The first photo, with the Klimt print, got my attention. My correspondence with Maria Pia made me feel I'd made a good choice, as did my meeting her. Walkable from the train station. Simple yet appealing decor, flat very well-maintained. She was there to meet me, helped with my too heavy suitcase up the one flight, showed me around the flat, made some sightseeing suggestions and pointed them out on the map. And, she was flexible with my checking out a bit later than the 10:00 a.m. checkout. Great flat, especially with its having two full baths -- would be a great place for friends, a family, or two couples. Very near many of the main attractions, including the Duomo and Santa Croce (wasn't aware until I went there just how near it is to the latter ... and do walk along Borge Allegria and enter through the back, by way of the leather school -- an added bonus -- which also sells entry to the church), and not much further to others (Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio). Theatre nearby with different entertainments (I so enjoyed seeing "The Sound of Music" in Italian-!). And, being vegan, was most glad to find that the flat is very near two such restaurants -- Miso di Riso and Universo Vegano -- as well as a market with a small vegan section. I would definitely recommend this flat to family and friends, and would return when next returning to Firenze. Grazie!, Maria Pia.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Maria Pia went out of her way to help us when we were checking out, including buying us bus tickets when taxis were unavailable.

The apartment was perfect for us, one couple plus a friend,. The space was very clean and close to everything we wanted to see.

Thank you, Maria Pia, for helping make our time in Florence very special.
