About Lucia Poggiali
A bit photographer, a bit creative art craft host for primary school children, much mummy, and full time host for Principio Apartment. I love to take care of our guests by showing them Florence's particular locations frequented by Florentine. To be present at their arrival and departure, to host people from every part of the world is for me a big pleasure. My greatest satisfactions is to see them leaving Florence fully satisfied and wishful to come again.

We traveled a lot (and still do!), for business reasons and for leisure, and we really like to get in touch with people coming from other cultures.

Great stay in Florence
This apartment is a fantastic place to stay when in Florence. It is a great location, very clean, bright and lots of room. It was nice to be able to come back to such a lovely place to relax after a long day. Having a washer/dryer is a big plus if you are traveling for several weeks.. Lucia is great to help in any way you might need. We highly recommend this property.
Dear Jim and Frances it was a pleasure to meet and host you. So glad you enjoyed the apartment coming back after a long day. Thank you for your review : ) Take care, Lucia
Very Nice Property In a Great Location
The apartment exceeded our expectations and the location was great. The walk from the train station took a couple of minutes. Lots of great restaurants nearby. We would stay here again. Thanks Lucia.
You are welcome, it was really a pleasure host you. Thank you very much for your review. Lucia
Conveniently located apartment in Florende
My husband and I loved staying in this beautiful and spacious apartment in Florence. It was within walking distance of all the museums we wanted to visit and there are some great restaurants nearby. Lucia was very welcoming and friendly. We had everything we needed to be comfortable during our stay. We would recommend this apartment to others visiting Florence.
Dear Susan thanks so much for your review, it is a pleasure for me read it! Lucia
Great location, great owner
Our family of 3 spent a week in Florence. Prior to our arrival Lucia was awesome at communicating with us and making recommendations for the day trips we wanted to plan.
The apartment was beautiful, well appointed, and in close proximity (just a short walk) to the train station, restaurants, museums, shops, etc. Lucia has it stocked with pamphlets and books about Florence and nearby attractions for us to browse.
Per Lucia's recommendation, we took a day tour of Tuscany with a driver (Luciano) and visited Sienna, a winery (for a tour, lunch and wine tasting), San Gimignano, and another winery that had a great view of San Gimignano from a distance. We really enjoyed the day, away from the crowd and a ton of walking in the city.
I highly recommend this apartment.
Dear Reiko thank so much for your review! So glad you enjoyed the daily tour to the countryside , the winery, and the stay in Firenze. I really hope to host you Alex and Richard again. Take care , Lucia
We had a great stay in this condo! It is very comfy and clean. We had everything we needed. It was really nice to have air conditioning and so nice to come back to a cool apartment after walking around the city all day. Also, this was a great location. It is very close to most everything you want to see.
Lucia was a very gracious host and stayed in contact with us through the trip to make sure all was going well. She also provided a great book with lots of information and restaurant recommendations. This was great to have. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
Thank you so much Kasey for your great review, I 'm glad you enjoyed Firenze and the cool air of the apartment . Lucia
Principio apartment is located in the heart of Florence, a perfect starting point to experience all historical attractions within walking distance.
Exact adress is via dell'Alloro n. 6: it will be a big plus to have the Duomo a few steps down the street and get to Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery, Piazza della Signoria, Santa Croce in a while !
