A Great Florence Experience
"We stayed only 3 nights but I wish we could have stayed longer. The apartment was the perfect Florence experience, on the other side of the Arno surrounded by locals rather than tourists. The apartment is in an old building, up a couple of flights of stairs (no elevator) which makes you feel like a true Florentine (plus it helped to work off all the gelato that we ate everyday!). You can walk everywhere from the apartment: to Piazzale Michelangelo, Ponte Vecchio, the Duomo, the Accademia, etc. If you are not cooking in, there is a "bar" across the street and another a couple of doors down for morning coffee and pastry and good restaurants near by. The apartment was the perfect size for the 4 of us with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a comfortable living room and cute little kitchen. In the afternoon, from the living room window you could hear the locals in the building talking as they prepared lunch. The owner, George, is very nice and was easy to work with by email as we were making arrangements as well as when we arrived. He checked in with us during our stay to make sure that everything was O.K. I would rent the apartment again on our next visit."

"We were very satisfied with the apartment. It is just a minute walk to the Uffizi Gallery and just steps from the Ponte Vecchio. This was important to us during the heat of summer. Despite the business at street level, the apartment is quiet and restful. The view of the Vasari Corridor is wonderful. Marusca provided us with ample information about restaurants, markets, and nearby attractions. If I return to Florence, I would gladly stay here again."

"Our group of three academics had an ambitious goal- to see seven European cities in three weeks. Of all our apartment accommodations from London to Rome
This apartment " Strozzi" in Florence was the best. We spent four days in the lap of luxury-Well appointed, spotlessly clean, safe and located steps from the Uffizi, river Arno and the Accademia!
The owners were gracious, genuine and available. Their recommendation of "La Spada" restaurant a block away was superb. Miki and Franco are the epitome of
hospitality. Lisa their booking agent is a consummate professional
Making your Florentine vacation a once in a life time experience you'll want to revisit time and time again!!!!"

"This is our second trip back to Florence and one of the reasons we wanted to return was to once again stay in this wonderful apartment. The location and the apartment bring you a truly magical experience. You are in the heart of Florence when you stay at Bardi, yet high enough from the busy streets below to be undisturbed. The apartment itself has everything a couple could require. We spent a week there but could quite happily have spent a month. The attention to detail goes well beyond anywhere else we stayed during our two months in Italy and remains our favourite. Our host Giuliani was very helpful and he was always a phone call away if we needed anything. To sum up, if you're coming to Florence and you want somewhere that feels like home, this is your apartment. Writing this review has caused my wife to get 'homesick' for Bardi. That's saying something!"
