About Marusca

HOSPITALITY & SERENDIPITY

Marusca purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Marusca chose Historic Center

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Convenient position, clean, comfortable, secure

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in one of these two suites and we would highly recommend it. We are mature experienced travellers and would not consider staying elsewhere on a return to Firenze.

Contact, meeting and checking out were reliable, efficient and pleasant.

The apartment was clean, well-ordered and well equipped.

It is very centrally located which was most convenient for regular returns to the apartment.

Air conditioning was reliable and most beneficial in the hot weather.

The views from both apartments are spectacular.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

Perfect Florence experience

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nites in the apt at the end of May. The location is perfect, with easy walking access to the tourist locations as well as south on the bridge to a slightly quieter area and great restaurants. The apartment had everything we needed, was quiet despite it's central location, and Marusca was welcoming and helpful with suggestions for our stay.

Lovely apartment, but communication lacking

  • 4 of 5

This is a well-equipped apartment right beside the Ponte Vecchio. It is perfect for exploring Florence. We enjoyed our stay here and discovering the jewels of Florence.

However, communication at times was lacking with one message taking 6 days for a response. When we checked in, we made arrangements to check-out at a given time. The host said she would meet us in the apartment then. We waited for 10 minutes and then had to leave to catch a train for our onward journey.
