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 Santa Maria Novella

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 Location - Wonderful Hosts - Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

I will be brief since many reviews have covered this apartment so well.

Location - Perfect "home base" for a Florence stay. Extremely close to everything without being in the middle of the densest tourist areas. We loved the location.

Accommodations - The place is very comfortable. Loved sitting inside with the windows open enjoying the sounds of the city. I thought the beds were very comfortable and we slept well. The apartment has a lot of charm - the pictures describe it perfectly.

Hospitality - The owner and the people who care for you during your stay are great. Very accommodating and always available. We appreciated them very much.

If we went back to Florence - which we would love to do - we'd look no further than this particular apartment or another by he same owner. Thanks for everything, our stay was excellent!!

Fantastic apartment; great location!

  • 5 of 5

One of the nicest apartments we’ve experienced - literally the best location just steps from boutique shopping, fantastic restaurants, the ponteveccio. The apartment contains high end finishes along with very comfortable beds - always important when on a marathon 16 day italy trip. We will be back for sure....

Loved our stay in Florence!

  • 4 of 5

Location and accommodation was great for my family of seven. Within walking distance to everything in the city center. Plenty of space to hang out in the unit and relax. Homeowners are great and check in/out was very easy. Kitchen is very small, but if you’re not planning on making a large meal this isn’t an issue.

This is a wonderful place to stay in Florence.

  • 5 of 5

Conveniently located near tourist attractions, restaurants, grocery and train station. We stayed two weeks and used this as a travel hub for several day trips. Owners are wonderful and very helpful. They have a shop a few doors down in case help is needed. They provided great recommendations and hints about the area. We would stay there again next time in Florence.

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

I went there with my wife, mother-in-law and three teenagers, and we all loved it. Great central location that is walking distance to the main sites, the train/bus station, and the modern opera house. Building is 400+ years old with lots of character, and the apartment itself is very comfortable with all the modern amenities and comforts that you will need. Having three full bathrooms was a big, big plus. No problems with heater, hot water or wifi. Kitchen had everything we needed. Overall, this is a wonderful place to stay in Florence and I highly recommend it. Thank you Gaia.

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.
