Great location and stay

  • 5 of 5

This was my favorite rental of our holiday. The apartment is located so conveniently to the train station it made it perfect to get there. The instructions given were detailed and easy to follow. Our hostess gave us wonderful information about what to see in Florence including the best gelato shops and after sampling a few she was spot on on her recommendations. We also went to a couple restaurant suggestions and they didn't disappoint either. If we were to go to Florence again we would definitely see if this property was available again. Everything was there to make our stay comfortable.

Charming Apartment and So Helpful!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this charming apartment near the Mercato Centrale. We stayed here two years ago with our young son and liked it so much we came back! The kitchen, dining and living area is light and bright and offers a view of the Mercato Centrale and a hint of the Duomo! You can hear the bells of the Campanile every morning and evening! The bedrooms are very spacious and comfortable, and our 2.5 year old graduated into a twin bed on holiday! He was so excited! The apartment is an easy walk to the Piazza del Duomo, Medici Chapels and the Accademia. You're never too far from a gelateria or a grocery store!

To be honest, this is the standard by which we compare all other rentals on holiday!

I also want to express my deepest gratitude to Veronica! Not only did she meet us for our late check-in, but was helpful in the extreme when our flight was cancelled on our departure day. We were able to return to the apartment and stay an extra night without any worry. Further, Veronica assured us that should our second flight out of Florence be cancelled, that we could return again! Utterly gracious and so willing to make a difficult, stressful situation easy for us. Grazie mille!

Great location. We were met at the apartment and had all our questions answered. Apartment was clean and as represented.

Definitely worth the asked price. Wi-Fi worked well. Be ready to climb a few stairs.

Near the Central Market

  • 4 of 5

We were impressed with the welcome that property manager Veronica gave us, sharing ideas for restaurants, activities, places to see, etc. She was very accommodating of our schedule and did a lot to help us feel welcome, including calling to set up taxi rides for us.

The apartment has spacious bedrooms, and it was nice to have two bathrooms and access to a washing machine. The kitchen and dining room have basic amenities, and the place was very clean.

Being so close to the Central Market made finding an espresso and pastry for breakfast or buying food for a picnic quite easy. There are also several cafes within a couple of blocks. The street below the apartment was a bit noisy in the evenings with people or nearby concerts and in the mornings with deliveries and activities related to the Central Market.

The apartment's location within the city makes walking to most places, including the train and bus stations, quite easy. The stairs (as other travelers have noted) are narrow and many, but we handled them just fine.

Centrally located, clean, apt with great hosts

  • 4 of 5

Apartment is clean and centrally located and an easy 5 min walk from the train station and the Duomo.

Veronika's partner met us at the apartment, showed us around, and spent 30 minutes mapping out what to do and how to get around Florence, which was very helpful.

The apartment was perfect for my wife and I and our 10 and 13 year old children.

My only concerns would be the steps to the fourth floor for older people and the lack of AC on hot nights.

if those two items are not an issue for you then this apartment is for you!

Apartment in Florence

  • 5 of 5

We were so fortunate to be in this lovely apartment, which is very conveniently situated on the central area of Florence. The agent, Veronica, was incredibly helpful with ideas of where to eat, visit, etc. and she made us so welcome. The apartment is comfortable, well equipped and attractively decorated. We would love to stay here again and can highly recommend this accommodation.

This is a very central location so you can be back 'home' within a matter of minutes from most of the historic center sites. The neighborhood has many convenient shops, small supermarket, groceries, pizzeria, several restaurants, a pharmacy and a bakery with one block.

It's very close to all the major sites. Located near Piazza San Lorenzo, it's an easy walk to the Duomo, the train station, the Medici Chapels, Fortezza da Basso.

In Piazza San Lorenzo, one block further, stands the San Lorenzo Basilica, the first Florentine church. It was consecrated by Saint Ambrose in 393 and would be later be described as “The Medici family's church and mausoleum”. This exuberant square has for centuries been a mixture of sacred and profane: sacred is the superb church named after the patron saint of the Arte dei Fornai (the Bakers Guild), while profane is the colorful little market with its picturesque stands carrying such a variety of goods and thick formation of shops where one can buy just about anything.

The covered area of the Mercato Centrale nearby offers vast varieties of Italian food specialties, cheeses, hand made pasta, artisan olive oils and fresh fruits and vegetables.

Maybe, you'll be eating out at the many nearby excellent restaurants most days. However, the wonderful selection of fresh seasonal ingredients might tempt you to cook at home! So handy if you need a few last-minute items.

On August 10th, St. Lorenzo Day, the square becomes even livelier, as there are both solemn religious functions and street celebrations through popular initiatives.
