About Marusca


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 4th floor and it 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

They were a lovely guest, the apartment has been left in perfect condition.

Thank you very much to stay in my apartment.

Best regards

Alberto and Marusca

Outstanding location and very comfortable accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We definitely enjoyed our stay. Easy walking distance to every place we wanted to visit made it very convenient. It was also helpful to easily catch up on our laundry while on our extended holiday. Marusca was wonderfully helpful in getting us off on the right foot with a full explanation of the apartment operations and recommendations for places to eat.

Fantastic Location and Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

First, Marusca is terrific! In addition to helping us with taxis, electric adaptors, and storing luggage, she provided many great suggestions for views, stores, restaurants, and sites. Florence is a walkable city but since the apartment was so convenient, we found ourselves returning several times during the day to eat, rest a bit, or even change outfits after being caught in a couple downpours! The kitchen is fully functional-we particularly enjoyed the large wine glasses! The bedroom/bed is very comfortable while the living room sofa is fine for sleeping although not as private. Bathroom is large and we gratefully used the washing machine, clothes rack, and iron. Elevator came in real handy too...we usually walked downstairs but after 20,000 steps exploring sites, the elevator up was appreciated! Perhaps the best part of the apartment is the view looking out to the Ponte Vecchio...the window blocks out all street noises but we preferred to hear the sounds of the city, especially as it "woke up" in the morning. We know we will return to Florence and I can't imagine staying anywhere else! p.s. be sure to get a sandwich from nearby of our favorites in Italy.

Met all expectations

  • 5 of 5

Arrived and was met punctually by the owner. Showed us the property and explained everything. Gave us some good tips on where to eat, drink well, most of which we tried and throughly enjoyed.

Property was in a great location and whilst on top of everything was a very tranquil oasis when you needed rest. Everything was in working order and for the 2 of us the space was ideal.

We are looking forward to returning and would come back to this apartment again.

This was one of the best rentals from start to finish. Great communication and friendly service attitude with every interaction. The apartment is situated right in the heart of Florence along the Arno river with a view of the Ponte Vecchio.....who could ask for more! I would definitely stay here again!

FABULOUS apartment, FABULOUS location!

  • 5 of 5

Jackpot! So many features of this apartment are beyond great...where to begin? The arrival: Marusca met me right away, as scheduled, to give me access to the apartment. She was friendly and charming, and went beyond going over the basics to give a few recommendations and helpful tips for my stay. Safety/security: As a solo female traveler, I felt completely safe at the apartment. There are only 2 units on the floor where I resided, and the outside access is a huge, heavy wooden door that no one without a key will get past. Although probably unnecessary given the overall security of the apartment, there is a small safe inside where I stowed my passport and wallet while out running. Amenities: Marusca has thought of everything! There is a small, full-service kitchen, with all of the cooking utensils and dining amenities that one could desire. I cooked there 5 nights, which saved a bit of money and allowed me to eat healthily. One huge selling point for me was the washing machine; I work out regularly, and being able to do laundry during my 10-day stay saved quite a bit of space in my luggage from otherwise having to pack a lot of workout clothes. There is a drying rack for drying your clothes (this is the Italian way). The bed is comfortable, and although I did not use it, there's also a pull-out sofa bed. There's plenty of space for 2 people, although 4 could probably be fine, depending on personal space needs. Cleanliness: I'm a bit of a "neat freak," so this is a biggie for me. The apartment was spotless, and I was totally comfortable! Location: PERFECT. The apartment is located on the street with the arches right next to the Ponte Vecchio ("Lungarno..."), so everything is within reach (right in the city center). The large park (Parco delle Cascine) is also not far away, for those who like to bike/run/walk, etc. In sum, the apartment was exceptional, and I would definitely like to stay here again on my next trip to Florence.
