About Gianna Piazzesi

The house was built by my grandfather, and my family has lived there forever

Why Gianna Piazzesi chose Isolotto-Legnaia (Quartiere 4)

The apartment is very close to the city centre but it is not within the city wall (therefore, it is extremely calm) and it is in a family cottage. In this house my father, my uncles, my cousins and I were born, therefore it is my home...the family home; it has been restored for my son that has lived there until last year.

What makes this apartment unique

Exceptional privacy, entering the house you go through the garden which is packed with flowers and you immediately perceive a sense of peace. Looking out the windows a big olive tree transmits a feeling of serenity.


Nearest Barpub
50 Metres
Francavilla road
Car: not necessary

The house is located in a well served area

To reach it by car, take the highway and exit at North Florence.

With the train, from the central station you can arrive, either with the tram line (stop is at 100 meters) or the bus (stop is at 80 meters).

With the air plane, the shuttle service takes you to the central station where you take the tram line.

Every Tuesday at the Cascine Park a characteristic market takes place with many stalls, The Park can be reached by foot in a few minutes. The neighbourhood is served well with supermarkets, drug stores, restaurants, pizzerias, and ATM. The Monticelli district is well served and is the only zone of Florence that has a tram line that passes every 4 - 8 minutes.

The apartment was in a great location away from the crowds but with easy access by tram or bus to everything in Florence. The landlords were outstanding, thoughtful, and exceedingly helpful!

Wonderful apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful 3 weeks in this apartment. The location is very handy - close to the tram stop and within walking distance to the old historic centre and many convenient stores nearby. The apartment is clean and very well appointed. The car park is handy as is the lovely front garden. The owner, Gianna, welcomed us like family. When we arrived the kitchen table was full of beautiful goodies - fruit, food and wine and her hospitality continued throughout our stay there. She was always available to help us with any questions we had. We really enjoyed our stay in Florence and this was due much to our comfortable accommodation and our beautiful hostess. I would thoroughly recommend this lovely apartment.

Enjoy Firenze like a local and book this place ASAP!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were greeted by Gianna and her husband with a lovely bottle of Chianti and a thoughtful supply of fruit, milk and other essentials.

I have to say that was such a lovely personal touch, we had stayed at other VBRO places and they did not have a welcome basket. Gianna is very sweet and accommodating. Her husband was just as adorable.

Such a great location, the apartment was a 5-minute walk and 12-minute Tram ride from Firenze’s historical center. No need for a car!

The kitchen is well equipped; the beds are comfortable. It also included a beautiful garden. It is a 2 floor building, but the upstairs apartment was empty, so we had complete privacy.

There’s a little supermarket right around the corner. We did some cooking so that was nice to have so close by.

We would totally stay there again and recommend it to friends and family!

Excellent apartment, great location, fabulous host

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I stayed in Gianna's apartment for 2 weeks. It was great. Gianna is a terrific host and made our arrival easy.

The apartment is exactly as promised, the pictures are accurate. It's a good location, a bit outside the historical centre but easy transit options. The bus and tram are both less than a five minute walk and the trip to the centre is about 12 minutes.

It's nice to be away from the hustle and bustle.

The kitchen is well equipped, the beds are comfortable.

If I'm lucky enough to come back to Florence this is where I'll stay.
