Eric W.: Florence Apartment

We stayed at the Tradueponti -Old Bridge apartment what a wonderful apartment it was! Right in the heart of Florence with knockout views not only of Ponte Vecchio but also Palazzo Vecchio, etc., but on the less touristy side of the river in Santo Spirito with a much more local feel and flavor, but all the sights are just a short bridge walk away. Everything as advertised and more! Allessandra was always available and helpful, especially with wonderful restaurant and gelato recommendations! Right outside the door is a full service grocery with a full scale bakery and deli to get everything the cafes offer at a fraction of the cost. Everything in the apartment was roomy, secure and comfortable! I would strongly recommend the Old Bridge Apartment!

Suzanne P.: Great Home-Base for Exploring Florence

I chose this apartment due to its central location and proximity to a number of attractions including the Duomo, the Uffizi Gallery, and of course, the Ponte Vecchio. This apartment is just a stone's throw from the bridge! The view of the Arno river is spectacular and it's easy to peek out at the sunset on the tiny balcony in the dining/living room. The apartment is spacious and comfortable with reliable, fast wifi. It has a dining room table big enough to accommodate 6 guests comfortably. There's a comfortable couch, a leather reading chair and even a computer hooked up to a printer in case one needs to print tickets or boarding passes. There's a TV but we never used it! Don't forget to look at the art on the walls - they depict the view from the apartment as well as some drawings of the surrounding area after bombings during World War II! Adjoining the dining/living room is a bedroom and separate bathroom. The master bedroom contains a very comfortable queen-sized bed and a personal bathroom. This bedroom overlooks the street, but new windows and shutters make it so noise is not an issue. The kitchen is on the same side as the master bedroom. There is an easy-to-use microwave oven, a conventional oven, a sink, and a dishwasher. There are plates, bowls, glasses, wine glasses, coffee cups, and whatever utensils you might need, as well as cooking pots and pans. The washing machine is also in the kitchen. Luckily for us, the apartment can be kept relatively cool just by opening windows and the courtyard door. However, air conditioning may be necessary during summer nights, though electricity costs are high! Alessandra Gaito was very kind and provided detailed instructions as well as a helpful booklet about the apartment. She can also point out grocery stores which are cheap and convenient. I recommend this apartment highly and thank Ms. Gaito for a great stay!

Chris T: Most Excellent Experience

My husband and I enjoyed this marvellous apartment for 8 days. For the first 5 days, this included our son, daughter in law, and 2-year old granddaughter. Alessandra provided a sturdy crib, and adorable baby linens. The kitchen is very well equipped, and we were able to enjoy breakfast, and random snacks, while enjoying one of the best views in the city from our dining room table. Our DIL's brother joined us for 3 days, and mentioned that the couch was very comfortable. Even with 5 adults and a toddler, we did not feel crowded. The location could not be better, or feel safer. We have stayed in Florence before, and being so central this time made all the difference. The apartment, and Alessandra, are true gems.
