Villa Michelangelo 10 In Florence,
average rating of 4.0 based on 1 reviews

It was a fabulous house but it took quite a while to get into the city by bus and the buses outside

  • 4 of 5

It was a fabulous house but it took quite a while to get into the city by bus and the buses outside the house ran quite infrequently. The air conditioning in the two main bedrooms could have been better but overall it was a spectacular house and the pool is great. Would highly recommend it but would also recommend you have a car.
