The bed and breakfast is located in Rifredi, 10 minutes from the airport, near the train station SMN-FI, the Fortezza da Basso is within walking distance, the old town in 5 minutes, the bus stop is in front home, the garage Tanucci in front of the house is in agreement with 15 euro per day, the University Hospital Careggi including the Universities of Florence, including the faculties of Engineering, Biology, Mathematics and Medicine, Meyer Hospital are near from "a Casa di Virgilio".
Focal point near B&B is Piazza Dalmazia, now called "natural shopping center" for the several number of shops that face the last resistance to the invasion of big chains and corporations. Closer to home there are supermarkets like "Coop" and "Esselunga”, nearby organic supermarket “NaturaSì", the famous "trippaio" has its stand in the Tanucci square, pizza, and anything can be enjoyable and comfortable your stay in Florence.

A lovely little B&B in an apartment building just out of the main part of town. On a main road, there is a bus stop right outside with a 10min ride into the main train station. The blue room is spacious with its own private bathroom. Breakfast is provided by Laura in an adjoining dining area. Laura is a gracious host who was happy to help in any way she could. We had some lovely chats in her broken English and our broken Italian. :-)
My husband and I stayed in the Blue room. Our experience with Laura was the best that we have had out of 5 Airbnb places. Laura was easy to work with when booking. She doesn't speak very good English but we had no problem communicating with her via email. She was very welcoming and when we ended up showing up later than expected Laura was still a gracious host. The room was big, clean and comfortable. When we asked about laundry services Laura offered to do our laundry for us for a minimal extra fee. This gave us more time to explore Florence and it was greatly appreciated. We decided to stay in Florence longer and wish that her BnB had availability for us to continue our stay there. The bus stop is literally right outside the front door and it takes only 5 minutes to get to the train station. We would definitely stay in Laura's BnB again!

About the Host, Laura
Salve mi chiamo Laura, ho da poco aperto il B&B “A Casa di Virgilio” a Firenze. Questo stimolo è nato dal desiderio di crearmi un’occupazione stimolante e indipendente, poiché ho un ottimo rapporto con il mio prossimo e mi piace fare nuove amicizie, ho pensato di mettere a disposizione di chi avesse necessità di soggiornare a Firenze la casa dei miei nonni.
In anni remoti mi sono diplomata all’Istituto d’Arte, amo la pittura, la musica, la natura, le passeggiate, il trekking, la montagna, gli animali (soprattutto il mio cane Vasco), credo fermamente nel volontariato infatti ho prestato servizio al 118 come soccorritrice e all’associazione Oami di Prato. Mi piace leggere e non mi piace la televisione. Ho due figli di 20 ed 11 anni ed un marito che fa il tipografo.
Cos’altro dire??? Vi aspetto numerosi in questa meravigliosa città!
