Beautiful apartment in the heart of Florence. The host, Maria, was amazing – really, really friendly, she only spoke Italian, but it was not a slightest problem; her intonations when she was chatting around offering us a cup of coffee on the arrival and showing us to the room, the whole atmosphere, her attitude, made us feel really welcome and relaxed. The apartment is just 2 minutes walk to St.Maria del Fiore, but at the same time very quiet. Inside there is a long corridor with dark wooden floors and side rooms, impeccably clean and very stylish, with “Italian” atmosphere. The kitchen is closed except for breakfast time, but guests have a tea pot, teabags and cups at their disposal 24h. Dear Maria, thank you very, very much, it was beautiful to stay with you! Please note that the apartment really IS in the 4th floor with no elevator; for us it was OK, but keep that in mind when you think about getting there with your luggage etc.
