Staying at Elena's home was a fantastic way to start our journey in Florence! Elena was very welcoming and had perfect suggestions on places to eat and see.
The home was gorgeous, tidy and in a great area. We would 100% stay here again, and recommend it to anyone looking for a real Florence experience.
Thank you Elena!
Elena is great! She prepared a map with highlight of all the places and detail description printed in word!
She keep waiting for us for almost 1 hour and told us all the things that we should know to enjoy the city in a better way.
We've tried most of things she recommended and they were all fantastic!
Location of the apartment is good, every attractive spot is in walking distance, the neighborhood is not so commercial that you can live like a Florence people！
This is an easy one. It shouldn't even be subject of discussion whether you'll stay here or not. There couldn't be a more charming city, a more beautiful home, or a more lovely host. We hope to come back here someday to try all the recommendations Elena gave us that we missed this time, because every single one of those we did do were spot on. The apartment is perfect, decorated with great taste, it has everything you need and it feels like home the second you walk in there. Location is even better: the nicest part of florence (in our opinion) and the central location (and the great weather) allowed us to do everything by foot. They do hurt now, our feet, but we've seen everything! Do yourselves a favor and visit florence, and when you do, stay at Elena's. Ciao!
Elena is one of the most amazing host we have ever encountered through Airbnb! She speaks very fluent English and she's very very enthusiastic and thoughtful. She recommended to us the main places of interests in Florence and highlighted them on the map one by one. She even prepared a very detail list of recitative restaurants that proved to be fantastic!!!Elena's flat is just 200 meters to the old bridge and no more than 10min walking distance to Piazzale Michelangelo where people enjoy the sunset and overlook the whole Florence city. The location can't be better. The pictures on Airbnb show exactly what the flat looks like: very cozy, comfortable and clean. It feels like staying at home!! We STRONGLY recommend this flat, which will be the best choice when traveling in Florence!

About the Host, Elena
Ciao a tutti, sono Elena. Mi piace il cinema, il teatro, la neve, la primavera, cucinare e... pigroneggiare a casa! Adoro gli animali e vivo con due splendidi gatti. Quando viaggio mi piace trovare disponibilità, ospitalità ma anche discrezione. E un luogo pulito e accogliente. Questo è esattamente quello che cerco di dare ai miei ospiti.
