I traveled with my husband and my 20 y.o. son, we stayed for a week and we felt like real Fiorentine. We were very comfortable in this apartment, which could easily accommodate 6. The apartment is spacious, tastefully decorated; it has excellent internet connection, AC in most all rooms, and hot water. It doesn't have a washing machine but there at least 3 laundry mats near by. What we loved the most is the location, it is located right in front of the piazza Santa Maria Novella, there are cafes and restaurants right out the door, 5 minutes from the train station, minimarket, shops, there is a tourist information booth right in front of the apartment and an information center around the corner where we booked our all day wine tour for $55/person. The Duomo, Mercado and basilica San Lorenzo (the oldest one) are 5 minutes away. 10 minutes from Piazza Senoria and no more than 15 min. to Santa Croce and Ponte Vecchio. By the end of our trip we did not need maps at all.
We had a great experience and it was also thanks to the family who rented us the apartment, they were wonderful! Ana Maria, Sergio and their daughter Chiara went out of their way to help us and make us feel welcome; they gave us useful information not only about places to visit but also about events going on in the city. We’ll be for ever grateful to Ana Maria who helped my husband find his Italian roots, she is quite a detective. We are grateful for their kindness.
