About Elisabetta

Now retired, I love to discover and love my adopted city, Florence, with its beauties, its wealth, its extraordinary landscapes and works of art. I also love from time to time to discover the world that still makes then more plaisible return to the cradle of our culture and our tradition

Elisabetta purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Elisabetta chose Santa Maria Novella

Florence, unlike Rome , which is the city of my birth, it's a city of human scale, and more, all you are surrounded by the taste, intelligence and simplicity of architecture and works of art of Umanisme and Renaissance. This is why I chose Florence as adopted city and chose this apartment because here 'mind feels good.'

What makes this apartment unique

Light, air, open spaces and high ceilings are the elements that made ??me love this apartment since my first visit. Then, the atmosphere of a small village that we breathe in the streets around where vehicular traffic is greatly reduced,convinced me that this apartment would have been my refuge in Florence. So I restored and furnished it with great passion and attention to details to create not a flat 'for rent' but a place where to live in comfort and tranquility in short, a place where one is eager to come back after a tiring day of sightseeing and where you can feel as well as at home. For this purpose, I provide my guests some books (in Italian, French, English, Spanish), tea and herbal tea, a radio where the listen to good classical music (Rete Toscana Classica FM93.300 MHz) ... and a comfortable sofa!

Finding the Property

  • 5 of 5

Elisabetta's instructions start on Nazione. To find that street from the train station, step outside and look across the street and to your right to find a McDonalds (not the one in the train station or next to the train station). Cross the street and walk along McDonalds and stay on the sidewalk as it wraps around the end of the building. Continue on this sidewalk about 100 yards/meters. It will make a small jog to the right. Follow it and now you'll notice that the street is called Nazione and you can continue with Elisabetta's instructions.

Thank you, Elisabetta, for your good communication and making this available to travelers.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

Elisabetta and Maurizio were great to communicate with. Property is not far from S.M. Novella train station for those travelling by train. Store is very close by and plenty of restaurants nearby too. If you are seeing Ponte Vecchio it is a bit of a distance but very walkable. Del Duomo and museums are closer. It is a large property and the kitchen and bath are typical Europe and Italy sizes.

A Great Apartment in Florence

  • 5 of 5

After a long flight, it certainly was great to enter the apartment which had a warm, welcoming feel to it. The pictures are exactly what you will find in the apartment. The location is in a quiet historic part of the city. It is within walking distance to the train station and the major historic museums. An added perk is that the grocery store is only a block away. Your host, Elisabetta, is a warm, caring person who is there to help you if you need help or advice. We thoroughly enjoyed our home away from home during our 12 day stay in Florence.

Better than anticipated!

  • 5 of 5

I was extremely pleased with our stay. I had never traveled to Europe before and was very nervous about the whole trip. I was visiting my daughter who was studying abroad for the semester and she stayed with me during the visit. The apartment was very clean and spacious for the two of us. Elisabetta was there to greet us and she was very sweet and helpful. We happened to arrive on a chilly night and after several hours the heat didn't appear to work so I emailed Elisabetta and she was so prompt in replying. She came back immediately and I realized I didn't have the heat set correctly. It worked right away after Elisabetta and Maurizio left. I would definitely recommend this home away from home. My daughter was sad to leave this apartment and to return to her own apartment in Florence. She wanted to stay. Thank you Elisabetta for your wonderful apartment!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

The apartment at 120 via Zenobi Florence was old world beautiful with up to date appliances such as full size refrigerator,TV, microwave oven, heat and air conditioning. It was a short walk to Duomo, the covered market, many shops and restaurants. Elizabetta, the owner, was very helpful and responded quickly to our questions. The wifi was fast and I was able to use it on a daily basis with no additional fee. We had a wonderful two week experience in Florence thanks to Elizabetta and her charming apartment.

The apartment is in Via San Zanobi, one of the most ancient street in Florence, running parallel to the old Roman'cardo maximo' (now Via San Gallo). Former Via Mozza, in this street Michelangelo Buonarroti had his workshop, and there he did the magnificent 'Slaves'(now in the Academy Galleries).

Via San Zanobi lays in the San Giovanni neighborough, the heart of Florence in Medici times. It heads straight to the famous San Lorenzo Central Market.

The20church of San Lorenzo, with its Medici family's tumbs sculpted by Michelangelo,Medici Riccardi Palace, The San Marco Monastery ( Fra Beato Angelico masterpieces), Academy Galleries, SS: Annunziata Square (Ospedale degli Innocenti): all this is only 500-600 meters from the apartment. A short distance from the apartment, the Fortezza da Basso. The neighbourhood is well served by tipical shops, restaurants, supermarkets (one of this, open 7/7 days, lays 20 meters from the apartment) and the characteristic San Lorenzo Central Market.
