"Allen and I enjoyed our five week stay in the Prisco Apt. in Florence Italy. ( This was our second extended stay in that apartment. ) All remained the same as when we said good bye a year ago - except, and this was very important to us, for a much improved internet connection. Absolutely enjoyed revisiting old favorites ( Ristorante Pensavo Peggio on Via Del Moro, Dei Frescobaldi on Via die Magazzini, ,Perche No? on Via de Tavolini , etc. ) and discovering new ones including Farmaceutica of Santa Maria Novella on Via della Scala, Antico Sertificio Fiorentino (silk factory) on Via Bartolini, Casa Rodolfo Silviero (small museum) on Lungarno Serristori, etc. Love Florence, love the Prisco and hope to return again soon ."

"A wonderful little house steps from the Ponte Vecchio. It had everything one could want for a stay in Florence, including a gift of flowers, wine, fruit and sweets from the owners. Lots of restaurants in the area, as well as a grocery store nearby. We couldn't have asked for anything more!"
"We absolutely loved the Strozzi apartment and plan to stay there again as soon as possible. We may not make it back until September,2010, but you will definitely hear from us well in advance of the trip, to reserve that marvelous apartment. Many, many thanks to you and your team at Italy Perfect for a memorable and satisfying visit to Florence."
"Thank you again for a wonderful place to stay while we were in Italy. The service was excellent as well. The family was so friendly."
"I had a wonderful time in Florence. The apartment was in a great location and Miki and Franco were wonderful!! They were so helpful and so kind. I just can't say enough kind things about them! I definitely want to go back!!
The studio was just fine for me. Shopping was great, food was wonderful and all your information was helpful. Thank you so much. "
"Just wanted to post a review for the awesome apartment Flaminio we stayed in during our recent visit to Rome. From the start Lisa at Italy Perfect was helpful and responsive. Having been to Rome before I knew this was the perfect location, close to the subway and next to Piazza del Popolo which branches out with three very walkable streets. One to Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain, one to the Victor Emmanuel monument and the colosseum and the other to the pantheon and Piazza Navona with great shopping and restaurants along the way. The apartment itself was beautiful with everything we needed even english books to read. There were two gelato shops close by with the "real" gelato (we learned about on a food tour). We also used Italy Perfect's recommended private concierge Carolina for a palace tour and a cooking class in her home(we used the well stocked kitchen at the apartment to try the techniques we learned in the class). From coffee on the wraparound balcony to comfortable beds it really was perfect."
"Our family traveled to Italy this past August and stayed in the Pasquino apartment. With two teenage daughters, the apartment worked beautifully as it gave us more room than we would otherwise have in two hotel rooms. The apartment was ideally located in the historic center of Rome, and we were able to walk to most major attractions of the city. The apartment was clean and well furnished. While we did not cook in the apartment it appeared to be set up just fine. There were just too many good restaurants nearby. It was nice to have a large refrigerator for the essentials and milk for breakfast, though. Pat gave us great guidance on the apartment and the overall service was terrific. We have already recommended Italyperfect to some friends. -Scott H."
"We enjoyed our stay in Florence and in Prisco apartment. We had an excellent stay. The location was perfect for walking to every thing. Franco and Miki are wonderful hosts, very attentive to the needs of their guests. The apartment was very attractive, and fully equipped, lovely furnishings. The kitchen could use a good omelette pan.The location is ideal. Nothing is too far away. It is close to SITA bus station and main railway station making out of town day trip travel very easy. The butcher, a bakery, sausage and cheese shops are on the same street. A vegetable market is on a next street. One can never forget Rosticceria for freshly roasted chicken, meat and vegetables when one did not want to cook or go out to restaurant. We made evening dinners from pre-prepared ingredients that were every bit as good as any restaurant meal. We enjoyed shopping for fresh pasta, marinated vegetables, fresh vegetables,meat etc. at the Central Market which is very close. We really enjoyed shopping in Oltrano side just off the bridge for fresh vegetables, fresh eggs and biscotti next door to vegetable market. One can not forget Conad off Ponte Vecchio Bridge in Oltrano for dairy products and day to day groceries etc. The two restaurants next to the building are also good as also Cavalli's across the street. One really enjoys various window displays as you walk by the very upmarket stores in the immediate neighbour hood. The apartment was spacious. The bed room was really noise free when the door was closed to the living room. The kitchen, dining and living room area had three large windows bringing in hustle and bustle of the street and lot of day light as well"
"Casetta Bonsi in Florence was great. You know Maurizio is a great guy, very helpful and also the place was impeccable. You have a great partner in Maurizio. He is the best."
"Thank you so much. I really appreciate that. The apartment was great. Great area and everything perfect! I recommended your site to some other parents that will be visiting their kids in Florence who are on the same study program w/my daughter and will as well to anyone else that I hear of travels coming up. Thanks so much again! If and when I return to Florence or to any of your other locations, I will definitely be in touch! "
"My stay was nice. Miki and Franco were amazing to us. SO sweet. The apartment was nice and clean. Still am hoping to stay in the Medici when I come back! WANTING TO COME BACK! So anxious to visit again. It was wonderful. BTW, the guys in the restaurant next to you are so great as well. We ate there quite a bit. Thanks again."
"Thanks again for all of your help in getting us set up in Roma. The trip was amazing - everything was perfect... Italy Perfect! The apartments [Sabini & Flaminio] you helped me book were excellent and really worked well for us. I greatly appreciate your help in helping me pull off a last minute escape. Without you andItaly Perfect, I could not have done it. "
"We stayed at the Paquino apartment which is in a wonderful location. We were able to walk all over historic Rome and enjoyed this clean, spacious apartment. We found excellent small food shops nearby to stock the pantry. Both tea and coffee were already provided, so that was a huge plus the first morning! We loved Piazza Navona and ate in several of the restaurants there. At night it was alive with performance artists and people out for a stroll. Our son was especially pleased because at the Irish Pub just down the street he was able to watch his beloved Vikings play football one evening, even though they lost! We highly recommend this apartment."
"Our hosts were terrific - warm and welcoming - as was our experience booking through Italy Perfect. The apartment was well maintained, spacious, and included essential amenities. Prisco is extremely well located and yet the anomaly of being situated at the junction of three streets creates an astounding noise level. The owners have attempted to address this problem by sound-proofing the bedroom, which is quiet with the door shut, but airless. [Note from ItalyPerfect: there is a combination fan/air conditioner in the bedroom.] If you are counting on using the sleeper sofa in the living room, that guest or guests will need ear-plugs. I would recommend one of the interior units in the same building. The materials provided by Italy Perfect, and their responsiveness and overall efficiency were greatly appreciated. We would definitely use this company again."

"Casetta Bonsi and the owner's provide a perfect stay in Florence. The apartment is in a fabulous location and packed with helpful information. It is truly just like being at home. Maurizio is so helpful and available for your every need. Italy Perfect is absolutely the best online site for accommodations and have all the information you need to travel to Italy. We will use them again when traveling abroad.
One thing I would do differently is to make sure I had a very good walking map and stop at the official Tourist office to obtain a bus schedule and information on the bus line."

"We had a WONDERFUL time in Florence. The apartment was perfect in every way-very comfortable, cozy, clean, and well located. Miki and Franco were very gracious and informative. Mary and I toured the city for all 5 days and wish we would have been able to stay another week or two. You and Italy Perfect are to be congratulated on how well you prepare your guests for their upcoming vacations. We will definitely use you and properties when we head to Rome and Paris in the future. Thank you for everything."
"Loved Casa San Vito and Francesco - his parents are so sweet. I brought home some of their olive oil. I would definitely recommend both places to friends. Thanks for all of your help."
"We felt so welcome in Florence and the studio worked well for us. Having the common space made it feel larger. Miki and Franco were amazing and we all communicated fine. The location was a bonus. Thanks for all your suggestions- they worked."
"Fantastic location and perfect for any travelers, including families. Convenient access (within 2 blocks of metro) to all sights, and nearby restaurants (close, but not too close) within walking distance. From the moment we met the doorman and were introduced to the property by our assigned host, we knew it would be fabulous. Comfortable and spacious with all the amenities of even the most spoiled traveler (WiFi, Television, fully equipped kitchen, written resources and guides to the area, etcetera). I would absolutely recommend this location and Italy Perfect to a friend, and if we ever plan our trip to Tuscany, we will call on Italy Perfect to help us!
Thanks so much Andrea, we are delighted to have satisfied a spoiled traveler."
"The apartment was wonderful, the location was wonderful and the service was wonderful."
