Oltrano neighborhood, south of the Arno river will give you the sense of rustic , old Florence. You will discover quiet and characteristic lanes where high stone walls hides private gardens. Oltrarno is an interesting melting pot of traditional craftspeople, immigrants, retired people and yuppies. Artisan shops will welcome you: you will find furnitures, jewelry, leather items and picture frames in a century old style.

We really enjoyed our stay here! The flat is really easy to find and perfect located, 10mins walking from the major touristic attractions. The room was clean and the bathroom too, Emiliano was really kind with us and really helpful.
I definetely reccomend to stay in his place.
A great experience. Emiliano arranged for his friend to greet us. Everything we needed to know was laid out and all questions answered by both her and Emiliano- Very professional, making you feel like a true guest. We were even given a bottle of wine as well, a very nice touch. The location was great for getting away from the tourist hustle and bustle, but still close to all museums, train station, ect. Would definitely recommend.
Thanks, everything was very nice. The place is near everything, buses are near, and there is the best gelatto of the world very near. Emiliano was very nice with us.
Beautiful room. Perfect location. Emiliano and his family makes us feel like home. Next time in Firenze sure will be back with them

About the Host, Emiliano E Giacomo
Ciao a tutti!
Sono Emiliano e abito a Firenze, città che non vedo l´ora di mostrarvi.
Adoro cucinare e leggere. Sono una persona estroversa che adora fare nuove (website hidden) e mio fratello Giacomo affittiamo le nostre stanze quando non siamo a Firenze perchè tutti e due studiamo all'estero. Dato che la nonna non e' esperta di informatica le diamo una mano gestendo anche il suo appartamento.
Quando noi non ci siamo mia mamma vi darà il benvenuto!
Che altro dirvi.. vi aspetto a Firenze! :)
