What a view!!

  • 5 of 5

What a view!! This spacious, bright & sunny apartment is literally on the Arno, right next to the Ponte Vecchio, you could not ask for a more perfect location! Enjoy your morning coffee sitting on the terrace watching the day bustle to a start and in the evening, sip your wine while watching the sunset over the Arno.

The apartment is very clean and comfortable, with plenty of closet space, large well equipped kitchen and 2 bathrooms (great water pressure), one of which is quite large. Noise while sleeping was not an issue as they have very good windows and, when closed, block most of the street sounds. There is a convenient, very well stocked grocery store an easy 5 minute walk just on the other side of the bridge, also a pharmacy right around the corner….really everything you need is in very easy (flat) walking distance with all the major sites just minutes away. A truly fantastic location.

The living room sofas and chairs are very comfortable and there are large sliding glass doors from the living room onto the terrace that give the dining and living rooms tons of light and, of course, views. While it was sunny on my visit, I imagine the apartment would be airy even on rainy days.

I’ve stayed in a number of Italy Perfect apartments over the years, and this one is assuredly up to their standards….I would move in long term if I could!

Lisa and Pat, thank you for your professionalism and attention to detail…this apartment is wonderful, I’ll never forget those views!

The views over the Ponte Vecchio into the Tuscan hillside were breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

In the heart of it all...As this was my first trip to Italy and Florence, I am grateful for the level of service, and quality of lodging Italy Perfect offered. The destination/location advice for our needs was spot on, and reservation process very personable and efficient. Our taxi dropped us off at Memoria, from the train station, so we could promptly meet our greeter, and receive a timely, informative, and thorough orientation to the flat, and the area.

The first thing you realize about Memoria, is the central location. Our door is at the base of one side of the Ponte Vecchio! So surreal. We walked to all the major museums and sites from our front door taking literally just minutes to Uffizi, Palazzo Pitti, Accademia Gallery, Cathedral of Santa Maria Fiore, and wonderful outdoor markets, as well as a plethora of boutiques and restaurants of all price points.

When inside, the views over the Ponte Vecchio into the Tuscan hillside were breathtaking, virtually any time day or night. Loved that balcony. The flat is nicer than it appears in the photos. It includes comfy furniture, good wifi, good water pressure, washer & dryer (!), ample closet space and a well-appointed kitchen (used primarily for breakfasts) and very clean. Loved the formal dining room for entertaining a small group for dinner. Hope to return next year.

Incredible View and Great Service

  • 5 of 5

We were met by Isabel promptly and given a full tour of the apartment. It's a beautiful space and the huge sliding doors to the balcony give you the perfect view of the bridge and river. It's so easy to walk to everything from this location. She was so helpful and offered to assist us with any questions we had. She gave us restaurant recommendations that were off the beaten path and even scheduled our taxi rides for departure. We have used VRBO many times but never had the attention we had on this trip. We would highly recommend this apartment and especially Isabel.

ItalyPerfect made our trip to Italy just perfect

  • 5 of 5

Memoria was a comfortable apartment in an absolutely ideal location. We can't imagine staying in any other place when we go back to Florence! And our greeter, Isabel, was friendly, professional and efficient. She not only met us as scheduled, having purchased some initial groceries for us, but she also helped us out with a couple of other requests during our stay. She is a great resource for you. Our only suggestion for Memoria is that you furnish it with softer sheets and linens, and clear out some of the existing linens.

We can hardly wait to go back for another stay! Meanwhile we have already told friends about ItalyPerfect and how well they worked with Claudia, our travel agent.
