About Gaia Vitolo

We are a family with two children. My job is tailoring and my partner is a painter. After an experience in New York we decided to return to our home town, Bologna, even if the trip and the discovery of new land have never left us.

Gaia Vitolo purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Gaia Vitolo chose Florence Historic Centre

The house was bought by my family because we are in love with the beauties and history of our country and the location of this accommodation are truly irresistible, in the heart of the vibrant city.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment keeps the typical characteristics of a Florentine dwelling, it is extremely quiet and it allows you to rest peacefully after long and intense walks and tours during the day.

Loved the location of the apartment and the old world charm of the place

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was perfect for our family of 4--everyone had their own space and the beds were firm & comfortable. We loved the location as it seemed to be a 10-15 minute walk to everywhere we wanted to go. Although the kitchen is tiny, we managed to cook dinner with provisions obtained from the Central Market. The air conditioning was a god-send as the temperatures were 103-105 degrees--it really kept the apartment cool and comfortable even though the apartment is on the top floor of the building. The only reason why we are giving this apartment a 4 star rating is the showers. They are tiny and it took a while for the hot water to heat up and then it ran out very quickly.

Great Apartment - Superb Location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for our family of 5. Short walk from the train and centrally located in the heart of Florence. Easy walking distance to Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi, Accademia, etc. Beautiful apartment outfitted with all the basic amenities you need. Air conditioning was much appreciated in the middle of July! We highly recommend it and would stay again!

Perfect place to stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5

Gaia and Stefano were so helpful with everything and the apartment was beautiful! It had all the amenities we could possibly need and is in a perfect location for exploring the city. Gaia answered my many questions very quickly and gave us some excellent recommendations. Stefano greeted us warmly and made sure we had everything we needed, including restaurant suggestions and reservations. We rented this apartment and another of Gaia's in the same because we had a lathe party and it worked out perfectly for us. I would recommend this apartment to anyone traveling in Florence!

Great Location and Amenities!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful apartment in Florence July 7-9. There were 5 of us and the accommodations were wonderful! There was a bedroom with 2 single beds and a bathroom, a queen bedroom with a bathroom and a loft space with a queen pullout (that my son said was so comfortable!) and an additional bathroom. The living/dining area was spacious and tastefully decorated! We didn't use the kitchen but it was well equipped. The best amenity had to be the washing machine....after 7 days in Rome it was much needed and appreciated! Stephano was wonderful and all the information that Gaia provided prior to our arrival was very helpful! Thank you for making our stay memorable!!

Vigna Nuova street, one of the main streets of the centre Florence, located in a rich and attractive neighbourhood. This street is really interesting, since it houses various renowned and exclusive boutique brands. In the same street you can find amazing examples of architecture like Palazzo Rucellai designed by the multi-faceted Renaissance figure, Leon Battista Alberti. The same palace that houses the apartments, a beautiful example of noble architecture of the seventeenth century.
