About Fabrizio

I am passionate about music from the 1960s and 70s, and play in a band when time permits. I love animals, sports, good cinema, travel, and I love the arts. I love meeting new people, and I am passionate about my Florence and Tuscany.

Fabrizio purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Fabrizio chose Historic Center

This is the original centre of Renaissance Florence. Just steps from

the appartment is the Medici-Riccardi Palace, home of the powerful

Medici family, who ruled Florence, and brought it to the world stage during the renaissance. This area is a mix of small craftsmens' workshops and monumental florentine grandeur, and this mix makes it a very special and unusual part of my city. I love the idea that the Medici, and artists like Michelangelo once walked these streets.

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is right in the centre of the historical centre, with easy access to all of Florence's monuments, galleries and amenities, yet it offers pretty views, plenty of light, and it is on a quiet street. This is an extraordinary combination for historical Florence. Its colours and proportions make it welcoming, warm and restful, so it's perfect after a day on your feet.

Wonderful Visit to Florence

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in this lovely apartment in Florence. It is centrally located in a pedestrian area, within easy walking distance of all the marvelous historic sights of Florence. It is also near the train and coach station and the central market. At the market there is a large variety of produce for sale, as well as prepared meals from delicatessen style counters. There are also many restaurants in the area. The apartment is spacious with comfortable furnishings and interesting decor. The landlord was always available if we had questions or needed help. We would recommend this apartment for a quiet and comfortable stay in Florence.

Comfortable apartment in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was as described - comfortable, clean and well equipped that met all of our needs. We especially appreciated having the kitchen to prepare our meals. The location was very central in Historic Florence allowing us to walk to all the main historical sites. There are excellent restaurants nearby as well as the Central Market for fresh fruit, vegetables, meats and baked goods.
Fabrizio was very friendly, accommodating and took care of all our requests quickly and professionally. We enjoyed our two months in Florence as we felt like we were living a Florentine life. We would recommend renting this apartment or any other that Fabrizio has available. We are looking forward to renting this apartment in the near future.

A beautifully appointed apartment in a very quiet street in the middle of historical Florence. Just a stone's throw from the Medici Chapel, the Basilica of San Lorenzo, Florence Duomo and Michelangelo's David, This is the original centre of Renaissance Florence. Just steps from the appartment is the Medici-Riccardi Palace, home of the powerful Medici family, who ruled Florence, and brought it to the world stage during the renaissance. This area is a mix of small craftsmens'

workshops and monumental florentine grandeur, and this mix makes it a very special and unusual part of my city. Full of great restaurants, trattorie and osterie, this area also offers some of the city's best places to eat, as well as easy on-foot access to the city's historical centre and its many museums, galleries and monuments.

For trips further afield, I can offer you private tours to Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa, Lucca and the stunning Cinque Terre, or if you prefer a shopping trip, I can take you to the renowned Prada factory outlet, The Mall (Armani, Gucci, Ferragamo, Bottega Veneta and many others), or to the Barberino outlet to the north of the city, all for special daily or half-day rates. We are also in wine heaven here, with plenty of opportunities to discover some of the best red wines available, with wine tasting tours that take in some of the most beautiful vinyards in the Chianti, Montepulciano and Montalcino areas.
