“Vespucci in heart of Florence, IT”
Vespucci in Florence is wonderful. We loved staying in Vespucci in late September '14. We had warm weather and we were able to walk everywhere. There are nice neighborhood restaurants close by and a wonderful Cafe across the street that we went to everyday for breakfast. The train station is close also and we did take two side trips by train to Bologna (highly recommended) and by bus to Siena. In Florence seek out Mario's Trattatoria near the market for lunch. It is the best and at unbelievable prices. The apartment was very nice, clean and comfortable. Having a 2 Br and 2 BA for two couples was great (one w TWIN beds). Cynthia, the owner next door, was wonderful. When the water heater was out for 3 days, she allowed us to shower at her apartment. She also is a great resource of the local area for restaurants!

“Wonderful in every way”
This apartment was spacious, sparkling clean, well-equipped, in a great location, and quite large. We were impressed that it had a washing machine and even a dishwasher. All detergents, etc., were provided. It is a block from the river, a few minutes from the tram line and a large park, and a reasonable walk to some attractions including the train station. The owner (a bilingual american) lives nearby and was happy to help us when needed. She also had a mobile phone available for our use. Her orientation of how things worked in the apartment was concise, clear, and valuable. We loved being there so highly recommend it.
Response from the manager Thank you for your lovely feedback, we are happy you enjoyed your stay in Florence. The Italy Perfect Team.
“5 Stars are not enough!!!”
First, unfortunately the elevator went out the day before we arrived. The host was extremely apologetic and profusely voiced her dismay. The positive, it helped work off the pasta, wine and desserts. We cannot compliment the host or Lisa at Italy Perfect adequately. They were professional, promptly responded to emails and questions, the best "Introduction Package" I have encountered in our global travels, were proactive in providing information needed prior to travel, etc. The accommodations were clean, attractive and comfortable. A great value for the money. The location was even better than anticipated. Trains and buses were one block away, and best of all the last stop on the bus route. No matter where we got on we just went to the last stop and got off. Recommend you book a cooking class, a highlight of our three week trip. Hit all the "tourist sites" especially Galileo's museum, and go to Michelangelo's plaza that overlooks the city. Again, this apartment was a true value, the host delightful and the location perfect. Book early or you will lose the opportunity!!!

“Lovely apartment in Florence”
Vespucci apartment: April/ May 2013 What a gem of an apartment! We are two couples who stayed in Vespucci for four weeks in april/ May. Vespucci is exactly as described on the Italy Perfect website, in a very pleasant and quiet area a good 20 minute walk along the arno to the Ponte Vecchio. After a busy tourist day the walk was often a welcome interlude. To stay in Vespucci is to live in a comfortable family home. The apartment is very spacious, light and airy, with two large bedrooms and two well fitted modern bathrooms. The beds are comfortable and there are plenty of quality towels. The kitchen is excellent with a good sized refrigerator, and up to date dishwasher and washing machine. There is a comprehensive selection of cooking equipment, including an excellent range of pots and pans and (hooray!) quality knives. In fact, the kitchen was so user friendly that on most evenings, we chose to cook at home and eat in our very comfortable living /dining room. We did however discover some good local restaurants, including Giovanni's, Cambi and Baldini. The Cafe al Communale opposite the apartment was very friendly and great for a lunch or an evening drink. There is a good range of shops in close by: a small supermarket, very good butcher, deli, tabacchi and post office among others. We did however often choose to walk home via Borgo Ognissanti and buy food and wine from the smaller family run shops and bakeries. The owners of the apartment live across the hallway and while not intrusive are available for help and advice. Our greeter was very welcoming and gave us a thorough introduction to the apartment. We really appreciated her attention to detail: maps, guide books, cards for local restaurants, and the provision of a cell phone for guest use. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Vespucci and booking through Italy Perfect was a positive experience - helpful, efficient and responsive to every request.

“A Great Location and Very Comfortable!”
Four of us (my wife, son, his wife, and I) spent a week in Florence in mid-February. Our visit was immeasurably enhanced by our renting "Vespucci." We found the apartment spacious, clean, and possessing of all the conveniences we needed, including a great kitchen and internet. The location was perfect for us--just a block from the arno and a 15-minute walk to the historic center of town. Moreover, the owners (Cynthia and Roberto) live on the same floor and were there to answer any questions we had. Not only will I certainly recommend the apartment to friends and family, but my wife and I will certainly stay there again when we return to beautiful Firenze. Sincerely, Gerry and anne Columbus, Ohio USa
Response from the manager Thank you very much! We so appreciate your kind words and we hope to welcome you back again. Thank you from the Italy Perfect team.
“Excellent stay ! Loved the professionalism of the company and ow”
Italy Perfect was so organized and professional. Loved how they did everything and full confidence in the Company. We went to Rome and Venice and had I known about them before I booked the others I would have stayed in all of their managed apts. The apt. was beautiful. Spacious and very clean. Nice kitchen and bedrooms, with Wi-fi. The owners were straight across the hall and were there if anything was needed. The locations was very quiet and in a nice neighborhood. A cafe was located right across the street with friendly owners and good food. This apt is located away from the center of Florence, about 25 minute walk. It was close to the Ponte Vecchio Bridge (10 min walk) and about 10 minutes from the train station by Taxi. Had a wonderful stay and again the overall organization of the Company as well as the owners was great. I would stay with them again no doubt.
Response from the manager Thank you, we look forward to welcoming you back. The Italy Perfect Team.
We found the Vespucci apartment to be as advertised: neat, clean, conveniently located to the city center, train station, shopping, etc. The local restaurants, shopping, museums, historical sites and central location for visiting other parts of Tuscany made Florence one of our favorite stops. If you're looking for something different to do, try a one day cooking class, it's so much fun. Our host/greeter, Cynthia, also helped make our stay truly enjoyable by always being available to answer questions or provide essential information about the local area. We would certainly recommend Italy Perfect and specifically the Vespucci apartment to anyone looking to visit Florence. If you are thinking of renting a car and driving you should reconsider. The Ztls (limited traffic zones} are virtually impossible to avoid and if you enter one without the proper authorization for your vehicle, you can expect to receive a rather expensive ticket.
“Hope to return to this wonderful centrally located apartment!”
We would recommend this beautiful apartment to anyone going to Florence! The host and hostess that showed us around were available almost anytime and were a wealth of knowledge. The lady is from the US and it was nice to be able to speak English. Her husband was a wonderful gentleman and very helpful as well. They greeted us with a bowl of fruit and took a great deal of time explaining everything and helping us to be sure we had reservations where we wanted to go and made an excellent suggestion where to eat. We never needed a cab, we were able to walk everywhere. Even walking back to the apartment late at night we felt very safe since it is in a very safe neighborhood. Having a washer was wonderful, and there was even laundry soap for us to use.We had stayed in a tiny hotel room in Pisa the week before, so when we walked into the Vespucci apartment we could not believe how Huge it was. So bright, airy, clean, spacious, beautiful and right off the arno River close to everything. Everything was actually much more than we had hoped for. We Loved the apartment as well as the host couple.
“Beat the expectations”
Our stay at Vespucci apartment was that rare experience, one which was even better than expected. There was a rather charming view from the living room which the photographs did not capture. On our arrival we had a problem with our internet connectivity, which both owners worked diligently--and successfully--to correct. They filled us in, as well, with information on local stores, current events, and neighborhood restaurants, of which there were many. We loved the location of the apartment, which provided us with an oasis of peace, away from the crowds, just an easy 15 minute walk from the center of town. Indeed, we frequently found ourselves eager to get "home" after a day of sight-seeing, before setting out again for dinner. Just a great experience.
Response from the manager So pleased you enjoyed your experience. Grazie! Lisa at ItalyPerfect.com
“Vespucci - outstanding apartment!”
In a word, Vespucci was wonderful! This was about our 6th or 7th rental in Europe and it was far and away the best. The apartment itself was terrific - clean and roomy. The location was perfect - nice, safe neighborhood away from the noise, but still within walking distance of everything. Food shopping at Il Centro was very handy and the little Salumeria a block away was very nice. We cooked a number of meals in because of the rainy week, and the kitchen was well-equipped. (The first place we have found really good cooking knives!) The american style coffee maker was nice. Cynthia was a great host - little touches like a cell phone, a bottle of olive oil, and a ride to the train station were very nice. She has also solved the internet problem with Macintosh computers - a connection to a city-wide wi-fi network. We would recommend this apartment and your service to anyone.
