Communication was excellent before and after our arrival. Sophia met us at the apartment and gave us a warm welcome. The location is excellent and an easy walk to most attractions. The terrace is lovely and we enjoyed morning coffee outside.

Rita was so super sweet and made us feel extremely welcome! The place was beautiful and so clean, showers are small but was fine for us. The courtyard is just beautiful and we had prosecco and snacks out there at the end of the day was divine. The only negative for us was the wifi was extremely slow and only worked kind of well near the front door. This caused us some frustrations, as travellers we wanted to book things and research different options which made it difficult. Overall - I would recommend Rita's place to everyone :)

We had a fantastic experience staying here for 3 nights. Rita arranged for an early check in for us due to our international flight arriving at 10am. She met us at the apartment and was a very gracious host. We loved the neighborhood and really felt like locals. The apartment was quiet and comfortable with a great garden. Would recommend to others. Thank you!

We absolutely loved our stay at Rita and Gisella's apartment. The location is ideal, close to groceries and restaurants as well as the Duomo, Bargello and other typical sights of interest. The apartment itself is even better than the photos show. Spacious living area and outdoor space like an oasis, even when we were there in March. The kitchen was equipped and our family (2 adults, 3 children) had plenty of room each morning before exploring Florence and each evening cooking dinner for ourselves. Laundry (with a DRYER!) was a life saver in the middle of an Italy itinerary for our family of 5. The hosts were in constant contact and made us feel at home. We would absolutely stay here again our next time in Florence!

Siamo due amiche che hanno deciso di lavorare insieme per i tanti punti in comune che abbiamo.
Ci piacciono molto le relazioni quindi l'ospitalità. Siamo molto creative e ci piace ricilclare vecchi oggetti per trasformarli in oggetti particolari. Adoriamo viaggiare e ogni anno ci concediamo un breve viaggetto con le amiche ;-) Il nostro vocabolo preferito è "INSOLITO" forse perchè ci piace l'unicità ;-) ma la cosa che ci piace più di tutto, è fare tutto questo divertendoci!!!
Vi aspettiamo presto!!
