About this listing
Rent for a short term a studio apartment (max 2 people) in the heart of Florence!
It's a mini full-equipped apartment with a sofa bed, kitchenette, wardrobe, central heating, bathroom, internet and TV. Towels and linen will be provided.
The strong point is its location. You will be able to visit Florence with no need of public transportation.
Only a short walk from famous landmarks such as the Uffizi Museum, the Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens, the Ponte Vecchio which spans the Arno river, Santa Croce and Piazza della Signoria.
A few steps away you will find cafès, pubs, restaurants, internet points, laundry service, gelato places and more.
Being located a few steps from the river, you can even walk to the Oltrarno district ("the other side of the river") and walk up to Piazzale Michelangelo, a famous square with a magnificent panoramic view.
You can reach my place very easily from the train station by bus since the bus stop (n° 23) is right in front of the entrance of my house.
If you'd like to stay at a B&B in the center of Florence, take a look of this beautiful room:
Especially during spring and summer time, you might feel the need to enjoy the sun and the most beautiful beaches of Italy.
Take a look at this nice independent house located in Cagliari, Sardinia, managed by a close friend of mine:
If you'd like go there from Florence, let me know, and it will be a pleasure for me to help you find the best way to get to Sardinia.
Sardinia is an amazing place where to spend your holidays in Italy. Not only it boasts a great cultural and historical heritage but also among the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean Sea!

Please, switch he air conditioner off t when you leave the room. In case you forget to do it, any member of my familty is allowed to get in the apartment to turn it off.
Leave the room neat and clean as you found it and limit the noise level in the stair and apartment.
The place was exactly as described. Very clean and comfortable. I never used any transportation. Everything is within walking distance. I did not meet Massimo but I met with Riccardo, who was very friendly. The place was spacious enough for a couple. If you wish to cook there is plenty of equipment in the kitchen. It was cool enough for a good night sleep and even for a siesta, despite the exteremely hot weather in July. I definetly wanna come back. Perfect. Thank you.
I didn't manage to meet Massimo in person as he was out of town but Riccardo handed me the keys and was very friendly and gave some good tips on the city. The apartment is very centrally located and within walking distance from most tourist landmarks and sights. The place is tidy and clean and I had no major concerns during my stay.
Great place and experience! The flat is in a perfect location to walk (or bike) anywhere. Massimo responds quickly and the instructions were straight forward and easy to follow. It was easy to find by cab from the airport (it is in walking distance to the train station). Ricardo, who let us in, was very nice and helpful (he showed us where we needed to go for the wedding events we were attending). Highly recommend and would stay here on any trip back to Florence!
I didn't have the pleasure to meet Massimo who is abroad but his brother in-law Riccardo was there to greet me and he is super nice. The appartment is exactly as shown in the pictures and the location is perfect, within walking distance from all the major points of interest. For sure I'm staying at the same place if I ever go back to Firenze. I recommend!
Todo genial con este departamento! Tiene todo lo que necesitas y una ubicación excelente, nos encantó. Además, como Massimo no se encontraba nos recibió su cuñado, Ricardo, quien nos dio información para movernos por ahí. Gracias a ambos!
The space is beautiful! Once we arrived we felt at home welcomed like family! So many Smiles! The space is large comfortable and quiet! Very well located 5 minutes from pointe Vecchio. The space has everything you need Including Air Conditioning! Which is needed in 35 degree weather! Thank you for hosting us and we look forward to our return! Riccardo is fantastic and will help you with anything you need Bravo!
