  • Florence as beautiful as before

    "After our holiday here last year there was still more to be seen and favourite places to see again - so we returned this April for another great 10 days. Our hosts, Miki and Franco, just as before gave us a warm welcome to their comfortable and very well appointed apartment and were so helpful, it was like coming back home. For food shopping the Mercato Centrale is very convenient to the apartment. On the ground floor we recommend the fish and chips shop for something completely different, but get there early if you want to eat there as there are only a few seats along the counter. Also look out for the small shop selling their own delicious vintage olive oils, cheeses and excellent Tuscan wines (Agriturismo dall'Annita al Poggio all Lame) - it's opposite the fresh pasta stall. There's a great antiques and collectables market near Piazza Santa Croce by the Sant'Ambrogio produce market and we found several vintage shops dotted around the city selling period clothes and scarves. There are of course so many wonderful places to eat; Marione next door to the apartment has an excellent Tuscan menu and a great atmosphere and La Spada just up the road serves first class Tuscan take-aways from the little door round the side. And we found a new organic gelato opposite the Pitti Palace. We spent spent several lazy late afternoon hours sitting outside the bar on the north side of the Ponte Vecchio overlooking the river and we would recommend the cafe on the upstairs balcony of the Ufizzi for a coffee and wonderful views of the city. For beautiful locally made linen and other textiles visit Le Telerie Toscane di Guilia, in a small street, Sdrucciolo de' Pitti, just opposite the Pitti Palace. As always we were served beautifully by Lisa and Pat Byrne and we recommend them heartily to anyone looking to holiday in a comfortable and well placed apartment in Italy. It was our fourth time with them and there will be a fifth in Rome next year."
