Stephanie and Peter: Perfect location with excellent view

The apartment is situated in a great location. Easy walking distance to all the Florence attractions. With a perfect view of the Ponte Vecchio. Our visit began with a wonderful greeting by the owner Alessandra. The apartment isspacious, clean and secure, The full kitchen allowed us to enjoy cooking some dinners at home. There is a dishwasher, and a washing machine which allowed us to feel at home for during our two week stay. There is a supermarket very close by and great panini at Panini in Chianiti just steps away. We would definitely choose to stay here in the future,

Ronald: Perfect in every way!

The Old Bridge Apartment in Florence was perfect in every way. Located just a short distance from Ponte Vecchio, it is easy to find and within walking distance of the primary sights. The apartment is beautifully appointed, clean and secure. It is very spacious and easily comfortable for two couples. Having a full kitchen allowed us to prepare some meals in the apartment. A wonderful grocery store that sells fresh pasta, meats, and produce was less than a block away. Each night we were able to hear the live music from a variety of bands that performed on the bridge. But, if you want quiet, all you have to do is close the windows. We took day trips to Siena and Lucca during our week in Florence. The train station is about a 20 minute walk, but easy to find. Our hostess, Alessandra, was very attentive and did everything she could to insure we had a pleasant stay. Thank you, Alessandra. Our stay was even more than we hoped for. We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to our friends and family.

Alan P.: You MUST stay here!

It just does not get any better. Alessandra is a delight to work with and made sure we had everything we needed both before we arrived, as we were there and upon checkout. The location means you walk everywhere and definitely do not need a car or even public transit. The view is exactly as in the pictures - you open the window and see and hear the sounds of the Ponte Vecchio while everybody else squishes onto the bridge to feel it, whereas you are living it! Grocery store is 100m away. Best gelato (La Carraia) is a 5 min walk right on the river 2 bridges over. Uffizi is right across the Ponte Vecchio a 2-min walk away (make sure you reserve online ahead of time to avoid the lengthy line). This modern apartment has it all. One bedroom has a queen size bed and second bedroom, a view of Ponte Vecchio and 2 singles which can also become a King. 2 good size bathrooms with good strong showers. A/C works well and cools the place nicely on a hot summer day but leaving windows open on both sides of apartment also brings a nice cross breeze. Having access to a desktop computer/printer is a nice plus. Washing machine works well as does dishwasher. We loved the place so much we made the 10-min walk to the Mercato Centrale to buy fresh pasta, visit the wonderful butcher/poultry stands, fresh fruit/veg/bread etc and a bottle of Chianti and ate in 4 of the 5 nights to enjoy the sights and sounds from the dining room table. All in all, an absolutely wonderful place to stay.

Carol M.: Cool Respite From Heat

We were so glad to have such a perfect location in Florence. We spent a great deal of time in the apartment to get out of the muggy heat of Florence during the day, and spent our evenings outside under the stars and among the other tourists and evening musicians. Florence is magical at night! Alessandra met us at the apartment showing us how everything worked, especially the air conditioners. Her English is excellent! There was some construction going on during the day, but overall, we were very happy with the accommodations.

Virginia: Buon viaggio
This apartment is a one of a kind jewel for those wishing experience Firenze close-in. In the heart of the city but on the quieter Oltrarno side of the Arno River, this spacious and  beautifully appointed two bedroom apartment is a oasis of tranquility close to the city center that can otherwise often be unusually noisy and boisterous.  Literally a few short paces down from the Ponte Vecchio with a  spectacular view of the city center's Storico district just across the river, this is one of the most convenient locations for easy access to the wonders that Florence offers. The proprietor, Alessandra, is a true Florentine who meticulously maintains the highest standard of care for this property.  She was incredibly helpful in identifying the best local restaurants, grocery store and all important gelato vendors in the neighborhood.  She was always just a phone call away and responsive to our every need. We have lived in and visited Firenze in the past on a number of occasions and we can say without a doubt that we would never stay anywhere else after our experience with Alessandra and this particular apartment. Buon Viagio
