In front of the apartment is a little patio area with table and chairs and a much coveted parking space.

Wonderful vacation apartment, extremely well located with a parking space that is worth it's weight in gold. Bella Toscana and apartment owners very responsive to a request for service. Dehumidifiers in every room were outstanding. Apartment was naturally cool even in the hottest part of the day. The piazza in easy walking distance with the ice cream store, multitude of restaurants and bars and historic buildings.Lived in Italy for 5 years which gave us an even greater appreciation of just how great this apartment and location was.
