Interaction with Guests
We welcome our guests with a map of the old town and we introduce them to the city. In our opinion the biggest deal of travel through airbnb is the contact with local people. It's always important the genuine explanation of a local to avoid the tourist traps, know what to see and what to do, discover the hidden gems of the city you can't find in the ordinary guidebook
Our apartment is out of Porta San Frediano: from here every turist interest places are walkable. The area of the old town restricted to cars starts 200 meters far from home. The apartment is in a quiet residential area and here you won't have any discos, pubs or restaurant who works until late with noise or drunk people speaking with laught voice. At the same time we are next to Oltrarno the best district of the city for eating, drinking and looking for local craftwork laboratories. It's the only one district of the old town where leaves local people because next to the Dome or the Uffizi or other part of the old town you'll find only tourist and tourist traps.
Here Florence and its Renaissance is behind every corner: 200 meters far from home you can find the Brancacci chapel with the frescos of Masaccio, ten minutes by walk Palazzo Pitti, the residence of the Medici Family, Ponte Vecchio and Piazza Santo Spirito the cutest square of the city. The Dome is 20 minutes by walk and Piazzale Michelangelo 10 minutes by bus.
