About Gaia Vitolo

We are a family with two children. My job is tailoring and my partner is a painter. After an experience in New York we decided to return to our home town, Bologna, even if the trip and the discovery of new land have never left us.

Gaia Vitolo purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Gaia Vitolo chose Historic Center

The house was bought by my family because we are in love with the beauties and history of our country and the location of this accommodation are truly irresistible, in the heart of the vibrant city.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment keeps the typical characteristics of a Florentine dwelling, it is extremely quiet and it allows you to rest peacefully after long and intense walks and tours during the day.

Perfect place to stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5

Gaia and Stefano were so helpful with everything and the apartment was beautiful! It had all the amenities we could possibly need and is in a perfect location for exploring the city. Gaia answered my many questions very quickly and gave us some excellent recommendations. Stefano greeted us warmly and made sure we had everything we needed, including restaurant suggestions and reservations. We rented this apartment and another of Gaia's in the same because we had a lathe party and it worked out perfectly for us. I would recommend this apartment to anyone traveling in Florence!

Great Apartment - Superb Location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for our family of 5. Short walk from the train and centrally located in the heart of Florence. Easy walking distance to Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi, Accademia, etc. Beautiful apartment outfitted with all the basic amenities you need. Air conditioning was much appreciated in the middle of July! We highly recommend it and would stay again!

Great Location and Amenities!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful apartment in Florence July 7-9. There were 5 of us and the accommodations were wonderful! There was a bedroom with 2 single beds and a bathroom, a queen bedroom with a bathroom and a loft space with a queen pullout (that my son said was so comfortable!) and an additional bathroom. The living/dining area was spacious and tastefully decorated! We didn't use the kitchen but it was well equipped. The best amenity had to be the washing machine....after 7 days in Rome it was much needed and appreciated! Stephano was wonderful and all the information that Gaia provided prior to our arrival was very helpful! Thank you for making our stay memorable!!

Fantastic Apartment and Location

Our family of 7 all just loved this charming apartment in a great location in Florence! The apartment is spacious, clean, and comfortable and has great wi-fi. It's in a perfect location and very easy for us to walk to all of the sites, restaurants and shopping. Gaia was a wonderful host for our stay in Florence. The apartment exceeded our expectations and we would stay there again!

Wow! We Loved This Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The photos, while great, don't do it justice. This is a wonderful place to stay in the heart of Florence. So grand and elegant! Beautifully furnished, stocked with high-end bath products, huge windows, A/C, all the kitchen gadgets you'd need. Beds are super comfortable. Everything was spotless. Communications with Gaia were perfect -- so fast, so responsive. Short walks to the Duomo, the Uffizi, the main train station, the river, all the sights. The only drawback was that eventually we had to leave.

Great location, wonderful apartment, roomy, comfortable and cool

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect apartment for a family. It is clean, comfortable and perfectly located by the Arno River and close to all the cultural sites. We had plenty of room and felt right at home in this old world style apartment with an interior that looked like an Italian villa. The AC worked well, the beds were soft and the several bathrooms suited our family's needs. We definitely recommend this for your home away from home.

Vigna Nuova street, one of the main streets of the centre Florence, located in a rich and attractive neighbourhood. This street is really interesting, since it houses various renowned and exclusive boutique brands. In the same street you can find amazing examples of architecture like Palazzo Rucellai designed by the multi-faceted Renaissance figure, Leon Battista Alberti. The same palace that houses the apartments, a beautiful example of noble architecture of the seventeenth century.
