This is a lovely apartment. There is a little noise from the neighbours as the property is an old building with no sound proofing between floors. It is a 20 minute walk from the centre of Firenze (although it took us a little longer on our first walk). The area is very convenient with a bakery and wine shop across the road. There are excellent eating places nearby particularly Trattoria "da Tito" which we really enjoyed. Paolo gives lots of tips on local restaurants, where the nearest supermarket is and how to get around the city.
My family and I stayed in the penthouse for a week and it surpassed all expectations!
Location is amazing, the apartment is spacious and the view from the terrace is one of the best in Florence! Upon arrival; we were greeted by Julio and he could not have been more helpful - His recommendations while staying in Florence were superb.
I would recommend the penthouse to anyone thinking about staying in Florence - Thank you so much!
