MASO APARTMENT
We were met at the apartment by Paola who was very thorough in her explaining the apartment and the surrounding neighborhood. This apartment is more of a house to me.. Superbly furnished in every respectable way and the long balcony is very nice with the panaramic view facing the historic center. It is up on the 6th floor but here is a small lift. There is also a well equipped kitchen and washer machine in the bathroom which is very simple to use. The wifi and satellite tv were excellent and was nice to have after long days of walking around Florence or the day trips out of FLorence to be able to watch the news in English. This neighborhood has so many restaurant and there\'s a grocery very close as well. Only issue i see with this apartment is the bed is a tad small for two people but we managed to survive. All in all a fantastic stay here and in Florence

GUELFOTTO APARTMENT
Nice location central to the train station and for sightseeing. We found the neighborhood could be rather loud, especially in the evenings. If you are going when it is warm, be aware that there is no AC, and that leaving the windows open lets in all of the street noise, which can go on rather late. The "shower" leaves a lot to be desired, as it is a hand-held hose in an open tub with no shower curtain. The apartment is nicely appointed and very large.

FARINELLI APARTMENT
The location was excellent. It was just a short bus ride to city center. Francesco was an excellent host. He welcomed us to the apartment, oriented us to the city and left us materials to help us plan our excursions. He was always available by phone and answered our SOS when we got locked out. (We used too many of the locks on the door.) I strongly recommend the apartment to those who can maneuver the short hill. It would be nothing for 30 somethings, but for us 60 somethings, it was a challenge some days.

Dearest Edy,rnI am so grateful to have met you.... via the random energy of the universe!? When I tell my friends how we came to meet they are surprised, but not really. By the grace of God I met you and was able to enjoy your special apartment. I felt the love and attention you payed to everything. It allowed Charlotte and me to enjoy the beauty that was all around us.rnThank you for your kindness and friendship. I know I will see you again soon.rnLove and friendship,rnCaroline and Charlotte XOrn

BRUNELLESCHI APARTMENT
Perfect apartment for our family of 5. First we must comment on the exceptional warmth and hospitality of the owner Angela. She left a very welcome basket of goodies. The apartment has everything you need on holidays and was easy walking distance to all the sights..the stairs werent a problem..at the end of the day you felt as if you were climbing to an oasis. Thankyou Angela we will definitely recommend your beautiful apartment to friends back home.

FARINELLI APARTMENT
In May 2014 we stayed in the apartment for 1 month. It was a perfect accommodation for 2 people.rnThe apartment is well appointed and comfortable. The Wi-Fi was very good. We enjoyed the peaceful garden after a day of visiting the busy tourist area. The neighborhood is lovely and peaceful with wonderful local shops and restaurants. The nights are quiet. The apartment is a 3 block walk uphill from the main street. The bus is nearby at Porta Romano and less than 10 minutes from the Arno.

CASA BUONARROTI
My husband and I just spent a month in this lovely, well appointed apartment that is very centrally located in the historic center of Florence. It is very convenient, less than a 10 minute walk to the Duomo and the Piazza della Signoria and a 20 minute walk to the train station. The apartment is spacious and well equipped. The kitchen is well appointed for cooking meals at home. We also hosted family and friends at various points during the month and had adequate room for extra guests and the second bathroom was great. We have been very pleased with our stay and would highly recommend this apartment.

OLIMPO APARTMENT
The apartment is big 4 baths and 4 bedrooms as described (the bedroom with single beds has no outside windows but opens onto an interior shaft) but looks NOTHING like the elegant pictures on the ad. We actually argued with the representative that this was not the apartment in the pictures it was, but the pictures were taken a VERY long time ago. The place is run down: upholstered furniture is very worn and saggy, the walls desperately need painting. Bathrooms were clean but everything else was dusty. Table cover was absolutely filthy we scrubbed it and then rinsed it in the shower. Showers were good, linen was good, but the wiring was inadequate could only use one burner on the stove on high at a time or two burners on medium anything more blew all the breakers. The location is great but very noisy busy street and a MacDonalds immediately below that is a happening place until the wee hours of the morning. Even with the windows closed we needed earplugs to sleep.rnrnReply of the owner:rnrnMany thanks for your review. I feel sorry to hear that you were notrnsatisfied with the apartment OLIMPO. Your negative review is the firstrnone we receive in 8 years we are working with this apartment. Thernapartment was completely renewed 2 years ago (before the apartment wasrnsplit in three sparate ones) and most of the pics were taken afterrnrenovation and correspond exactly to the apartment. Most of thernfurniture is antique, but absolutely it is not worn and saggy. Wernnoticed that on the walls there are some stains (it happens sometimesrnthat clients slam their baggages on the walls) and unfortunatelyrnbeing the apartment constantly rented we could not remove them.rnAs to the apartment being dusty and the table cover filthy: we feelrnsorry about this, you should have informed us immediately and we wouldrnhave sent our cleaning lady to solve this.rnInadequate wiring: in all apartments we manage in Florence can happenrnthe same, not because the wiring is inadequate but because thernavailable power per hour is not enough if you use all the electricrnappliances there are in the apartment at the same time. We recommendrnnot to use more than 3 at the same time, to prevent electricity leaps.rnNoisy Location: the apartment, that has double glazed window, is in the heart of the city centre (we are 5 min from the Cathedral) and city centres (not only in FLorence, but in any other town in the world) might be noisy, not only because of the traffic (which is limited in this area) but also because ofrnpeople standing outside the restaurants and / or bars close to thernapartment. Best regards Cristina.

ZANOBI APARTMENT
October 13, Florence, awesome vacation!!! Barbara, thank you for describing the apartment just as it is. It was a wonderful surprise (stuff on the net can be deceiving). The apartment is beautiful, clean, and in perfect location in relation to Florence Centro Vecchio. The only one thing I would add that it would be of value to the next guests: there is need for window screens, we had mosquitoes and the spray did not help. We did not care, Florence is an amazing city, with amazing history. Thank yournJoannarnLos Angles Oct13rn

TORRE CORSO DONATI
This is a lovely apartment with amazing views over Florence, especially from the top floor living room. Plenty of space for a family of 4 (including 2 teenagers), and quieter than we expected for an apartment in the middle of a city. There is a supermarket about 2 minutes walk away and the Duomo is about 7 minutes walk. Plenty of restaurants on the doorstep. It is atmospheric but also relaxing as you are high up, above the bustle of the piazza. We loved our stay and would highly recommend the apartment for anyone who is able to climb lots of steps!rn

THE COURTYARD APARTMENT
I stayed at the Courtyard in June of 2012 while visiting my daughter who was studying in Florence. The apartment was wonderful. It had everything I needed, was in a great location, and Daniela was always happy to help with anything I needed. I especially enjoyed the patio on the warm Florence evenings. My daughter and I also enjoyed talking with Daniela and her family, giving us a unique perspective of Florence and Italian culture. I would definitely stay at the Courtyard if I am lucky enough to visit Florence again.

REPARATA APARTMENT
Hello Barbara, I've just returned to New York after a long stay in Europe and just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your assistance with the Reparata Apartment in Florence. The flat was absolutely perfect ... in every way. In fact, it surpassed all of our expectations. The owners were delightful to deal with and prompt with responding to all of my communications. We fell in love with Florence, as I'm sure most visitors do, and the Reparata apartment provided added value to our extraordinary experience. Thanks again for all your assistance. Russelrnrn

ROMA APARTMENT
My college-aged son and I stayed at this lovely apartment while I researched an upcoming historical novel and he experienced Italy for the first time. Our family has had the good fortune to tour several European countries over the years and typically we rent apartments both for convenience and the chance to experience a little bit more the true local feel of a city, neighborhood, or village. Of the many vacation rentals we've had, I honestly can say this apartment was one of the loveliest. The view of the Duomo from the bedrooms' windows and the sound of the tower's bells were exquisite. The apartment is centrally located, beautifully furnished and equipped. Irene is a lovely host, thoughtful and attentive. She was full of very helpful advice and exceedingly gracious in helping with things like finding a grocery store and bakery, and a taxi the morning we left. We will definitely return to this beautiful apartment when next in Florence.

COSTA APARTMENT
My husband, 10 month old baby, and I stayed at this BEAUTIFUL apt for 5 days. rnLOCATION: We loved being on this side of the Arno, great location! 16euro taxi ride from SMN Train, 25euro taxi ride to Firenze Airport. Bus stops not too far. Great restaurants nearby and supermarket just down the street.rnINTERIOR: The rock accent wall, high beams, wide open space, and beautiful decor was worth the tradeoff of walking up to the 2nd floor of quite a steep street everyday. Well lit, very inviting with modern kitchen. (hopefully frig door will be fixed so that its not so tight!) Beds were comfortable, even a nice clean playpen for baby to sleep in. Bathroom clean with good water pressure in shower.rnOWNER: Bottle of Chianti provided. Niece Eleonora was very nice in welcoming us in. She even lent us a stroller for the baby. Maria was absolutely helpful and always replied in a timely manner. rnWe would absolutely stay here again! We love Firenze :)rn

ALBERONE APARTMENT
We stayed here over Easter as a family of four (two teenagers and parents) and can highly recommend it. Very good location a couple of minutes from the train and bus station. The apartment is extremely well decorated and equipped, the street side bedroom a little noisy at times but not a problem, the rear bedroom which has the twin bed option is very quiet. In the street below there is an excellent delicatessen and close by there are numerous cafes and restaurants. Everything you'd want in Florence is a short walk away. I would stay here again when in Florence.

REPARATA APARTMENT
My wife, 18 year old son and I stayed in the Reparata apartment for a week in late October 2012. We had a great and comfortable stay. This is a spacious, clean well lit apartment in an ideal location. We walked to the train station (15 min away) a few times to take day trips and it was so convenient. Grocery around the corner, bars and great restaurants close by and a view of the top of the duomo make this a great choice for a stay. The owner Stefano was great too!

ZANOBI APARTMENT
What an excellent place to stay for the 3 nights we were in Florence - handy to everything we wanted to do, the apartment well appointed (particularly appreciated the washing machine after 3 weeks on tour!) There was work going on in the building but we were not disturbed by it. Barbara is a pleasure to deal with and had many helpful suggestions.

GIOIA APARTMENT
We had a fantastic stay here. The location was perfect, right in the heart of everything 2 - 5 minutes from the Duomo, Piazza Signoria, Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio etc. The view from the balcony towards the Duomo was a real bonus. The facilities for the price were great and the apartment was comfortable for our family of 4 with 2 late teenagers. It can be a little noisy at night in the street side bedroom but closing shutters helped. If you have any mobility issues be aware of the stairs, we had no problems and it helped our fitness, coming and going several times a day.rnI would happily recommend this apartment to anyone looking for cozy hideaway right in the heart of Florence.

What a wonderful, gorgeous location with stunningly beautiful views over Florence with the most amazing atmosphere everyday listening to the church bells ringing over Florence - just magical. The location is very central to the Ponte Vecchio, cafes, bars and restruarants with beautiful walks into the central part of Florence. Thank you for the most wonderful and enchanting holiday experience.

CALIPSO APARTMENT
We thoroughly enjoyed staying in the Calipso Apartment in Florence. There was plenty of space for us (two couples), the beds were comfortable, and we loved having two full bathrooms with showers. The room at the front of the apartment overlooks a busy street which can be noisy at night, but the back bedroom was quiet. We did not even need the third bedroom. The location was superb. It was within easy walking distance of all the main attractions, shopping, restaurants, and grocery stores. Check in was a breeze and we appreciated receiving a map of the area along with tips on where the grocery stores and some good restaurants were located. Christina also took care of scheduling transportation for us to the train station upon check out. The only real surprise for us was how small the washing machine was. We had never seen one that little and it took us more loads than expected to get everything cleaned, but it worked out just fine. If we ever travel to Florence again, I would definitely plan to return to this apartment.

ROMA APARTMENT
My daughter and I stayed in Irene\'s apartment which exceeded our expectations. We had a fantastic time. Irene was so kind, generous and went out of her way to make our stay special. She showed us where to shop, gave us her invitation to a wonderful exhibition whereby we had a once in a life time opportunity to walk along the the famous corridor from the Palazzo Vecchio over the river Arno to the Palazzo Pitti. Irene treated us like we were \"family\" and made our stay in Florence one to always remember. Irene thank you again for being a wonderful host.

SIGNORIA APARTMENT
Our family of 4 (including 2 college students) traveled here August 2012 and, instead of renting 2 hotel rooms or trying to find a quad, decided to rent an apt. The location of this apt was just perfect-- overlooking Piazza della Signoria--and we loved opening the windows in the evening and listening to the sounds of the people and the nightly music in the square below. Not too loud or intrusive, but just enough to provide a wonderful ambience to our Florence experience. KIds (who are over 6' tall) were just fine on fold-out sofa and queen bed in adjacent alcove was comfortable. Small but suitable kitchen was stocked with all the basics and nearby supermarket was great so we didn't have to eat our every single meal. We really loved being so close to all the major sights and would definitely stay here again. Elevator was a bit temperamental but did not dampen our enthusiasm for this apt. We especially loved having air conditioning in August. For those who are leery of renting, this was our first trip where we rented apts in each major city and we highly recommend this method of accommodation--beats staying in a hotel and provides so much more flexibility! Booking was easy and straightforward; no unpleasant surprises, and dealing with the owner was a pleasure. Highly recommend this apt and would definitely stay here again. Thank you Umberto, for making this apt available!

ZANOBI APARTMENT
24/7/12 to 2/08/12 - The apartment located at 44 Via San Zanobi is an excellent value for money home away from home for a couple. The airconditioned bedroom with its comfortable bed was welcome relief from the 37 degree days we experienced. The washing machine was well used because we had been travelling for 7 weeks. Centrally located you are but a few minutes walk to the large food market at San Lorenzo where shopping for supplies is a real \'local\' experience. We walked to all major attractions from this apartment and recommed it to anyone wanting good value accommodation in Florence.

RUOTE APARTMENT
#32 Ruote apartment. We spent 10 happy days here in June 2012 with two older teens. We were thrilled with the absolute cleanliness, comfortable beds, and great, safe location close to Florence center. Very spacious, with privacy afforded by bedrooms at opposite ends of the apartment. Antonello is available and friendly, and left us a nice Chianti as a welcome gift. The air-conditioning is superb, and helped during 95 degree days. A quiet leafy window view as the apartment is at the rear of the building. All the appliances worked, as did the WiFi. We are used to immediate copious American hot water, so it took awhile to adjust to the more environmentally-responsible European shower. We took day trips to Siena and Venice, but it was great to have a home base for the whole trip. We absolutely recommend this jewel.

TOSINGHI COURT APARTMENT
We loved the apartment- just around the corner from the Duomo but within walking distance to attractions. It had everything we needed- a well equipped kitchen, washing machine, comfortable bed - a home away from home. It was quiet out of hours- the neighbours were renovating but did not worry us as we were out exploring. I certainly would recommend the apartment to family and friends and is a great alternative to hotels.

BRUNELLESCHI APARTMENT
The Brunelleschi apartment was the perfect accommodation for our honeymoon! It was comfortable and homey and the landlord was wonderful. She provided great information as well as service and assistance when needed. Don't let the 66 steps deter you from this wonderful apartment with a gracious owner....just think of it as an excuse to eat gelato twice each day :)

SANTA CROCE APARTMENT
Stayed here 26th May for a week, lovely centrally located apartment ideal to explore Florence and close by to Santa Croce . Lots of places to eat nearby. Apartment was clean and tidy and had the benefit of a balcony, overall very happy however the four flights of stairs get increasingly narrow and steeper as you climb them, not suitable if you have problems walking. Also there was no kettle in the appartment to make Tea and oddly no bottle opener to open wine or beer!. We did contact the agent about this but they didnt reply so we purchased a corkscrew/opener and left it behind for the next guest. The only real negatrive if you look over the wall of the balcony to the small tiled roof immediately below four used condoms obviously from previous occupants! not very nice.rnBarbara's answer: thanks Ian for leaving this message: We apologise for the corkscrew/opener. very often the people take it away, it seems to be a special present from Florence! I have contaced the owner (who was informed by Neil) and he beg your pardon about his inadvertence.rnAbout the complain of the stairs I can only reply that is clealry specified in the web site that the apartment is at the 4th floor without elevator! We apologize also for also the condoms on next roof but this is very unusual event and the cleaning workers usually don't check the roof! They will doi t surely the next time!

Tom Keating | Australia
ROMA APARTMENT
The apartment is well located very close to all the attractions of Florence. We found the host however to be rude and impatient and too concerned to get away to another appointment rather than assist with our orientation. Similarly at the end of our stay her principle concern was to inspect for damage. The washing machine is located on an external balcony. Inadequate towels and bedding was supplied. The ancient lift takes some getting used to but is efficient. Overall this is a good apartment but our experience was diminished by the rudeness of the host. We did not find this in England, Dublin, Prague, Bellagio or Venice.

RUOTE APARTMENT
The Ruote Apartment is a lovely home away from home with spices and guide books thrown in! It was perfect for our family of 4 the kids couldn't have survived without the internet. In December it was very comfortable and we got the washing dry on the outside line! It was great being met by the lovely owner and finding out about him and the local shops and restaurants. Thank you. I am recommending your apartment to all my friends.

REPARATA APARTMENT
When I first started planning our trip to Florence, I started booking hotels. To start the trip, I had 6 days booked in a hotel very close to your apartment, then planned to take a train to Venice and a new hotel, return to Florence, another hotel...it started to really stress me out. When I discovered the web site and specifically your apartment, my stress level dropped considerably. It worked out perfectly for us. Having the full kitchen, laundry and two baths made our stay so much more comfortable than staying in a hotel room. I enjoyed the spaciousness of the apartment and the natural light because of all the windows. One of my favorite things was to sit and soak up the afternoon sun on the balcony with a book and a glass of wine. We were happy with the location, as it was away from all the crowds near the Duomo, but just a short walk away, and having a supermarket down the block was very convenient. Having the apartment made it so much easier to travel as well, knowing we didn\'t have to move all our luggage from hotel to hotel or city to city. Thank you again. If I\'m ever able to visit Florence again, I would definitely book this apartment. Lisa

OBLATE APARTMENT
My stay at the Oblate apartment was great! The apartment is so large, airy, clean and bright. The location is so convenient to all the sights with a great view of the duomo outside. The terrace is awesome with stunning views and beautiful flowers. I would definitely stay again. The apartment exceeded my expectations in terms of great location, brightness, amenities, and of course the terrace!

CANDIDO APARTMENT
Hi Barbara, I just wanted to write you a quick note to tell you how much we\\\'ve enjoyed staying in Candido apartment this week. It\\\'s so much more spacious and comfortable than a hotel room, and we especially appreciate the amenities like the kitchen, books, and nice furnishings. The location is perfect for visiting our daughter (who is staying only one block away) and for visiting all the nice attractions in Florence. I\\\'m especially fond of the Mercado Centrale--I wish we had such a nice market back home!

THE COURTYARD APARTMENT
We stayed in this apartment for 5 days and it was the highlight of our trip to Italy. The apt is lovely and beautifully furnished with a total kitchen with every conceivable appliance. It is on a quiet residential street within walking distance of everything and with a supermarket and non-tourist restaurants close by. I cannot imagine a better place for such a totally reasonable cost. The hosts were unobtrusive, knowledgeable and totally welcoming. The description of the apartment is, if anything, understated. All in all we loved the apartment, and Florence

I have been staying in the Courtyard apartment for a month and it has been one of the best experiences ever. Kind, intelligent, multilingual people with taste and kindness to spare. The apartment silent and cool because of its internal location and wonderfully located among food take-outs and the market. Couldn't recommend any higher. Best value ever.

We stayed for 9 days in August 2011 and had a lovely time. The apartment is very clean, the views from the balcony are amazing, and of course, Florence is a beautiful city. The apartment is even nicer than the photos. We really appreciated the hospitality and friendliness of the owners, Alfredo and Paola. Thank you for a wonderful stay, and we hope to visit again in the future.

PERSEO APARTMENT
Fabulous 9 days in the Perseo apartment! The 9 of us (5 adults, 4 children) had plenty of space. You cannot beat this location just a few doors down from the Piazza della Signoria. Stick your head out of the living room and 2/4 bedrooms and look to your right and see the lovely tower of the Palazzo Vecchio. We were lucky to see the free concerts in the piazza below from our window, ballet, symphony, choir. We walked to the mercato centrale almost daily, but there are smaller shops nearby for daily needs on Via delle Terme and Borgo Santi Apostoli. Each room has it's own air conditioning device which was well appreciated during hot summer days. The kitchen was very functional with all necessities. We cooked some big meals including a great bistecca purchased at mercato centerale on the grill pan. The interior decorating is charming and the layout of the apartment is great. The apartment was very clean and the manager very friendly, fluent English, and prompt when we arrived. Able to get lots of privacy and the living room/dining room space is large and spacious for all to gather comfortably. You can easily walk here from the Santa Maria Novella station in 15-20 minutes. If you cannot handle city sounds or consider the possible need to use ear plugs then perhaps a less central location is best, but this is the flat to stay in to experience Firenze! Great having wifi but somehow it just disappeared the last 4 days and we were not able to contact the manager/representative to fix the issue but we didn't try that hard to resolve the issue. There is a very particular garbage sorting/schedule that is important to adhere to but we had no problem with this. Lastly mosquitoes were making their way into the flat and attacking some of us, but I'd rather not have window screens myself. If we get a chance to return to Florence again and have a large group, I would hope to have the opportunity to stay here again.

GIGLIO APARTMENT
We stayed at the Giglio apartment in June and found it to be everything we needed during our stay. Daniela gave us a quick history lesson of Florence and the best places to go etc. The apartment was clean, well equipped and oh so central! Only the mosquitoes hassled us a bit, but thats not Daniela's fault! Thanks a lot, will certainly recommend the apartment to anyone going to Florence, which the THE most charming city in Italy!

GIADA APARTMENT
We had a most enjoyable stay at the Giada apartment. It was very nice to come back each day to our "home" in Florence! The location is good, within walking distance of most things that Florence has to offer. We had no trouble following Margherita's helpful instructions about how find the apartment.

RUOTE APARTMENT
This is a great apartment in a central location to everything you would want to do in Florence. It was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The kitchen was very well laid out and equipped and we cooked some great meals there. A supermarket is just a few doors away so shopping for supplies is convenient. It is a couple of blocks away from Plazza di San Marco which has all the bus lines but you can walk from here across town in 20 minutes. The landlord, Antoinio, was helpful and spoke English very well. A real bonus in the apartment was a washing machine and a clothes line. If back in Florence we would definitely rent again. Thank you Antoinio.

ZANOBI APARTMENT
I have been staying in the Courtyard apartment for a month and it has been one of the best experiences ever. Kind, intelligent, multilingual people with taste and kindness to spare. The apartment silent and cool because of its internal location and wonderfully located among food take-outs and the market. Couldn't recommend any higher. Best value ever.

Such a wonderful place. We stayed for one week with our 2 children. Great for watching the cafes in the piazza. We would go to the macato centrale every day- such wonderful produce. We would recommend this place- and such wonderful hosts. We hope to come back again.

MASO APARTMENT
We spent 5 nights at the MASO apt. in May 2011 and would highly recommend it to anyone. It is spacious, beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, has everything needed for a stay including wireless internet, and best of all, the magnificent views from the double balcony....a full 180 view of Florence and the Duomo! The owner met us and showed us how everything worked, promptly came back when we had trouble with the lock and took care of it, and left us with lots of information about restaurants, local attractions, etc. It is in a neighborhood about 2 blocks from the river and 3 min. from the train station. There are restaurants, car rental offices, local groceries, bakeries, etc. within the block. There are also two major hotels on the street so there is lots of activity. We walked to all major attractions and loved our stay. This was a second visit to Florence and we loved having the room and the comfort of the apartment instead of a hotel room. There is even an elevator and air conditioning! We would highly recommend this apt. to any traveler...it looks even better than the pictures on the website.

Had a wonderful stay at Courtyard Apartments. The apartment is conveniently located to all main attractions as well as the SMN train station. Daniela was extremely helpful in setting up museum visits and giving information on the Florence area. Would definitely stay there again if we were to go back to Florence. It is worth noting that you do have to walk through the main house to get to the apartment but it is not at all uncomfortable, they are used to having guests and make you feel right at home.

PARADISE APARTMENT
We were extremely lucky to be the first guests in this newly and very tastefully refurbished apartment with many thoughtful touches. It is located within 3 minutes walk of the Uffizi and has panoramic rooftop views over much of Florence from its windows and terrace/ balcony. We were able to explore everything in Florence on foot with the ability to pop back regularly to the apartment for coffee and rests. Having previously stayed at some of the city's 5 star hotels, this was a much better holiday experience and we would do it again although we are sure we will have to join a long queue to book once word gets out about this gem.

Our family stayed at this apartment for almost 2 weeks, when our son was in college in Florence. It was wonderful! It was clean, and spacious and close to everything you would want to see during your visit! The owners were so kind.

Apartment Nido d'Amore is located on walking distance (10 - 20 minutes) from major Florentine monument - the Duomo, main station Santa Maria Novella, and from all major restaurants and galleries. Supermarket, bars, bakery and laundry is one step away from the apartment. The apartment itself is beautiful, clean and has everything needed for a comfortable stay in Florence. I've been there for five weeks and felt like home. Susanna is a wonderful lady and I use this opportunity to send her warm regards. Susanna, looking forward seeing you soon!

My school that I studied at in Florence, Italy placed me in this apartment and I really loved it. It was perfect and so homey. The landlord was very kind and helpful, my roommates and I enjoyed living there and he really made it feel like home. For one of the best experiences in Florence, I recommend this location. It's close to everything and very comfortable.

MARIA SOLE 2 APARTMENT
The Maria Sole 2 is delightful. I have been coming to Florence for 26 years the Oltrarno has become my preferred place to stay. The location of the flat is both central and very quiet. The flat itself is well thought out and organized. The WiFi worked perfectly and the heating bill was tiny. The sofa bed in the living room is certainly adequate for an adult. The bells of Sta Felicit? are wonderful. I can't wait to return!

The apartment was well appointed clean, comfortable and best of all came with the most wonderful host - you can't get that in a hotel!!

We have arrived home and are now back at work in Perth Australia. It was a rush getting organised to leave for the train to Venice and I felt badly about not having had the time to write in your guest book or thank you personally. We had such a wonderful time in Florence and were so very pleased to have had your lovely, warm hospitality to welcome our family. Thank you for the time you spent with us explaining important information and orienting us to the city. The apartment was ideal for us and we were delighted with it.

THE COURTYARD APARTMENT
We feel so fortunate to have found this wonderful oasis in Florence. My husband and 4 month old son stayed here for 10 very memorable days. Getting to know Daniela and her family is just as special as getting to know Florence. We were welcomed like family from the beginning and treated like very special guests. The courtyard apartment is located in the heart of Florence in a non-touristy neighborhood, where we quickly found "our" local supermarket and panini shop and felt at home. We were able to walk to all major attractions as well as the hidden gems of the city. Daniela has a genuine love for her city and is more than happy to give advice on restaurants, sights, cooking demonstrations, etc. The apartment and courtyard are simply lovely-newly renovated, spacious closet space, very comfortable bed, fully stocked kitchen, great shower, a lot of natural light, and very clean. We felt extremely safe and comfortable and found it very hard to say goodbye. We take with us many special memories, especially when Daniela's son knocked on our door with a bowl full of freshly roasted chestnuts - a delicious treat and just one example of many of the warmth and sincerity of this family.

The location of this apartment is soooo perfect. 2 mins. walk to the Ponte Vecchio, 4 mins. to Uffizi, 5 mins. to Duomo. We walked everywhere and had wonderful dinners closeby. Especially you should go to Antico Fattore restaurant, AWESOME. Thanks for the memories.

Barbara, I just want to thank you so much for making our stay in Florence so wonderful. We loved the Gastone apartment so much. The location was incredible. I wish we had been able to meet you, but Neil was an excellent host. He was at the apartment when we arrived, as we had no phone at that time to call him. It was such a relief to get there and he was waiting for us. The apartment was perfect for our family of 5 adults.It was a great place to come to at the end of a day. I will recommend this apartment to anyone I know who is going to Florence. Thank you again for everything. Nancy and Mike Weil and Family. August 14-21, 2010

My 2 teenage sons and I stayed for 3 nights in July 2010. Antonello made our stay. I had my wallet stolen in Rome so i had to deal with this when I arrived in Florence. Antonello went above and beyond to help me get a new credit card delivered and to pick up a wire transfer. His assistance saved me a huge amount of time and frustration. Thank you. He was also flexible with check-in and check-out times. The apartment is very centrally located, away from the tourist hordes, yet within walking distance to the Florence railway station and major sights. The apartment is spacious and fully equipped with a/c, washing machine, dishwasher, etc. The three of us had more than enough room to spread out and relax. Antonello makes this place special and he is the main reason I have no hesitation recommending others to stay at Route Apartment.

A lovely apartment - a quick walk to almost any site in Florence, but by far the best part about our stay is the friendly and helpful family that was our contact while here. We had two problems (Couldn't get the key to work and a fuse blew in the apartment) and both times the problem was taken care of very promptly and with kindness. Traveling can be stressful, but we were well taken care of in this rental property.

CONDOTTA APARTMENT
This apartment is tiny but centrally located with great a/c and quite affordable. Full stove but only a toaster oven for cooking, (and no microwave). Still- its location is prime- easy to get everywhere. Stairs are long and steep but easy enough to negotiate with our carry-on luggage. I wouldn't have called it bright new furniture, but still- we loved our stay. Easy to find and the owner met us there on the spot. I totally recommend this for budget stays. Tiny TV, (kids report only 4 stations-but we don't speak Italian so I don't see that it matters) No DVD player, but we found the one in Venice didn't play American DVDs so it didn't matter)

My husband and I, along with our 20-yr old daughter and friend, stayed in the Ruote apartment for 6 days in June 2010. I was a little bit nervous because I had never rented an apartment over the internet and it was a fantastic experience. Mr. Iannella was a terrific host; he was easy to contact by cell phone, met us exactly at the arranged time, and gave us helpful information about local parking, dining, and shops. The apartment was very nice; clean, spacious, and had lots of nice amenties, including good air conditioning, washing machine, and dishwasher. The beds were comfortable, even the sleeper sofa in the living room. The location was great; we walked everywhere easily - Accademia, Uffidzi, Duomo, Pitti palace. We called a cab one evening for transportation for dinner at Villa San Michelle in Fiesole - the cab knew the apt location, arrived in just a few minutes, and easily brought us home again. This was our first trip to Florence and we will absolutely return to the Ruote apt on our next trip. Thanks for everything Antonello!

CASTELLANI APARTMENT
If you want to visit Florence to see the many galleries and churches in this fascinating town then you would be hard pushed to find a two person (plus 1--2 on the sofa-bed) apartment better situated than this one. It is centrally located (across the street is the Uffizi gallery with the Ponte Vecchio less than 5 minutes walk away) has plenty of space and is well appointed with all mod cons. Round the corner is the Via dei negri which has corner stores for all your everyday needs and caffe bars every few yards for those essential shots of coffee. I really enjoyed my stay in apt De Castellani.

We stayed in the Garden Zenobi apartment for a week and loved it. The interior is lovely. It was nice having the option of having coffee and eating breakfast there every morning and cooking dinner if we wanted to. It is very close to everything, close enough that if we were out shopping we could easily drop off our packages and go back out. I would recommend this apartment to anyone planning on visiting Florence.

PERSEO APARTMENT
Spent one week there June 19-26, 2010. Perseo apartment is fantastic in all regards!. Wonderful week to be in Florence - many events - most outside the front window of the apartment. The Piazza Della Signore is a happening place (until about 1 AM each day). If you want to be in the middle of everything in Florence old town - this is the place for you. Spacious for 8, ample room to meet together and talk, eat or share daily adventures. Highly recommended!!! No parking so plan your car excursions for a same day pick up or drop off. There are lots where from 8PM to 8AM it is only 2.5 Euro. That may help.

MASO APARTMENT
We have just returned (8th June 2008) to Australia following our 5 week Italian holiday. I just wanted to let you know that we were very pleased with the Maso Apartment. We met Paola right on time and she was very helpful with a few local suggestions. We particularly liked the fact that it was a newer apartment and appreciated the modern facilities. What was presented on the web site (photos/description) was honest and accurate.The best feature is obviously the balcony and that fantastic view. Rear bedroom also with a view and very quiet for sleeping. Plenty of space. Great location close to station and bus (Sita) and easy walking to the sites. Plenty of shops for supplies and for those wanting to rent cars the 2 rental car services below is ideal. Compared to what we rented in Rome and Sorrento, Maso Apartment was very good value for money. We have already recommended the apartment (and you) to a couple of our friends who are planning their European trips.

We had a lovely week in Firenze despite weather being very hot. The Gastone apartment was clean and comfortable and Barbara was helpful. Enjoyed local markets and food shops, San Marco and Oltrarno areas. Walked Duomo and designer shops area at night time which was fun. Avoided the tourist high spots for next visit in the Springtime.

Ous study abroad experience has been the best time of our lives. The Gastone apartment has become our home away from home and we couldn't have asked for a better location. Thank you so much for everything this semester. We have become so used to the Italian lifestyle we don't want to leave so soon! We will all be back one day. Florence is an incredible city to live in.

We have enjoyed our 2 and half months here in Florence- The Candido apatment was nice to come back "to home" to after our travels to other cities in Italy. We especially will miss being able to walk to Mercato Centrale for wonderful fruts, vegetables, meats, chees and fish. Thanks Barbara for all of your great suggestions ad helpful information.

RUOTE APARTMENT
I was lucky enough to stay at Ruote apartment for a semester while I worked and studied abroad in Florence and I must say, from everyone I know, I got the best deal. This apartment is fabulous! As is Antonello. But the apartment really does have everything you could want. It is beautifully decorated, has plenty of open space to enjoy spending time with people and gives you place to spread out. The bathroom is amazing, it is quite large given it is in Italy and it is in the city center. It was amazing, truly. The neighborhood is great, not far at all from anything, but still offset enough that it is quiet and undisturbed by many tourists. Thank you Antonello for such a luxurious place to stay and being so wonderfully helpful. It was fantastic!

ROMA APARTMENT
We have been to Florence several times, and have stayed in different apartments each time-- but the Roma Aprtment has been our favourite. It has a convenient and central location, it's bright and airy and has a huge shower stall-- a nice change for someone 6'3" tall! The view of the Duomo from the bedroom is incredible. We look forward to staying at the Roma Aprtment again in the future!

We had a lovely stay in Antonello's apartment. It is centrally located, minutes from a local bakery where you will find the best schiacciata, park where kids can play and grocery store for wine and salumi. Antonello was very helpful and always at our disposal.

SERRISTORI APARTMENT
I stayed at this lovely apartment the last week of March 2010. It was a perfect location. We walked everywhere. The rooms were large and well furnished. I have one complaint and that is about the noise at the back of the apartment. The Pizza place and the Bar across the street at night were so loud that none of us could sleep in the back three bedrooms. I closed the window, used earplugs and finally used a sleeping pill and nothing worked. The people were partying until 5am OUTSIDE on Thursday night. The noise did not ruin our trip, nothing could but none of us would stay at this apartment again. It's a shame because other than the noise it was perfect.

ROMA APARTMENT
The Roma apartment was beautifully situated, adjacent to the Savoy Hotel in Piazza della Republica, and the area always felt vibrant yet safe. The owner, Irene, was extremely accommodating. The apartment was recently renovated, tastefully decorated, with every comfort, within reach of a variety of bars, restaurants and, of course, with every major attraction nearby. This was one of the best holidays we have had. Florence is a 'walkable' city and the location of the apartment was perfect. Can't wait to return.

COSTA APARTMENT
We enjoyed staying at the Costa apartment. It was just as it appeared in the photographs, very roomy with an up-to-date kitchen, bath and laundry room. The owners were very helpful and made time to bring us a key when we had locked ourselves out of the apartment. I would recommend this apartment for anyone staying in Florence, as long as you are prepared to walk up a steep street and up the stairs to the apartment. We had no difficulty doing this and enjoyed living for a week on the same street where Galileo lived.

LILIUM APARTMENT
Angela, I just wanted to let you know as I am packing up to leave that the Lilium apartment worked very well for me and was very comfortable. Being centrally located was a benefit for me as I was taking the 14C bus to Careggi everyday. It also provided me easy access to all the museums and sites of Florence. I was able to get some shopping done, both at the retail stores and with the street vendors. I will mention to my friends and aquaintances that wish to come to Florence about the apartment and give them your contact information. I just wanted to say 'thank you' and I hope the arrangements worked for you as well. I will leave the keys on the table as you requested. I did change the sheets on the bed once and I changed out the towels as well after the first week. Ciao, David

CLASSIC APARTMENT
The Classic apartment was fantastic, a great central location and very clean and tidy with all amenities - much better than a hotel. The only negative - we couldn't get the stove to work but there were plenty of good restaurants nearby so wasn't a huge problem. Cristina and family were very helpful in finding a nearby apartment at short notice for our friends which was great. Highly recommend Classic apartment for anyone looking for a good location in Florence.

RUOTE APARTMENT
We too recommend this wonderful apartment! It provided a great home base from which to explore Florence. It is close to a supermarket, and, better yet, the big public market - where you can get all ingredients for having great Italian food 'at home.' The apartment has wood floors and cotton/synthetic bedding, which made it very comfortable for someone with allergies to dust / wool / feathers. The air conditioning unit was a good standby for those few hot July days when the temperatures went through the roof. We highly recommend this apartment!

The apartment has wood / tile floors and synthetic bedding, which made the stay for someone allergic to dust/wool/feathers very comfortable. The airconditioning unit was a nice standby for those few days in July when the temperatures really went through the roof. We highly recommend this creative home away from home!

RUOTE APARTMENT
We stayed in this perfectly located apartment in Florence (Ruote apartment) with friends for one week over the summer, and had a wonderful time. The apartment is spacious for 5 people (1 sleeping couch in the living room; two bed rooms), and has all the amenities we needed: kitchen, washing machine, iron, and a wonderful bathroom. The interior feels a bit like an artist's/architects studio! One can walk to the city centre within 5-10 minutes, walking through a quiet, old part of the city. Stores and restaurants are close by, as are internet cafes and 'real' cafes. We recommend the apartment to any group (up to 3 couples), who would like have a great, quiet, private starting place for exploring the city. Our warmest thanks to Antonello for the apartment and flawless planning and the warm welcome!

RUOTE APARTMENT
We had a fantastic stay at the Ruote apartment in Florence. It was more than large enough for our party of four, with kitchen and laundry (which seemed to be a rare find in Europe). A stroll from the centre of town we walked everywhere in the city from the apartment. It was plenty warm enough (even for christmas) and is directly across the road from one of our favorite restaurants in all of Italy. We would strongly recommend Ruote apartment for its location, comfort and the hospitality of Antonello!

RUOTE APARTMENT
My family, husband and 3 children aged 11,9,5 thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Ruote apartment in Oct 2008. The photos don't do the apartment justice. It was very comfortable, clean and was stocked with every conceivable amenity. It was like being at home! The location ideal, close enought to walk to the sites but far enough so as to enjoy quiet streets. The supermarket a few doors down was ideal. I can not speak highly enough of the apartment or Antonello who was the perfect host and contactable on many occasions prior to our stay. Thank you so much Antonello. Mille Grazie!!

RUOTE APARTMENT
The Ruote apartment was in a great location in historical Florence. It is on a quiet street with little traffic. There were several restaurants within a block or two and a grocery store just doors away. Easy walking distance to the duomo and several piazzas. The apartment was very clean and well stocked. We have 4 kids and everyone had space to relax and separate after a long day of exploring Florence.

My family and I had a lovely stay for a week in the Ruote Apartment. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking equipment and basic supplies, and near to stores, making cooking easy and enjoyable. The two bedrooms are situated on opposite sides of the apartment, with the kitchen and sitting area in-between, which is good for privacy. All of Florence?s main attractions are within easy walking distance, and the apartment is situated in a quiet and safe area. I would certainly stay there again.

Very well equipped apartment. we found a number of little shops in the nearby area selling meats, pasta, vegetable, etc. so we didn't get to many of the local restaurants. Surprisingly quiet for the location- we were here for 2 days before we realized the apartment overlooked the main bust station!

ZANOBI APARTMENT
My husband and I just returned from a week-long stay in the Zanobi apartment. We found the apartment to be perfectly sized for a couple - there is a nice sized bedroom, bathroom and big closet. Everything is nice in the apartment and it is so nice to come "home" after a long day of siteseeing. It was especially nice to have the owner, Barbara, next door in the building. You feel more comfortable just knowing she is nearby and she can help with minor difficulties like getting a cab at 5:45 am (like us). The apartment is also in the perfect location for day-trips to/from the train station. Especially nice if you are arriving late at night from Cinque Terre like we did. The area is safe but very quiet after midnight which can make it feel a little isolated. My only critique would be to make sure you bring a travel clock/alarm clock because there is not one in the apartment. ENJOY YOUR TIME IN FLORECE!

RUOTE APARTMENT
Though the pictures of it are beautiful, the Ruote Apartment is even better in person! The location is ideal, in a tranquil neighborhood (but with quite a few good restaurants) that is easy walking distance to everything you want to see in Florence. We traveled with our 12 month old, and were happily surprised how perfect it was, even with a baby. We even asked if the crib was new, it was in such great shape.

The Ruote has been a great apartment for our group: two couples and a baby. Antonello provided a crib and hiigh chair for us, which was wonderful to have. There was plenty of room for us and the apartment was well-stocked with dishes, linens and appliances. We also appreciated that the single beds could be pushed together to make doubles. The location made it easy to get around and it was never noisy.

Barbara was so professional and helpful throughout the booking process, and made us feel so welcome although we arrived at 2a.m.!

SANTA CROCE APARTMENT
My husband and I have just returned to Canada from a 3 week vacation in Florence. We stayed in the Santa Croce apartment and it was just lovely. I highly recommend this apartment as it was clean, centrally located, character filled and very convenient. All major attractions were within 5 minute stroll and the Santa Maria Novella train station allowed for day trips to Venice, Milan, Rome and the surrounding Tuscan countryside. The local restaurants, market and Vivoli gelato is some of the best Italy has to offer.

LILIUM APARTMENT
My wife and I just completed a wonderful stay in Florence. We stayed at the Lilium apartment. We met Angela and her husband right on schedule and they welcomed us with a lovely gift basket and a tour of their apartment. The apartment is perfect for 2 people--a nice kitchen and living area, a clean and updated bathroom, a washer/dryer so you can pack light and other appliances, and a nice bedroom. The apartment was clean and tidy throughout. It was also perfectly located. We were able to walk to all the major sites on both the north and south sides of the Arno within minutes. Restaurants, markets, taxi stands, tour meeting points, and shopping were all within a few minutes as well. Angela was a pleasure to work with and we will definitely consider returning to Lilium when we return to Florence. If you're planning a trip to Florence, we hope your stay will be as wonderful as ours was.

ANTONINO APARTMENT
The Antonino apartment was AMAZING. After traveling on a hotel train the previous night, we were excited to walk into an apartment that had more than what we needed. The apartment was HUGE. We were so thankful to have the portable air conditioner in the room. We would have been sweating without it. The bathroom was huge! and the shower was big as well (which we were happy about because the one in Paris was tiny). The bedroom was big and airy. We loved having a kitchen where we could cook dinner, and having a fridge/freezer was wonderful because we could freeze our water overnight. That way we could have extra cold water for our tour in Florence. It's aobut a 2 minute walk (literally) to the Santa Maria Novella train station, a 5 minute walk to Il Duomo, and 10-15 minute walk to Ponte Vecchio, Ufizzi Gallery, and Boboli Gardens. 10 minute walk to Academia Gallery to see the David. We couldn't have picked a better apartment to stay at. Thank you Francesco!!

SANTA CROCE APARTMENT
Had a wonderful stay in the Santa Croce apartment. The terrace is very spacious and is a pleasure to sit out on in the mornings and evenings. It has a retractable awning which comes in useful. The only thing I'd mention is the stairs. They are very steep, however the apartment is worth it. Very centrally located with taxi rank in the piazza at the bottom of the street.

TERRACE APARTMENT
We enjoyed our week at the Terrace apartment very much. The location was great and the apartment was lovely and well-equipped. The neighborhood is quiet and not in the heart of the touristy crush, but still very close to everything a visitor would want to see. There's a supermarket practically across the street and a playground not too far away, so this apartment works well for a family that is cooking at home and wants easy access to green spaces for kids to run around. My daughter especially loved the nearby Rose Garden and the pond filled with turtles.

RUOTE APARTMENT
The Ruote apartment was a great place to stay during our trip to Florence. We brought our 2 year old and sister and there was plenty of room for everyone. The apartment is within a block of a grocery store, pizza shop, cafe, fruit vendor, and vegetarian restaurant. This made it easy to eat in or go out. It is a short 15 minute walk to the city center but away from all the traffic and noise. It was a great place to stay with kids!

EROS APARTMENT
I can't give enough wonderful comments about this apartment and Cristina and husband. We were booked into the smaller Eros apartment but we had another travelling companion and were put into the larger Zeus apartment . The apartment faced Via Cavour a balcony and corner windows in the bedroom. Everything brand new, Cristina must be an interior designer! Great beds, clean crisp linens. Complimentary bottle of wine, croissants, etc an unexpected delight. We toured all three apartments and I would love to stay in all of them! All very elegant and true to expectations. I felt like royalty!Great location, 5 minute walk to Duomo, central to all sights, markets across the street and around the corner. An internet stop on the ground floor with a very congenial owner. Good luck and many blessings to Cristina and her hubby in this new venture. All their hard work will pay off and they truly have bought joy to travellers! I will be back and anyone I know who goes to Florence will be staying in your great apartments.

ZANOBI APARTMENT
Myself, my mother and my baby (3 months) stayed in the Zanobi apartment for 5 days in mid Jan 08. The apartment was great. I slept with the baby in the bedroom (Barbara provided a cot free of charge!), and my mother slept in the lounge. The lounge room couch becomes a single bed which is really really comfortable. Barbara was lovely and I would definitely recommend this apartment to others. One extra plus is the numerous guide books and tourist info available which helps you enjoy Florence just that bit more.

BRUNELLESCHI APARTMENT
My partner and I stayed in Brunelleschi apartment for two weeks over Christmas and New Year, and found it ideal. It's extremely comfortable, has every amenity, and is in a really lovely part of Florence, the Oltrarno 'artisan' area, which has a character all of its own while still being a stone's throw from the Ponte Vecchio and the rest of Florence's numerous attractions. The only thing I'd mention is that if you are not fit, or find stairs a problem, this apartment might not be for you as it's seven flights up. Apart from that, it's great!

Zanobi apartment. An ideally located apartment within walking distance of many places of interest and handy too for public transport. We were able to eat well locally every evening - a big bonus. Barbara's information was really helpful, and just in case you don't take it all in it is written down in the apartment - locations of supermarkets, restaurants, and useful phone numbers etc. The apartment is comfortable and well equipped.

RUOTE APARTMENT
We loved the Ruote apartment and would stay here again! Our plane was delayed but the owner met us there when we arrived late and was very helpful and hospitable. He provided us with a map of Florence, and a bottle of nice Chianti upon our arrival. The apartment was well stocked with many tourist books, kitchen supplies, bedding, and towels. The apartment itself was beautiful - it is clear that the owners have taken great pride in designing and decorating the place. It was also spotlessly clean. The location is perfect - you are within easy walking distance to nearly all of Florence's main tourist spots and many great restaurants. We walked everywhere! This apartment also welcomed our three children - which was great. Thanks for a fantastic experience!

RUOTE APARTMENT
This was our first visit to Florence and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The Ruote apartment was in a good location; close enough to the centre to walk in, yet in a quiet area. Inside, it was roomy and beautifully furnished. We would recommend it for a short or longer stay.

RUOTE APARTMENT
Ciao Antonello! We had a fabulous month in Florence and thoroughly enjoyed the Ruote apartment and the neighborhood (we ate at the vegetarian restaurant down the street on several occasions!). Compared to our friends, our apartment was the best one!

MASO APARTMENT
Maso apartment. We could not have chosen a better apartment. Paola was very helpful and a charming hostess. The balcony was the highlight with its absolutely stunning view, a wonderful place to come home to after a busy day. From sunrise to sunset we never tired of the ever changing light over Florence. The facilities in the apartment were excellent and we look forward to a return visit.

The Zanobi is a very good apartment. It is nice, very clean and has everything you need. The air conditioning is working well, the building is safe and from there you can reach by foot every point of interest in Florence. It is close to the indoor market and a supermarket and the train/auto station.There is also a park nearby for those coming with kids. I stayed there 10 days toghether with my husband and 6 yrs old daughter. Mrs. Barbara is nice, helpful and a serious person.

COSTA APARTMENT
We spent 12 nights in the Costa apartment and we absolutely loved it there. Nothing was missing and it was very nice to be in this large one room apartment (bathroom and utility room are of course separate) with the gorgeous florentine "cotto" floor , the stone wall, the beamed ceiling and the very well equipped kitchen. The bathroom is very beautiful, too. For some people the 5 minute walk uphill to get to the house might be a little much but it was no problem for us. The Costa San Giorgio is an amazing example of a real ancient Florentine street and the house is within walking distance from the Ponte Vecchio, Via Giucciardini, Palazzo Pitto, the Boboli Garden, the Natural History Museum "La Specola" and the whole historic centre in general. At the end of Via Guicciardini (Ponte Vecchio side) there is a very good baker's shop which also sells good Pizza. Several Trattorie and Ristoranti are in the area. Thanks to Barbara, Neil and David, the very nice (and lucky) owner!!

PIATTELLINA APARTMENT
My sister and I stayed at the Piattellina apartment from May 23 - May 31, 2007 and loved it. We always felt safe in the area and the apartment. The apartment is well appointed and has beautiful architectual details. The outside garden area has a wall of Jasmine providing not only a beautiful back drop, but a delightful sweet smell that greets you each time you enter the apartment. Now every time I smell Jasmine I will think of Florence! The apartment is located steps away from the Brancacci chapel and Piazza Del Carmine, and is within walking distance of all the sites of Florence. Call and Internet centers and the market are close by. I highly recommend this apartment and look forward to coming back! Thanks Barbara!

Barbara, Just wanted to let you know that our family had a wonderful time in Florence, due in large part to the wonderful Gastone apartment. The children loved having their own room and the balcony was just great. Thank you also for use of your computer, what an unexpected treat. What we most appreciated was your warm welcome and the time you took to get us all settled in. Thank you again for making our trip to Florence a special one. Sincerely, Matthew Beer

ANTONINO APARTMENT
I was so happy to find the Antonino apartment. It was so convinent as the San Lorenzo Market was right outside our door and a two minute walk to the Duomo. Laura and Franceso were so friendly and helpful with our stay. The apartment was perfect and much better than a hotel as you felt like a local. The apartment really help make our experience in Italy more memorable and look forward to our next visit

BRUNELLESCHI APARTMENT
The Brunelleschi apartment was wonderful--convenient, well-decorated, comfortable and affordable. A little noisy in the evenings (college students gathered at San Spirito Church) right behind the apartment but that was only a small drawback. Helpful orientation and love welcome basket provided by the owners upon arrival. You won't be disappointed!

The Zanobi apartment was a great value for a stay in Florence. The owners were very accommodating and helpful with neighborhood restaurants, etc. From there you can walk to the station--actually, to anywhere in the city. We would stay there again.

ZANOBI APARTMENT
The Zanobi apartment is well-appointed and centrally located for enjoying the very best of Florence. You're just steps away from the Central Market, major attractions and the best coffee in the world. Heed Barbara's kind restaurant recommendations, she knows her food. A delightful experience!
