Sadly we didn't have the chance to meet Riccardo (hopefully next time!). The host was extremely nice and personable. She gave us a tour of the house, helped us with setting up Wi-Fi, showed us how to use the washer (you must unplug the A.C. to use the washer); we were so thankful to have a washer. The apartment was huge and in a perfect, central location. Only 10 mins. from most everything (Duomo, restaurants, etc.) even the train station. There is two little flights of stairs so in case you have luggage be prepared to carry them a short distance, it was doable and worth it! This apartment exceeded our exceptions, it was so pretty and clean. Thank you for your warm hospitality! Hope to return again soon! Grazie mille! Chao!

Riccardo was a very thoughtful host. His apartment was very clean and spacious and he had left us a bottle of wine, beer, juice and water. He also provided body wash and other nice touches to make the visit enjoyable. He was also very willing to work with us when we needed to make a last minute change to our plans. Thanks Riccardo!

Riccardo is a very thoughtful host! He met us at the apartment..assisted us with our luggage, and made us feel right at home! He made sure we were comfortable with using the appliances..and even showed us how to make coffee the Italian way! The apartment is beautiful...and it has the best equipped kitchen and ammenities! Riccardo has thought of everything to make his guests' stay just perfect! I can't wait to return for another visit!

Awesome host! Wish there were 10 stars to give Riccardo. So thoughtful to leave a bottle of wine, juice, beer, water, toasts, and biscotti. And Italian ground coffee for that cute little pot. So much appreciated after 12 hours on the train! Apartment was immaculate and very spacious. Riccardo met us and explained everything. Went over a map and marked places to go. Great location. Safe and easy to walk to all the sights. Tons of restaurants close by. Within walking distance of train station. Riccardo did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. I would not stay anywhere else in Florence now that we have experienced this apartment. Thank you Riccardo for your gracious hospitality. You are an exceptional Airbnb host.

We spent 12 days in northern Italy, and Violet's House was by FAR our favorite and best Airbnb experience! Not that the others were bad, because we loved everywhere we stayed -- but this place is over the top! We were blown away. The pictures don't really do it justice, because it's much larger and nicer than you imagine. And Riccardo was a superb host! Everything you could ever want was readily available -- it's as though he anticipated every need a guest could have, and stocked the house accordingly. A/C in the bedrooms makes for a comfortable night's sleep, the kitchen is well stocked and large, both bathrooms are nice, and the location is perfect -- it's a short stroll to the Accademia Gallery, and also a 10 minute walk to/from the train station. We can't say enough good things about this place, and about Riccardo as our host. It's definitely going to be our place every time we come to Florence / Firenze! Oh, and our favorite restaurant of the entire trip is just right around the corner -- Vecchio Cancello on Via Guelfa. That place is amazing, so much so that we ate there several nights in a row. It was so nice to have a great meal, and then a two minute walk back to such a lovely apartment. Bellissimo, in every way!

Riccardo is wonderful and so is his home! It is a spacious apartment. Every room is beautifully decorated down to the smallest detail and he has all the amenities you could ask for. The location is excellent. It is an easy walk from the train station and a close walk to all the historic sites. Riccardo was so helpful providing us with ideas for restaurants and groceries and was available for questions. We were so impressed - we felt like we were staying at a five star hotel! We would highly suggest Riccardo's home.

Location, location, location. Ricardo's apartment is one of two he has on Airbnb specifically for Airbnb. Located up two flights of stairs with no lift, it is walking distance from the S.M. Novella, Central Market, Duomo, Uffizi, and Accademia. Clean, spacious, with a jacuzzi in one of the two bathrooms, it's just as good if not better than any Florence Hotel. There is a washer, but it was on the fritz at the time of our stay. There's a laundromat with dryer though down the street. There is wifi, but it doesn't work well in the bedrooms, only the living room. With these things fixed, you couldn't ask for a better stay.

Response from Riccardo:
Thanks Donlee for your review, I'm so sorry and also a bit surprised to hear that the wifi didn't work well, you are the first to notice that, as well for the washing machine!! Probably I didn't explain to you well how it works and the instructions are not so clear. Thanks again for your stay. Riccardo
