This place is a hidden gem with some of the best restaurants in the city only 2 min away. We stayed here for three nights on the last part of our Italy trip and it was by far the highlight of our trip. Michel and his wife Cinzia are gentle and kind and very informative. Michel was so gracious when... More

My husband and I found the highly rated 1865 Residenza d'epoca inn Florence on Trip Advisor, and it was even better than the reviews!! Michel and Cinzia were wonderful hosts and the large rooms and modern bath were impeccable. The portable A/C unit in the room was nice to have when the weather got warmer. We particularly enjoyed the breakfast... More

The room was spotless, stylish and comfortable and the hosts were warm, welcoming, and tremendously helpful. Immediately upon our arrival, Cinzia sat down with us and made sure we knew how to get to all the places we wanted to and recommended some wonderful sites we would have missed otherwise. She and her husband were leaving for the weekend but... More

Owners Michel and Cinzia have turned this 1865 historical Residence into modern accommodations without losing the authentic Florentine feel. The ceilings in every room have amazing original paintings. Our room had a very comfortable king bed and a large bathroom with a walk-in shower, bidet & toilet. Who needs a guide when you have this local couple? Cinzia gave us... More

My Wife and I spent 6 wonderful days with Michel & Cinzia, the hosts of 1865. This is a five star B&B, with the personal attention of the hosts for their guests, which is better than some of the 5 star international hotels. It was simply the best. The accommodation is extremely clean, comfortable and immaculate in its décor. At... More

What an amazing oasis!! Our stay was for 3 nights, however, we'd be more than happy to stay longer. Michel are Cinzia are the perfect hosts full of fabulous recommendations for tours, sights and more importantly restaurants. Breakfast was an amazing array of Italian continental delights aswell as Michel's homemade scrambled eggs and incredible Panna Cotta. And their coffee machine... More

We stayed 3 nights and our only disappointment was that we had to leave! We had two rooms, one for my husband and me and one for our kids (ages 13 and 18). The rooms were spacious, beautiful and comfortable. Cinzia and Michel were wonderful hosts. We really felt as if we were welcomed into their home. Cinzia provided lots... More
