Magic in Florence
The Corvetta is a delightful apartment with the best imaginable location. The two master suites make it a perfect choice for two couples, and the third study with sofa bed is a comfortable addition if the need arises. There were minor maintenance issues that were taken care of immediately (except for the one that we fixed ourselves the first afternoon we were there). The kitchen could have used a little more thought (snacks and coffee but no cutting board? no salt or pepper? no olive oil?) but all in all a first class arrangement. If you want a secure, excellent accommodation within walking distance of virtually everything in Florence the Corvetta is the Italy Perfect choice.
[Thank you so much. So sorry some expected items were missing. Had you called, the manager would have come right over with them. Of course you shouldn't have to and we all apologize. The Italy Perfect Team]
Corvetta was lovely
The Corvetta was lovely. Well- appointed rooms and kitchen. Very clean, with beautiful hard-wood floors. Plenty of space to relax in. The windows provided great lighting and access to the patio's. The view of the River Arno all the way to the Duomo was spectacular. At night you could hear the music coming from Piazza del Signoria.
Outstanding location! Steps from the Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi, Gelato shops, even Palace Pitti was remarkably close. Great location to get everywhere. Short taxi ride to the train station. In 1.5 hours you could be Milan for a day trip! There is also a really close grocery market that stays open till 2100.
Depending on when you go, if you have a need for air-conditioning use it wisely it really is the most expensive utility. Make sure you go off the tourist track. The small restaurants that have menus written only in Italian are authentically delicious.
Absolutely would refer Italy Perfect to friends. The owners are very responsive if a problem should arise. The building lost Wi-Fi but we were quickly given a "key" to use and had no further issues. You won't be disappointed with the Corvetta or Italy Perfect! I hope to return.

We were very pleased with the apartment; it was spacious and elegant
We were very pleased with the apartment; it was spacious and elegant with a magnificent view of the Arno River, Ponte Vecchio and the museums across the river. It was within easy walking distance of the major attractions and there were numerous restaurants in the area. They were good but it seems the quality of food seems to have gone down versus our earlier trip to Italy in the mid-80’s. That is not to say the food was bad, there just weren’t any “Ah-Ha” moments. Believe the food would have been better away from the cities.
There is an excellent grocery store within a few hundred meters of the apartment that we made good use of. Like the French, the Italians don’t seem to be much on breakfast.
Believe we hit the weather just right. A little later and things would have been uncomfortably warm.
Support staff in Florence was great! They were very cordial and helpful for the few requests we made. In fact, the same can be said of all the Italian people we ran into.
FYI, we had spent a week in Rome before taking the train to Florence. Many of the comments about Florence, especially the restaurants, held true there as well.
The only negative we had was our departure from the Florence Airport. No one seemed to be in charge. There were long lines that you really weren’t sure of whether you were in the right one or not. Quite frankly, it reminded us of our days living in the middle east. Guess the best take away is be sure to have plenty of time allocated to airport activities.
Best location, just a few steps from Ponte Vecchio
Best location, just a few steps from Ponte Vecchio on the Oltro Arno side. Apartment was spacious, clean, and comfortable. Made extensive use of the kitchen due to convenient supermarket just two blocks away. Look forward to returning someday!
Beautiful apartment. Beyond our expectations. Wonderful location.
Super apartment, fabulous location
We felt that we were in the lap of luxury at the stunning Corvetta aprtment. Thank you Italy Perfect for such a wonderful stay and all the great tips and advice. Our trip went so smoothly. The driver you recommended, Marco, provided great service as did Chef in Tuscany who came and prepared a special celebration dinner for my husband's birthday which we were lucky enough to celebrate during our Florence stay.
