Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.
First, you can’t beat the location of this apartment! 1/2 a block from the Accademia; 2 blocks from the Duomo; 12-15 minutes from the Uffizi and train station!
We were at lunch in front of the Duomo and my son got cold. He came back to the apartment to get his jacket and was back at the table before our coffees came. :)
There are 5 of us, including our 3 teenage boys and there was plenty of room.
Daniela and her son were great! They let us drop our bags when we arrived early in the morning and met us later for check in.
The kitchen had the basics like salt, pepper, oil, tea and coffee. There are plenty of towels, a good shower, and a lovely terrace (which we couldn’t use because it was pouring!!!) There are even a few travel size items should you forget something.
While I know that giving a good recommendation means it will be harder for me to come back in the future, you can’t go wrong staying here! This is the best location for enjoying Florence!!! My only regret is that we couldn’t stay longer! Thanks Daniela and Niccolo!!
Thank you Dana and family for your great review!
Hope to see you soon, ciao:)

We so enjoyed Daniela’s Florence apartment! It was very cute and comfortable. It also was within walking distance to everything. Just as a side note, it is 3 stories up. This was not a problem for us. I highly recommend this beautiful apartment and it’s host!
