décor (as she says, no Ikea!) to local information and lore.

The posted photographs of the apartment are very thorough, and show the architectural charm of the place. You’ll notice that the apartment does not have views or direct sunshine, but it does feel airy and there are ample windows overlooking an interior courtyard. As a consequence it’s quiet and also stays cool in the heat. (I was there into late May when the temperature was rising and the crowds increasing). If you’re out in galleries, churches, and libraries during the day it’s a good retreat at night.

This was my home base in Florence for two months and I was very happy in this apartment.
