Relais Borgo Pinti comprises two mansard roofed flats in the heart of Florence. List N° 165586 and list N° 92298.
The apartments are on the same floor, just across a small hall.
Pinti 2 (listing 165586, is 110 sq. meters and has accommodations for4/ 6 people.
Borgo Pinti is a quiet street partially closed to the traffic.
The Relais is located where Borgo Pinti crosses Via dei Pilastri and Via Alfani. It is a few minutes walk from all important sights and monuments, and some blocks from S.Ambrogio market and from the famous restaurants La Giostra and Il Cibreo.
The apartments are on the second and top floor. There is no elevator, but the climb is worth it. The steps are low and manageable.
Pinti 2 has two double bedrooms, 1 open loft with two twins, 1 wonderful bathroom with shower, another bathroom only with W.C. and sink. The kitchen is a separate room, spacious, fully equipped and has a dining table for six.
The two bedrooms have a queen size bed.
In the living room two comfortable white sofas and a fireplace.
There is a small, quiet and sunny patio where you can enjoy a drink.

Something about the within home cooking class:
Here are some informations about how a cooking class usually works: I arrive at 8:30 am to go shopping together at the fresh food market in S. Ambrogio (the market is open only in the morning), then we go immediately back to the apartment to cook for lunch. The cooking class last untill 12:30 - 1:00 pm. The cost of the cooking class is 250 euros (in total and not for each person) and at the market you buy the ingredients we need.
Usually the menu consists in three different dishes: an appetizer; a main course and a dessert.
I can suggest a typical Tuscan menu such as: Crostini di fegatini (crostini with chicken liver paté); Crespelle alla fiorentina (Spinach and Ricotta filled crepes); Tiramisù

VRBO Bear stayed here:
I cannot say enough about how thoughtful our host, Claudia, and her staff were. When we arrived, we were greeted with a welcome basket of treats. We were greeted with other surprises as well, but I won’t give away all of their secrets.
The layout of this apartment was more spacious than we had anticipated. It was decorated with festive, tasteful holiday fare (Christmas season), which was a nice touch. The apartment and each room seemed larger than the online pictures. The gem for us was the hidden, upstairs loft-style sunroom. We spent a lot of our down time there relaxing and talking about the day’s sights and adventures, as well as reading and doing some online activities. The loft was cozy, but still had plenty of space for us to relax and unwind.
During our stay, our hosts loaned us a cell phone to use for local calls. A Europe converter plus was available for our electronics to charge, so we didn’t have to bring or purchase a converter. The wi-fi connection in the apartment was strong.
The apartment is located exactly in the heart of everything that we wanted to experience in Florence. There is an excellent restaurant across the street, and a local mart literally right next door. This apartment was close to the shopping district, as well as several restaurants, bakeries, gelato shops and other eateries. Museums, water canals, and the awesome Il Duomo di Firenze were nearby, all within a 10-15 minute walk from the apartment. A low-fee credit union ATM was 3 minutes away, too, which was a huge value add for us. The train station was in walking distance, which allowed us to avoid taxi fees.
All in all, we completely enjoyed this stay. Our hosts could not have been more helpful -thank you so much!
