Florence vacation, Memoria Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Accommodations and location were excellent. Everything was in walking distance from the apartment. Restaurants and other eating establishments in the area were excellent. Local residents were friendly and helpful.

Isabell was very helpful in setting up tours and helping the ladies in their shopping endeavors. Did a good job explaining everything when we first got there and was available as questions arose during our stay.

Also, Carolina was an excellent Tour Guide while in Rome for a couple of days.

I would recommend this apartment and Italy Perfect to all interested parties!

Fantastic apartment in Florence

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this apartment in Florence in April, 2016 and we had a very enjoyable trip. The apartment is cheerful, bright and very well located overlooking the Pointe Vechio Bridge. It is large with two bedrooms and two baths, a large bright living room, a fantastic balcony, a dining room, a good sized kitchen and good bathroom with tub-shower. It has a washer and dryer. It is 3 minutes to the Uffizi gallery and Piaza Dell Singori, very close to shopping and dining. The apartment is more pretty and larger than the pictures show. We were blessed with good weather during our stay.

To reserve the apartment was made by Patty from Italy perfect and were very easy. She responded quickly usually within 1-2 hours and answered all my questions, and gave clear instructions. Transferring the money was easy and secure.

Our greeter Isabel was great. She met us at the apartment, showed us around, and gave recommendations regarding restaurants.

I recommend getting the Florence Tourist pass. It is 72 Euros but well worth it. You get free admission to all museums and can use public transportation and see Italian villas. It is valid for 72 hours. It can be purchased on line or from the Uffizi gallery.

The food is exceptional, and not very expensive. Try to eat where the locals eat. If you order coffee standing you pay only one Euro, but if you sit it is more expensive. Getting cash back at the airport for tax free items you bought is very easy.

I definitely recommend this apartment and highly recommend Italy perfect. I already made reservation for an apartment in Rome in the fall.

Memoria Memories

  • 5 of 5

Memoria was a prefect apartment for three of us for one week. The location is perfect and the view...cannot be adequately described. The accommodations were clean, comfortable, spacious, adequately appointed (including an operating WIFI, a washer and a dryer) and the balcony is a joy.

Italy Perfect was easy to work with during the rental procedure. Our greeter was on time to meet us and provided a simple, yet full orientation to the apartment and the operations of the various items therein. She was also very responsive helping to take care of a minor issue that occurred during our stay.

For those planning a week or longer stay in Florence, I cannot imagine a better property.

Very comfortable, clean and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

This property is as advertised: quite large and nicely furnished down to the linens and kitchen compliments. Well maintained and clean. Superb location on a busy street right on the Arno, but high quality windows facing the street keep traffic noise to a minimum. Isabel, the "greeter" was very helpful, and when I suffered a foot injury while in Florence helped locate a physician. We would stay there again.

Heaven on the 4th Floor

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Memoria for one week, September 5-12. The weather was PERFECT, this time of year. The apartment is divinely situated on the east bank of the Arno with a balcony that allowed us to sit and enjoy the storybook view. Spacious, clean rooms; comfortable beds, two full baths and room to truly "live" in Florence. We found a wonderful market right over the Ponte Vecchio with all the fresh produce, salumi, prosciutto, cheeses and affordable wines we needed. Our greeter helped us with restaurant reservations and recommended our favorite restaurant of the trip: Quattro Leones (4 Lions). (Order the fig, buratta and prosciutto salad). The cab cost a flat Euro 20 from the airport and taxis were easy to get and the dispatchers speak English. We can't wait to get back. Italy Perfect provided all the background info and instructions that made it seamless. We also used their recommended driver, Stefano, for a day trip and they were wonderful!!!!

Sitting on the balcony we saw amazing sunsets every evening over the river

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Memoria Apartment in Florence in mid-August with my daughter and her college friend. It was in a fantastic location right near the north side of the Ponte Vecchio. The two bedrooms, the dining room, living room and the balcony all overlooked the Arno river and the Ponte Vecchio. Sitting on the balcony we saw amazing sunsets every evening over the river. The location is close to all the major sights and shopping. Crossing over the Ponte Vecchio to the grocery store was only a 3 minute walk. We would eat in at breakfast, then have appetizers and wine on the balcony before going out to dinner.

Most importantly for three traveling women, we felt safe at this location. It was common to see police walking the area around the Ponte Vecchio. In the evenings, there was an organized musical event on the bridge; usually someone singing and playing guitar, and people of all ages would enjoy the show while eating their gelati.

The windows in the apartment were insulated, so street noise was not a problem.

I hope to return to this location with my husband. He and I had stayed at the nearby Portrait Hotel last spring; however, I feel that this apartment is a much better deal.
