Outstanding Apartment in Ravenna

  • 5 of 5

Massimo's apartment is in a palazzo with a wonderful entrance courtyard. The apartment is large, has new furniture (not "hand-me-downs" found in many rentals), and even has two desks. The kitchen is well supplied and has oil, vinegar, etc. It is centrally located within walking distance of all the major monuments and shopping. It is among the best of many apartments we have stayed in. Massimo is an excellent host with a good command of English, helping us find a garage and even carrying our luggage. Many streets are one way, and the GPS doesn't help because they are pedestrianized. If driving, I suggest using a paper map and approaching on via Roma, then via Ghiselli. Jerry Winkenbach

Excellent location and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

we had a very comfortable stay here. The flat is really well proportioned and stylish and near to everything that you would want to see and do if you are visiting Ravenna. Our host Massimo was very welcoming and extremely helpful with lots of advice about what to see and do locally with some good restaurant recommendations (all within easy walking distance). We were suitably impressed by Massimo picking us up at the station and getting up early to take us back.

Great in all respects

  • 5 of 5

The reviews are real. This is the place where you must stay in Ravenna. Spacious, well equipped and well laid out. Lots of marble and high ceilings. Deluxe. Beautiful. A Palazzo! Close to everything. We were met by Massimo who is a gentleman and whose English is flawless, and who is super friendly and helpful. He even hooked us up with resident parking for our car- steps from the apartment. A bottle of local vino bianco as a welcome gift was icing on the cake- and did not happen anywhere else. I liked the coffee maker in the apartment so much I bought one for home before I left Ravenna. Clearly the best in terms of condition and management of 5 apartments that we rented on our trip- and by far. BTW Ravenna itself is wonderful and we wish we would have planned a longer visit. Lots to do and see, nice restaurants that provide high quality local dishes at prices that reminded us of the days of the Lire.

Exceptional stay

  • 5 of 5

We rent several tourist apartments on each of at least 2 European trips per year, and our experience is to expect "tourist" apartments That means apartments compromised to meet exaggerated standards: small 2nd bedroom, tiny shower stalls, reduced floor and counter space, etc.

Not here! In Massimo's apartment there is no compromise! The apartment, carved out of an old pallazzo, feels like the owner's own quarters. The ceilings are very high. The floor is gorgeous stone. Both bedrooms are full size, with full king beds. Lots of closet and counter space to put your stuff. A very airy and spacious feel. The windows face courtyards, so the only noise to wake us was the songbirds in the big tree. Everything was in good working order and clean. The location is central: 10 minutes of walking brings you to 90% of everything to see.

One reviewer's advice was to look no further. We agree fully! You can't do better then this.

great find!

  • 5 of 5

Massimo was fantastic; picked us up and dropped us off at the train station and was helpful in any way we asked. The apartment was immaculate and well appointed. The location is the best - right in the heart of what Ravenna has to offer - walking distance to the museums and restaurants.
