My husband and I are from Bolton Connecticut, USA. We are celebrating our retirement from teaching by taking a month vacation in Italy. The cruise from Bari will be at the start of our vacation with a short stay in Rome so my husband can visit his mother's home town. We will also be spending about two weeks in Florence. We want to stay in small apartments like yours rather than hotels. We are hoping to do as much exploring of your area as we can before we leave for the cruise. Please consider our request to stay at your apartment.
