Rosella greeted us upon arrival with a bottle of Chianti wine and a warm introduction to her flat. You absolutely cannot beat the location of the property, as it is just steps from Ponte Vecchio where you have scenic views of the Arno River and plenty of shops and restaurants. Rosella even worked a discount for us at a local restaurant, and we liked it so much we ate there twice. You are in the heart of Florence, so sightseeing is very easy and you are 15 minutes max from anything in the city. Somehow the apartment keeps its peace and quiet for such a central location, which was pleasantly surprising. Rosella also provided a rolling grocery bag (similar to a rolling suitcase) that we were able to roll over the bridge to a nearby grocery store, making the shopping experience very easy. On the inside of the apartment, she has decorated the walls with lovely art, giving it even more charm. Sometimes during the day, you can open the windows and hear church bells or even opera-style singers in the distance, providing an appealing ambience. The kitchen had everything we needed and the beds were very comfortable, especially with the air conditioner and the extra fan provided by Rosella. We would recommend this property to anyone, and it will be our first choice when returning to Florence in the future. It is perfect for someone looking to have a real Italian experience in Tuscany with a wonderful and welcoming host. Thank you, Rosella!
