About this listing
Distinctive and unique one space apartment on three levels, located in the lively heart of the historical center of Florence, few steps from the main square of the city (Santa Croce, Dome, Piazza Signoria) in an old quarter where you can still feel the life of the town, visiting handcraft's shops.
The kitchen offers all the facilities to cook dishes of all kinds. The owner provides free tea and coffee.
The apartment is equipped with a double bed (2 persons) and a bed placed on a non-habitable mezanine (1 person).
The finishes of the apartment were made from natural materials and chemically untreated.
The district offers many possibilities to eat something of the typical Tuscan cooking, and wineries where you can taste the best Italian and foreign wines. The owner will be happy to give any indication about that.
The distance from the railway station of Santa Maria Novella is about 1 km away and it is served by bus, if you do not want to opt for a pleasant walk of about 20 minutes through the historical center.
Sarà necessario fornire copia del passaporto o documento di identità di tutti gli ospiti al momento dell'arrivo.

The apartment is exactly like the description and pictures in the profile.
The location is perfect because it's 7 minutes walk to all major tourist spots on the north side of the river and less than 20 minutes to Piazzale Michelangelo which was the farthest distance we travelled in the 2 day period.
The communication with Michele was clear and easy. Upon arrival, Michele gave us detailed instruction of the apartment and a map with local places (food, supermarket) he recommended. We followed his recommendation and we didn't regret it.
Highly recommend this place for future guests to Florence.
Michele greeted us cordially and promptly
whisked our heavy bags up to his charming
top floor apartment located at the very heart
of historic Florence. He was extremely helpful with information about "must see"
locations as well as where to get the best food and gelato in town. He was right next store and ready to help us any way he could.
His apartment was comfortable, clean, and attractive. Whether eating out or in everything was close at hand and we were surrounded by everything this amazing city has to offer. We highly recommend Michele and his great rental.
We loved staying here. Michele was fantastic. We felt terrible that he had to stay up till 2am to meet us but he was a gracious host, helping with our bags and taking the time to give us a quick tour of the apartment, despite the hour. The location is fantastic, within walking distance of everything, the list of restaurants in the area comprehensive and the apartment was cosy and clean. Thank you Michele. We will definitely stay again although we will try to arrive earlier next time. Gracie Mille.
This apartment was amazing! We got a warm welcome by Michele's mother. The apartment was very cosy and made you feel like home. The location was simply perfect: just one street away from Santa Croce and also close to the Duomo. You can find a supermarket, a nice cafe with good coffee and pastry (Tre Merli) and next to it a delicious icecream bar.
I would certainly recommend this apartment to everybody!
Appartement super bien placé et très bien décoré.
A 5-10 min del Duomo donc parfait pour les visites.
Great apartment!! Very charming and artistic. Great location and check in was easy. We loved our stay in a true Italian neighborhood!! Easy walk to everything!!
Michele's home was a delight to stay in! Easy walking distance to all the places you want to visit in Florence and really close to the Duomo and a whole bunch of great food and drink spots. Make sure you take him up on his local food and drink recommendations - all the spots he mentioned were top class. Overall, an amazing experience.
