The Tuscany region
Here are the most important/ popular museums and attractions in Florence based on our experience:
Museo Nazionale del Bargello
Galleria degli Uffizi
Pitti Palace and Boboli gardens
- Piazza San Croce- Piazza Santa Croce is one of the most charming, and lively squares on the southeast side of Florence. This is a perfect square to sit and take it all in. The beautiful Basilica makes a stunning back drop for a lazy afternoon Panini, and some down-time!
Oltrarno area, Piazza Santo Spirito
In Florence as in most of Italy, there are time-honoured traditions when it comes to cuisine, etiquette and even the order in which food is served and eaten.
Florentines are no exception to this rule and a traditional meal begins with what is commonly known as antipasti/antipasto (aka appetizers).
Antipasti typically includes crostini mista (basically grilled baguette topped with a variety of toppings such a bruschetta, liver pate and/ or mushrooms), cured meats; typically prosciutto crudo (thinly sliced, uncooked ham) and/ or various salamis, and fresh tomato, mozzarella and basil, etc.

"Enjoy the City Without Worry"
Having a comfortable place to stay means I can enjoy my vacation without worry! Patrizia made that possible for me and my family with her apartment. After I chose the apartment (months in advance) I was in frequent contact with her to make sure everything was good and she had everything we needed. She did not mind my emails and always quickly responded. We arrived quite late and she didn't blink. She met us at the apartment, showed us everything and provided a map of the city. She pointed out attractions if we hadn't already done our research. The apartment was extremely comfortable and clean. I had no problems with making my coffee in the mornings or preparing my family dinner a couple nights because the supermarket is right down the street. In fact everything is right down the street! The location of this apartment couldn't have been better. Around one corner was a local bar where we had some wonderful drinks before dinner, and a gelato shop that was the freshest gelato we had in Florence. (we tried a lot of gelato). And remember to visit Mery downstairs, who has the best selection of Tuscany ceramics in the city. I only needed to contact Patrizia a couple of times during our stay and she responded right away. We couldn't have chosen a better apartment for our week in Florence and would use the same apartment if we return to this magical city.

Mon fils et moi avons été acceuillis par Patrizia. Elle est très sympathique, elle nous a fournit les principales adresses, L'emplacement est idéal près du Palazzo Pitti, a quelques pas du Ponte Vecchio. Il y a une épicerie a 2 coins de rue, une patisserie en face et plein de restaurants. Un charme supplémentaire dans l'entrée des appartements, la boutique de céramique, qui donne une allure féérique de la Florence . Patrizia nous a appelé un taxi pour notre départ. Nous étions comme chez de la famille. L'appartement bien équipé, un air climatisé dans le séjour avec le divan lit et un ventilateur au plafond dans la chambre matrimoniale, la température extérieure était près de 40 et nous avons super bien dormi, L'endroit est sécuritaire. Nous espérons avoir la chance de retourner voir Patrizia. Merci pour ton énergie

Patrizia was the most welcoming owner who assisted us with ideas for the best visitations, restaurants, organised taxis for us and gave us general advice. There was also an Air conditioner installed to assist with 37 degrees heat. The apartment is in THE BEST LOCATION. Great facilities. Top class restaurants with in two hundred metres. To take advantage of the elevator travel light as big suit cases would not fit easily! I would highly recommend this for couples. We could walk every where and thoroughly enjoyed the magic of Florence from this brilliant location. Wonderful value for money.

Our stay in Florence was spectacular all made possible with our apartment rental. Patrizia was extremely helpful from the beginning to the end of our visit. She promptly responded to all our needs and requests.

"Un'esperienza da ripetere...consigliatissima!!!"
Ho soggiornato qui per un fine settimana insieme a mio marito e ai nostri 3 bambini e ci siamo trovati veramente bene, sotto ogni punto di vista: accoglienza attenta e premurosa da parte di Patrizia, zona splendida (in pieno centro, fra Ponte Vecchio e Palazzo Pitti, comodamente raggiungibile a piedi dalla Stazione di Santa Maria Novella, ma praticamente a due passi da tutto...), appartamento spazioso, arredato con gusto e dotato di ogni comfort. Se potessi tornare a Firenze (come spero!) sicuramente contatterei di nuovo Patrizia e consiglierei i suoi alloggi a chiunque mi chiedesse informazioni!

"Appartement central, propre et agréable"
Cet appartement correspond à ce que le site Abritel présente. Il est propre, fonctionnel et on y trouve tout ce qu'il faut pour passer un bon moment à Florence. De plus, la propriétaire qui nous y a reçu lors de notre arrivée y a laissé de l'information touristiques très intéressantes ainsi que les no de téléphones en cas d'urgence (soucis de notre confort). L'endroit est très central pour visiter Florence et également tranquille. Lors de notre départ, Patrizia la propriétaire est venu nous saluer et nous a appelé le taxi pour l'aéroport... Excellent endroit

"Comfortable respite in the heart of Florence"
The apartment is very conveniently located a block form Ponte Vecchio and a 15 minute walk from the train station (15 minutes from almost anywhere in the heart of the city). It is quiet and clean and with a little kitchen, washing machine and balcony, is a great homebase. Patrizia is welcoming and very helpful. She provided some great tips about the neighbourhood, including visiting San Spirito (just a few blocks away). The church itself is worth a visit with its crucifix carving by a young Michaelangelo. The square offers music and food in the evening and a market during the day. There is a food store just around the corner from the market too if you want to prepare some picnics or meals at the apartment. All in all, it was a perfect place for us and I can whole-heartedly recommend it.

"Wonderful Apartment in Florence"
Patrizia is a wonderful host. Welcomed us with a bottle of wine and arranged for a taxi to pick us up when it was time to leave. Also directed us where we could get "delicioso" gelato . The apartment is in a fabulous location and very comfortable and clean. My sister, my 2 girlfriends and I were very happy staying here. We walked everywhere and would definitely return on a future trip to Florence. Thank you Patrizia for a wonderful stay.

"Location, location, location"
A cosy apartment just footsteps from Ponte Vecchio. Contains everything you might need If you want to eat in. Very clean and comfortable. Owner is very friendly and accommodating. Across from Pitti Palace. The best Gelato in Florence is around the corner. Many of Florence' s best restaurants just steps away. Stayed 12 nights and could not have had better accommodations.

"Great apartment for seeing Florence with family"
This apartment is a great place for families with young children to stay. It's in a fantastic location being only a minute's walk from Ponte Vecchio, which puts it in walking distance to the most desirable sites, great restaurants, and good shopping. The apartment easily accommodated our family of four (kids aged 11 and 9) in terms of sleeping, cooking, and relaxing in the late evenings. The landlord is very helpful. She gave us thoughts on places to visit and good places to eat. When we arrived a few hours earlier than anticipated she came directly to the apartment to let us in. I strongly recommend this apartment, particularly to families with small children.
