This apartment took our breath away. Our family was thrilled to share in the history this apartment gave us. It's in a fantastic central area in Santa Croce, within walking distance to all major sites, restaurants and shopping. The apartment had all the conveniences of home with an Italian living flare. We had all our breakfasts and a few dinners in and truly enjoyed our time to discuss and reflect on our adventures.
Our greeter was on time to meet us with a great welcome. She was very pleasant and helpful. it was a seamless check-in and out, very professional but relaxed.
We would recommend this apartment and Italy Perfect to family and friends. And we will stay here when our travels bring us back to Florence.
