Our hostess, Silvia, met us at the train station [we took the train from Rome] and took us to her rental apartment which was clean, well maintained, and we liked the location. We found an excellent restaurant 2 minutes away and a Gelato shop up 1/2 block that was one of the best we found during our month in Italy. We used the main train terminal when we were coming and going. The tram stop from the apt was a 5 minute walk and it ended at the station where we could find a bus that would take us where we wanted to go. Silvia had maps for us and marked where we wanted to go. A bathroom light went out, and Silvia had her father out right away to fix it. I would definitely recommend her apt. We stayed 7 days. If you go to Florence, make a reservation for the Uffizi Gallery at least a month out..
