About Dependance Machiavelli

My name is Pierpaolo and for the past fifteen years I have dedicated myself to welcoming tourists to our beautiful Florence. I always thought that the money spent in travel is well spent, and the feelings that pervade you when you know new places and people are hard to explain. Although by now we all live in a "global world" I still believe that essential human contact and make people feel at ease. That's why I decided to create this lovely apartment with the goal of not only welcoming guests but allowing them to experience true and proper "Florentine" culture.

Although this is an apartment and does not have a true concierge service, it will still be my pleasure to take care of you, helping you to plan your stay, from your arrival, to booking individual visits or tours to museums in Florence, advising about local restaurants, and organizing excursions to nearby cities (Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa, and Cinque Terre), as well as the beauties of Tuscany and Chianti with its hills and its wines known throughout the world. Please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to answer your questions or provide you with additional information.

Beautifully decorated apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a modern clean apartment within walking distance from the train and a block from the river. It was easy to get to the center of the city yet nice to be away from the crowds. When we arrived there was fruit and a bottle of wine waiting for us in addition to some juice and bottled water in the fridge. There is a cafe below and we woke up to the lovely smell of baked husband enjoyed the espresso there and I loved the pastries. There was also a small grocery store a few doors down. Pierpaolo was a wonderful host and made us feel so welcome. His english was perfect. He gave us his contact number for any questions or problems and we did have to use it once when we had an issue with the lock box. He also helped us make reservations at a very popular restaurant. We rented a car and the agency was right down the road. It couldn't have been more perfect and is so much better than staying in a hotel. Thanks Pierpaolo.

Perfect home away from home in Florence

  • 5 of 5

Our week in Dependance Machiavelli is a memory we will treasure forever. The apartment is ideally located near the train station and within a short walk of the city's historic sites, it is perfectly suited for 2 people, and the basket of fruit and bottle of wine that greeted us was a nice touch. Then there was our host, the young, dynamic, enthusiastic and always helpful Pierpaolo. He welcomed us warmly to the apartment and his city, and was kind enough to give us an early morning drive to the airport. In short, we highly recommend Dependance Machiavelli to anyone looking for a great vacation in Florence.--Mike and Jim

Borgo Ognissanti, which owes its name to the Church of All Saints, is a street full of shops and great restaurants (Italian and international), and provides a variety of large and small activities designed to satisfy every need.

While Florence is a very quiet town, the presence of the police station makes Borgo Ognissanti a very safe area both day and night.

Ideal for daily shopping, a Conad supermarket is right next to the apartment building.

For the sweet tooth I recommend the bakery Becagli (also next to the apartment) where you will find every morning fresh bread, cakes, and great ideas for breakfast. In addition, across the street is the bar Blanco, a local very nice place for breakfast or a quick lunch.

Going to Piazza Goldoni (shortly beyond the police station) I recommend the San Carlo, a very casual bar but also somewhere to enjoy drinks at the end of the evening (their drinks are excellent).

Tired of so much culture? No problem! On Via Maso Finiguerra is the multiplex cinemas Marconi, always full of premieres. For those who want to enjoy a bit of pampering, I recommend the spa Javasun.

Finally, but of primary importance, between Borgo Ognissanti and Maso Finiguerra are located all the most well known car rental agencies (Avis, Hertz, Europecar, Maggiore, etc.) that will allow you to rent a car for day trips or to continue your journey your next destination.
