Why Pier Luigi Pisani chose Florence Historic Centre

The apartment is in a strategic location, a stone throw from central train station, Duomo Cathedral and all attractions. There's an elevator that's not a common facility in the center of the city and the building itself is elegant and of historical and cultural value, residence of Ugo Foscolo's patron Candida Quirina Mocenni, Martelli's relative, in '700.

What makes this apartment unique

A unique location between Santa Maria Novella, Cappelle Medicee, San Lorenzo Market and Duomo Cathedral. The area is full of restaurants, shops, supermarkets, and close to the incredible in-door market of San Lorenzo, the gastronomic mecca of the city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Pier is the best host I have seen so far. He is very friendly and nice to accommodate our changes in the trip (because of the Air France Pilots' strike, we have been changing the arrival time but Pier is so patient and nice to us). He welcomed us in the apartment and showed us around. Let us know how to operate all the equipment in his lovely apartment. He even bought us fruit and drinks to welcome us. He also provided us a map of Florence and told us where are the attractions and the direction. Gave us useful tips and restaurant recommendations. He sent us email on the next day to make sure we do not have any questions.

For the apartment itself, it is located at the city center which is less than 10 minutes walk from the train station. The interior is remodeled and it gives you modern but blended with historical feeling (the building was built in 17th century). It is the best apartment we stayed during our Europe trip. We for sure will recommend this property to our friends and will come visit again in the future. =)

A wonderful respite in the middle of a very busy city!

  • 5 of 5

Piero met us at the train station and escorted us to his place. He checked in with us after we were settled. Right away it struck us as a contemporary, cared for, clean, safe and welcoming place. Fully stocked with dishes, washer/dryer, micro, oven, cleaning stuff, extra towels, a great shower and, even better, breakfast fixings that lasted us more than three days! There is cable TV, internet, coffee machine, ice and a grocery next door. The place is quiet, but open the windows and hear plenty of street sounds. When ready to leave, the train station is a 5 minute walk away. Will definitely recommend to friends and family

Central location.

  • 4 of 5

Well appointed apartment. Luigi, our host, was very attentive. He met us at the garage, and let us into the unit. If you do laundry, pay attention to the operating instructions. The unit works great, but its tricky to operate. There is street noise at night, so bring ear plugs if your a light sleeper.

Pier is gem

  • 5 of 5

Place was great perfect location, Pier is totally accommodating, nice, and roomy. It is a little loud due to area, but the apartment out weighs the noise. Would stay here again, and would recommend this place to anyone.
