Great property

  • 5 of 5

Very clean property in a very central place . Lots of stairs so might not suit older people. I would definitely go back.

Perfect everything!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled throughout Europe for a month celebrating our 35th Wedding Anniversary and were absolutely thrilled to stay at this location. The apartment is in an excellent location and was above and beyond our expectations. Very clean..Breathtaking views from every window..Would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for the perfect experience in Italy..

Molte grazie Rosalba for the opportunity to stay at your beautiful home and for leaving the autographed cookbook..It is displayed in my kitchen and is a daily reminder of our days walking through the streets of beautiful Florence.. Of all the places we stayed along our travels yours was one of our favorites. Just like I dreamed living in Italy would be..Grazie again and again for making our Anniversary trip very special..We will be back for sure!!

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a base while we stayed in Italy and not only was Florence perfect, but the apartment was exactly what we were looking for. The pictures and descriptions are very accurate (thankfully) and Rosalba was great - not intrusive but very responsive. The location of the apartment was ideal for sightseeing as well as comfortable. The only suggestion I would make is to perhaps get a foam topper for the bed - it was very hard. Other than that, we were delighted with Apartment Casa Nicola!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I travelled with our 18-month-old daughter. We enjoyed the apartment.

The main light went out in the kitchen during our stay and Rosalba had a new bulb for us very quickly.

The apartment was a very brief walk to the main museums and we found we loved the restaurants in the adjacent square.

We wouldn't hesitate to stay again!
