Why Pier Luigi Pisani chose Historic Center

The apartment is in a strategic location, a stone throw from central train station, Duomo Cathedral and all attractions. There's an elevator that's not a common facility in the center of the city and the building itself is elegant and of historical and cultural value, residence of Ugo Foscolo's patron Candida Quirina Mocenni, Martelli's relative, in '700.

What makes this apartment unique

A unique location between Santa Maria Novella, Cappelle Medicee, San Lorenzo Market and Duomo Cathedral. The area is full of restaurants, shops, supermarkets, and close to the incredible in-door market of San Lorenzo, the gastronomic mecca of the city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Pier is the best host I have seen so far. He is very friendly and nice to accommodate our changes in the trip (because of the Air France Pilots' strike, we have been changing the arrival time but Pier is so patient and nice to us). He welcomed us in the apartment and showed us around. Let us know how to operate all the equipment in his lovely apartment. He even bought us fruit and drinks to welcome us. He also provided us a map of Florence and told us where are the attractions and the direction. Gave us useful tips and restaurant recommendations. He sent us email on the next day to make sure we do not have any questions.

For the apartment itself, it is located at the city center which is less than 10 minutes walk from the train station. The interior is remodeled and it gives you modern but blended with historical feeling (the building was built in 17th century). It is the best apartment we stayed during our Europe trip. We for sure will recommend this property to our friends and will come visit again in the future. =)

Central location.

  • 4 of 5

Well appointed apartment. Luigi, our host, was very attentive. He met us at the garage, and let us into the unit. If you do laundry, pay attention to the operating instructions. The unit works great, but its tricky to operate. There is street noise at night, so bring ear plugs if your a light sleeper.

Long weekend stay at this luxurious apartment in the heart of Florence

We had a fantastic weekend at this beautifully appointed apartment ideally located with the key Florence attractions within easy walking distance. Piero was a great host who explained everything, checked that we were happy and had included lots of thoughtful touches to make our stay easy and memorable.

Great apartment, great owner, great facilities and great location.

Pier is gem

  • 5 of 5

Place was great perfect location, Pier is totally accommodating, nice, and roomy. It is a little loud due to area, but the apartment out weighs the noise. Would stay here again, and would recommend this place to anyone.

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has a great location, close to so many Florence sites. It is clean, modern, and well equipped. The owner Piero is very gracious and helpful. He even met us at the train station and we walked 5 minutes to the apartment which he had so thoughtfully provided a few food and beverage items for our stay. There is a fantastic food market next door and is close to many restaurants and shops. If we return, we will definitely rent this apartment again.

Very modern and luxurious apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Piero greeted us on the 1st day and showed us the apartment. He was very friendly and gave us information where to go, eat, shop, etc. The apartment itself is very modern and luxurious. We loved it! The market is right next door and there is also a Mercato Centrale few minutes walk away. The apartment is also very close to the train station, very convenient for traveling to other cities. Overall 5 stars!
