Giovanni Fabbri purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Giovanni Fabbri chose Florence Historic Centre

I bought this house in 2007 to go and live there when I'll stop working in a few years in the meantime I rent it. I am very happy to do it because I have the opportunity to contact people from all over the world. And I like to think that they also prove the same emotion that I felt when I looked out from the windows seeing "Della SignnorIa square"

What makes this apartment unique

Here you live Florence in his heart. You are 50 meters from the 'deli Uffizi gallery' museum, 100 from the cathedral and a few minutes walk from the major monuments and museums. The area is one of the oldest and most famous jewelry shops. There are still goldsmiths, one right next door to the apartment

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

The house was in a great location. You can easily walk to all the sights, shopping and restaurants. There is a cute wine bar next to it and the grocery store is very close. The piazza had a band almost every night. The owner response to question quickly and is very helpful. I would definitely recommend this.

Great location. Perfect flat in a perfect location to see all the sights of Florence

  • 4 of 5

This is a good sized four bedroom flat in central Florence. It is clean and well kept. We easily and comfortably slept 7 people for 10 nights. Although the flat is advertised to accommodate 12 people that many would be a very tight fit. The flat has a fully functioning kitchen and two baths. The owner also employs an English-speaking attendant to help with checking in and local information/ recommendations. You need to know There is a small - 2 person - elevator or 75 steps to climb to get to the flat. The owner replaced a poorly operating refrigerator with a new one very quickly after we arrived to assure our stay went great. Street noise can be a bit distracting on weekend evenings when you are tired and want to sleep. There are two supermarkets located a short 5 min walk from the flat.

Overall, good value for the price. We would rent this flat again without hesitation.

Great apartment and location

Location couldn't have been better - 50 meters to the Uffizzi and three blocks from the Ponte Vecchio. Apartment was great also, and good communication from all. Highly recommended.

May wife and I had a great time in Florence with our four grown children. The apartment is located right in the middle of Florence and within walking distance of many sites and attractions. Neil, the rental agent was very friendly and accommodating. Great view if the plaza from the windows and many places to eat within walking distance. We would definitely stay here again.

WONDERFUL propoerty in the heart of everything!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic apartment in the heart of everything. Just off the square Piazza della Signoria, with a view of the Pallazzo Vecchio from the living room window. Just a couple blocks from Ponte Vecchio.

Clean, well appointed and well maintained appartment. Giovanni and his wife were perfect hosts! Just next door is a Pannini shop, and almost directly across the street from the front door is a wonderful Bar/Pasticceria.

While the square was busy late into the night, the apartment is on the 4th level of the building and noise was not a problem, we visited with six adults and we all slept like babies.

We would highly recommend this property for anyone visiting Florence!
