The Prisco apartment is located half a block off fashionable Via Tornabuoni near Palazzo Strozzi. It is on the third floor of a building with an elevator. Restaurants, shops abound in this neighborhood. The apartment is extremely spacious, 85 square meters/900 square feet.

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

The morning sun illuminates the living room and kitchen area. Enjoy the comfort and convenience of an open plan living room and kitchen area. The kitchen table seats up to six people.

Throw open the large living room, bedroom & kitchen windows and enjoy the lively scene below. The apartment features many original Italian antiques, yet the living room maintains a casual feel with a modern Italian sofa that opens to become queen size bed.

In the morning zip down to the bakery that is next door to the apartment building and pick out your morning bread and pastries. At night, enjoy a glass of wine and relax a bit before you head out to one of the many excellent neighborhood restaurants.

The kitchen has a gas range with grill, a large oven, lots of cabinet and countertop space, dishwasher, and a large refrigerator with freezer, pots, pans, dishes.

The spacious master bedroom has high ceilings and a romantic draped queen size bed. A new chaise longue-style single bed in the corner of the bedroom provides an extra sleeping space for a child or small adult since it is slightly smaller than a standard single bed. The bedroom alone is over 40 square meters, or 430 square feet...larger then many Florence apartments! We like to advise guests that since this apartment is in the popular historic center, there can be street noise at night from pedestrians (not cars) down below who are strolling by after a meal at one of the many nearby restaurants. The bedroom & living room windows are double glazed.

Within the same building are our Strozzi VRBO #156858 and Michaela VRBO #58566 vacation rental apartments.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Huge and airy. Clean and comfortable. Fine art pieces. Close to everything. We were able to walk everywhere, and could stop by the apartment if we just wanted a mid-day break. We had every convenience we needed, lots of room to spread out, and the largest bedroom ever! The lovely hosts were very helpful and congenial, and even left coffee, tea and wine for us. The washing machine was a big plus too. I would definitely recommend this apartment (as well as Italy Perfect) to a friend. We would love to go back and stay here again.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful, large apartment in the heart of Florence. We walked everywhere from this central location. The apartment is in a building with an elevator - something that was appreciated after busy full days of sightseeing. It is very comfortable, with a large couch in the well lit living room. The kitchen was very nice, and very functional - including a toaster and an American style coffee maker. The bedroom was huge! Once the windows and shutters were closed, there was no sound or light from outside. The bed was so comfortable, I needed to struggle to get up in the morning! The bathroom was very nice and modern, with plenty of storage room. And above all else, the apartment was very clean. I know that we will want to stay here on our next visit to Florence.

A perfect pied-a-terre in Firenze ....

  • 5 of 5

We've spent many weeks in Firenze across decades of travel in Italy ... the Prisco apartment is one of the nicest we have rented. Location is fantastic in the main shopping area, close to restaurants, shops and sights ... also only a short walk to the delights of the Oltrarno. What made it extra special, however, was the help we received from the delightful owners. I arrived with a sudden and crippling back injury and within hours, they had arranged a wheelchair through the tourist office, which saved our vacation!

More drama ensued upon departure! Late on the evening before, my husband discovered that the elevator was not working. It would have been nearly impossible to get me and our baggage downstairs without it. He called the owners, who promised they would arrive at 8am and that the elevator would be repaired promptly.

They were better than prompt, but brought with them the bad news that a lightning strike had been called for that day by the transit workers and an airport taxi could not be pre-arranged. But dear Miki patted my shoulder and told me not too worry, that she would get things in order. Long story short is that the lift was repaired quickly, a taxi waited outside .... I descended and was met by a line of uniformed repairmen who all shook my hand and assisted my husband with loading our baggage and me into our taxi. When I asked Miki how she had achieved this miracle, she told me she had simply explained to both elevator service and taxi office that she had an injured VIP guest at her apartment who MUST make her flight to Paris and on to her hospital appointment there, and everyone rallied to the common goal!

We adored the spacious and lovely apartment and will always make it our base in Firenze, but we especially loved meeting Miki and Franco .... two of the dearest people ever. Please give them our heartfelt gratitude for turning a challenging event for us into a delightful memory .... they were lifesavers from start to finish of our stay!

And, to Pat and Lisa .... this is our second rental with you (the previous was a week in Rome) ..... We have loved the apartments ... also the info you provide in advance, which is the best and most thorough of any rental agency in a long history of renting homes and apartments in Europe. We applaud you and will remain loyal clients! Sorry it took me such a long time to complete this form .... the back is healing and we look forward to renting with you again!

We felt at home

  • 5 of 5

We just loved our stay at Prisco. The location is perfect,the apartment very comfortable and the owners very kind and helpful. We felt "at home"! We love to cook and the kitchen had all the things you need to prepare lovely meals (and you can shop at nearby Eataly). Within walking distance you can reach very good restaurants, one of my favorites is Trattoria Sostanza , sipping coffee and drink "aperitivo" at Cafe Giacosa it's a must ( in front of the apartment ) and eating panino tartufatto at Procacci.The shops around are very high quality, be sure to walk at Via della Vigna Nuova, and you will find lovely shops and La Duree to eat the best french macarons!

We love Firenze and Tuscany and we definitely will came back, so we recommend this home away from home !! We do recommend Italy Perfect and Paris Perfect as we had rented apartments in both sites and were very satisfied .

A Perfect Week in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Our weeklong stay in Prisco Apartment was a most enjoyable experience. The apartment was quite large, very well appointed (the kitchen was beautifully done and would rival any kitchen in the US), beautifully decorated, and perfectly located. It more than met our expectations. The owners, Miki and Franco, were very helpful in getting us settled in and satisfied our every need, even going beyond the norm by presenting us with a bottle of Champagne and a nice bottle of Italian wine to help us celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. The apartment was very comfortable and it really felt as if we were coming home when we returned each afternoon from our visit to the wonders of Florence. It was truly our home away from home. The locations is perfect, about 10 to 20 minute walk from all of the many exciting attractions of Florence and less than a 10 minute walk from the train station. It is close to excellent restaurants and just a couple of doors away from a wonderful bakery that became our stop each day upon our return to the apartment. My wife and I are in our early 70's so the fact that there was an elevator was an important feature for us. The streets of Florence can be quite noisy both day and night, but the triple-paned door installed on the bedroom window kept the noise out so it never effected our sleep. We would definitely return to this apartment if and when we are back in Florence. I have already recommended the Prisco apartment to our friends and told them that they must check out the many offerings of Italy Perfect if they are planning a visit to Italy. Once you have stayed in an apartment you will never return to a hotel room. The arrangements for our stay were handled without difficulty and the information provided by Italy Perfect prior to our arrival in Florence was of great assistance in getting us off on the right foot. Thanks to all for everything done to make our stay in Florence so perfect and so very memorable.

Perfect location and generously sized

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks at the Prisco and had a wonderful stay. Mikki and Franco were warm hosts who made certain that we had everything we needed. The apartment is very spacious and has a fully equipped kitchen. The location is perfect walking distance to pretty much everywhere you would want to see in the city. Florence is a late night city, especially on the weekends so expect some lively noise from the street below. However, there is very little vehicle traffic. A sound proof glass door has been installed from the small patio off the bedroom and it is 100% effective.

The bathroom has been updated and includes a bidet. The only minor issue is that the shower/tub might be too small for a very tall or large person. This is typical of most European baths.

Lastly, the wireless internet connection was quite good. There is also a printer available.

We highly recommend the Prisco to anyone planning to spend time in Florence who wants gracious, comfortable, and spacious accommodations in a perfectly situated neighborhood. We had a fabulous stay and so will you!

We also highly recommend Italy Perfect. All was as described on their website and our stay was everything we could have wanted.

We wish we could have stayed longer.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights in this beautiful apartment in the heart of Florence. Our hosts were warm and welcoming. We loved the location and were fortunate to have nice weather. We were able to open the large windows and observe the street scene from above. The kitchen was perfect.It gave us a sense of home. We stayed here in the middle of our 18 day stay and appreciated the conveniences of home. My husband loves to cook and we visited the Mercato Centrale daily. The apartment looked exactly like the website photos. The street is noisy but the bedroom's sound proof patio door eliminated all the sound. We would definitely recommend this apartment. We wish we could have stayed longer. It is only a 10 minute walk from the train and close to everything.
