Why Janine Dickinson chose San Giovanni
My dear friend Josie & I bought this apartment in 2000 because we fell in love with Florence over many years & finally realised our dream to live a Florentine life. Over this time we have been thrilled to share the feeling of being a Florentine with our guests, who come back time & again. Some of our guests come every year & many truly feel it is theirs too.
What makes this Apartment unique
Some of the things I love most about the apartment are: the sense of belonging - when the tourists go home at night the city is yours. I love being able to put my head out the bedroom window, look to the right & see Cosimo de Medici on his great charger, in Piazza della Signoria. I love Daniela's glorious fruit shop right at our door.

A little dark but cozy. Loved the antiques and beautiful 20’ ceilings.
Thanks Frances. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay. All the best. Jan
Loved it! Everything as advertised.
Thanks Bill. I am here now. I was very touched by your lovely note in the visitor's book. It gives me so much pleasure to hear when our guests leave Convivio feeling as if the time here has been special. I hope you will treasure the memories of Florence and that you might be back one day. All the very best. Jan
Amazing location and fabulous service!!
This is our second time staying here and it was fantastic!!! The check in process was a little trickier this time because I speak very little Italian but Paolo called Rosemary and everything went well! The apartment is great and is right in the middle of where you would want to be in Florence!
We hope to return again soon. Thank you Jan, Rosemary, and Paolo for everything!!!
Thanks Mary. It was lovely to have you again - sorry about the rain but I don't think there was anywhere much that wasn't being deluged! I hope you have a very happy time over Christmas and new year I will look forward to having you back again in 2020. All the best
An amazing Florence Experience
Everything about this property was special- the location, the history and easy walking access to Florence sites. Janine offered excellent detailed information about the property and area attractions.
Thanks Donna. I'm so glad you had a wonderful time. And thanks for doing the review too. It was lovely being in touch with you and I know that you will always have many special memories of your time in Florence. All the best
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was exactly as described and our host thought of everything. Great location, right between Piazza della Duomo and Piazzo della Signoria made it easy to get to many locations, yet it was away from the throngs on the squares. Thanks for a lovely home away from home.
Thanks so much Nancy. I really appreciate your review. We have had the apartment for twenty years, and I still get excited when I go out and the door shuts behind me and I am looking straight into Piazza Signoria! I hope you have lots of wonderful memories of your visit. Jan
A private refuge in the heart of Florence
This large comfortable apartment sits just steps from all of the major sights. It was so nice to have a quiet place to unwind or take a siesta before heading out again to take in more of this beautiful city. It’s so close to everything that we could pop in and out between sights! We especially loved listening to opera or classical music, sipping wine, and taking in the rich history of the apartment. The ceilings are amazing! Besides being a quick walk to the Uffizi, the Duomo, the Ponte Vecchio, etc,
there is a wonderful fruit stand, groceries, and really great restaurants right there. We loved the apartment and highly recommend. Oh! It has an awesome king size bed. That’s a rare find in Italy!
Thanks so much for the lovely review, Molly. And for taking the time to write it. It was lovely to have you. I too love the fact that I can come and go as often as I like during the day. It's great not having to be out all day, being able to pop in at home for lunch and a rest and a read, and then easily move on to the next outing. By the way, though the ceiling is not as old as the building (800 years) , it is still 600 years old & I love it too. Hope you will be back one day. Jan.
Gorgeous medieval surroundings. The Uffizi is only 50m away. Gallleries, museums, cafes, restaurants & bars. No traffic.
