Overlooking the Arno river and Oltrarno area, enjoy memorable views and a location right in the heart of the historic center.
The apartment is located in the most central historic center location. You can be at the entrance to the Uffizi Gallery in just two minutes, stroll the Ponte Vecchio at your doorstep. Enjoy the convenience of a location that is second to none when it comes to views and acessibility to the sites.
The apartment building is on tiny Piazza del Pesce at the foot of the Ponte Vecchio bridge. This area was heavily damaged during World War II, and while the Ponte Vecchio was spared, many of the buildings on either side of the bridge, including several 14th century houses that were on this piazza facing the loggia to the Uffizi along the Arno river, were destroyed. Post-war this area was completely rebuilt, including the building within which the Memoria apartment is located. So what the building lacks in Renaissance architectural embellishments, it makes up for in views, light and modern conveniences which are often not found in many of Florence's historic buildings, where refurbishment is limited by ancient structures.
Sunlight streams through the completely unobstructed windows and views from the living room, dining room and both bedrooms. The apartment is roomy and very comfortable, furnished to a very high standard. The living room is large and graciously appointed with two sofas and three comfortable armchairs. Parquet floors throughout the living room and dining room/study. Wall-to-wall terrace doors are southward facing and open out onto a small terrace. The terrace is delightful for taking in the stunning views of the Arno and Oltrarno views. It is furnished with a table and two chairs. There is a TV with satellite in the living room.
Off the living room is a combination dining room/study with a large window with stunning views and. An expandable dining table can seat up to 12 people. A double size sofa bed in this room can sleep two children or one adult. There is also a small desk in this room, a handy workspace if needed.
The master bedroom has a dual king size bed which can be prepared together or individually as two twin beds, wall-to-wall closet with lots of storage space and polished terrazzo floors. The second bedroom has two twin beds (not combinable), also with ample closet space and hardwood floors.
Off the hallway are two bathrooms. One with toilet, sink, shower. The other with bathtub with shower sprayer attachment, toilet, sink, bidet.
There is air conditioning in the living room, dining room, both bedrooms and the kitchen. Because the apartment gets full afternoon sun, it can get quite warm in the height of the summer season, when A/C is essential. There are screens on the bedroom windows.
The kitchen is fully equipped and has a large refrigerator, separate freezer, dishwasher, microwave, 5-burner gas stove, electric oven, Italian espresso pot and drip coffee maker, toaster. The laundry room has a washer, dryer and sink.

Great time right over the Ponte VecchioGuest comment entered by manager
Great time right over the Ponte Vecchio
The apartment was well appointed, and extremely well situated in the middle of Florence. We loved our time and would definitely rent from Italy Perfect again!

Better Than Advertised
The apartment was spectacular – better than we had hoped. Great location, elegant (but not over the top) décor, functional kitchen, private bedrooms and excellent air conditioning. My wife and I were travelling with our two children (15 & 12) and were looking for an apartment with a central location and a patio/porch. Memoria was more than we had hoped it would be. Location allowed children to come and go and gave them a real sense of independence. Wonderful restaurants and shopping all around – even great gelato just outside the front door! I cannot recommend this apartment any more strongly – Fantastic for all!!!

Our apartment was in so many ways fantastic
Our apartment in Florence was in so many ways fantastic.the actual apartment was very spacious with very nice furnishings. The fotos did not do it justice.second the location could not be any better. Right at the foot of the pontevecchio bridge with views indescribable. This would be a great apartment for a family who were taking children to Italy. From Lisa whose company Italy perfect was there when we had a small plumbing issue and provided a book for a resource for Florence to our Italian liaison Francesca who gave us great advise about restaurants to fixing our Internet made us very comfortable living in Firenze which we did the entire month of September. We have travelled extensively but this was our first time renting an apartment but won't be our last.

Magnificent view and fantastic location!
The apartment was exactly 'as advertised'. Spacious (could easily accomodate a group of 6) and well decorated. The terrace was wonderful. A nice place for coffee in the morning or a drink in the evening. Kitchen was very well equipped. The apartment is walking distance from the major sites which is a huge asset. The greeter was absolutely fantastic. She not only checked us in the apartment but she was helpful throughout our stay with everything. Great restaurant just across the bridge - 4Leone.

An apartment with a view
This apartment is centrally located in Florence overlooking the Ponte Vecchio and the Vasari coridor. Just over the bridge is an excellent grocery store . This apartment gives you easy access to the Oltrarno area. A favorite pizzaria (pizzaria giusti) and gelateria (ponte s. trinita) are in this area. The apartment was very comfortable and offers a memorable view of the Arno. Our greeter was attentive and responsive. At one point one of the toilets stopped flushing and she quickly rectified the problem. I would recommend this appartment to a friend.

Incredibly well located, nice and clean
We thoroughly enjoyed the apartment. Everything was as it should be. We were greeted on time and warmly. The apartment was incredibly well located, nice and clean. The AC and internet worked perfectly and the windows shut out any street noise. The pictures do not adequately reflect the apartment. it is nicer and sunnier then depicted. I can't recommend it any higher.

Beautiful ApartmentGuest comment entered by manager
We stayed in the Memoria the last week of May and loved it. It is even more beautiful than the pictures show. The kitchen is nice and much bigger than most Italian kitchens. The balcony and view of the Arno is unbelievable. The only suggestion I have is adding a screen door to the balcony because the mosquitos were out. Overall it is a wonderful apartment that I hope we can return to again.

Spectacular Apartment on the ArnoGuest comment entered by manager
Spectacular Apartment on the Arno
This was by far the best accommodations in all of Florence. The Memoria apartment was at the foot of the Ponte Vecchio. Located on the fourh floor, it has panoramic views of the Arno River, the Ponte Vecchio and the Boboli Gardens. We were able to visit many areas on foot and took a few day trips to Siena and Lucca. The train station was a 10 minute walk and much easier than renting a car. Italy Perfect was excellent and a pleasure to work with. Thank you for a wonderful vacation.

Perfect ApartmentGuest comment entered by manager
This apartment really helped make our visit to Florence absolutely perfect. It was quite large, well equipped and simply but very elegantly furnished; the key however, was the location. Located right on the Ponte Vecchio, it affords a visitor the comfort of roaming the streets of Florence and knowing you could never possibly not figure out how to get home. Everything from Memoria is so incredibly convenient and accessible, it makes this walking city even more enticing and enjoyable. We loved every moment outside, but were always thrilled to come back to the comfort (and the amazing terrace with incredible view) of our lovely home away from home. The staff at ItalyPerfect really outdid themselves, and I am already looking forward to returning to Memoria soon. Pat, Lisa and their contact Francesca are all thoughtful and thorough, and my confidence in them was well-rewarded with one of the best vacations of my life!

An absolutely perfect location
We spent one week at Memoria and thought it was wonderful. We have 3 older teenagers and there was more than enough room for everyone. The apartment was very well appointed, and had all the staples and kitchen implements we needed. It provided a wonderful opportunity to have a lighter breakfast and lunch if we wanted. All appliances were excellent, the kids loved the high speed internet, and in August, the air conditioning was a welcome feature. It was a perfect location for everything--restaurants, night life, Uffizi Gallery, Pitti Palace and all the Florence attractions. We frequented the local grocery store daily and picked up great fruits and breads. An absolutely perfect location and superior accommodation.
