Elisabetta purchased this Apartment in 1997
Why Elisabetta chose San Marco-San Gallo
This apartment has always been property of my family. I live in the same neighbourhood, few metres away. I know well this area full of bars and restaurants, so you can enjoy a pleasant stay.
What makes this Apartment unique
This apartment is a typical old Florentine building, very essential and high-ceilinged: the roof windows make the house very bright and let you enjoy a wonderful view of the Duomo and the Giotto’s bell tower.

Great accommodations and in a wonderful nook of the city
Easily accessible by walking, we enjoyed our first time in Florence! This property was in a great location, and the amenities fit our group perfectly. Would highly recommend!
Lovely flat near the duomo
Elisabetta’s Flat was absolutely perfect for my friend and I while we were exploring Florence. It has a beautiful balcony overlooking the duomo and a bedroom that overlooks a plaza. Elisabetta was a great host in letting us have a later checkout due to a late flight home as well! Would recommend this to any of my friends.
Clean apartment on the 3rd floor in a PERFECT location...
As already mentioned by other reviewers, the apartment is in a great location. First, it is right by the bus station so if you are getting to Florence via the train, you can just take a bus and you will get off right in front of the house. This is a great advantage…also, a bit of a disadvantage too since there’s always a ton of people waiting for buses to go to work in the morning as well as going home at end of the day. Be careful when punching in code to main door during this time. Second, the museum where Michael Angelo’s David is is literally just around the corner and all the main attractions in Florence (Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery, etc.) are within walking distance. Thirdly, there are plenty of places to eat…McDonald’s is 5 mins away (i.e., if you like this type of food) and other types of food too. Not to mention there are a couple of groceries/markets where you can buy food to make at the apartment.
The apartment itself is very clean and there were enough beds for our family of 5 to sleep in…and each room is equipped with an AC which was a really nice plus. Again, as already pointed out in other reviews, the apartment is on the 3rd floor (top floor) and there are at least 6 flights of stairs to get there but no stairs within the apartment. So, if you don’t mind the climb... I definitely recommend this place to anyone…
Lastly, Elisabetta is the nicest host…and she responded to all my inquiry and questions promptly. Best of all, she was nice enough to let us check in way earlier than the normal check in time. I had informed her that our train from Venice was coming in before noon and was asking for a place to leave our luggage so we can start exploring Florence as soon as we get there. She offered to keep our luggage in her home closet if the apartment was not available for early check in or if it is, we can check in early. This made a difference in our Florence visit! Elisabetta gave us clear instructions on how to get in to the building and to get the keys to the apartment itself. We didn’t have any problems at all….
Very kind host
Clean, well located.
Elisabetta was so kind. My family loved the location (easy walk to all of the main sites in Florence). Very comfortable and spacious for our four.
Ospiti veramente deliziosi e ruspettosi delle regole ed orari. Sono felice che si siano trovati bene nel mio appartamento che è perfetto per una famiglia con due figli, con una camera matrimoniale ed una a due letti a castello.
great apartment in the perfect location
Elisabetta was very accommodating of our late arrival time and check out which was so nice. The apartment was clean, lovely and in the perfect location. Walking distance from everything in Florence and the bus stop is literally right outside the front door. Great price and great stay!
Giovani ospiti molto educati e rispettosi delle regole che noto con piacere hanno apprezzato l’appartamento ed anche la sua posizione molto favorevole e la vicinanza delle principlai linee di autobus.
The best advantage of this appartment is its location. Is across the corner from the Accademia Museum and two blocks from the Duomo. Very well connected, close to restaurants and a small supermarket. I would just say it is located in a 4th storie and no elevator. We drove to Firenze, so has to leave the car in a publick parking which charges you €10 first 24 hours, €15 second and €20 the third day and from then on, €20. The ealk takes around 12 minutes, so you will need to tskebyour luggage from there. The apartment is on an area where you may not be able to enter with your car (depending on the restrictions).
Overall a good place, very clean and as depicted in the pictures.
The apartment is in the center of the city very next to the train station. Its location is perfect to visit the city but it has its drawbacks for who wants to reach it in car because it is in the inaccessible zone to the cars.
In the center of firenze the buildings are very old and they hardly have the elevator.
The apartment overlooks a crowded square full of bars, restaurants and pastry shops in the heart of the cirty, few metres away from the Gallery of the Academy with the Michelangelo’s David, the San Marco Museum with the works of Beato Angelico and other attractions. The apartment is near all the main bus stops, so you can get anywhere in the city centre or on the outskirts of the town (Fiesole or the Piazzale Michelangelo). Few metres away from the apartment there is an excellent restaurant, L’Accademia, where you can enjoy the best dishes of the Italian cookery.
