I lived in Florence for over sixteen years and Santo Spirito is by far one of the loveliest areas that I managed to find. The street of Santo Spirito is one of Florence's finest with great boutique jewelers, lovely wine bars and restaurants, and marvelous Palazzi now serving as private offices for companies such as Antinori and Frescobaldi.
I used to live in this apartment for a year until I moved just across the street as a studio space came available next to my partners.
Federica, the landlord, became a dear friend during my stay and she asked me when I left if I would continue to fill the apartment with tenants for her- and so this is what I do.
Federica lives just above the apartment and she does her utmost to accommodate those who come to rent her place. You couldn't find a better place to stay in Florence. Her elderly parents live just below the apartment and they too are wonderfully accommodating and their English is good.
I currently live between Canada and Italy and continue to help Federica with all of the apartment arrangements and communications.
