Bryan: Firenze in style!

My family had the good fortune to spend almost 2 weeks in Florence and Tuscany this past month and even better luck in finding this incredible gem of an apartment right on the bank of the Arno and next to the Ponte Vecchio. The apartment, on the 2nd floor, is just as you see on the site and Alessandra made everything easy, from the application process to meeting us personally at the apartment and giving us great food and fun recommendations. But perhaps the best part is the location. It is only steps to the Ponte Vecchio and only minutes from all the historic sites in city center, all while being on the south side of the river, or the Oltarno district. It has a much more local feel, with small shops, quaint piazzas and great ristorantes. Also, at such a great price, we based out of the apartment, did a couple of overnights and left most of our things there. Last but not least, at the end of every long and wonderful day, nothing was better than standing on our balcony with a glass of wine in hand looking out over the city and hearing the music playing from the bridge. We can't wait to get back! Grazie mille Alessandra!!

This apartment is outstanding, among the best I have ever stayed in.  The location is perfect: a few steps from the Ponte Vecchio.  You can see the bridge and the river from the living room and front bedroom.  You are in easy walking distance of just about all of Florence's sight-seeing gems as well as a number of excellent restaurants.  The apartment is well appointed without striving for fake luxury.  And finally: Alessandra is charming and a pleasure to work with.  I would gladly stay here again.

Alessandra’s apartment is in the perfect location for visiting Florence.  And when not out visiting the city or surrounding countryside, the apartment is a comfortable place to relax, being spacious and offering all the amenities a traveler could want, along with an incredible view of the Ponte Vecchio and Arno River.

My wife and I visited Florence in February, and we were joined by or son and his fiancé.  Four adults can share the space quite comfortably, as it has two full sized bedrooms and two bathrooms and a very large living room/dining room space, along with a full service kitchen. The apartment is well furnished, and the room temperature was always comfortable.   

The apartment is located in a charming and secure building just off the Ponte Vecchio, making for a short walk to all the major attractions in the city. This also made it easy to pop in and out of the apartment throughout the day, which was a real convenience.

And the view from the large living room window is stunning.  The Ponte Vecchio is only yards away (it looks especially spectacular when light up at night), and from the window one looks literally straight down upon the Arno River.  On those days when we wanted to take a break from going out to restaurants and to eat in, we felt as if we were in a restaurant that offered the best view in town.

You and your party were perfect guests. I really appreciate your kind words on your stay at my apartment, and getting to know you had a good time in Florence is all that matters.

I recently spent several days at The OLD BRIDGE APARTMENT.  I have visited Florence dozens of times over the years and this stay stands out as a special one. Alessandra  is a wonderful and warm felt comfortable in my new surroundings. The apartment is spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is modern and there is a washer/dryer (so no need to pack many clothes!) Views are outstanding - the Ponte Veccio and the Arno. The neighborhood is delightful - plenty of ristorante and caffes and the Pitti Palace, Ufizzi and Duomo are a  short walk from the apartment. i highly recommend this apartment!

Stephanie: Sophisticated Italian jewel!

We were mightily impressed with this jewel of an apartment on the Arno River. The night view of the Ponte Vecchio bridge was amazing. The location was superb. We were glad it was on the opposite side of the river from the major tourist attractions, some of which we could see from our viewpoint, but away from the really dense traffic. We also really enjoyed walking this part of the city including old Belvedere fort, affording an incredible view of the city along with a small bar to get your libation and put your feet up. It was easy walking distance to all of the major tourist attractions in this historic city. It was impossible to get lost walking "home" at the end of a long day as the famous bridge is the best landmark in the city. The home was modern, clean, and had a more than adequate kitchen. The sheets and pillows are more luxurious than in other international VRBO's we have encountered, more along the lines of what I hoped to see. Alessandra herself is a charming Italian woman who is straightforward and has an excellent command of English. We highly recommend this lovely home.

It is always rewarding to know my guests had a good stay at the apartment, and both you and your husband were two wonderful guests. Too bad we didn't had much time to talk on your check out, the marathon in the historical centre was threatening your driving out of the city, but you made it! I hope we have a chance to meet again in the future. Ciao.
