Fantastic appartment just a few steps to the city and main attractions!!!

  • 5 of 5

Mario’s appartement is perfect for a few days in the city. It’s calm and very well furnished. We stayed there 3 days early October. Mario is a perfect host!! and he gently picked up us at the airport upon our arrival. The appartement is also near the train station Santa Maria Novella and a walk distance to main attractions. We definitely enjoyed our stay!!

Perfectly situated

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights/5days and the property was fantastic, ideally situated and equipped for our needs. Marco was a dream to deal with, always answered our queries, before and after our arrival, he also gave us suggestions for additional places to visit. The apartment itself is immaculate and exceptionally clean. The closeness to the tram, bus and train station is advantageous, we walked most of the time to the centre which took about 25 mins at a fairly leisurely pace but the walk does take you by the river so some good view points. We ate locally a couple of times and there is such a choice. We bought essentials from the local supermarket which is about 5 minutes walk and open until midnight.

I would without hesitation recommend this property, we have left with very fond memories of Florence and a big thank you to Marco for his assistance.

comfortable and very convenient place to stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5

Marco is a great host and the flat itself is very comfortable and absolutely perfect in terms of its convenient walkable location near everything you want to see. We were very grateful that after a very long trip from New York, he offered to pick us up at the Florence airport. We loved our 4 day visit in Florence and we adored having this flat as our "headquarters."

Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a good location if you don't mind walking. The apartment is located on the outskirts of the areas you are most likely to visit. It's very clean, quiet and convenient with markets and restaurants nearby. We were on foot the entire time and were able to see all the sites that our limited schedule allowed. Marco was extremely friendly and helpful. He met us at the tram stop and it was a very short distance to the apartment. We would definitely stay there again.

Great apartment with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was absolutely perfect! We stayed for a couple nights and were so excited to see all the amenities when we showed up - wifi (which consistently worked!), kitchen, washer (much needed!) and air conditioning! The apartment was very clean and the owner was extremely kind and professional. Very close to the City Center but far enough where it was quiet. Definitely keeping it on the list for our next trip back to Florence.

The district where the apartment is located is very animated: on the street you can buy fresh bread from the bakery, but also enjoy excellent baked lasagna to rotisserie, or if you prefer, there are Chinese restaurant, pizzeria, ice cream shop.... and then ... there is Florence! Peacefully, on foot, you can quickly reach all the most beautiful places of this wonderful city: Piazza Santa Maria Novella, Piazza del Duomo, the Uffizi Gallery, Ponte Vecchio are just some of the beauties of this city. Also from here you can easily reach, with day excursions, and other equally beautiful places nearby such as Pisa, Lucca, Bologna, San Gimignano .... In short, the ideal place for an unforgettable holiday!
