About Elisabetta

I’m a freelance.

Elisabetta purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Elisabetta chose Florence

This apartment has always been property of my family. I live in the same neighbourhood, few metres away. I know well this area full of bars and restaurants, so you can enjoy a pleasant stay.

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is a typical old Florentine building, very essential and high-ceilinged: the roof windows make the house very bright and let you enjoy a wonderful view of the Duomo and the Giotto’s bell tower.

Excellent stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5

We had a very comfortable stay at this apartment. Walking distance to all the major city centre attractions. The apartment was clean, had all the amenities we needed. Central air was very nice as it was quite warm in Florence in May. The owner Elisabetta was very attentive and quick to respond. I would highly recommend this apartment. Nancy

Great apartment, large and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment with my wife and two teenage daughters in june 2017 and had a great time in Florence! It is on the 3rd floor with no elevator. It has well functional AC's thru out the house and Wifi works great! It comes with a small balcony. There are nearby shops, stores and mini marts for your daily needs. 15 min walk from center of most of the tourist activities. It is near a busy bus station but we did not hear any noise coming into the apartment. If you drive into Florence, there is a public parking 15min walking distance away from this building ( at $10/nt) which is a great deal compared to other parking lots nearby. Gisela and her son were wonderful people and helped us with most of our needs. I recommend this place for sure and hope to be back soon! Thank you Gisela!

Great location, great host.

  • 5 of 5

Elisabetta was very welcoming. The best thing about this place was the location. We were able to walk there from the train station, no need for a taxi. Centrally located and was literally around the corner from the Galleria Dell'Accademia and a few minutes walk to the Duomo. It was clean and had everything we needed. We enjoyed the cafe on the corner for morning pastries and cappuccino.

Wonderful location

  • 4 of 5

It was a great location from which to see Florence. It was both close to the Duomo and far enough away to reduce crowds and noise at night. Located on San Marcos Square it was vibrant and close to many restaurants. Bus stop and taxi stand are both located on the square. I can't say enough about how nice and helpful the owner, Elizabetta, was and how she and her son told us about apartment, the area, and made us feel at home. It was a lovely stay in a very nice and spacious apartment. Another great homeaway find.

Perfect Florence visit

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here April 2015 and I apologize for not reviewing sooner! Meraviglioso!!!! My husband and I and our 2 children (13 & 11) stayed at this perfect apartment while visiting our daughter studying abroad. Close proximity to everything. No uber; no taxis needed. Everything is walking distance to this apartment. The best kept secret...the restaurant right below us. Just devine.

Florence visit

  • 5 of 5

This property was as advertised, central to all museums and attractions, It was adjacent to a bus line, taxi stand, grocery store, coffee shops, within walking distance of everywhere. The air-conditioning save us in a September heat wave. The moon was in view over the Duomo out the living area window.

The apartment overlooks a crowded square full of bars, restaurants and pastry shops in the heart of the cirty, few metres away from the Gallery of the Academy with the Michelangelo’s David, the San Marco Museum with the works of Beato Angelico and other attractions. The apartment is near all the main bus stops, so you can get anywhere in the city centre or on the outskirts of the town (Fiesole or the Piazzale Michelangelo). Few metres away from the apartment there is an excellent restaurant, L’Accademia, where you can enjoy the best dishes of the Italian cookery.
