The apartment was wonderful, literally down the street from the Duomo. The building has an elevator and is centrally located in Florence. We walked everywhere, including the train station, and never felt like we needed a taxi or bus. Great restaurants nearby, including the Crazy Cage around the corner which is only open for lunch (tell Andreas high for us!). Angela, who we coordinated the apartment with, was excellent. Excellent in answering questions and responding before booking, and excellent at check-in and check-out. Plus, the apartment was well stocked with dishes, coffee and the Italian espresso/coffee pot, and spices. I like the expresso pot so much I bought one to bring home with me. There is a small grocery store nearby, and everything in Florence is within reach. Angela was also able to recommend a tour company a couple of blocks away (there is also one on the same block) and their service/tours were excellent. We did a tour of the Duomo with the three of us and two other couples, which was well worth it to avoid the lines and have a truly expert guide. We also did a winery tour with the same company. The apartment is one bedroom and one bath, and there is at least one futon in the living room. There is a second sofa also, but we never checked to see if it was a futon or not. Overall a very comfortable apartment in a great location with a superb hostess. Highly recommend.
