Thanksgiving in Florence

  • 4 of 5

I will echo many of the reviews on Rita's apartment.  

It is a great alternative to staying in a hotel! Everything from the initial deposit to being greeted by Rita upon arrival went smoothly.  Emails were returned in a timely fashion, and any question answered. We were joined by our two adult children, which was a little tight, but it certainly worked.   We were looking for a place we could use as a home base, where we would come and go. The location made walking to museums, restaurants, and the open markets convenient.

 I recommend this apt for anyone looking for a resonably priced, well located place to call your home away from home. It is also within walking minutes from the Termini for those wanting to venture by train to other areas of interest in Italy.

We had a wonderful stay in Florence. Rita's apartment was in such a great location to all of the attractions that you would ever need to see in Florence. I stayed with my son, so although the apartment is a little small, it was fine for the two of us. If you are a light sleeper it may be a little hard to sleep because of the restaurant across the street from the apartment. It turns into a night club after dinner and stays open until at least 3am playing music. The only night that it closed early was on Sunday. Rita was kind enough to provide us with a bottle of wine and some pasta when we arrived as well as being available for any questions that we might have about the area. We came to Florence by train and found the apartment easy to locate from the station. Thank you again Rita!

Owner's Response: Hi Michael, Thank you for writing your comments. Anyhow if you read the many beautiful reviews I got from all my renters you will see they were all very happy about the apartment and location, and nobody complained about noise at night, so I was surprised to read your comments. Actually there is no restaurant/night club in front of the apartment, just a nice coffee/wine bar on the other side of the square where they make some music inside, not outside. Anyhow I am glad that, as you also told me before leaving, you enjoyed my apartment, the location and beautiful Florence. Hope to see you again, ciao, Rita

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

I found this apt while searching for alternatives to staying in a hotel while my son and I visted Florence. The apt was perfect for our 5 night stay. We were looking for a place we could call home, come and go from, that was within walking distance to everything. While that seemed a tall order, we found it in this apt. It was small but cozy and since we did not plan to spend much time sitting around, it met all of our critera. In addition to being within 10 - 15 minutes walking distance to all of the sites, it was as it says in a very nice location, with stores and wonderful restaurants just around the corner. Rita the owner was wonderful and very helpful. I recommend this apt for anyone looking for a resonably priced, well located place to call your home away from home. It is also only 10 walking minutes from the Termini for those wanting to venture by train to other areas of interest in Italy.

Brancacci Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment in great location. Easy walk to train station, Ponte Vecchio bridge and all Florence sights. There are several restaurants, stores, laundry and church right outside the door. The area is very safe and local, not in the tourist zone. Apartment has everything you need and Rita is very nice and helpful. Thanks for a wonderful week in Florence!!

Wonderful Rita

  • 5 of 5

I had the nicest time at this apartment which is within walking distance from all the main sights, Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti and all the others.

It is a very nicely laid apartment, with a charming bedroom at the top of the spiral staircase.

The sitting room is well lighted  with the big window and nicely decorated, and the kitchen is spacious and beautiful.  

The location is very good with a lot of nice restaurants and less tourists than on the other side of the river.

Rita is very nice and helpful, spicks  good English, and gave us many good tips.

Perfect place to stay in Florence!

  • 5 of 5

I had the best time staying at this apartment. It is perfect for visiting Florence; so close to everything you want to see and do but, far enough away that you are not in the middle of the touristy areas. It was a great place to come back to after a long day of sightseeing. Rita is very friendly and helpful and the apartment is clean and well taken care of. There are a few really great places to eat nearby especially NapoLeone and Dante. Next time I am in Florence, I will definitely want to stay here again. Thanks Rita!
