This district Cosimo il Vecchio has left its mark. Within the walls of this area once the menagerie of the Medici family was staying. Today it is the student quarter, and during the semester, the Piazza San Marco is always populated by young people who are waiting for the start of their lectures and art classes. The Accademia di Belli Arti founded in 1563 is the oldest art academy in the world, dating back to Michelangelo.
The adjacent neighborhood to the San Lorenzo church is surrounded by a square, and a colorful market life reminds us that Florence was the city of merchants. Many of the offered products are real bargains, especially if you act like the locals with the sellers ...
This cosy appartment towering over the city could not be praised too highly. Every room is well furnished and nicely arranged. The splendid view from the terrace upon San Marco and the north hills, as much as the glorious view from the main bedroom upon the Duomo, are worth walking up the five flights of stairs. The hosts are unquestionably exquisite. We would be definitely glad to come back another time.
We really loved the whole experience. Tiberio answered all of our calls and emails immediately and was very helpful meeting us and showing us the flat. The flat was spacious and well equipped. It's real selling point however are the views - from one side directly over the Duomo and from the other, of the hills beyond Florence. Absolutely delightful and such a central location. Thanks for all of your help Tiberio, we will definitely be back!
First off Tiberio was an excellent host and very easy to work with prior to our arrival as well as when we were there. The apartment is in a great location and close to everything in Florence. It is a quick 10 minute walk to the Duomo and The David is right next door. This place was perfect for a family of four and was our central base while we did day trips to Pisa, Luca, Sienna and Cinque Terre. Tiberio also recommended we visit Fiesole which is a great hilltop town that is a quick 25 minute bus ride from the apartment. The five stories of stairs is not an issue and we felt very safe staying here.
I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay and would stay here again if we get the chance to come back to Florence. Thank you again Tiberio for your hospitality during our stay.
We really enjoyed our stay at Tiberio's apartment. We were very glad for the AC and the washer! The space was big enough for our family of 4. We used the kitchen to make breakfast, and that was quite handy. And the market is just around the corner and open every day! The location was excellent, close to all shops and sights. Though the stairs really make you think about going back for a break midday. It was very hot when we were there, and that made the stairs harder. Everything is in good order, and Tiberio explained everything when we arrived. A couple of minor minor things....The master bed is a bit squeaky. Just getting out of the bed makes a loud noise, so perhaps that should be looked at. Also the cabinet in the corner of the master room wobbles a bit. And the shower could use an extra scrub. Again, those are quite minor. Overall our stay was wonderful and I would stay at the apartment again if we get to return to Florence. Such a lovely city.
I was booking another trip through VRBO and realized we never wrote a review for this wonderful apartment! It's a few months late, but the apartment and Tiberio and his wife deserve a great review. It was clean and comfortable, with amazing views--all just as pictured and described. We posted a Facebook picture of me eating gelato on the terrace and everyone said the background looked like a painting. It was perfect for morning coffee, watching the fog lift over the hills after a rain, and for eating gelato after a long day of seeing the sights. Our nightlight was the lighted duomo and tower. As for the five flights--my husband and I were almost 70, and we had no problem. We had to stop for a rest about half way up, but honestly, we were glad for the exercise! Tiberio and his wife were friendly and made sure all our questions were answered.
The apartment was just perfect during our stay in Florence this past March. Tiberio was absolutely gracious host and came to meet us at near midnight after nightmare day of traveling from the states. We were delighted of the fantastic view of the Duomo from our Bedroom window. We were visiting our daughter at nearby Gonzaga in Florence and the school and Pensionne both were just a few blocks away. The apartment was immaculate and had all the amenities needed for our week long stay in Florence. It was so nice to spread out in the apartment after a long day trip and allowed us to have our daughter stay with us in the extra bedroom. Sitting out on the patio over looking the square and the view of the city and surrounding hills allowed us to unwind after exploring the city.The apartment is located in Piazza de San Marco which is nice hub to catch a taxi or bus to any location in the city. Finding out the Academia Galleria where Michelangelo's David and other great art and sculptures are just block away down the side street from the apartment was awesome surprise. Just below the apartment there is very nice restaurant called "Academia" and the pastry and gelato place on the corner of Via Cavour is a gem. I would definitely rent the apartment from Tiberio again when we return to Florence.
Florence is one of the most beautiful cities of this world and offers an immeasurable wealth of art and culture treasures. The apartment is located in the historical part of Florence, directly at 'Piazza San Marco', from where you have the possibility, 'to dive in' the old part of Florence and discover the cultural objects of interest and secret corners of this fascinating city.
