Great experience.

Lovely apartment. Great location within walking distance of everything in the city, including the Duomo, Uffizi, and many churches. It's located minutes from many restaurants and eateries as well. The apartment itself is very charming with a lovely patio. Great space to stay in and hang out. There's even a cat that roams the courtyard of the building who likes to welcome you home. The staff were also so accommodating. They gave so many recommendations for things to do not only around the city but around the entire Tuscany area. Would definitely stay with the company again. Great experience.

Everything is perfect!

We stayed at Diana's place for three nights. This apartment is amazing, the decoration, the cleanness, the location, etc. everything is perfect. Diana prepared every single detail that we would need. Even though there is no elevator, the stairs are very wide and not difficult to climb at all. There are two 85 year old grandparents in our group. They have no trouble to climb the stairs. I would definitely stay here again if I go to Florence.

Wonderful authentic apartment

Chris / Oct, 2018

Wonderful authentic Florentine apartment; you feel like you are staying at your Italian Grandmother's flat (in a good way!). Wonderful quirky space with rooftop terrace, and beautiful antiques filled living spaces. A warm and homey space to retreat from the bustle of Florence. Wonderful central location, and very helpful owner who has a free i phone loaded with great ideas and cell/internet access. Thank you Diana!

Cats, brilliant rooftop balcony and quirky historic features

Gordon, USA / Oct, 2018

Diana's place makes sure you continue the experience of being in Florence. It seeps with historic quirkiness that you need to see and feel to understand. Those tight streets and beautiful corner awnings are part of the feel you get inside. Diana's place has more space than we could utilise but we did appreciate it. Also, for the cat lovers within the Air BnB community you may be frequented by one of Diana's gorgeous cats. One unusual aspect of the place is that Diana has three sets of doors to access the apartment. You have the huge double door to the street, then 62 steps to a door into a shared corridor that has a further door into the apartment. That shared corridor has two offices Diana has for her businesses. I believe this is a good aspect of the apartment as Diana and her team are happy to help. Once you are established, you feel completely independent and comfortable to enjoy the apartment including the brilliant rooftop balcony and quirky historic features.

This place is amazing.

This place is amazing. I’ve used Airbnb 8 times this year, 2018, and this has been the best place yet. The apartment is Huge! The apartment is furnished and decorated with antiques and feels like a very classic Italian apartment. The bedrooms are big, the terrazzo is large and has two different entrances. The host is close by and was very attentive to our needs. She even gave us some frozen asparagus for my grandmas feet that were swollen from walking around Florence all day. Diana and her team went way beyond to make sure our stay was amazing. It’s close to everything too. The train station is a 20 minute walk however everything else is about a 5 to 10 minute walk. You will not find a better place or host for your visit to Florence. Diana, we will be back

A charming apartment

Amy / Jul, 2018

The charming apartment was as pictured but more spacious than we anticipated - plenty of room for our family of 6. We enjoyed meals on the terrace and having a short-walk access to all the city has to offer. Diana providing amazing "local" suggestions once we arrived as well as in the thorough binder provided in the apartment. Thank you, Diana, for enhancing our amazing trip to Florence!

A word to the wise

Charles, Canada / Jul, 2017

Diana is a great host. Greeted us on arrival. Made a proper introduction of the apartment so that we all knew where everything was. The location is incredible. Close to the Uffizi, ponte vecchio and the duomo. There are plenty of little restaurants in the neighbourhood to choose from. A word to the wise. This apartment is in a historical building in a very busy area. Therefore do not expect air conditioning, meaning you may have to sleep with the windows open for airflow. There a lots of people in the piazza nearby sometimes till the early morning hours. Therefore bring some earplugs IF you're a light sleeper. If not you'll be fine. The location is fabulous since you can walk to pretty much everything important in under 15 minutes. Pre arrange your parking ahead of time as well as your drive into the city because the apartment is in a reduced circulation neighbourhood and you risk an expensive traffic ticket if you don't accordingly. @abnb

Værten er meget sød

Lejligheden ligger helt rigtigt centralt og er en dejlig lejlighed at holde ferie i. Værten er meget sød og imødekommende og hjælpsom. @airbnb

Beautifully decorated rooms

Mimi, USA / May, 2017

This is a stunning apartment! We lived the beautifully decorated rooms, the terrace, and the friendly cat we saw our first day. Also, the kitchen & laundry are very convenient. Highly recommended! @abnb
