This is one of those rare cases where the internet description matched reality. The location is perfect for walking to almost all of the sites that are "must sees". In addition, the property manager, Anna, could not have been more helpful in terms of not only the apartment itself but with coordinating tours, cooking, and local information. Overall, it was a great experience that I would gladly repeat.
Amazing!!!!! If you come to Florence you will be amazed by this home! It's in a great area. The palazzo is a spectacular place to visit. It's a grand apartment in the heart of the old city, so excellent restaurants are a stone's throw away. World class museums, such as the Uffizi, are a mere 10 minute walk. You can get breakfast right outside your door, hale a taxi about two blocks left of the home and experience the best city in the world! My family absolutely loved our stay. Yet, while you're in the middle of the action, inside your apartment, it is all peace and quiet. Highly recommended! The owner went above and beyond for us. When my mother had to stay in the hospital, the owner checked in on us frequently and accommodated our needs to stay an extra day. I was amazed by her kindness. Recommendations: Go to the Pitti palace the first day! Visit Santo Spirito for drinks (Go right from the house. Take the first right and stay straight passed the pizza place. It's awesome!) Eat at Restaurant Galleria right up the road to the left in a cut out... yellow restaurant sign! Don't miss it - eat a Florentine steak (share with someone) Enjoy Florence!
We had an incredible time at this lovely place. The setting and location was fantastic. We were able to book this place , last minute, as the dates were available. There was a bar/restaurant down below and we became fast friends with staff there.
Our group adored this place! Very luxurious place with tons of space. Definitely a highlight of the Florence part of the trip!
We had a wonderful stay at the Piazza Pitti apartment! It is spacious, exquisitely decorated, and has every amenity one could want. The apartment is even more beautiful in person than in the pictures. It is absolutely perfect for a large group and family gatherings. We were 9 people, and were incredibly comfortable. We cooked two large dinner parties in the fantastic kitchen, and found everything a chef could want. Donatella and her team were wonderful hosts and available for anything we needed. It was a truly 5 start experience and we will be back!
If you are looking for a comfortable, spacious, extremely well equipped luxury apartment, then this is the one for you. Superbly located opposite the Pitti Palace, and close to the many attractions of fabulous Florence it is the perfect home from home. Would have liked to have stayed longer, and will certainly be booking again hopefully later this year when we hope to explore more of Florence and venture further into the beautiful Tuscan countryside. One highlight was a superb day out with Hire-in-Italy who drove us through the stunning Chianti area and took us to some marvellous hill top towns where we ate delicious home made pasta, overlooking amazing views. We long to be back!
This apartment was one of the nicest apartments I've ever stayed in. It is located across from the Boboli Gardens and it is a five minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio. There are four luxurious bedrooms and three of them have an ensuite bathroom. The kitchen is spacious and the host offered free wine during our stay. You are steps away to shops and restaurants. Our favorite stop was the little restaurant next to the apartment. We had a fabulous time staying in this incredible apartment.
