"We stayed in this apartment in early October and found it to be in a great location, secure, well equipped, very spacious. Lorenzo was very great to work with, spoke really good english which was very helpful. As mentioned, the apartment is very close to the Duomo so you hear the church bells at 7am, 7:30am and 8am, great if you are a morning person but probably not if you are not. Luckily we were morning people and used it as an alarm clock. We hope to visit Florence again soon."

"The Quercia apartment in Florence is well located to be convenient to all tourist attractions, yet off the beaten path. It is very well-appointed with nice linens, table service and kitchen tools. A welcome basket was waiting filled with everything we would need for the first 24 hours including coffee, wine, pasta, sauce and cookies. We enjoyed relaxing in the living room and eating our meals outside in the courtyard which was actually a little bigger than it looked in photographs.
We rented bicycles and rode outside the city a couple of times, which was fun. We loved having the interior courtyard to store the bikes in at night.
The surrounding area is a safe, friendly neighborhood. One night on the way back from dinner we came upon a party going on in the street. We stopped to listen to the music and before we knew it we were swept into the middle of the group and we were dancing with everyone else. Another night we happened on a trunk show at a local boutique and were invited in for wine and hors d'œuvres as models and impeccably dressed men and women milled about us.
We got to see all the tourist attractions but we also got to feel like locals. Perfection!
The bounty of suggestions for food, fun and travel tips in the ItalyPerfect information packet were really terrific. We will definitely use ItalyPerfect again and have recommended it to friends."

We recommend this type of Accommodations over any 4 Star Hotel!!
"We could not have been any more pleased (is thrilled to strong) with our amazing apartment in the heart of Santa Croce Florence! It was beautiful. Also comfortable and welcoming. The surroundings were lovely and we felt a part of the neighborhood. Quiet and safe. Our greeter could not have done more for us! Walked us to the grocery store and pointed out sites to visit. We were steps from the Santa Croce Piazza and the Arno River where we found excellent restaurants. Make a dinner reservation at Ristorante del Fagioli! The wait staff will guide you through a meal of wonderful steak, bread soups and pasta. Cappuccino and Gelato - say no more. Shopping - we were steps from small shops with fair prices on leather goods and other souvenirs. Visited the Italian Leather School (prices are very high but the quality is outstanding.) which is behind the Santa Croce Church. The school is free but is also part of the church tour. We were only a few blocks to the Uffizi Gallery and Accademia. The tour books are right; make reservations! Walk or take a city bus to any of the most congested areas of Florence then return home to peace and quiet! Take a city bus to Fiesole in the hills overlooking Florence. It's quite a hike up to the church but the view is spectacular. Also on the city bus line is a stop across the river on Viale Michelangelo for more great views of the city. We made a day trip by train to Pisa, visited the coastal town of Viaggio and then a final stop in Lucca and after a long day back to peace and quiet. What a wonderful experience and Italy Perfect is just that - Perfect. They gave us excellent guidance and provided valuable information before our trip on the "do's" and "don'ts". Follow their advise and you'll have an exceptional experience. We will definitely recommend Italy Perfect and use them again. Ciao e viaggi sicuri!"
