About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, Sleeps up to 3


Take in the splendor of Florence with vast views and an expansive terrace. Take in all 360 degrees of historic sites, from San Miniato to the Duomo to the hills of Tuscany. We call this apartment Amore because of the way you will feel as you look outside from your own piece of Florence.

Florence`s Oltrarno is prized for it many wonderful restaurants and fine Florentine craft workshops. The apartment is a short walk up the street or via steps that rise from the river. As you walk a bit of a steep hill , you are soon rewarded by the spectacular views!

The Amore is located on the top floor, with elevator. A sofa bed in the living room can sleep one. It is flanked by two upholstered arm chairs. An antique bureau greets you as you step into the apartment. Enjoy the marvelous views of historic Florence.

The dining area seats four. There are wood floors throughout the apartment. French doors by the dining table lead out to the terrace.

The main terrace is on two levels, paved in terracotta tiles. The lower level, accessed off the dining area has a table and four chairs. Views from this terrace faces towards the south, with wonderful views of Florence`s Oltrarno area as well as the center of the city. The kitchen window has views out onto this terrace. A flight of stairs leads to the upper terrace which has two recliners for sunbathing, and a small table and chairs.

Watch the light as it moves across the buildings and enjoy living with fabulous views of Florence that few get to experience. These terraces will surely be the setting for many wonderful hours where you can enjoy meals, coffee or cocktails under sunny Florentine skies, certain to make for special memories of your Florence stay.

The living & dining room furniture is comfortable and basic, (Most likely you will be spending your time outside on the well appointed terraces!)

The kitchen is small. It has microwave, 4 burner gas stove, refrigerator with separate freezer section, dishwasher. The washing machine is in the kitchen.

The bedroom has a divisible 'king', two single beds that can be made up separately or joined to form a bed that is 10 inches wider than a North American Queen and 6 inches narrower than a King. It is nicely appointed with an antique cornice detail and a painting over the bed that lends a romantic touch. Another surprise is the little terrace off the bedroom with two chairs and more beautiful views.

The bathroom is accessed off the living room. It has a bathtub with shower attachment, toilet and bidet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at Amore in July, 2015 and vowed we would be back with family and friends. In July, 2017 and we made good on our promise - renting three units. Amore was just as we remembered in 2015!

Spectacular views

  • 4 of 5

We loved Santo Spirito, great location with views of all that Florence is known for. I would upgrade toiletries and bed pillows but other than that, this apartment was a wonderful oasis.

Words alone won't do

  • 5 of 5

When I first reserved this apartment, the photos spoke for themselves. And for months we looked forward to our 7 October days in Amore. Once inside the incredibly well-located unit, though, it was clear that reality vastly superseded the website! The views have to be among Firenze's very best. Seriously. Inside, the furnishings and appointments were fine. Slightly small kitchen, but that didn't keep us from preparing Italian meals to enjoy on one of three balconies. Groceries, bars, museums, and shops of Otrarno and Santu Spiritu are literally just down the street--downhill! We highly recommend this rental and think highly of the professional Italy Perfect team. Ciao!

Florence Amore apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautifully located, only a couple of blocks from the Ponte Veche, great grocery store within a block, so close to the best sites in Florence. Many restaurants to walk to & shopping along the Arno river and just a short walk into a great shopping district.

The apartment is great for 2 people, beautiful patios overlooking the city, great views! There is a small elevator in the building, so once you get to the entrance, easy enough to get your luggage to the apartment. Taxi's cannot get to the front entrance, luckily we had a driver pick us up, he found a place to park & allowed us to walk down the street with our luggage to get to the entrance. Most taxi's will drop you at the end of the street & it is an uphill walk to the entrance. The other thing to know, the TV is Italian speaking stations only, Wifi is weak, best pick-up is in the bedroom or on the patio outside the bedroom. Bed is very firm and the kitchen is small, but very workable.

Overall, we loved it & would recommend it.

Better than expected

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have picked a more perfect and romantic place to spend our honeymoon and Christmas. The apartment was comfortable and had everything we needed. The terrace above was a spectacular place to eat breakfast. It was also a great place to stop by in the afternoon as a break from walking around, as well as at night. It's truly a panoramic view of the city. The greeter that was nice enough to let us in at 11pm. He also gave us a map and pointed out some great restaurants nearby and important nearby sights he recommended. He pointed out the Uffizi, Academy of Arts, Michelangelo's Plaza, and other places.

The apartment was about a three minute walk down some steps to the Ponte Vecchio. Before reaching the Ponte Vecchio, around the corner is a grocery store, wine shop, and a very nice place to eat called Golden View, which is on the Arno and overlooks the Ponte Vecchio.

Our surrounding area was very safe and in a great part of town. I would recommend Italy Perfect to a friend, and we are even hoping to return to this apartment for an anniversary or something someday!
