Enjoy

Fantastic location! This elegant, comfortable and bright apartment will simply amaze you with its proximity to the Ponte Vecchio and fascinating views over the Arno from your own private terrace.

Overlooking the Arno river and Oltrarno area, enjoy memorable views and a location right in the heart of the historic center.

Location

The apartment is located in the most central historic center location. You can be at the entrance to the Uffizi Gallery in just two minutes, stroll the Ponte Vecchio at your doorstep. Enjoy the convenience of a location that is second to none when it comes to views and acessibility to the sites.

Exterior

The apartment building is on tiny Piazza del Pesce at the foot of the Ponte Vecchio bridge. This area was heavily damaged during World War II, and while the Ponte Vecchio was spared, many of the buildings on either side of the bridge, including several 14th century houses that were on this piazza facing the loggia to the Uffizi along the Arno river, were destroyed. Post-war this area was completely rebuilt, including the building within which the Memoria apartment is located. So what the building lacks in Renaissance architectural embellishments, it makes up for in views, light and modern conveniences which are often not found in many of Florence`s historic buildings, where refurbishment is limited by ancient structures.

Interior

Sunlight streams through the completely unobstructed windows and views from the living room, dining room and both bedrooms. The apartment is roomy and very comfortable, furnished to a very high standard. The living room is large and graciously appointed with two sofas and three comfortable armchairs. Parquet floors throughout the living room and dining room/study. Wall-to-wall terrace doors are southward facing and open out onto a small terrace. The terrace is delightful for taking in the stunning views of the Arno and Oltrarno views. It is furnished with a table and two chairs. There is a TV with satellite in the living room.

Off the living room is a combination dining room/study with a large window with stunning views and. An expandable dining table can seat up to 12 people. There is a small desk in this room, a handy workspace if needed.

There is air conditioning in the living room, dining room, both bedrooms and the kitchen. Because the apartment gets full afternoon sun, it can get quite warm in the height of the summer season, when A/C is essential. There are screens on the bedroom windows.

The kitchen is fully equipped and has a large refrigerator, separate freezer, dishwasher, microwave, 5-burner gas stove, electric oven, dishwasher, Italian espresso pot and drip coffee maker, toaster. The laundry room has a washer, dryer and sink.

Bedrooms

The master bedroom has a dual queen size bed which can be prepared together or individually as two twin beds, wall-to-wall closet with lots of storage space and polished terrazzo floors. The second bedroom has two twin beds (not combinable), also with ample closet space and hardwood floors.

Bathrooms

Off the hallway are two bathrooms. One with toilet, sink, shower. The other with bathtub with shower sprayer attachment, toilet, sink, bidet.

Our Review

  • Terrace, although small, is a wonderful feature. Stunning views!
  • Fantastic location, everything is walkable
  • Sunny and bright
  • Spacious, well laid out. Fully appointed, even has A/C in the kitchen and a laundry room with washer and dryer, rare finds.
  • Living room gets full afternoon sun, so we recommend drawing the curtains during the height of the summer season in the afternoons, early evenings.
  • Bustling pedestrian area down below. Double glazed windows dampen the noise.

Our Guest Reviews

A wonderful trip!
Dec 2017

We had a wonderful trip and your organized accommodations and support people were terrific. The locations were wonderful and the units perfect. Isabel helped us with our selection of restaurants and making reservations for us and for her advice. We only used a "guide" once for the Vatican, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peters and she was great. We learned not only about the art and monuments, but also about the history that is so important. We walked about 5-7 miles per day and used public transportation successfully. Both Rome and Florence were wonderful as we remembered from before. Thank you for your great help. We will support and recommend you - Italy Perfect - and probably use Paris Perfect and London Perfect in the future. We greatly appreciated getting to "know" you and learning from you and your teams.

Great location in Florence
Nov 2017

We were two couples spending a month in Italy and we spent 5 days in Florence at the Memoria. The apartment balcony looks over the Arno River and the Ponte Vecchio. We could open the large sliding glass doors to the balcony and enjoy the noise and excitement of the city, and when we closed the windows, the apartment became very quiet. The apartment was very spacious, light-filled, and clean. The beds were comfortable, as was the furniture in the sitting area. There was an eating area in the large kitchen and a charming dining room. This was our second week of travel and we loved the actual laundry room with ironing board, iron, washer and dryer. Another huge plus was the elevator for the times we didn't feel like taking the stairs to the fourth floor.

It was a few minutes walk to anything we wanted to do in Florence. The Uffizi is a mere block away, several excellent grocery stores were nearby, and it was maybe a 5 -10 minute walk to the Duomo or the Mercato Centralo (a must visit for lunch while in Florence). Perfect location.

Italy Perfect was easy to work with and provided all the local info we needed. If we return to Florence we will rent this apartment again.

Our stay was a delight!
Nov 2017

Our stay in Memoria in October was a delight! We couldn’t have asked for a better location or more comfortable place to be for our ten days in Florence. The views are incredible, the beds are excellent, the kitchen is more than adequate, the living room furniture is very comfortable, and I could go on. One minor concern that we had prior to getting there is possible noise from the Ponte Vecchio area; however, with the windows closed the apartment is silent. We also found that opening the windows for a few hours during the middle of the night was very acceptable for fresh-air addicts. The only possible drawback of the apartment is the small second bathroom; it was fine for the couple that was with us, but would be too small for very large people. And speaking of the other couple, the two bedrooms are virtually the same so there is no issue about one couple getting an inferior bedroom.
[Thank you so much Anne! The Italy Perfect Team]

If the Vasari Corridor did not turn at the end of the Ponte Vecchio...
Oct 2017

... it would pass through the apartment below A memorable location and view. The balcony drew us back repeatedly for morning coffee, apperitivo and nightcaps. Two couples thoroughly enjoyed their late September week at Memoria. The apartment is spacious, spotless, secure, nicely furnished and quiet. The first bedroom and first bath are especially comfortable. The second bedroom and second bath are smaller, typical of most city apartments. I feel quite comfortable recommending Memoria and Italy Perfect to others. Enjoy.

Lovely accommodation
Sep 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at the Memoria apartment. The location and the view of the Arno from the living room window are great! The apartment is well equipped, and everything functioned well. The Sapori & Dintorni market just across the river has everything one needs.

We were fortunate to arrive in Florence just as the "Lucifer" heatwave broke, and so it was pleasant walking all over town. Our recommendation for visitors include the Museo dell' Opera del Duomo (particularly for the statuary) and the only 20th century art museum in town, the Museo Novecento. Trattoria Sostanza (no credit cards accepted) has their signature buttery chicken and artichoke pie dishes which are simply marvelous. Note to all: avoid Zeb Gastronomia. Despite the NY Times recommendation, the chef/owner is a pompous, pretentious bully who doesn't respect his North American customers. Lo Spillo on Borgo San Jacopo is a unique, tiny shop with affordable handmade jewelry.

Special thanks to Pat who patiently answered all my questions concerning the apartment. Also thanks to our "greeter", Isabel, who is accommodating and very knowledgeable.

Wonderful Apartment
Aug 2017

I just wanted to thank Lisa and Isabella for all their help in making this vacation so wonderful.
They were very helpful before and while we were at the apartment.
The rooms were very nice and clean which is very important to me. They were a very nice size and the AC worked very well. We loved the outside patio.
We took a tour with Isabella of the Oltrarno which was very informative. We really felt that at the end of our trip we were from Florence.
Thanks to Donatella for keeping the apartment so clean while we were there.

Florence Perfect
Jul 2017

Memoria is ideally located for exploring all of the charms of Florence. The apartment is right on the Arno River less than 1/2 a block from the Ponte Vecchio bridge. It is a lovely apartment, comfortable, light and airy, with everything you could want. The views from in the terrace in the early morning before the crowds stream to the Uffizi are wonderful. The photos really do not do it justice.If you were going to live in Florence, you would want to live here. The apartment is within walking distance of just about everything. There is a great grocery store just across the bridge, the Uffizi is just down the street, and a 10 minute stroll takes you to the Domo and the other major sites. We will be back and hope to re-book Memoria. I give this apartment a 10 out of 10, highly recommended. Our greater was fantastic, very helpful, and gave us lots of good recommendations as to restaurants, etc.

Superior accommodations and service to match
Jun 2017

Couldn't have asked for a better location for exploring all that Florence has to offer. The team at Italy Perfect (Pat and Lisa) are phenomenal!!! Their communications, coordination, and friendly assistance were spectacular. They went out their way to assist with travel to wine country, and recommend good local restaurants (not touristy.)

The property is decorated to a very high standard - everything you need is there. The views are spectacular!! Isabel the greeter was on time, helpful, friendly, and available as needed (assisted with booking transportation.)

My wife and I travel extensively, and are pretty demanding when it comes to where we stay.

We highly recommend this property.

Outstanding Florence Experience
Mar 2017

The absolute best accommodation experience anyone could get in Florence. The apartment is beautiful and very spacious but the location is nothing short of remarkable. We enjoyed our balcony every morning for breakfast and every night for appetizers. It is the perfect location for touring and really feeling like you are living like a local. Will remember this accommodation for a long time. Isabel, our greeter, was marvelous and very attentive and helped organized a wonderful excursion to Sienna.
