Accademia House is a great place to stay. We were there for a week in October of 2011 and then returned for another night later in our trip. Our room (the Studio) was large and the bathroom is new. We found the location to be excellent for our needs. The internet worked perfectly and we enjoyed having a kitchenette although we basically used it to keep cold drinks and fresh fruit. We loved the little balcony where we could watch the neighborhood activity. Marco provided excellent dinner recommendations throughout our stay.
Now a bit about Marco Viti. My hero! We arrived in Florence 6 hours late as our flight was diverted to Genoa due to bad weather. With no access to a phone we were unable to call Marco for a couple of hours to let him know our status. When we finally spoke to him he had figured it all out and assured us he would be available whenever we arrived.
After first fearing for our lives on a roller coaster plane ride, a long wait at the Genoa airport in an area without phone access, and a very long bus ride from Genoa to Florence we finally arrived jet lagged, exhausted and hungry. No problem! Marco was there to greet us, set us up in our room, and found us a nearby late night restaurant. Ahhhhhh. Then I realized – I had left my carry on in the dark cab. I didn’t even have a toothbrush. I always count our bags but this time had forgotten. Being so exhausted, I was almost in tears.
Here is the bit where you learn why Marco is my hero. Allora! No problem! Marco immediately got on the phone and the bag was delivered by the driver within 20 minutes. I am quite impressed with the calm and easy way he handled my little crisis. Marco is a very warm, open, big hearted man. He will tell you some great stories. He will make you laugh, and most of all – he will make sure you are comfortable. Marco Viti will see us again at Accademia House.
