About Fabrizio

I am passionate about music from the 1960s and 70s, and play in a band when time permits. I love animals, sports, good cinema, travel, and I love the arts. I love meeting new people, and I am passionate about my Florence and Tuscany.

Fabrizio purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Fabrizio chose Historic Center

This is the original centre of Renaissance Florence. Just steps from

the appartment is the Medici-Riccardi Palace, home of the powerful

Medici family, who ruled Florence, and brought it to the world stage during the renaissance. This area is a mix of small craftsmens' workshops and monumental florentine grandeur, and this mix makes it a very special and unusual part of my city. I love the idea that the Medici, and artists like Michelangelo once walked these streets.

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is right in the centre of the historical centre, with easy access to all of Florence's monuments, galleries and amenities, yet it offers pretty views, plenty of light, and it is on a quiet street. This is an extraordinary combination for historical Florence. Its colours and proportions make it welcoming, warm and restful, so it's perfect after a day on your feet.

STYLISH APARTMENT IN LOCATED IN WONDERFUL PLACE

  • 5 of 5

I was in Florence for the first time and it was amazing. The apartment was located in the city centre near historic sights, restaurants and excellent food market. It was convenient that the apartment was near the centre, because we could make a pause during a sightseeing. Florence is full of the museums, historical buildings, nice people, great food and excellent cafes. The apartment is spacious, comfortable, clean and made with a exquisite taste. There are a lot of very interesting things like old espresso maker, very nice paintings etc. In the apartment there are a lot of very interesting books about art and travelling. It was very good that we could go to the food market near and then we could cook the fresh meal from the local food. Fabrizio was willing to help and answer our questions. When we were leaving for the Czech Republic we couldn't find the bus station and Fabrizio helped us very much. Thank you again! We are looking forward to coming back.

Spacious and decorated in exquisite style

  • 4 of 5

Our 6th successful stay in accommodation belonging to Fabrizio and family. This time we chose the centrally based flat in San Lorenzo, which was perfect for sightseeing in the heart of the old town, within easy walking for restaurants, station and markets. As shown on the listing, the apartment has everything needed, had a lift and was tastefully presented and well maintained. Thank you again, Fabrizio!

A beautifully appointed apartment in a very quiet street in the middle of historical Florence. Just a stone's throw from the Medici Chapel, the Basilica of San Lorenzo, Florence Duomo and Michelangelo's David, This is the original centre of Renaissance Florence. Just steps from the appartment is the Medici-Riccardi Palace, home of the powerful Medici family, who ruled Florence, and brought it to the world stage during the renaissance. This area is a mix of small craftsmens'

workshops and monumental florentine grandeur, and this mix makes it a very special and unusual part of my city. Full of great restaurants, trattorie and osterie, this area also offers some of the city's best places to eat, as well as easy on-foot access to the city's historical centre and its many museums, galleries and monuments.

For trips further afield, I can offer you private tours to Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa, Lucca and the stunning Cinque Terre, or if you prefer a shopping trip, I can take you to the renowned Prada factory outlet, The Mall (Armani, Gucci, Ferragamo, Bottega Veneta and many others), or to the Barberino outlet to the north of the city, all for special daily or half-day rates. We are also in wine heaven here, with plenty of opportunities to discover some of the best red wines available, with wine tasting tours that take in some of the most beautiful vinyards in the Chianti, Montepulciano and Montalcino areas.
