About Pietro Tonelli e Viviana Colombassi

We are a big and happy family of five living in a large house in the very city center of Florence. We laugh often, we are loud (... but we are trying to improve!) and we move too much our hands trying to explain you how to reach the Duomo. Yes, we are the typical Italian family and we are very proud of it! We will be happy to welcome you in our home and to share a bit of our culture and customs with you.

Pietro Tonelli e Viviana Colombassi purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Pietro Tonelli e Viviana Colombassi chose Santo Spirito

We purchased the property in 2015, has been completely restored and refurnished for making it comfortable for our guests

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is located in the heart of "Oltrarno", the most artistic, quiet, authentic and quaint area of Florence. Here you can find great little osterias and shops down every street. Five minutes walking from here you find the charming Piazza Santo Spirito, where you find restaurants and pizzerias, a place always full of life.

San Frediano is a real residential neighbourhood and only a 15 minute walk over the bridge and into the main attraction area of the city (Ponte Vecchio, the Duomo, Piazza della Signoria, the Uffizi ...)

Highly recommend staying here!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at 5 VRBO properties during our trip to Italy and this was one of our favorites. Pietro was very helpful and accessible right from the minute I started interacting with him prior to booking. We were arriving in Florence before check-in time, and he generously offered to stow our luggage for the day. He offered to pick us up from the rental car drop off but we decided to walk since the property was only a short distance away. Pietro was there to greet us in person when we arrived and gave us an incredibly warm and friendly welcome. It ended up that the property was empty the night before, so he kindly allowed us in early. He provided an amazing list of restaurants. We tried several of them - the food was delicious and they were definitely not tourist traps. Pietro also gave great tips on the less well known sites to visit (Brancacci Chapel, Basilica of St. Maria del Santo Spirito, Bardini Gardens). He checked in with us regularly during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed.

The property itself was lovely - beautifully decorated and even nicer than in the pictures. It was very spacious, clean, well equipped and had comfortable beds and plenty of quality towels. Having 2 bathrooms was an added bonus. The property was perfect for our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teenagers). The WiFi was fast - very important with 2 teenagers! We loved staying in Oltrarno - just a short walk to the main attractions but so nice to stay in a community where Florentines live and work.

We had a great experience with this property/host and I would highly recommend staying here when you are in Florence! We hope to return.

Charming, spacious and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Oltrarno! Pietro was such a kind host and helped us navigate the city. He gave us many restaurant recommendations and things to try. He kept in touch with us and found us a place to park our car and was always available throughout our stay to answer any questions we had or make further recommendations. The apartment itself is beautiful. Very tastefully decorated and exceptionally clean. The location is perfect. It is away from the hustle bustle of Florence on the other side of the river but still within a short walk to the city center. It was the perfect place to stay for our family!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights and had a great time! The apartment was spacious, the location was perfect - walkable to everything but with a non-touristy, local-flavor vibe (awesome gelato right around the corner!), and Pietro was a gracious and accomodating host.

Highly recommended!

A great host and a wonderful home for a visit to Florence

  • 5 of 5

Charming is the word that comes first to mind, both in terms of the host, Pietro, and the apartment. Pietro went out of his way to communicate with us in advance of and during our stay, making sure we knew everything we needed to know, including very good recommendations on where to eat, where to shop and what to see and do. He clearly wanted to make sure we enjoyed our visit in his city. His assistance was invaluable. And the apartment is every bit as nice as the photos. Clean, comfortable and cozy. Roomy and well equipped. It is located on a quiet residential street on the south side of the river, near two of the must-see attractions: Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens. It is an easy walk across the river to the main part of the city. And Florence is a very walkable city. A great place to experience the Florence/Firenze that the residents experience while being easily accessible to the sights most people come to see.

Very nice...

  • 5 of 5

This place is very well-decorated and was ideal for our stay. If you don't mind a little extra walk to start and end your day, it's a nice retreat from the tourist center. This neighborhood has a great piazza (Santo Spirito) and a totally different feel than the tourist center - staying here's like getting two vacations for the price of one. The beds were comfortable and we'd definitely want to stay there again if we went back to Florence. The owner was also very nice and response to anything we needed.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is lovely, comfortable and private. It's close enough to walk to from the train station and convenient for all the main attractions. We only had a very short stay but loved Florence and would love to visit again. Pietro was a very good host and gave us very useful information on the best restaurants and sights to visit.

We are in San Frediano, a historical and fascinating, the only area where there are still Florentine artisans. Piazza Santo Spirito, a 2-minute walk from the apartment, is among the most characteristic of FIrenze, and with its organic markets or antiques, premises and pizzerias, is the liveliest area of ​​the city.
