Strozzi Florence apartment is located in the most upscale area of the historic center of Florence. Step out the door of the apartment building and find “miracle mile” Via Tornabuoni just half-a-block away, lined with beautiful Renaissance buildings, now filled with wonderful shops, luxury hotels and designer boutiques. Just two blocks to lovely Piazza della Repubblica, a famous backdrop for so many period films including 'Room With a View', 10-minute walk to the charming Ponte Vecchio and famous Uffizi art museum.

Take a walk through the Strozzi apartment by viewing the video. See link above.

The apartment gets its name from Palazzo Strozzi, one block away, which is widely regarded as the finest example of Renaissance architecture in Florence. The comfortable and conveniently located Florence Strozzi apartment offers an excellent historic location, modern conveniences, hard-to-find center of town quiet for sleeping, and a bevy of wonderful museums, cafés, tempting gourmet food purveyors, restaurants, and shopping at the building's doorstep.

This Florence apartment complements our popular Prisco (VRBO 52284) and Michaela (VRBO 58566) Florence vacation apartments which are located in the same building. It is located on the third floor of a Renaissance building with elevator, off a gracious private hallway. Since it on the back of the building it faces the back of the apartment behind. It's a welcome retreat from the bustling streets of central Florence, providing a glimpse into the daily lives of Florentines who live and work in the historic center.

The apartment faces the internal courtyard of the building and has a sunny terrace off the living. The small terrace doesn’t provide any views other then to the backs of the neighboring apartments, service terraces and laundry lines. The terrace is furnished with a table and 2 chairs providing a sunny, peaceful retreat in the midst of Florence.

The living room sofa bed converts to two twin beds. The French doors opening onto the terrace get good light. There is an efficiency kitchen for preparing simple meals. When the doors to the kitchenette are closed it looks like an antique armoire in the corner of the living room. The kitchenette is adequate for light meal preparation due to limited countertop space.

The bedroom is comfortable with two twin beds which can be made up as a king upon request, and a set of double windows overlooking the internal courtyard. The dressing room area that leads from the bedroom to the bathroom has large, floor-to-ceiling storage closets and a full-length mirror.

The white-tiled bathroom has a good-sized shower, washing machine and French doors that open to a second small internal terrace which is perfect for hanging laundry.

Within the same building are our Prisco VRBO #52284 and Michaela VRBO #58566 vacation rental apartments.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our stay at the Strozzi was just great. Our hosts met us at the apartment just as arranged and helped us with directions and everything we asked of them. The Strozzi is so beautifully located. We had favourite restaurants, cafes and trattorias within a couple of minutes walk! The apartment is huge. We couldn't believe our luck after small places we had stayed at elsewhere in Europe. We would highly recoomend the apartment and would not hesitate to use Italy Perfect again. Professionalsm is everything when booking a holiday

Best Location in Florence

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Florence in large part because of the incredible location and ambiance of this apartment. Our hosts were warm welcoming and very helpful. We would have liked another week to stay. We were able to do a little cooking in the tiny kitchen set up although with all the great restaurants we certainly didn't need to. We had everything we needed here including a hairdryer but you can forget your US made curling iron as the electrical system is not built for it. We enjoyed several tours with FlorenceTown which is located only a few blocks away. Our hosts were very helpful providing directions to other attractions, in particular a bus to the basilica of San Miniato on the hill across the Arno. The sunset and the monks chanting Gregorian chants at sunset was a high point for us.

Charming Stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5

We loved the old world charm, history, high ceilings and spaciousness of this comfortably renovated apartment. Franco and Miki‘s warm welcome and their many recommendations for memorable sightseeing and wonderful nearby restaurants contributed to an enchanting time in Florence, characterized by inspiring walks and delectable meals. We appreciated being able to walk from the Strozzi’s convenient location to the nearby train station and all major historic sites. The Mercato Centrale, Rosticceria La Spada eat-in or take-out and Luci al Piazzale (take bus 12 to Piazzale Michelangelo) were some favorite eateries. We are recommending Italy Perfect to friends, having valued their efficiency, accurate attention to detail, restaurant recommendations and travel advice that allowed for a worry-free holiday.

Accommodations were great

  • 5 of 5

Accommodations were great. Charming antiques and furnishings, induction cooktop, microwave, electric kettle, fridge, washing machine, good wifi--all the things that made our stay convenient. The greeters are very kind and helpful. The location was perfect, less than a 10 minute walk to almost everything! We could walk/tour for a while, head back to the apt. to relax and then head out again. It was so much fun to stroll around after sunset and see everything lit up.

The best leather shop we found is Noi, a couple blocks away; not cheap but top quality and very stylish. Buy tickets the day before and then get in line at 8:15am to beat the crowds and climb the Duomo--so interesting and such fantastic views. A block down from the apt., the restaurant La Spada has a great wood fired grill for bistecca alla firorentina.

We booked with confidence, received more helpful info than we were expecting, and everything went smoothly. Lisa even gave very helpful advice about booking the train to Rome to catch our flight back to the States. We will use Italy Perfect again next time we travel to Italy.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by Mikki and Franco outside the apartment building and led upstairs. There is an elevator which helped with the oversized luggage that we will never use again! The apartment is a good size and provides everything you will need for your stay. The kitchen is more like a "kitchen in a cabinet" and space is limited, we found it fun cooking there. We would visit the Mercato Centrale and return with ingredients to make a delicious dinner. The bed was comfortable with adequate pillows and linens. The bathroom was large and equipped with a washing machine and the entire apartment was very clean. The apartment is really located in a great area that makes it easy to walk to nearly everything you would wish to do in Florence. A couple of great restaurants we found were Giovanni and Carozze. Both very nearby and delicious! Mikki and Franco were very helpful and informative. We would definitely recommend this apartment.

We highly recommend this apartment, and are looking forward to staying there again

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently enjoyed a memorable, two-week stay in the Strozzi apartment. The location is superb, with many shops and restaurants on the same street, and the building has the ambience of a stately palazzo. Guests should be aware of the limited cooking facilities, but the kitchenette is functional and more than adequate for our purposes. We had no complaints or issues with the apartment, and the security of the building gave us peace of mind. However, the most valuable assets of this apartment are the owners, Miki and Franco, who are two of the sweetest people we've ever met! They greeted us as if we were family, and went out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. We highly recommend this apartment, and are looking forward to staying there again, or in one of the other two which Miki and Franco own on the same floor, when we return to Florence. Mille grazie, Miki & Franco, for being such wonderful hosts!
