“A PERFECT WEEK”
I am well traveled thru Europe and have had some wonderful experiences. My week at the Memoria may have been the best ever. Our greeter was knowledgable and professionable. The apartment was spectacular. The location was perfect,with a great market just across the bridge. Almost sounds too good to be true. Just see for yourself. While in Florence don't miss the pharmacia (Officina Profumo Farmacia Santa Maria Novella). A place you may not be aware of but a must see.
Response from the manager Thank you, we hope you will be back again soon! The Italy Perfect Team
Memoria was a great 'hideaway' right next to the Oltrano. Having two bedrooms and bathrooms made it easy for my neighbor and I to have our own space. There is a small ( awkward) elevator that gets you up.. The keyed building feels safe and secure. The living room faces out to beautiful views., Ponte Vecchio, the river and Boboli Gardens up the hillside. There is plenty of room to move around in. The kitchen if fully equipped, nothing lacking in any way. We were there for a month and was fully stocked. The washer and dryer are such a convenience, less packing etc. Everything was working well, dishwasher, stove, refridgerator and ice! Beds were comfortable. View was lovely in the evening. We are quite happy with our choice to stay here. It did get a little noisy at the end with street noises and more tourists, it's Florence. Who cares? Isabelle is the best greeter I've come across. She is a wealth of information and happy to share. Bellisima! Best gelato right by the front door!
Response from the manager Thank you very much, we are so happy you enjoyed the wonderful views and your stay at the Memoria apartment. The Italy Perfect Team
“Room with a View”
We had a terrific visit to Florence and the apartment was perfect for our family (2 adults, 2 children) -- it fulfilled all of our needs in comfort and style, and the location could not have been better. When we were in the apartment with the balcony window open, we felt that were were in the thick of Florentine life. But when the window was closed,it was quiet and peaceful. Also, while I'm sure all of your greeters are wonderful, I am so glad that Isabel was our greeter. She was friendly and helpful and responsive and gave us great restaurant suggestions. When we had an issue with the hot water (the cleaning people had turned it off) Isabel responded to my email right away and give me the information I needed to turn on the furnace. She also offered to help me get a cab on the day we left. In small but important ways, she made our trip easier, and therefore more relaxing and enjoyable. We will enthusiastically recommend Italy Perfect to our friends looking for vacation rentals in Italy.
Response from the manager Thank you, we were happy to have you as our guest. Regards, The Italy Perfect Team.
“Better Than advertised”
The apartment was spectacular - better than we had hoped. Great location, elegant (but not over the top) décor, functional kitchen, private bedrooms and excellent air conditioning. My wife and I were travelling with our two children (15 & 12) and were looking for an apartment with a central location and a patio/porch. Memoria was more than we had hoped it would be. Location allowed children to come and go and gave them a real sense of independence. Wonderful restaurants and shopping all around - even great gelato just outside the front door! I cannot recommend this apartment any more strongly - Fantastic for all!!!
Response from the manager Happy that you are happy! The Italy Perfect Team.
“Magnificent view and fantastic location !”
The apartment was exactly 'as advertised'. Spacious (could easily accomodate a group of 6) and well decorated. The terrace was wonderful. A nice place for coffee in the morning or a drink in the evening. Kitchen was very well equipped. The apartment is walking distance from the major sites which is a huge asset. The greeter was absolutely fantastic. She not only checked us in the apartment but she was helpful throughout our stay with everything.
Response from the manager We appreciate your nice feedback and are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Our greeter thanks you too for your nice comments about her. Thank you. Lisa at Italy Perfect.
“An apartment with a view...”
An apartment with a view... Aug 2012 This apartment is centrally located in Florence overlooking the Ponte Vecchio and the Vasari coridor. Just over the bridge is an excellent grocery store . This apartment gives you easy access to the Oltrarno area. A favorite pizzaria (pizzaria giusti) and gelateria (ponte s. trinita) are in this area. The apartment was very comfortable and offers a memorable view of the arno. Our greeter, Francesca, was attentive and responsive. At one point one of the toilets stopped flushing and she quickly rectified the problem. I would recommend this appartment to a friend.
Response from the manager Thank you, we are pleased you enjoyed the apartment. Lisa at Italy Perfect
The apartments was fabulous. From the booking, to pre-arrival instructions, to the warm greeting we received, to the tour books and maps in the apartments, to the internet and aC, location, cleanliness and view, our stay was perfect. We loved it so much we were in no rush to leave in the morning to vista Florence and we surely didn't want to leave at the end of our stay.
Response from the manager Thank you very much for your kind review! So glad you found it fabulous and enjoyed your stay. Please visit us again. The Italy Perfect Team
“12 "Italy Perfect" in Florence in the Memoria apartment”
This is the perfect location for travellers who prefer to leisurely discover Florence on foot. We can attest to the accuracy of pictures and description of this apartment as displayed on the website. Italy Perfect provided a set of excellent guides to apartment living in Florence. Actually, this apartment exceeded our expectations. As foodies, the kitchen was better equipped than anticipated; we actually prepared several meals with fresh ingredients from the Central Market with contributions of Italian essentials (olive oil and balsamic vinegar) from former tenants. These former tenants also provided many tour books which were invaluable during our stay. We can't imagine that there could be a better location than Memoria in Florence. Our greeter, Luca, directed us to a wonderful supermarket (Sapori & Dintorni Conad) just on the other side of the Ponte Vecchio. This market has everything you could possibly need or want. We were also able to walk to many great restaurants from our apartment. Our favorites were Trattoria Camillo, Golden View Open Bar and Restaurant and Bistro Del Mare. We also highly recommend the torta della nonna from Becagli and the schiacciata from Pugi. The torta is a custard filled pastry. The schiacciata is a Tuscan foccacia. Our stay included two day trips out of Florence. One day was on our own via train to Lucca and Pisa; the other day to Cinque Terre with Viator Tours. All the other days, we toured Florence on foot, a great way to work off those great meals we enjoyed. In summary, we highly recommend the Memoria apartment if you are looking for a centrally located air-conditioned, 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment with elevator, full kitchen, washer and dryer, wifi and acceptance of credit card for payment. Please note we spent quite a bit of time searching for an apartment with this set of criteria.
Response from the manager We so appreciate your nice feedback. We hope to welcome you back again! Regards, Lisa at ItalyPerfect
“The best accommodations in Florence”
Spectacular apartment right on the arno apr 2012 The was by far the best accommodations in all of Florence. The Memoria apartment was at the foot of the Ponte Vecchio. Located on the fourh floor, it has panoramic views of the arno River, the Ponte Vecchio and the Boboli Gardens. We were able to visit many areas on foot and took a few day trips to Siena and Lucca. The S.M. Novella Firenze train station was a 10 minute walk and much easier than renting a car. Some of the needed details for a stay would be that there is a grocery store right on the opposite side of the Ponte Vecchio (Conad) for household supplies and the heat should be turned on about 20 minutes before you need hot water for showering. We recommend Tratorria Nella for dinner and if time allows, a tour or the wineries and a cooking class. Shopping at the San Lorenzo market for personal items and at the Mercado Market for food are also a must. Italy Perfect was excellent and a pleasure to work with. We were met by Lucca on our arrival and he went through the apartment thoroughly so that we would be familiar with the accommodations. The apartment was furnished beautifully. The size was excellent and comfortable accommodated four adults. There was a small elevator so one person at a time but very reliable service. Upon leaving Lucca returned to ensure all was in order. Again, very efficient and hassle free. We would certainly refer friends and family to Italy Perfect and have done so already. Thank you for a wonderful vacation.

“Fabulous Florence and surrounding Tuscany treasures”
This is an excellent property especially for a long term rental. Excellent not only in the apartment's appointments but location as well. I had the pleasure of spending the month of June 2011 here with my sister, joined later in the month by one of our friends. With approximately 1,200 square feet,the apartment features 2 separate bedrooms, 2 separate bathrooms, a separate dining room with sofa bed, a lovely light filled living room with veranda overlooking the Ponte Vecchio and the arno river, a full sized kitchen with all of the modern appliances, and bonus, a separate laundry room. While the location could be a little noisy on Friday and Saturday evenings, the double walled windows kept out most of it. Also, each room had its own aC unit which was very appreciated on those warm and humid nights. However, with the location on the river and the cross ventilation, there was always a breeze in the apartment. Back to the location, excellent for walking to all of the sites. The Ufizzi is located next door, the Pitti Palace is just across the bridge, the Piazza Della Signoria, Straw Market, Piazza Republica, Duomo, Baptistry and Bell Tower just a few minutes walk. Our local rental agent, Francesca, was most helpful, friendly and available if we needed anything. And, we enjoyed the weekly cleaning service which made us feel all the more that we were on vacation. The Conad grocery store is located right across the bridge with a wonderful bakery and deli section including ready made items - quick and tasty. I have to say my experience renting with Italy Perfect receives an a+ grade. I found Lisa and Pat to be both responsive and helpful, totally preparing us for practically any or every eventuality from renting a phone, obtaining Euros, restaurant recommendations, etc. I most certainly would choose Italy Perfect again for future travel opportunities and have already recommended them to my friends and family.
Response from the manager So happy you enjoyed your stay. It's a great apartment and location. All of us look forward to "seeing" you again, Marilyn.
