Alessandro Berni purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Alessandro Berni chose Historic Center

The two apartments are located in the wonderfull Oltrarno area of Florence. The Oltrarno is full of kind restaurant, bar and shops. It's the ideal place to stay for anyone wanting to be away from the crowds and mobs of tourists, but within a quick and easy walk of all of the well-known sights and treasures. The apts are located close to the acient wall of the historic city centre. All the rooms are very spacious and at the same floor.

What makes this apartment unique

The Location: It's the ideal place to stay for anyone wanting to be away from the crowds and mobs of tourists, but within a quick and easy walk of all of the well-known sights and treasures.

The Giotto and Dante apartments: The two apartments are roomy, peaceful, light and airy, perfectly maintained. They are well-equipped with linens, appliances, internet, kitchen goods. All the rooms of both units are at the same level and are very cozy and spacious.

The quitness: The lovely gardens in back provide a tranquil oasis in a city without much green space in the center.

Comfortable: supermarkets (2) within a 5-10 minute walk (and the farther one - Esselunga -- has HOME DELIVERY - see their web site). Restaurant (Sabatino, Tranvai, Antica Bettola) 5 minute walk.

Excellent apartment and location

  • 5 of 5
We spent 4 nights in the Giotto apartment in September and can highly recommend it. We had no trouble locating the apartment and even walked to it from the train station - about a 15 minute walk with luggage and traffic dodging. Enrico met at promptly at the arranged time and showed us through the apartment. The apartment was clean and contained everything you need in terms of amenities. WiFi worked well which was important to our two teenage daughters. Our time in Firenze was relatively short (4 nights) and so were kept busy during the day. We were able to walk to all the major sites and found the best sandwich shop in the world not far from the Duomo - all' Antico Vinaio. All communication with Alessandro was prompt and informative. We would be very happy to stay here again.

quiet apartment near Florence

  • 5 of 5
LOVED THIS APARTMENT!! My sister & I stayed here for 8 nights and just could not have been happier. Just remember, it's on the "Italian 1st floor" which means two flights of stairs. But you are inside an inclosed area so no worries about weather. The owners brother, Enrico, met us to let us in (2 hrs earlier than normal check in time) and went over all things concerning the apartment ie: how to operate oven, dw, washer, A/C, etc. I forgot to ask about tv but figured it out eventually. We even made sure my iPad was connected to wifi and I was able to contact him directly with any needs. Excellent communication with owners. He also recommended some nearby restaurants, bus stops, etc. The apartment itself was very nicely decorated, very clean and perfectly suited to our needs. The kitchen had everything necessary and each afternoon and morning we opened the doors to get a nice breeze. Clothes drying stand on the balcony came in handy, even brought it inside on a rainy day. No screens on the windows so we had to close them at night (keep out mosquitos). Double glazing on the street side windows kept the noise level down as the apartment is on a busy, 4 lane street and the occasional ambulance. The bathroom was great, even having an extra sink just outside the shower area next to the washing machine. Made it nice for two women getting ready each day. There are a few small shops nearby, including a bakery, gelato (we didn't try it, sorry) and a nice, small grocery store with excellent prices ($4.00 bottle of great red wine!!) within walking distance just west of the apartment across the street. Could buy bus tickets at a bookstore just across from bus stop at Piazza Torquato Tasso in the opposite direction. We did walk to the city center one day and decided the buses are the way to go, especially after walking all day. But it is doable and seems to be quite safe, even in the evening. I don't know if I would walk after midnight, alone anyway. With the buses you can go anywhere, either side of the bridge. We did get on the wrong one sometimes, but were able to get to our destination eventually. And for 1.2 euros for 90 minutes, they were well worth it. Just be sure to validate as we did see some kids get caught and ticketed one day for trying to get a 'free ride'. Check out was easy. Took a few minutes and we were out the door to catch our buses to the airport. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone!!

Beautiful historic palazzo in a wonderful location

  • 4 of 5
An amazing historic home with the main rooms beautifully decorated in original 17th century frescoes combined with newly installed kitchen and bathroom. Great location a few steps from the Santa Spirito piazza which has a great selection of restaurants and bars used by locals and tourists alike. Within 10-15 minutes walk of all the major historic sites.

Dante Apartment

  • 4 of 5
The Dante apartment is a tastefully decorated and well equipped. The photos really don't do it justice. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the owner was very welcoming and helpful. The apartment is around 20 minutes walk into the centre of Florence where you can experience all the local attractions easily on foot. We would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to others.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5
We spent two wonderful weeks at this apartment in Florence. Everything was as described. It is well located, convenient both for visits in town and of the small towns in Tuscany. The apartment is full of light, spacious, with two very big rooms and everything to make you feel comfortable, so coming back at the end of the day was like coming back home. The owners were very nice and ready to help us, and our dog was also very comfortable there with the balcony to lie in the sun. We would definitely go back in our next visit to Florence.
