"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."
