Paolo is a fantastic host! He met us on arrival and gave us some great tips; including maps with suggested routes to help us plan our trip. The apartment is highly recommended and we would stay here again during our next visit to Florence.

The apt we rented for our last night in Florence was so sweet and cozy! Our host Stephen greeted us just as we arrived! He was full of great suggestions and information on places to eat and things to go see! He was really nice and caring . He helped make us a reservation for dinner a very cute old resteraunt that had fried zucchini flowers that were delicious! He called a taxi for us to come pick us up and got up at 4:00 AM to check and make sure the taxi had come! Now that is going out of your way to help us! We only had one night stay but would have loved to stayed more. We hope to come back and stay in this place again! It was in a perfect location to see everything to close by that we wanted to walk and see! Thank you so much for your hospitality and care!
Paolo's flat was wonderful. It was very centrally located (just a few short blocks from the Ponte Vecchio) which meant we could walk to many of the attractions and museums, with ease. The flat was well equipped and the bed was very comfortable. Paolo was very helpful by providing maps and indicating the nearby attractions that we would not want to miss, as well as suggesting a few very good restaurants in the neighbourhood. I would not hesitate to stay there again, and would recommend his flat to others.
Paolo was very welcoming and provided us with a lot of information about the area. The location was very convenient and there were a lot of things to do in the area.
The apartment was very interesting and spacious. It had everything we needed. Our only complaint is that the hot water in the shower kept going in and out.

About the Host, Paolo
My name is Paolo and I'm a full time Airbnber! I like to take care of my guests, by providing them with maps, suggestions and whatever else needed. I'm also very happy to come and pick you up at the station.
I speak Italian and English, so foreign tourists are more than welcome.
