The Space

The apartment is located in the letf side of the river Arno, between Piazza Pitti and Piazza santo Spirito, a very nice area of "Oltrarno" (the other side of the river) this area is is very international and artsy and not much commercial-turistic, it mainteined the old taste of pure Florence with lots of handcrafters and good restaurants, there is open-air market everyday downstairs where you can buy fresh fruits and vegetables and lots of other things. On sundays organic and antiques market. Every historical and turistic attraction is walkin distance max 20 minutes the farest.
From the train station if you walk you can reach my place in about 15-20 minutes, or you can take a bus or taxi (all the detailed informations, directions and address will be available automatically from the web-site after you book the room)
The apartment is at the third floor (not elevator) of a building 500 years old that used to be a convent, now renovated and very confy. I live in the apartment and I am very clean and tidy, (please try to be the same) the bathroom is to shared with me and sometimes with an other roomate.
You can smoke in the room but please at the window.
BREAKFAST IS NOT INCLUDED but you can make it yourself if you like, the kitchen is at your disposal until 10am.

*******************************************

Sheets and towels for each person provided. Free wifi internet connection available, washing machine, microwave.

IF YOU ARRIVE BY CAR: In the center where i live there are restrictions to traffic for not residents, so you would have to leave the car out of that area and find a parking spot there, you can find free ones (good luck with that..) and then walk for 5 minutes to my house, maybe less if you are lucky, or you can also park in a private parking around the block from my house wich cost €20 per 24h. Honestly I will suggest to search for a parking spot out before enter the cameras, other guests have done this way.
Other closer parkings are (payment) at Piazza Della Calza or Piazza Tasso.
I will provide tips and maps of the city and informations about restaurants, bars, places of interest according to your personal taste.

  • Davide was very welcoming and so was the very large room he had waiting for us! He also had maps and books laid out for us that were very useful. He gave us an fantastic recommendation for an incredible nearby restaurant, as well. We would definitely recommend staying with him.

  • My sister and I stayed at Davide's place for 2 nights on our trip to Italy over the last several weeks. We agreed that this place had the best accommodations of the various Airbnb places we stayed at. Davide was very welcoming, helpful, and spoke great English. His place is only 5 min away from the Ponte Vecchio bridge in an ideal location. I would recommend this place to friends traveling to Florence.

  • Great location and space. Firstly the location of Davide's room is outstanding if you are the type of person who likes to be near main attractions but not staying in the expensive tourist areas (usually by the main attractions). You can see the Piazza Santo Spirito from the room which is a great Piazza filled with locals and great restaurants. His place is also about 200 m from a main bus stop area and the Piazza de Pitti.

    The room is very spacious and a nice personal touch besides the wifi is that Davide has a bookshelf with guides and maps about Florence which you can use.

    Overall, the house and bathroom is very clean and Davide was an amazing host!

  • Our stay at Davide's place was pleasant, but even though we did not have
    any peculiar issue with Davide in himself, there were a few important
    problems.
    First, our check-in was a mess. Davide seems to be a very busy person so
    handling a last-minute check-in is not easy with him. You would prefer
    settling it long in advance.
    Secondly, if you are a light sleeper, we wouldn't advise you to rent this
    room. The bed is uncomfortable and, most important, the room is really,
    really noisy at night. The windows may be new but they are thin, weak, and
    a lot of traffic and drunk people yelling at night don't help. We were
    awoken several times each night.
    Other slightly bothersome details : you have to cross the whole apartment
    to go to the bathroom, so it might feel uncomfortable in some conditions.
    There is also a strong smell of incense everywhere in the apartment. Plus,
    be aware of the non-use of the kitchen rule : Florence is expensive and so
    are its restaurants, so not being able to cook in Davide's flat might weigh
    heavy on the scale.

    I think Achille should be more organized when using Airbnb for travelling, my opinion about the experience is on my reference.

  • Our stay at Davide's place was just perfect. He is very nice, the perfect host. The room is very cosy, everything is very clean and we felt just at home, at the moment we have arrived. We would recommend this place anytime and we will come back for sure! Thank you so much for everything!

  • Room as shown on the pictures, quite spacious and looking over the street. Everything according to the description. Davide (email hidden), very helpful and can provide you with lots of materials on Florence (guides, maps etc). Flat is kept clean and feels cosy. Oh, and the location is perfect too, slightly away from the tourist centre but in a very lively neighbourhood. Anyway, great choice for couple of nights in Florence.

  • We really enjoyed staying in Davide's apartment. It was in a great location. Lots of nice restaurants and bars near by and only a short walk to the tourist attractions. The apartment itself is exactly as it is in the pictures. It is very clean, spacious and full of character. We would recommend to anyone visiting the city.
