The apartment is clean and well kept. The pictures are truly representative. The common hallways remain dark until you turn on lights as you enter and leave the apartment. We were advised to ignore any buzzers or knocking on the door which did occur the first night. I guess you must be vigilant in any city and space. We love the space and location! The view of the Piazza out the windows is magical. We were here for the public holiday of Jan 6 th and there was a spectacular parade that we watch from our windows. What fun!
