Charming apartment - great location!
"What a beautiful apartment - immaculate, well appointed, and in our opinion, the best location in the city. We definitely preferred staying in the Oltrarno area of Florence - the other side of the river, near the Pitti Palace, but very close to the Ponte Vecchio and a short 10 minute stroll to the historic center. Loads of wonderful restaurants, cafes, and shops (think leather!) but quieter and less touristy than the center - with lower prices as well. Our lovely hostess, Katerina, met us on arrival and gave us a lot of great information and a map of tourist spots and restaurants. From the moment of our first inquiry about the rental until check-out, all details were handled very promptly and very professionally. FYI - a few steps from the apt. at the end of Via Toscanella (the street where the apt. is located) at the corner of Borgo San Jacopo is a wonderful wine shop - Enoteca Obsequium. Every evening starting at 6pm, you can enjoy a glass of wine and a selection of their wonderful Tuscan tapas for only 7 Euros per person - that was our dinner one night. We hope to return to Florence at some point in the future and we will definitely stay at this lovely apt. again."

"We have had several long-term stays here and have thoroughly enjoyed the house and the neighborhood. The house is lovely - comfortable, well-maintained and well-equipped. On the warm days we particularly have enjoyed the roof-top terrace for lunch, aperitivi, and dinner. The area around Piazza Tasso feels like the real Florence -- lively during the day and very quiet in the evening, with many nearby caf'es and restaurants. We particularly enjoyed be able to easily walk everywhere--Piazza Santo Spirito is ten minutes away, and the Duomo is 25 minutes by foot, via many interesting routes -- so there is always something new to discover on the way! Excellent bus transportation for trips within Florence or to other Tuscan towns (e.g., Greve-in-Chianti, Siena) is a two minute walk from the house. This has become our home-away-from-home in Florence and we look forward to our return."

"This was our second trip to Florence as arranged by the Italy Perfect staff. As before we rented the Solare apartment thru Italy Perfect because of the location - quieter, without sacrificing access to local amenities. The apartment is very comfortable and well maintained.
We enjoyed walking all over the city, including a trek from Fiesole back down into Florence. As before, everywhere we went we were welcomed.
I am sure that our next trip to Florence will come sooner next time around."
