Great location to everything.

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is located on the top street in Florence. Just 2 blocks from the Ponte Vecchio and 3 minutes to the Uffitzi museum. The apartment had great air conditioning for the hot summer months. There’s a washer and a lift, which is quite rare in most Florence buildings. The one negative was the bed. It’s small (only a full size bed), and quite hard. We found it to be very uncomfortable. Veronica is the apartment manager. She’s nice, but not quick to respond to questions. Overall, I’d select this apartment based on the fabulous location, a/c, and the lift.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located right at the heart of the city. Easily accessible and clean. If you happen to arrive by car, there are plenty of places to park on the other side of the river. We used Garage Lungarno, which is the closest. If we visit Florence again, would definitely stay at this apartment again.

Great place in the heart of things!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to walk out the door and be in the center of it all, this apartment is for you. The Ponte Vecchio Bridge, the Uffizzi, the Duomo, and many of the attractions are only a short stroll from here. The apartment is modern and comfortable, perfect for a couple. The wifi is strong. The air conditioning and the elevator is a luxury. Our host, Barbara, was wonderful and made meeting her simple and easy. This is a great place. All you want from Florence is there.

Great apartment, great location

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in Florence. We were in the apartment for 10 days and everything worked out great. The apartment is only steps away from Ponte Vecchio and none of the sights in central Florence are more than a 15 min walk away. Only two minor issues - NOISE - one Friday night (happened to be Good Friday) there was loud shouting, laughing and some singing from the street below that kept on till 4:00AM. Only happened that one night - all other nights were quiet. BED - the full size bed is quite firm. I would say it’s hard. Otherwise the unit is fully equipped, modern inside and comfortable. There is a lift (unit is on the 6th and top floor.
