HOSPITALITY & SERENDIPITY
Marusca purchased this Apartment in 1995
Why Marusca chose San Giovanni
The apartment is on the Bridge Ponte Vecchio in the middle of the tourist area, but it is on 5th floor and it is very quite night and day.
What makes this Apartment unique
You can enjoy one of the most beautiful monument of the world quietly standing in front of the window and the best sunsets.
Local Services & Businesses
Well maintained, centrally located yet quiet property
This apartment is in an ideal location for an active tourist, allowing you to interrupt your exploring for a quick siesta if necessary. On the fifth floor it helps you to maintain your fitness and provides a lovely view of the city. It does have an elevator. There is a separate bedroom for privacy and a compact kitchen to allow for as much food prep as you like. Marusca was most helpful with orientation to the area as well as attending quickly to any questions or concerns we had. The property is very sound proof, no street noise.
Location! Location! Location! This cute apartment is located steps away from the Ponte Vecchio and next to the Uffizi Museum. It's an easy walk to all the sites: the Duomo, the leather market, the Accademia Gallery. You simply can't beat the location which is why we recommend staying here. The apartment is suitable for a couple without children. It is small and a little dark but it has all the necessities. The tiny kitchen wasn't conducive to doing a lot of cooking so we ate out the entire time we were there. The picture in VRBO with the yellow arches is the view from the small kitchen window. The place was clean and comfortable, including the bed. The TV was very small, more like a small computer monitor, but it did the job. The apartment is several floors up, and the elevator is very small - we couldn't fit both of us plus our 2 suitcases in there at the same time, so one of us had to walk the stairs when we arrived and left. We would definitely stay here again because it was comfortable, affordable and the location was perfect!
Location, location, location!!
You couldn't have a better location for your stay in Florence. View of the Ponte Vecchio (just as shown) from your window. Comfortable, but not luxurious. Don't count on the internet as it stopped functioning and never worked for more than half our stay. Not like staying at a hotel- minimal support system. All the basics for an apartment stay in a beautiful city. The star rating is definitely from the incredible location.
This apartment was perfect for a short break in Florence. Overlooking the Ponte Vecchio made it the ideal location to visit all the main tourist attractions.
Apartment was immaculate and had everything we needed for our 2 night stay.
Marusca gave us some fabulous recommendations for places to eat and we weren't disappointed.
We would definitely recommend a stay here.
Very enjoyable experience
Location is great! Hostess was very accommodating.
Great location right next to the Ponte Vecchio
The apartment is very centrally located in Florence. The managers were very welcoming and easy to talk to. They recommended a parking garage a short distance away and pointed out several places to eat and the location of the grocery store across the river. The room was lean and comfortable. Definitely would stay there again.
