Getting around

You are in a no trafic zone and parking is regulateted.
Near house you can take bas (normal and electric) from Salvemini Place.
For your arrival in Florence I suggest you to use a taxi (12 € from station – 25€ from Peretola airport) because since you'll have baggages, public bus won't be not so comfortable for you to get to the flat. But if you prefer to come on foot, the flat is just at the back of Pergola's Theatre, eighteen minutes far from St Maria Novella Station .

  • Very cute apartment in an excellent location! Very smooth check in, Fernando is thorough and thoughtful (he even gave us a bottle of prosecco). We did not read the fine print and did not realize air conditioning was 20 euro a night, so we decided to not have AC. It was very warm as a result, a fan would have been nice. Overall good apartment!

  • We stayed at Fernando's place for 5 days..
    The apartment is at a great location, it is very close to all attractions, museums, bus/train stations, etc.
    The house was really neat & clean, and very tastefully decorated..
    Fernando is a great great host and a very nice person.. He was really helpful and welcoming to us, from the day we arrived till the day we left..
    Thank you Fernando for everything, and of course for the fruits & the home-made prosecco you left for us in the fridge..
    We strongly recommend the apartment to everyone, and hope to stay in our next visit to Florence..

  • We stayed 5 nights at Borgo Pinti and it was a wonderful experience.The place is very charming,super clean and beautifully decorated with all necessary amenities. After our long trip, we were welcomed with a plate of fresh fruits and homemade prosecco in the fridge!Thank you Fernando! The location is perfect, as it is close to the Duomo but away from the noisy traffic.There is an open air market close by and many little restaurants.Truly authentic! We highly recommend it.

  • Wonderful stay at Borgo Pinti!

    Fernando is a great host--he accommodated our late arrival and remained communicative throughout the process. He also left delicious homemade prosecco and fresh fruit for us. The place is tastefully decorated and, most importantly for us, very conveniently located. We were able to make our way around the city by foot as well as walk to the train/bus station for day trips.

    Thanks for your hospitality! We hope to return!

  • I stayed at Fernando's flat on Borgo Pinti for about a week. It was fantastic! The apartment was clean, conveniently located near the Duomo, and had all the right amenities. Fernando was out of town but his terrific friend Maurizio let me in, (and was very kind about the fact that I arrived much later in the day than I originally intended). I plan to be back in Florence again soon, and I will definitely stay here again if it's available.

    Response from Fernando:

    Matthew, you're really nice and I appreciate with Maurizio your favorable expressions and even more the fact that you want to return soon in Borgo Pinti.
    For now, I wish you good work and wait for the opportunity to meet you.

  • My fiance and I spent 7 nights in Borgo Pinti and it was a very good choice. The communication with Fernando was very good, he is kind and always helpful. As our plane had a delay of one hour it was no problem and his friend Maurizio waited for us and gave us a warmly welcome. The fridge was filled with everything you need for breakfast (and Fernando's homemade Prosecco!). So there was no need for us to leave the apartment to find a supermarket. We could just relax the first evening and were fit for the next day. Borgo Pinti is a very good location if you want to explore the city. You can manage everything on foot. The apartment is small but perfect for two people and it was really "cleanissimo" :-). Bedlinen, towels... everything was clean. As i read that in Florence are many mosquitos - and i really suffer from their bites - Fernando gave me a little gadget for protection. There is a mini kitchen in the apartment, not suitable for great cooks, but the essentials can be made easily. Be aware that it's getting very warm in the apartment when you cook something because you cannot create a through draught. Perhaps in summer time it's a good solution to take the air conditioner, that's available. For our needs this apartment was just perfect! And we would definitely book it for our next trip to Florence again. Grazie per tutto, Fernando e alla prossima volta!

    Martina and Denis are guests to recommend. They gave a detailed and precise description of the apartment that I believe will be useful for future guests.
    I am really glad that thay have enjoyed the home and in the city.
    Moreover I felt a true regret when they took their leave.
    I hope thay come back soon in Florence and also that thay can stay just as well.
    Martina, I hope see you soon with Denis!

  • Fernando's apartment was just perfect for our stay in Florence. It was spacious and comfortable. It was very clean and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed the breakfast that was provided and a bottle of Fernando's home made prosecco was delightful. The location was excellent, very close to the Duomo and there are lots of good restaurants in the area. Fernando was always available for enquiries. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking for a lovely Florentine escape. Thankyou Fernando

  • We stayed in Borgo Pinti for a week. It was really close to most sights of the Florence. Fernado provides us some information which was useful, especially the recomendation about restorants was fantastic. We had no problems, so we would recommend this place to our friends!
    Thanks, Fernando!

    Response from Fernando:

    Valentina and her mom were like guests and had a particular interest in the gasronomia. The Florentine restaurants were adequate and I am confident that museums and monuments have been a valuable accompaniment to their journey.
    I hope to have even more of their friends as guests from Moscow.

  • I have stayed in many different apartments in Florence, and my time at Fernando's place was absolutely stellar. There was a situation with the hot water in the apartment I had initially rented, so when I arrived Fernando had me stay in his other apartment in the same building. It was huge, clean, and extremely well-maintained, with lots of beautiful art and a lovely, well-stocked kitchen. The location on Borgo Pinti is ideal--away from the loud touristy areas but a very quick walk to the city center, the Duomo, the Sant'Ambrogio market, and lots of great restaurants and bars.

    Fernando was an extremely responsive and helpful host, as was his friend, Maurizio, who also lives in the same building and was available to help with any questions. I was greeted with a fridge stocked with snacks and treats, including a bottle of Fernando's homemade organic prosecco. Would love to stay again soon!

  • Many thanks to Fernando for the great stay in Florence! The apartment is truly amazing, located in a historic building and very comfortable for two. Antique furniture and an excellent selection of paintings adds a unique charm to this apartment. As for the rest is nothing to complain about, everything is fine. Very close to the house you can find everything you need. Special thanks for the welcome gift from Fernando, homemade Prosecco was amazing!
