This is a truly wonderful place to stay in Florence. The apartment is centrally located, two blocks from the Duomo and Accademia, as well as a short walk from the Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi, fashion retail district, and the best restaurants. And the apartment is located with plenty of shade on the second floor of an extremely safe building, offering all of the amenities one could ever want -- extremely clean, tastefully decorated, and spacious rooms that include an office along with a sizable bathroom.

Perhaps most importantly, the owners are wonderful people. They went out of their way to resolve problems, answer questions, and offer excellent suggestions. They were easy to deal with, as well as prompt and generous with respect to every phase of the rental. I cannot say enough about how convenient and convenient they made my first trip to Florence. I have traveled extensively, and this is at the top of the places to stay.

This charming apartment in an old Palazzo in the centre of Florence is very  comfortable, well-appointed, clean, easy to live in, and marvellously located. The rooms are well-proportioned, high-ceilinged, well-furnished. The owners are exceptionally well organised in everything from contractual arrangements to instructions for using the apartment and certainly made everything very easy. The apartment's location between the Duomo and the Galleria del' Academia is super, on a busy street that is not too noisy. As the historic centre of Florence is small, from the apartment, it is a short walk to historic sites, museums, palazzi and to all the places we wanted to visit. We recommend this apartment most highly.  Excellent Joan 8/5/2012 3:33:00 AM
