The Prisco apartment is located half a block off fashionable Via Tornabuoni near Palazzo Strozzi. It is on the third floor of a building with an elevator. Restaurants, shops abound in this neighborhood. The apartment is extremely spacious, 85 square meters/900 square feet.

The morning sun illuminates the living room and kitchen area. Enjoy the comfort and convenience of an open plan living room and kitchen area.

Throw open the large living room, bedroom & kitchen windows and enjoy the lively scene below. The apartment features many original Italian antiques, yet the living room maintains a casual feel with a modern Italian sofa that opens to become queen size bed.

In the morning zip down to the bakery that is next door to the apartment building and pick out your morning bread and pastries. At night, enjoy a glass of wine and relax a bit before you head out to one of the many excellent neighborhood restaurants.

The kitchen has a gas range with grill, a large oven, lots of cabinet and countertop space, dishwasher, and a large refrigerator with freezer, pots, pans, dishes.

The spacious master bedroom has high ceilings and a romantic draped queen size bed and a chaise longue-style single bed for one. A pretty hand-painted armorie and an antique dresser provide ample clothing storage space. ! We like to advise guests that since this apartment is in the popular historic center, there can be street noise at night from pedestrians (not cars) down below who are strolling by after a meal at one of the many nearby restaurants, however the bedroom window has a very effective sound-dampening panel.

Within the same building are our Strozzi VRBO #156858 and Michaela VRBO #58566 vacation rental apartments.

No check in after 7:00 pm. So sorry, no exceptions.

                                              The most beautiful spacious apartment in the heart of florence

                                              Melissa D.Deerfield, Illinois

                                              We had the most wonderful experience at this spacious apartment that easily slept 2 adults and three kids. The owners treated us like family. The apartment was gorgeous and had all the amenities to cook and wash our clothes for the week. I highly recommend this vrbo.

                                              At Home in Florence

                                              Janelle B.Turks and Caicos Islands

                                              First, the apartment is charming, comfortable and perfectly located. What makes this place our favorite from our trip ( and we stayed in 4 different VRBO’s) was the feeling that you were being hosted in your Italian ancestors home. My husband had the need to see a doctor during our stay. That was scary for us, not knowing where to go and not speaking Italian. Miki walked us to the doctor and translated our needs on our behalf. She is priceless and we couldn’t have appreciated her more.

                                              Charm and character

                                              Marie D.

                                              The apartment has charm and character and is in a great central location. It's also just a few minutes from the train station for venturing further afield. The kitchen is very well equipped if you want to cook and the apartment comes with a comprehensive photo guide showing how everything works. The owners are warm and welcoming and happy to share local information. There is some street noise at night, particularly at weekends, but the double glazed window in the main bedroom blocks it out very effectively. Highly recommended.

                                              Paula A.MOUNT PLEASANT, MI USA

                                              I loved the location. Close to everything... City center, train station, duomo, shopping. My daughter was and still is studying abroad and I wanted something close to her. It was perfect with the beautiful big windows that let the day sun light in. Definitely worth checking it out for your next stay.

                                              Thank you Paula! The Italy Perfect Team

                                              Perfect Italy Location

                                              Prisco was the perfect Italian apartment for us. Very spacious and a fantastic location! Close to everything we needed. The train was a very close and easy walk for day trips. We were given clear instructions for how to use everything in the apartment and everything went perfectly. I read about noise, but we had no problem at all. The bedroom was very dark and quiet. I had never rented an apartment while away, but this was definitely the way to go. I highly recommend Italy Perfect and Prisco!

                                              Wonderful way to experience old Florence

                                              Paul Z.

                                              The apartment is a 17th century gem, right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of old Florence. Mikki and Franco are excellent hosts, and made us very comfortable and welcome. The apartment is spacious, updated and comfortable. We'd definitely like to return.
