Interaction with Guests
Me and my family live on the 3rd floor of the same building and you can always visit us. Also my husband has a newsstand across the street where you can go if you do not find us at home.
I live for 7 years in the district of Peretola and my husband was born here. We love the district, because it has not lost its authenticity, genuineness and friendliness typical of the Italian cities.
The village dates from the Middle Ages and Peretola consists of narrow streets , chapels, numerous courtyards around which the houses are arranged like in a typical rural settlement. Some of these courtyards date back to the fourteenth century! They are separated from the street through an archway or sometimes even covered by wooden beams.
Peretola was the place of origin of the Vespucci family, the famous navigator Amerigo was born here. In the old village is still well preserved the family home and the nearby airport is named after him.
Tommaso Masini was also born here, a friend and collaborator of Leonardo da Vinci. It is said that he was the reckless tester of the flying machine by Leonardo.
There are also some important monuments which are described in our guide.
The bus stop is right in front of the condo. There are two lines that both go in the center.
