About Dario

Dario: 32 years old. I love Florence and this charming House where I was born and where my guests can have beautiful holidays.

I live very close to the apartments and I am at your disposal for any informations and any needs.

Why Dario chose Metropolitan City of Florence

Very close to Florence's historic centre in an elegant Florentine neighborhood. It's an ideal location for visiting CHIANTI, and all the famous Tuscan cities.

What makes this apartment unique

A beautiful 1930's buildings with large windows and original stained glass panes.We have a antique and beautiful garden where you can relax after visiting the city.

Possibility to park your car into our private driveway that can accomodate 2/3 cars.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The apartment is amazing! It is beautiful with fun modern finishes. I think the combo oven / microwave might be the best or maybe the shower with body jets or the niche for kids beds? The gardens are lovely and you can sit out on the front porch or in the back garden. Really the best part was the lovely Dario and his mother Rosario. They made sure we were comfortable, had maps and a lovely bottle of Chianti. Rosario even walked us around the neighborhood to get a feel for where the shops, bus stop, and good restaurants were. Since we were hungry she took us to a great local place and ordered lunch for all of us. We were so very fortunate she had the time to spend. The apartment is outside of the center of Florence so you are living with the actual Florentine rather than tourists. It was an easy ride into town on bus 23 and not too far if you do not mind a 2 kilometer walk.

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Florence for 10 days in March. We travel a lot and like to stay in nice, reasonably priced accomodations. We were fortunate to find this beautiful apartment which was recently renovated with a large loft, new modern bathrooms and a new kitchen with all new appliances. The apartment was spotless and has the perfect mix of modern convenience and old world charm. The listing was 100% accurate and the location was convenient to major attractions. The owners Dario and Rosaria, were always available. They welcomed us like family and made sure we had everything we needed. Upon arrival, there was a welcome bottle of wine and some fresh Italian baked goods waiting for us. Located just outside the historical area in a quiet neighborhood. Great location if you want to experience staying with the locals. We loved walking to the local cafes, restaurants and shops. Rosaria even gave us a tour of the neighborhood to point out the best restaurants and shops. The apartment also has a beautiful garden and secured parking. We highly recommend this property. The owners really care about your stay and even asked us if we had any suggestions to improve the apartment (It's hard to improve perfection). We are returning to Florence in May and would have stayed here again, but unfortunately, it was booked.

Great family space

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 spent a week in Il Ferruccio from Christmas to New Year's Day. The apartment is beautiful and located in what we felt was a very safe neighborhood. Dario and Irene met us at the apt upon our arrival and were so gracious to explain everything about the apartment. They have guidebooks and maps of the city for your use.

The apartment was quite cool that evening for our Florida blood, but I e-mailed Dario and he responded very quickly to reset the thermostat. The living areas are spacious and there are plenty of bathrooms for a large family. The kitchen was very well stocked and had a very nice sized refrigerator.

The walk to the city center was about 20 minutes and is along the Arno River. It is just beautiful. We only used a taxi to get to and from the airport and we used the bus transportation several times. There are a lot of convenient stops so it is a great alternative to walking if you need it, but at peak hours, the bus can be crowded! We did feel the bus system was a little complicated, so get good directions about which bus to take for your desired destination.

Christmas is a beautiful time to spend in Florence. Decorations are gorgeous in the city and Dario and Irene had even put up a Christmas tree for us! If you are there over New Year's, the fireworks are EVERYwhere and can be quite loud from the bedroom, but hey, you are in a beautiful city with beautiful people so it's worth the lack of sleep!!!

If you have a very early flight, I would suggest letting Dario arrange transportation to the airport. It was extremely difficult getting through to the taxi company on New Year's morning!!

We would absolutely recommend renting from Dario and Irene and spending your holiday in one of their apartments. We hope to go back one day and will definitely want to stay the again!

Absolutely enchanting!

  • 4 of 5

Ponte Vecchio is absolutely amazing. We can't say enough good things about the property and the hosts Dario and Irene. They were lovely and so cordial as they welcomed us to their property. The house and furnishings all look just as the photos portray and actually the entire property as a whole is even more beautiful than in the photos. We loved staying there. The neighborhood was clean, easy to navigate and convenient to the bus in town each day. The kitchen was very easy to cook meals in and had plenty of dishes, utensils and the things you need like oils, sugar, coffee etc. The gardens out back were truly amazing, adorned with more white calla lilies than you could count. We sat in the back every evening with proseco and cheeses and watched the sun go down within our little enclave. The house has 3 bdrms and is large enough for a family or group of friends to enjoy. Lots of space in the kitchen, formal dining and living rooms and a chess board is set up and waiting for players! The home's furnishings and decorations were the best I've ever seen in a rental property. Their taste is impeccable and it showed in the details of every room.

We had only two complaints and they were certainly minor. We could only get one English language channel to play on the TV, even though they have subscribed to an international program. At one point we got lots of American programs all dubbed in Italian and then they somehow changed over to German. But we did find one that worked and when we wanted something late at night, it was ok. The other thing is that the bathroom in the master bedroom ensuite is lovely but the lighting is very poor. I could not put on makeup and had to move to the guest bath for that each morning.

But these are not really even complaints. We had such a lovely time at the apartment that we are truly looking forward to our next visit. Wishing you a lovely time as well.

Great stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5

The property is very well located (only 30min walk to the Duomo); the hosts (Dario and Irene) are always very helpful and contactable and they always had great tips for good food and attractions (especially the Corridorio Vasariono was an unforgettable experience).

Beautiful Florence Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Dario apartment was an excellent accommodation for our travel party. The apartment was spacious and the balcony overlooking the garden, a perfect retreat. Dario and Irene were most gracious hosts, helping us settle into the apartment and arranging a driver for us to explore Tuscany. I would recommend this apartment to anyone, and given an opportunity to return to Florence, I would hope to rent it again myself.

Charming.

  • 4 of 5

A lovely apartment with secure off street parking with a pretty garden outlook. Irene meet us at the apartment even though we were a little late she was still waiting! A couple of complaints are the hot water system as it gets turned on half an hour before you need it & after a hot day walking Florence a shower immediately would have been nice. It also trips the power if you boil the jug at the same time. It would be nice having aircon in the living area too but in the bedrooms was wonderful. We were two couples & the other couple found the single beds to be more a child's size. Overall though a convenient apartment with everything we needed & a good thirty minutes walk to the old area of Florence.
