Perfectly situated apartment in residential Florence, but manageable (~ 2 km) walk to historic sites on both sides of the Arno. Well-appointed flat with nice view of river, and close to grocery for everyday needs and locals' restaurants for great meals. (Nary a tourist in sight!) Apartment is on a main street so there is some noise, but nothing out of the ordinary for a big city. Underground parking takes some getting used to, but easy in/out after first time. Ilaria was great help setting up the visit, and Andrea was a wonderful host. We'd book again on a trip to Florence, and would recommend to others looking for an apartment in this beautiful city.
