About Elisabetta

Now retired, I love to discover and love my adopted city, Florence, with its beauties, its wealth, its extraordinary landscapes and works of art. I also love from time to time to discover the world that still makes then more plaisible return to the cradle of our culture and our tradition

Elisabetta purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Elisabetta chose Florence

Florence, unlike Rome , which is the city of my birth, it's a city of human scale, and more, all you are surrounded by the taste, intelligence and simplicity of architecture and works of art of Umanisme and Renaissance. This is why I chose Florence as adopted city and chose this apartment because here 'mind feels good.'

What makes this apartment unique

Light, air, open spaces and high ceilings are the elements that made ??me love this apartment since my first visit. Then, the atmosphere of a small village that we breathe in the streets around where vehicular traffic is greatly reduced,convinced me that this apartment would have been my refuge in Florence. So I restored and furnished it with great passion and attention to details to create not a flat 'for rent' but a place where to live in comfort and tranquility in short, a place where one is eager to come back after a tiring day of sightseeing and where you can feel as well as at home. For this purpose, I provide my guests some books (in Italian, French, English, Spanish), tea and herbal tea, a radio where the listen to good classical music (Rete Toscana Classica FM93.300 MHz) ... and a comfortable sofa!

Very spacious and close to all Florence has to offer

  • 4 of 5

Booking was easy. Owner, Elisabetta, got back to me immediately. Centrally located, apartment is large and nicely decorated. Plenty of seating for company. I used the main bedroom only, however, the living room sleeps an additional three. I appreciated the kitchenette, retro refrigerator and the washing machine. Plenty of restaurants and shopping close by. My host was very accommodating to my every request. Would definitely recommend this apartment for short or, like mine, a long stay.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you have had a good stay in my apartment. As for the absence of elevator, I'm sorry you didn't read carefully the description in the listing where it is clearly marked that the apartment is at the first floor without elevator and that anyway there are only 20 easy steeps to reach it. In Florence city center buildings is very hard to build elevators! Hoping anyway that this has not disturbed your holiday!

Bright, roomy apartment in convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

Elisabettas apartment was roomy and had several windows for sunshine and breezes. The kitchen was well equipped and the fridge was large enough for plenty of groceries. There are about 20 stairs up to the apartment. A grocery store is located very close by. You can walk to the train or bus station in approximately 10-15 minutes. Several attractions are within a 20 minute walk.

Perfect place to stay in Florence!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Elisabetta's. She greeted us when we arrived and made us feel right at home. She had lots of maps and suggestions to help us make the most of our stay in Florence. We loved the location - just a few minute walk from the central market. Apartment was very clean, lots of windows and a great little kitchen for cooking meals. Thanks again for a great stay!

Great Apartment in Quiet Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this apartment for 5 nights. It's large, comfortable and very quiet. It's location is great, as it's a quick walk to the Mercato Centrale, which is a must see in Florence. There is also a grocery store right on the corner. Elisabetta was there to great me and available to answer all of my questions. She's warm and very accommodating. There was everything I could have needed in the apartment, even a large fridge, which is rare for Italy. I highly recommend staying at this apartment.

The apartment is in Via San Zanobi, one of the most ancient street in Florence, running parallel to the old Roman'cardo maximo' (now Via San Gallo). Former Via Mozza, in this street Michelangelo Buonarroti had his workshop, and there he did the magnificent 'Slaves'(now in the Academy Galleries).

Via San Zanobi lays in the San Giovanni neighborough, the heart of Florence in Medici times. It heads straight to the famous San Lorenzo Central Market.

The20church of San Lorenzo, with its Medici family's tumbs sculpted by Michelangelo,Medici Riccardi Palace, The San Marco Monastery ( Fra Beato Angelico masterpieces), Academy Galleries, SS: Annunziata Square (Ospedale degli Innocenti): all this is only 500-600 meters from the apartment. A short distance from the apartment, the Fortezza da Basso. The neighbourhood is well served by tipical shops, restaurants, supermarkets (one of this, open 7/7 days, lays 20 meters from the apartment) and the characteristic San Lorenzo Central Market.
