  • My mom and I spend four nights in Francesco's wonderful flat in April. Francesco met us upon arrival and spent a lot of time orienting us to the city, recommending lots of things to do and places to see. He also left us a bottle of wine from his home town and lots of treats in the fridge. The flat is even better than the already amazing photos show. It is very clean, the beds are comfortable, it's quiet and the location is great. We were able to easily walk to all of Florence's main attractions from his flat, but it's in a quieter area of the city. I haven't stayed in very many airbnb places, but it's hard not to think that this is one of the best listings there is- Francesco is great, the flat is great. I can't think of a single flaw. Ciao Francesco! Magnifico! Hope to see you in Edinburgh!

    ...thanks again Lisa ...you are lovely ; ))))) and i'm sure you are the same like Host!! ...i hope see you soon in Edimburgh!

  • We stayed 3 nights at Francesco's apartment and wouldn't be happier. Francesco welcomed us on arrival and gave us lots of information on the neighborhood and good places to visit. He even made a list of recommended restaurants in each quarter which is very handy for people like us who always look for places that locals will dine in. The apartment is literally 5 mins walk from the famous central market. And from there, 2 mins to San Lorenzo church and another min to the Florence cathedral. All the tourist spots are within walking distance from the apartment. We didn't take bus at all in Florence. The apartment is well-equipped with everything you need to cook, clean, wash... And it is comfortable to fit 4 of us.

    Again, thank you for the great stay Francesco :)

  • Francesco is a wonderful host!! He recommended a great lunch spot that we ate at before heading to his apartment. When we got to his apartment, he was nothing but helpful, kind, and FULL of information!! Tasty restaurants, bars, churches, sight-seeing...he knows it all. His apartment was so stylish, clean, and modern. The location was awesome, literally a 5-10 minute walk to the city center. It was everything we needed and more! Thank you, Francesco! We will be back!!

  • Perfect apartment for up to 4 people. Great location and fantastic host. Francesco made it so easy during the whole process and was even waiting there when we arrived. The apartment was fully stocked which made us feel so welcome from the moment he opened the door, even a bottle of chianti was waiting, thanks :)
    The local tips were great and the upstairs neighbour played the piano each afternoon which was beautiful to sit and listen to after a hectic day sightseeing. Highly recommended!!!

    Thank again Michelle!!! all the best for you and your friend!!! : ))))

  • Francesco's apartment was just fantastic. It had everything we expected and a lot more- cosy, bright and in a handy location. His personal attention to details and what was in the apartment made our stay very comfortable and enjoyable. We were most impressed when he met us on arrival and welcomed us into his apartment. His advice and recommendations were most valuable. Yes, Francesco the food on the other side of the river is better and cheaper! We went to Santagostino for the steak Florentino and also tried ZaZa- both excellent places. We did a lot of walking which was really a great way to see your beautiful city. Thank you for your hospitality and for letting us stay at your beautiful apartment. We will certainly recommend your place to our friends who may be visiting Florence.

  • Wonderful stay in Francesco`s apartment. Our stay there was perfect. Francesco took the time to share some the highlights if Florence at our arrival. He is an excellent host. The property is conveniently located close to all the major sights. The kitchen and bathroom are fully equipped, everything we needed was there. By far the best place we stayed in Italy during our journey. Thank you again for being such a good host.
