Great location with fantastic view!

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I stayed here with our significant others and enjoyed every minute of our stay! We traveled from Rome to Florence, and the apartment was a short distance from the train station by taxi. Emanuele met us at the apartment within 10 minutes of our arrival. He showed us all of the amenities and recommended some of his favorite restaurants, bars, and places to shop, which we took advantage of (all great recommendations). The apartment was exactly how it appeared to be in the images. We enjoyed wine and snacks on the roof top terrace, considering the cold weather, because how could you not take advantage of that view? All shops, museums, and major monuments were within walking distance. It was an overall great experience for our first stay in Florence. We would definitely recommend to anyone traveling to the area!

Old world elegance!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautifully furnished and tasteful, honoring the inherent beauty of the style of the building. The kitchen, bedrooms and bathroom are all equipped with state-of-the-art conveniences. Cristina and Emmanuele were prompt to respond and very helpful. The view from the terrace is truly breathtaking with a view of city, and in particular, the duomo. We wouid stay there again in a heartbeat!

Lovely well maintained property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment, Emanuele greeted us at the door, carried our luggage up for us and gave great advice to local places! It was our 2nd visit to Florence as our younger daughter was also studying here for the semester, so we were fairly familiar with the sites to see while visiting but having this place for the week enabled our daughter to stay with us and we enjoyed the rooftop terrace for morning coffee and a glass of wine in the evening! The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room for the four of us to spend some quality time together!

Lots of room and a terrace!

  • 5 of 5

The location of the property was convenient to many of the sights. We enjoyed the terrace for morning coffee and evening wine! There is a grocery store just around the block. Cristina and her husband met us promptly at the property to show us the amentities as well as to recommend some sites to visit and places to eat. She recommended we visit Piazza Michelangelo at sunset...which we did! Amazing views! One odd requirement was the need to empty the trash at checkout. We of course complied, but it seems like this could be part of the cleaning service/fee. Regardless, we were very satisfied with our stay.

About Emanuele and Ylenia

My name is Emanuele.

I was born and raised in Florence.

I started working as a freelancer right after the high school, bringing forward my university studies.

You will meet me in Florence during the check in: I will give you the key of the apartment, a map of Florence and all the information you need on the apartment that you have rented and the city of Florence (supermarkets, taxi numbers, museums, restaurants, pubs, ice-cream shops, places for shopping etc.)

Ylenia, my co-worker, is an essential part of my team!

She was born and raised in Florence as well as me.

She graduated in “Economics and Management” and specialized in Science of Tourism.

She is available to solve any doubt or questions you might have from the booking to the check in/out.

We both love to travel around the world because we think that there is no better way to learn and increase our knowledge . This is the reason why we believe that contact with people from other realities is essential in order to understand the world in which we live.

We are very lucky people because we were both able to turn our passion into our profession.

We hope to meet you soon in Florence!

Why Emanuele and Ylenia chose Santa Croce

Why this property?

The answer is written in the property name: "THE VIEW" !

The flat has a lovely terrace with the view on one of the most important symbols of Florence: Brunelleschi's Dome!

The apartment has been completely refurbished in April 2016, I am sure that your stay will be amazing!
