Truly amazing place. Very clean close to all services and walking distance to all the major attractions. Giovanna and Alice were extremely helpful gave us great tips. A quiet clean place (no mosquitoes and no sewage smell, I had read so much about this problem). Book without a worry and spend a great time in Florence. I would certainly highly recommend this place.

We had a lovely stay at Giovanna's place, her and Alice were very hospitable. Having a light breakfast laid on is a nice touch :) The room suited our needs and the bathroom was spotlessly clean. The apartment is well located, with easy access to all the main sites and some nice places to eat nearby. Highly recommended!

Giovanna and Alice's home was beautiful and their hospitality was unbeatable. They both greeted us and showed us the apartment. There's a cute terrace that's perfect for morning tea or coffee. Every morning, there was a little breakfast with pastries, jams, and teas. It was about a 5-8 minute walk to the Duomo, and about 15 minutes to the Arno. Though the apartment is close to everything, it's completely silent at night. We never heard road noise or people in the streets. It was nice to be centrally located with a quiet place to sleep. The space was pristine in it's cleanliness. We would highly recommend and love to stay again next time!

Alice and Gio's place was great! The room is a good size and the bathroom is practically brand new. Gio's hospitality while Alice was out of town was great and the wonderful do-it-yourself breakfast was greatly appreciated. The home is beautiful and we loved sitting out on the porch for a bit relaxing. Alice was a pleasure to chat with and when sending a message she was quick to respond. We'd love to come back!

Our best experience with air BnB ever ! Our stay in this super- nice apartment went beyond our hopes... The apartment is really well located (10-15min walk from the cathedral and in a quiet area of the city), cozy, big and beautiful as well. Air conditioning is also appreciated for the hot temperatures in Firenze during summer and offers We enjoyed our room and our private bathroom, which were very cleaned and spacious. Every morning we had breakfast (which is included in the price) composed of fruits, bread, biscuits, jam, tea, coffee, and little pastries like croissant. Perfect to begin the day ! But the most positive point about our stay was the very warm welcome we had from Giovanna and her daughter Alice. We had nice little conversations with Giovanna, who is a lovely and friendly host. Alice speaks well English, which is practical for communication. We wish we stayed longer and we will definitely come back if we get the chance to visit Firenze again. We thank you both for our marvellous stay! Et pour les francophones... Ce séjour dans l'appartement de Giovanna et Alice fut notre meilleure expérience air BnB! L'appartement combine de nombreux points positifs : parfaite localisation (à 10/15mim de marche de la cathédrale), une terrasse offrant une vue sur une court verdoyante et il offre un espace spacieux, lumineux et très propre. La climatisation est également appréciée pour les hautes températures d'été en Toscane . Nous avons également apprécié notre chambre, qui spacieuse, dispose d'espaces de rangement. Enfin la salle de bain privée est très moderne et constitue un vrai plus! Chaque matin nous bénéficions d'un petit déjeuner copieux. Mais c'est avant tout l'accueil chaleureux de Giovanna et sa fille Alice qui nous ont touché. Giovanna est une hôte remarquable et nous avons grandement apprécié sa gentillesse. Nous aurions aimé rester plus longtemps et reviendrons pour sûr chez Giovanna et Alice lors d'une future visite à Florence!

We had a wonderful time in Giovanna's and Alice's flat! Both were great hosts, prepared breakfast each morning and gave us many good tips for Florence. The appartment itself was beautiful, 10min walking distance to the city's centre but still located in a quiet part of town. We had plenty of room, functioning airconditioning and everything was very clean. There's also a small supermarket down the street. It was all perfect, and we would be happy to come here again sometime. Thank you very much for the wonderful holiday!

My name's Alice and I live in London where I'm attempting to complete a PhD in medical imaging. My mum's name is Giovanna, she's recently retired from a not so exciting desk job and dream of travelling the word and see new places. To help her pay for her adventures we've decided to list her flat in Florence on Airbnb.
Mum, the host, has lived in Florence her entire life and she's happy to help you see the great parts of the city that aren't in the Guidebooks. I will help her manage the bookings and maintain the ad up to date.
We look forward connecting to people travelling to Florence and aim to make each guest experience this beautiful place like a local.
Thanks for checking out our place and I hope to talk with you soon!
