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 Santa Maria Novella

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.

Perfect Location - Wonderful Hosts - Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

I will be brief since many reviews have covered this apartment so well.

Location - Perfect "home base" for a Florence stay. Extremely close to everything without being in the middle of the densest tourist areas. We loved the location.

Accommodations - The place is very comfortable. Loved sitting inside with the windows open enjoying the sounds of the city. I thought the beds were very comfortable and we slept well. The apartment has a lot of charm - the pictures describe it perfectly.

Hospitality - The owner and the people who care for you during your stay are great. Very accommodating and always available. We appreciated them very much.

If we went back to Florence - which we would love to do - we'd look no further than this particular apartment or another by he same owner. Thanks for everything, our stay was excellent!!

The perfect location in a beautifully restored building

  • 5 of 5

Gaia was amazing to work with very responsive and truly seem to care about our experience. The apartment is three levels of rich history and truly adds to the Italian way of life that we wanted to see. The beds are comfy and there was coffee and tea available the very first moment we walked in. As would be expected in a 400+ year old building the water temperature is a little unpredictable. But the classy location and ease of getting around makes this one a winner and I would definitely return !!!

Fantastic apartment in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautiful and very clean. It was definitely the best Homeaway we stayed in during our trip in Italy. The location could not have been better… it’s about a 5-12 minute walk to virtually anywhere in the city you would want to go (Uffizi, Accadameia, the Duomo, train station, etc.). The street the apartment is on has lots of great shopping.

Also, Gaia was incredibly helpful and a great host. My brother accidently lost his passport in the apartment and didn’t realize until we had left and were in Venice. Gaia was very responsive and helpful. She alerted the cleaning staff to search the apartment high and low. Luckily, they found it and made retrieving the lost passport super easy. Thank you so much Gaia for a wonderful stay and for being so understanding and helpful regarding the passport.

Perfect location in Firenze

  • 5 of 5

This was the trip of a lifetime! We started our vacation in Florence, eventually going to Venice, Amalfi, and Rome before flying back home to US. We really enjoyed our stay in Florence, this apartment was exactly what the pictures show, you will not be disappointed. The apartment is centrally located, a walking distance to most major attractions. We really enjoyed stopping for coffee and pastry every morning in a local coffeee shop a few steps away from the apartment. When I return, I will look for the same apartment if available. It really was perfect!! AWESOME experience!

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.
