Only a block away from the Arno river, the cozy, pristine Parione Perfetto apartment is beautifully decorated and perfect for enjoying one of the nicest locations in the center of Florence.
The Parione Perfetto apartment is a cozy, affordable, pristine apartment. It is perfect for enjoying one of the nicest locations in the center of Florence.
You can't get much more central or high-end than this location. The opposite side of the street is lined with noble Renaissance palazzi that overlook the Arno River, including the exclusive, baroque-style Palazzo Corsini. Walk one block and you're at the Arno River, the Ferragamo Museum and the beginning of Via Tornabuoni, the designer shopping district. Or, walk a block or two the other direction and you'll reach Harry's Bar or the luxury Westin Excelsior Hotel. The are many excellent restaurants in the immediate vicinity. The proximity of the Arno river is nice, since it is pleasant to stroll along, to admire the many bridges and views or to reach the Oltrarno side of the river.
The building dates back to the Renaissance. There is nothing noteworthy about the exterior or the small lobby area. Stairs up to the apartment are manageable.
The living room has an L-shaped sofa, a wall of storage cabinets with a flat-screen TV. The TV receives a few English language news channels. High beamed ceilings, cheery furnishings and a sparkling chandelier make this a pleasurable apartment for your home-away-from-home while in Florence. The windows are in the traditional Florentine style, up one step, to look out over elegant Via del Parione which is a narrow street, in authentic Renaissance style.
The kitchen and dining area are in the center of the apartment. Kitchen is small but fully appointed with full size refrigerator, small gas stove, electric oven, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, electric kettle, pots, pans and dishes. A small flat screen TV is in the dining area.
There are many practical and pretty touches throughout, with nice chandeliers, good storage for a small apartment and ample floor lamps.
The master bedroom has a large queen bed 63" x 79" (160cm x 200cm)*. The bedroom is located at the back of the apartment. It has a large armoire along one wall.
The second bedroom at the front of the apartment, next to the living room has a double bed 55" x 79" (140cm x 200cm)*. The windows face Via del Parione. It is a small bedroom, good for 1 person. Cupboards over the bed provide storage.
A foldaway single bed can be provided with advance arrangement.

• Excellent, high quality location on a fine street
• Apartment is small but cleverly laid-out to maximize the living space
• Complimentary welcome basket with food and goodies to get you started.
• Well appointed and very well maintained, the manager is vigilant about keeping a high standard of cleaning in addition to being kind and helpful to guests.
• Windows are up high on the wall, step up to see out. There are no views, just the buildings directly across the narrow street.
• The apartment does not get much direct light due to position in the building and the narrow street, this is common in medieval cities but the bright and pleasant furnishings help to offset this.
Our Guest Reviews
Lovely central apartment
Comfortable centrally located apartment within walking distance of duomo and Arno River.Our greeter was very friendly and showed us on a map all of the locations of the major sites. We went to a restaurant she recommended Antica Restaurant di Cambi . She carefully explained all of the features of the apartment and how to work the appliances.
The area is very quiet at night. Nearby are lovely shops, many restaurants and just across the Santa Trinita bridge is a good grocery store. I would recommend booking with Italy Perfect.

Living the good life in the heart of Florence
We absolutely loved our stay in our apartment. So perfectly furnished and located that it was the perfect place to start and end our day while we stayed in Florence. The apartment was clean, well lit and very relaxing with everything you needed for the week. We were welcomed with a wonderful food and drink package that lasted thru the week. Having a washer and dryer was a welcome treat mid way through the week. We were so centrally located just steps from everything Florence had to offer, we even had our favorite restaurant and coffee shop located a few steps from the door. The hostess is also a art tour guide so we got great advice on what to see and where to eat that worked out perfectly. We are so pleased we stayed there and can’t wait to return to our favorite city in Italy!

Parione was PERFETTO
I was lucky enough to stay at Parione Perfetto in late August. The apartment was amazing! Temperatures averaged above 100 degrees the week we were there and the AC worked great. The location was amazing, you could walk anywhere within 5-10 minutes! It was meticulously kept and the welcome gift was such a nice touch! The wifi had no issues and there was satellite TV with quite a few American channels. I can't say enough about the staff at Italy Perfect, they were so helpful and responsive to all of my questions about where to go and get certain items! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a wonderful vacation in Florence!
