Landlord/owner Taricisio was terrific! Our luggage was lost and he drove us back to the airport and helped us out by translating and standing up for us with the airlines.
He was always in touch and helpful. He will recommend restaurants and shops if you ask.
It felt as if we had a friend right around the corner.
Apartment was exactly as advertised
Just the right distance for us from the Center. If you have not been to Florence before , it can become very busy, a river of tourists travelling down narrow roadways . so taking a quick bus or 5-7 euros Taxi ride to a quiet neighbourhood apartment made a lot of sense.
Fun neighbourhood to explore , Authentic Italian restaurants and shops.
Walking distance to downtown but better to take the bus because you will probable be doing a lot of walking in the Center.
Supermarket was close enough to easily carry groceries back to apartment.
Not a lot of tourist in the area. Not a lot of English... more
