 Fantastic views, fabulous terrace
Enjoy

Take in the splendor of Florence with vast views and an expansive terrace. We dubbed this apartment Amore because we fell in love with the heartstopping views and terraces which are the centerpiece of this special apartment.

Location

Florence`s Oltrarno is prized for it many wonderful restaurants and fine Florentine craft workshops. The walk up to the apartment is about two blocks and can be made by walking up the street or via steps that rise from the river.  A short but steep uphill walk and you`ll be well rewarded by the spectacular views when you reach the Amore apartment.

Exterior

The building in which the Amore apartment is located was once a noble palazzo dating back to the 1400`s and then it became a monastery. A marble plaque inside the building lobby commemorates its historic significance.

Interior

The building has about eight vacation rental apartments. The Amore apartment is located on the top floor, with elevator. A sofa bed in the living room can sleep one. It is flanked by two upholstered arm chairs. An antique bureau greets you as you step into the apartment. Antiques have been used thoughtfully throughout, just the right amount to give it a timeless feeling without the impression that you`ve stepped into a furniture museum. The large picture window in the living room floods the room with light. Black out rolling shades can be drawn if you desire. Enjoy whiling away the hours absorbing the marvelous views of historic Florence. A mirror over the sofa reflects light and views all the way out to the terrace which is just beyond the dining area.

The dining area seats four. There are handsome polished wood floors throughout the apartment. French doors by the dining table lead out to the terrace.

The main terrace is on two levels, paved in terracotta tiles. The lower level, accessed off the dining area has a table and four chairs. Views from this terrace faces towards the south, with wonderful views of Florence`s Oltrarno area as well as the center of the city. The kitchen window has views out onto this terrace. A flight of stairs leads to the upper terrace which has two recliners for sunbathing, and a small table and chairs. This apartment has views, views and more views! Take in all 360 degrees of historic sites, from San Miniato to the Duomo to the hills of Tuscany. Watch the light as it moves across the buildings and enjoy living with fabulous views of Florence that few get to experience. These terraces will surely be the setting for many wonderful hours where you can enjoy meals, coffee or cocktails under sunny Florentine skies, certain to make for special memories of your Florence stay.

The living room has a love seat and two armchairs. The living room furniture is basic and, in our opinion, not very comfortable. The dining table and chairs are also basic. If you are not expecting luxury but want great views, this apartment is a good choice.

The kitchen is small but well equipped with microwave, 4 burner gas stove, refrigerator with separate freezer section, dishwasher. A nice feature in the kitchen is the little window overlooking the terrace with views of Florence. The washing machine is in the kitchen.

The bedroom has a divisible "king", two single beds that can be made up separately or joined to form a bed that is 10 inches wider than a North American Queen and 6 inches narrower than a King. It is nicely appointed with an antique cornice detail and a painting over the bed that lends a romantic touch. Another surprise is the little terrace off the bedroom. This small terrace has nice views too and two lounge chairs.

The bathroom is accessed off the living room. It is up-to-date with a sink set into an attractive green marble countertop, bathtub with shower attachment, toilet and bidet.

Reviews and Customer Testimonials for Italy Vacation Rental

Our Review
  • Special apartment due to the magnificent views and wonderful terraces.
  • Furniture is basic, not luxury. If you prefer good decor and high quality living room furniture, this apartment is not for you.
  • Sofa is narrow and firm, not comfortable. Armchairs not particularly comfortable either.
  • Kitchen is small but functional. Good for light meal preparation since there is no oven but there is a gas four burner stove top and a microwave
  • It is a steep uphill walk about two blocks to get to the apartment.
Guest Book Testimonials
Great Location and View Nov 2013

Our greeter was right on time and very helpful. Logistics working with Italy Perfect were professional and easy. Quick responses to our pre-trip questions. Great info packet as our trip got close. The apartment was in a killer location, a block from Ponte Vecchio. Yes it's up hill/steps, but manageable. Just make sure to cab it the first time and not walk with suitcases. Elevator in the building makes the fourth floor location easy. Kitchen is tiny. Great for assembling a breakfast, but Americans wouldn't ever think to cook in something that small. No prep area whatsoever. Nicely stocked with plates, cups, mugs, silverware etc. Coffee maker, toaster, microwave. Nice size refrig/freezer. The real benefit is the combo washer/dryer. Somewhat confusing to figure out the controls and settings, but a real godsend when trying to travel light. Nice sitting area. Nice sized bathroom. Plenty of hot water and good water pressure, although the shower/tub combo is pretty cramped. And the view from the patio is amazing. Exactly like the pictures on the website. 360 panorama of the Florence skyline with the Duomo staring you in the face. Nothing like a bottle of wine and some snacks at days end and soaking in the view and the sound of all the church bells. Our only complaint was the bedding. Blankets that weren't wide enough to cover two people, old thin pillows and some pretty threadbare sheets. They could really use an upgrade.

Our week in Florence Oct 2013

The amore apartment in Florence can be described in two words: view and location. The view from the terraces is amazing and the location is near to the central attractions of Florence, but tucked away on a quiet street. Our greeter was friendly and informative and the apartment is clean and comfortable. We stayed in Europe in VRBO's for a month and at this price point, the only improvements I would suggest for the amore apartment are: stock the kitchen with some basic condiments, oil, salt, pepper, sugar, etc. and improve the bedding. Italy perfect was easy to work with and even emailed us ahead of time to warn us that the world cycling event was in Florence that week and helped us to make some dinner reservations. I would recommend them highly.

Richard and Judy , Salem, Oregon

Apartment was Great Sep 2013

The apartment was great, especially the terraces which we enjoyed every evening. The apartment is located in a great neighborhood, quiet but close to excellent restaurants and shopping. A delightful walk to the main attractions in Florence and along the arno river bank. The apartment would be exceptional if stocked with some condiments such as salt, pepper, EVO etc and extra towels and kitchen supplies. That aspect was somewhat disappointing. The best restaurant in the area is Palazzo Tempi, which is around the corner from the apartment. Food and service were excellent.

Amazing but true Aug 2013

With all the positive comments, great photographs, and video clip all showing how great this apartment is, our expectations were pretty high.

Our expectations were beaten the minute we walked in. Quite simply, this place is wonderful.

In short, every good and positive word in these reviews is true. And I don't recognise any of the less-positive comments: the furniture was perfectly comfortable and we had no problems with the lift.

We loved this place. We will go back to it.

[Thank you, Andy. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay! Italy Perfect.]

Amore for the view and location! Jul 2013

We spent 11 wonderful days in the apartment in June 2013 and were not disappointed. It was as promised, quiet and with a superb view from every terrace and window that included additional landmarks too numerous to mention on the website. The apartment is small, and, Italy being Italy, has its charms and quirks which we expected. We made ourselves at home and became part of the neighborhood. The laundry (Lavanderia)in the small piazza at the base of the hill is convenient and all of our clothes came back with the tag "Lorenzo" because I had joked that my husband was my own Lorenzo the Magnificent! (We did not waste our time with the washing machine in the apartment as it takes too long.)

Three places not to miss: Il Papiro on Via Dè Guicciardini between the Ponte Vecchio and Pitti Palace for a demonstration and shopping, the best gelato in Florence at the Gelateria Eporio at Ponte Santa Trinita on the Oltrarno side (it's not too far to walk at any time of day), and please at least have lunch at Ristorante del Fagioli, Corso dei Tintori, 47-r for an all-around Italian experience in dining. The restaurant is small and crowded, but the brothers are talented in the kitchen and aim to please. I'll visit their menu in my dreams.

I would recommend Italy Perfect's Amore to anyone willing to settle for just enough space in order to enjoy the best views in Florence. I would definitely recommend Italy Perfect and will use their services for future rentals Our greeter was wonderful and even helped my husband carry our bags and set up wifi. The one blip that we had, trouble with a window that would not stay closed, was addressed promptly, even though it was not able to be repaired promptly. In no way did that mar our vacation or should it mar this review.

Beverly & Larry, Texas

Jul 2013

As advertised, this apartment is all about the terraces. Great 360 degree views. Inside, everything is clean and in good state of repair. Its just upstaged by the outside spaces. One criticism: the antique elevator has both inside and outside doors which both need to be closed when exiting. Failure to do so means it cannot be called to other floors. Why can this fact not be posted on the elevator door? [Italy Perfect: We are so glad you enjoyed the apartment and the terraces. As for the elevator, very sorry. That is pretty much the standard in Italy, so your hosts didn't think to mention, but you are totally correct, should be posted.]

The sunsets have been incredible Jun 2013

We knew we were in paradise Jun 2013

As soon as we walked up the steps to the rooftop balcony, we knew we were in paradise! The views of Florence were awe-inspiring in every direction. This trip was inspired by Dan Brown’s newest book, Inferno, which takes place in the historic city of Florence. We had a blast travelling to the same spots as Robert London, such as the Vasari Corridor and Palazzo Vecchio. What a wonderful way to celebrate our son Kyle’s graduation from Swarthmore College.

Nine amazing days in Florence May 2013

How do you top nine amazing days in Florence? By staying here!! Best views…dueling church bells…swarming swallows at dusk..perfect in every way!! Take some bubbly to the Boboli and some sunscreen to Cinque Terre and have a blast leave the light on…we’ll be back!!

Easter in Florence Apr 2013

We had planned a quick 3 days in Florence on our way to Paris in April and was lucky enough to find Italy Perfect. Lisa and Pat worked with us to secure the flat and offered great tips on travel in Italy.

We arrived Rome from the states and took the high speed rail up to Florence. We did our homework and no problems negotiating our way from the FCO airport to the train station.

We called ahead and met our greater at the flat and was given a tour and local info for markets. Make sure you bring a copy of your passport to make the rental process go quickly...

The views are terrific and the location near the Ponte Vecchio was perfect. Florence is easily the high point of our trip as everyone was friendly and the city is easily walkable. Highlights for us was the leather market and the Easter celebration at all the churches at once. The Flat is perfect for a couple ( but can sleep more),it has a large bed and two terraces to enjoy the view of the City. It is a decent size hill to walk up and the elevator is most welcomed but that's how you get such great views. There isn't a corner of the City that doesn't have some thing of interest and the food and wine? the best...and at a great price.

Thanks Lisa and Pat, we'll be back

Picture Perfect Oct 2012

We had the good fortune to be able to stay in this amazing apartment. Without over exagerating, I think the view from the top balconey is possibly the best in Florence.

The apartment was roomy and comfortable, although we spent most of our time up on the balconey anyway.

The kitchen is adequate if you feel like cooking, although I'm not sure why you'd bother when you're only a few minutes walk from everything.

Overall a great apartment in a great location - and with a view that will blow you away.

Amore Jul 2012

Service and accommodations were great. Most stunning views we have ever experienced in Firenze.

Tenants in apartment below Amore (students?) were terribly inconsiderate about elevator. Almost never closed doors properly so we often had to climb stairs and young women in particular were rude when asked to be more considerate.

Phil Cassidy, Wilmington,NC

We were delighted with our stay Jun 2012

Regarding our stay in Florence, I must say that it was terrific! We thoroughly enjoyed the apartment and although the climb to get to it was pretty steep, we still would be happy to stay there again. The view from the terrace was incomparable and the accommodations were perfect for our needs. As far as recommendations for restaurants in the area (there are so many wonderful ones), but the couple that stand out are Golden View (right on the same side of the Arno as the apartment), and Paoli located near the Piazza della Signoria. We were delighted with our stay and would certainly recommend Italy Perfect to our friends – especially because we had a problem with dates that Italy Perfect resolved for us. Again, it was a pleasure dealing with you.

Amore for lovers Nov 2011

If you love Florence so much you want to reach out and embrace it, this is the perfect apartment. The city is so close, the view so panoramic that you feel you can touch the Duomo. Sunsets and moon rises are spectacular. Yet while ever so close to the heart of Florence, Amore is incredibly quiet--tranquil, really. The various paths from the center are steep, especially when toting groceries from the nearby (and fabulous) Conad, with high quality take-out and produce. The terraces are ideal for candlelit dinners overlooking Florence. If you can tear yourself away, there are many great restaurants (try "J" on Borgo San Jacopo) and the hike up Costa San Giorgio leads past Galileo's house to the Boboli, the Belvedere and beyond to Arceti. You feel like you're walking back in time--but watch out for speeding cars!

Wonderful Stay in Amore Apartment Jul 2011

We had a wonderful stay in the Amore apartment in Florence. The apartment was charming and had panoramic views of Florence, not only from inside the apartment, but also from the spacious terraces. We had incredible views of several of Florence's treasures -- the Duomo, the Uffizi galleries, San Lorenzo, as well as the Arno River. We especially loved seeing the Duomo all lit up at night -- stunning! The neighborhood could not have been more ideal. We were literally steps from the Ponte Vecchio, but once we ascended to the Amore apartment, all the hustle and bustle of the summer crowds disappeared and we had a quiet enclave set above the city. There were several nice trattoria just down the street, as well as a charming pasticceria, a great bookstore, and the gourmet grocery shop nearby was terrific.

A couple of tips for future guests: We would highly recommend the "Florence card," which came out this spring. It is fifty euros and includes access not only to several key Florence sights, plus bus travel, but it also allows one to bypass long lines. On a number of occasions (at the Uffizi and the Accademia) we showed our cards and were ushered right in, past long lines -- no need to pre-register or wait for tickets! We would also highly recommend the train from the Milan Malpensa airport direct to the main train station in Florence. The train leaves from inside the airport and stops in Florence, so no need to get from the Milan airport to the Milan central train station.

Finally, we would highly recommend Italy Perfect (and your sister websites for other European cities) to friends and have done so frequently). We have stayed in Paris and London and now Florence and Tuscany, and the apartments are always in great locations and very beautifully appointed, and all the information you send is SO helpful and a great comfort. Thank you once again for a wonderful trip and a memory of a lifetime!!

Amore review Jul 2011

Overall, the Amore apartment was a great place to stay. The location is ideal, two minutes' walk to the Ponte Vecchio. The views are outstanding; the church bells seranade you every morning and evening. The only drawbacks to this apartment are a lack of comfortable seating inside--there is just one, small sofa--and a lack of shade on the terraces. Lounge chairs with a small canopy like we found in other places in Italy would be a welcome addition, along with at least one more comfy chair. Otherwise, we were very satisfied and enjoyed our stay. We would definitely use Italy Perfect again. Thank you! [Italy Perfect: These are valid points, just clarification here: The sofa is small; there are two small armchairs, too. There is a canopy on the bedroom balcony. There are lounge chairs on the terrace, butno canopy is possible. Unfortunately, the city of Florence has outlawed umbrellas and canopies, the only shade solutions possible for the top terrace. You can stand on this terrace and see that this is true, almost no umbrellas to be seen. The city also will not allow adding a full structure to the roof in order to add shade, a historical district restriction, much overlooked in past, they now are very careful and you can't slip anything past them in this very visible location. So, in the height of summer, enjoy the terrace morning and evening when the sun isn't directly overhead.]

Lisa Bennett, Reno, Nevada

Great View, Average Accomodations Jun 2011

Had an enjoyable stay here in May 2011. View is truly incredible and location is very convenient to Flroence attractions, also very quiet. Bakery at bottom of the hill is outstanding.

Accommodations did not match the excellence of location. Bedding was average at best, nothing to rave about; microwave was ineffective, if you're coming to cook meals there are probably better places; satellite channels are all Italian. [There is a new mattress in the bedroom. We will check the microwave and repair/replace as needed. There are English-language channels, you just have to set the receiver to Satellite reception. I'll check to make sure the instructions are still there.]

Overall we had a good time.

Steve and Peggy, Northern Virginia

Adored Amore May 2011

For our 10th anniversary, Lisa suggested the Amore and we are so very happy she did! It is a beautiful apartment that reflects Florence back to you from every angle in every room. If you aren't gazing out a window, you're catching the reflection of that scene in a cleverly placed mirror - and that's before you ever head outside to one of the three terraces.

We loved sitting with the windows open between the kitchen and the front terrace with views of the Duomo. While one of us cooked (with a view) the other could sit at the comfortable table on the terrace, planning the day while we chatted back and forth. This communication between the kitchen and the terrace was wonderful for preparing meals and still being together!

For sunsets we preferred the top terrace with 360 degree views. We never even made it to Piazzale Michelangelo - the views from our terrace were wonderful and much more private! The bedroom terrace was very lovely for morning relaxation.

The Amore is located across the Arno, but just up from Ponte Vecchio, so it is easily accessible to everything but just enough removed to provide a little escape from the crazy tourist scene. Birds greeted us in the morning and were still chirping away at sunset. Traffic and tourist noise was almost non-existent - a welcome respite from the bust city center!

For future visits, I don't think we would be happy staying anywhere else but the Amore Apartment - it was perfect for us and we wondered where else we could find such views with so much privacy and such easy access to everything? Amore has all that 2 people need for a week or two stay: an elevator (helpful for carrying up groceries and after the climb up the hill to the apartment), a well equipped but quite small kitchen, washing machine (dryer is in the basement, we were told), tub and shower, nice linens, hairdryer, big flat-screen TV (though we never turned it on!), sound system, etc. The Wi-Fi did not work initially but after a quick call to Christina (our greeter) she arrived in less than an hour and rectified the problem. She also made another quick repair that we weren't concerned about at all (broken light bulb) but she insisted on everything being perfect for our stay. Upon arrival, Christian also provided us a lovely welcoming bottle of wine and a map that she marked with locations for groceries, good restaurants (try Ristorante Il Barroccio for authentic food at a great price and no crowds!) and taxi stands. Christina made our arrival and our stay in Florence so easy.

Having now stayed twice with Italy Perfect, we're confident that part of what makes this company so exceptional is the quality of the people they employ in each city to handle the property and act as greeters. Both our greeters were outstanding! Thank you Italy Perfect and Christina - the Amore exceeded all our expectations.

Our Stay at Amore in Florence Apr 2011

We enjoyed our stay and were thoroughly happy with Amore. The place was beautiful and very clean. Our daughter, who was studying there, recommended we stay on the other side of the Arno. This was a very good suggestion as it was much quieter and yet it was only a 15 minute walk to the Duomo and a 5 minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio. Her friends came over and commented on how nice it was to hear the birds sing. We recommend the restuarants Carmello and Trattoria 4 Leoni.

We fell in love with the Amore apartment Jan 2011

The Amore apartment was so nice for our Florence stay. What wonderful views. We were there in November and had several surprisingly mild days interspersed with some rain so we able to enjoy the terrace part of the time. The Oltrarno location is excellent, well worth the walk up the block to reach the apartment where you are rewarded with quiet streets and amazing views. Pat at Italy Perfect could not have been more helpful. Appreciated all the great restaurant recommendations too. And new little supermarket nearby on Via dei Bardi had a great array of good quality foods. We would loved the Amore apartment and it's amazing views and hope to stay here again next year.

Marta Lopez, Chandler, AZ

Those views made my trip Nov 2010

We spent 8 wonderful days at the Amore apartment. It was just perfect for us. They views are not-to-be-believed. Although the weather was chilly we did have a few afternoons to sit up on the terrace and gaze out upon Florence. Every morning we'd bundle up and step out on the terrace with a hot cup of coffee and just take in the splendor. We would most certainly recommend this as a well located, comfortable and special apartment for a Florence stay. Pat at Italy Perfect was so helpful and informative too.

Lizzy, Perth, Australia

Hope to return Oct 2010

The photos do not lie, this is a beautiful suite in a carefully restored ancient building with stunning views in all directions. Despite some rain during our late September stay, we enjoyed watching the city in all kinds of light. The location is wonderful: quiet and private but still central. The uphill walk and stairs (there is an elevator) are a good antidote to pasta!

Fairytale evenings on the roof deck :^) Jul 2010

This apartment is a rare opportunity. The location is superb, convenient, quiet and sensational! The large living/dining room is great for being together, yet the patio , balconey and roof terace offer private outside areas. We liked cooking our evening meal at "home" and dining on the patio outside the living room and kitchen. The pass thru from the kitchen was fun and the umbrella was essential at dinner time as the sun was sneaking around to the west. Teen agers can text/compute out on the bedroom balconey. The really big show was at sunset: On the Roof terrace! It was a little too hot in July to go up there in daytime, but evenings were wow! a 360 degree view and a gentle breeze after sunset with all of Florence and her churches/monuments lighted just for us, we were in heaven. Altho the buildings are old, Air conditioning, small but fully equipped kitchen, elevator and wifi made us totally comfortable. Grocery store at the bottom of the stairs, and restaurants everywhere are great.

Dream Come True Jun 2010

I have dreamed of staying in Florence for many years and we chose this apartment because we wanted to enjoy the city to the utmost. Yes, it is not a budget apartment, but this was a special trip for us and it was still less than comparable hotels I shopped. The Amore apartment and Florence fulfilled our dreams. The city is infinite, so much to enjoy, a feast for the senses. Then, every morning and evening we would choose one of the three terraces where to enjoy our breakfast, cocktails, dinner... The views of Florence change through the day and weather, all beautiful and evocative. The apartment is totally equipped, perfectly comfortable. There is plenty of room for a couple. Our greeter was friendly and helpful. Italy Perfect was, well, "perfect."
