Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Silvia, we are leaving your apartment today after having a great time in Florence. We really appreciate the gifts that you provided for us and were impressed by the restaurant that you recommended.

There are so many things in the Florence area that we would like to see that we hope to come back again some day.

Good luck with the baby.





Best wishes

As advertised and more

  • 5 of 5
Kudos to Sylvia for providing a home away from home. Perfect location for enjoying Florence (20 minute ride by bike to center of time, or 10 minute subway to train station), and yet able to get away from crowds. Apartment as advertised, Sylvia always available for advice and help if needed. Being picked up at train station and being provided with basics for first day (pasta, sauce, wine, fruits etc) was greatly appreciated. Definitely recommend this property.

Clean, well kept, good location

  • 5 of 5
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..

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was the perfect place to explore all of Florence and beyond. Sylvia was extremely helpful in sharing areas to visit and provided a well stocked kitchen for us to use. Pasta, sauce, wine, cookies were a nice touch and well appreciated. The unit is two blocks from the tram which gets you to to downtown Florence and the train station in 12 minutes. We were able to take the train to Pisa and Lucca with no trouble and Siena is also accessible by train which I would recommend as parking there is ridiculous.
Thank you Sylvia for sharing your wonderful home. If we return we will definetly contact you.

Florence Delight!

  • 5 of 5
The manager arranged to have her mother meet us at the apartment to give us keys as we arrived early. Silvia then joined us and showed us the apartment. A book was provided with useful information regarding Florence. The apartment is very comfortable and well maintained. The kitchenette allowed us to buy some foods locally (market just down the street) and have available for snacks and light meals. Centrally located and close to the tram stop. We enjoyed the Uffizzi, Bargello, and the Academia. Silvia had made our museum reservations for us which was very helpful. Also enjoyed great food and gelatto! Took the bus to the highest point in the city for wonderful views! Would highly recommend and would stay again on a return visit to Florence! Thanks Silvia!

Great Location, Value, and Hospitality

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I stayed at this wonderful apartment for 4 nights. This was our first visit to Italy and the Florence area. Silvia communicated with us months before our arrival and made sure that everything was going to be ready for our arrival. We were greeted by her Father who provided a heartwarming welcome to us and showed us the amenities of the apartment. This was followed by a welcoming visit by Silvia who made sure we had everything we needed and gave us a great deal of suggestions for day trips in and out of the city. The location was wonderful... a 5 min walk to the tram which brought us right downtown to the transportation center. It was so easy to use, very clean and safe. We rented a car for a few days and Silvia made sure we had off street parking too!
During our stay she would communicate by email to make sure everything was ok and offered her help in suggesting areas to visit and the easiest way to get there. This being our first time doing a short term stay at an apartment I must say that all our expectations were exceeded and we would recommend this apartment and Silvia to anyone. The Beds were so comfortable and warm that it really made you feel that you were "home". The free Wi-Fi, and other features of the apartment made the stay so enjoyable we really felt bad we had to leave.
Anyone booking this apartment will not be disappointed! THANK YOU SILVIA FOR A WONDERFUL TIME AND INCREDIBLE MEMORIES.

Discover Florence and Tuscany

  • 4 of 5
The apartment was exactly as described, and is located in a suburb a short tram ride from central Florence. We had booked two weeks, but we accepted the owner's advice that was probably more than was necessary to see all of Florence. We also did not want to rent a car, but travelled around by public transport to Fiesole, San Giminagno and Venice. The local shops and small market met our needs, but you do need to bear in mind that they will be closed on Sunday. The local public transport provider, ATAF, also closes its office on Sunday and the tourist information office does not sell tickets. As in the rest of Italy, tobacconists sell transit tickets, but often only have a limited range available. The tram service between Federiga and Stazione is fast and frequent. You can also transfer to the Centro Storico minibus circulator services at Porto Prata, which saves quite a bit of walking to the main attractions. There is a huge and surprisingly little used park at Cachine, which would be a good place to visit using the bikes provided.

Via Pisana is a very busy road, and it can be noisy. You will be woken by the truck that collects the recycled bottles in the early morning.

The owner was very helpful with advice and provides a huge binder of information and a well stocked library of books. Wifi worked well and we had no reason at all to turn on the tv.

My apartment is located in Via Pisana,489 50143 FIRENZE at very few steps from the tramway stop named 'FEDERICA'. There is a tramway going each 3 minutes from 5.00 am to 12.30 in the night. It takes 12 minutes from FEDERICA stop to arrive to Florence 's center at the last tramway stop ' FLORENCE TRAIN STATION'.

The tram is the spediest way to get to the centre. The neighborhood is safe, quaint and quiet with small markets, stores, banks nearby.

Therefore if you come by car, you may opt to leave your car in front of the apartment and take the train to move you through Tuscany.

You can park your car freely in front of the apartment or you can choose to park it in a closed parking for 5 €uro per day.

I like taking care of my guests and pointing out my favorite spots in Florence and Tuscany.

In the courtyard of the apartment 2 bicycles are available for guests.In few minutes you can be downtown .

Directions:By CAR: from the A1 autostrada (highway) exit at FIRENZE SCANDICCI and follow the sign FIRENZE.

Florence is an excellent base from which to visit the beautiful Tuscan towns of :SIENA, PISA, LUCCA, AREZZO, the CHIANTI area, the Termal waters SPA of Rapolano Terme, Bagno Vignoni etc..
