"I could not have picked a more perfect place to stay in beautiful Venezia. Paola greeted me at the water taxi and escorted me to her lovely flat. She also walked me to the local grocery store so I could buy food for the week. The flat was location on a quiet side street blocks from the Piazza St. Marco, surrounded by amazing restaurants. Paola was a gracious host and was always available for any questions. I will be making this an annual trip to her place. Thank you again Paola. [It was a delight to host you, Donna.

"I was really comfortable in this flat. (We originally scheduled a different flat from ItalyPerfect, but there was a problem with the air conditioning in that one, so they gave us this much larger flat to substitute.) The place was just enormous, with five bedrooms and three bathrooms. The think I liked most was that the kitchen was well-stocked: I've stayed in so many AirBnBs in the past without adequate kitchen equipment. The apartment was very quiet, which is important to me. The noise from the street isn't very much because it isn't a busy street and if you shut the windows it isn't noticeable at all. The local host, Barbara, was quite helpful and friendly. They sent a housekeeper once a week to do the cleaning which was really helpful for us."

"We had a wonderful time! The place was large, beautiful and well-located. Our host met us on time and was helpful at the end in particular when we left a cell phone behind. She went above and beyond to get it shipped to us. We will definitely stay here again. Thank you!"

"Our stay, reserved just a few weeks before arrival, came together beautifully thanks to Italy Perfect's fast work and their Rome-based team. The apartment itself is lovely and the neighborhood is wonderful. They organized a good driver service from Venice and to Positano, an electric golf cart for touring and other services that enhanced our comfort and eased our concerns."

"When at the last minute our family vacation to Portugal fell apart we had to pivot quickly and opted for a trip to Rome. In reading the reviews and descriptions of various AirBnBs we settled on this apartment overlooking Piazza de Pasquino. Our driving reason was the mentions regarding the friendliness of the ItalyPerfect staff. They did not disappoint. Within 15 minutes of booking we were on the phone with Pat and she walked us through everything and put us at ease. That alone was enough for us to know we had made the right decision in booking. The apartment itself matched the photos exactly. Charming, lots of space, all the amenities. My family loved the apartment. I know there are some comments in the reviews on street noise. While my wife Michelle and I both love our quiet rural home where you can hear a pin drop in the states we both agreed you can't trade where this apartment is for the times in the evening where performers in the Piazza could be heard entertaining people dining below. Why do we have this feeling? You are steps from Piazza Navona. There are a dozen great restaurants that are less than a 5 minute walk from the apartment. We absolutely loved the restaurant across the street and went there multiple times (their Sicilian fried eggplant was simply amazing). One day we walked to the Vatican, Spanish steps and the Pantheon. There is also a street market that has fresh fruits and vegetables every morning less than 5 minute walk away. Do not hesitate to book this apartment. You will not regret the experience the location provides. My wife and twin 12 year old daughters also wholeheartedly agree!"

"Italy Perfect exceeded our expectations. We used them in Venice, Rome and Florence. Pat and the Italy Perfect team did everything possible to ensure we picked the right properties and looked after us from the time we booked to the time we departed. This was everything we hoped for visiting another country. Handled COVID delays and the constant confusing rule changes. I will recommend them to friends and anyone visiting Italy. Thank you Italy Perfect! You made our trip memorable, relaxing and enjoyable"

"I am absolutely blown away by the lovely accommodation. The attention to detail is so impressive. I have stayed in VRBO properties all over the world and yours is the best. I have several friends travelling to Florence within the next year and I will be recommending this apartment to everyone. Thank you so much for everything again. I could go on and on about how lovely the apartment is, thank you for the privilege of allowing us to stay here. Charissa"

"The apartment is located in a perfect position, close to Ponte Vecchio and Palazzo Pitti. There is also a very good supermarket really nearby. We enjoyed our staying very much, the place feels homey, it is very spacious and it is equipped with new appliances, it is full of light, bed are super comfy and so is the sofa. The only problem was we could not stay longer!"

"While we had high hopes for our family week in Florence with our 3 grown up children; Miravista clearly exceeded our expectations. It was a very comfortable, nicely understated decorated, with good 2 1/2 bathrooms and ample kitchen, sunny penthouse. While it had a good modern elevator, other than the day we arrived and departed with the luggage, the 5 of us (age 63, 61, our children 34, 31 and 29) always preferred the fun of enjoying to walk up and down the 92 steps; particularly after a nice dinner. Unfortunately, the weather was a bit cold as to enjoy the beautiful terrace overlooking the Plaza and the mountains; if it were spring or summer we would have spent long hours there... Waking up and having a leisure breakfast in front of the large window and terrace overlooking the Plaza was a fantastic way to start the day. The restaurant below was one of the best we had and at good prices; the owners and staff were incredibly friendly; we spent new year's eve with them. The location was great; just a 3 block walk to most of the landmarks...and yet quiet enough from the bulk of the tourists. Finally, the host was very educated and made our checkin / checkout a breeze. In addition, Pat Byrne was incredibly friendly and efficient and was making sure our reservation, paperwork and itinerary was up to date....Thank you Pat & Madelyne!

"A week at Italy Perfect's Villa Sole was definitely a Perfect family vacation. The property is beautiful and very well maintained. There was plenty of room for our family of twelve, and the accommodations were lovely. The views were magnificent, particularly the sunsets over the Bay of Naples with Capri and Ischia in the distance. There are even lemon trees on the property with an abundance of fruit to admire and possibly pick. We found the area very convenient for our needs. We did rent a car for necessary grocery runs, etc., but the cab service (through Persico) was convenient, and the boat we had prearranged was able to pick us up at the dock at Marina della Lobra, a short, pleasant walk from the Villa. That small port also includes a few restaurants and a convenience story that is amazing -- both for the variety of items they sell and for how helpful the owners/clerks are. They even called a cab for our sons one day! Our greeter, Tina, was helpful and extremely pleasant. She was quick to respond to our questions and requests . The owners were more than accommodating, even stopping by to bring chocolate eggs to our young granddaughter during her birthday celebration. The breakfast and 2 dinners prepared by the in-house chef were delicious with all fresh, local ingredients and baked goods -- definitely a plus with little children. Our experience with Italy Perfect was very positive. Lisa, our salesperson , was responsive and enabled us to get a good sense of the villa. I would, however, suggest that anyone renting for the first time (as I was) carefully read the details on-line about the specific property, as the contracts vary greatly in areas of security deposits, cleaning, washers and dryers, etc. Overall our stay at Villa Sole was a beautiful family escape, and my wish is that we can all return some day. [We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay and vacation! We look forward to working with you again! The Italy Perfect Team]"

"This was a great location for our family group of 6. The best part was the easy access to the Gelateria dei Neri, best in Florence. The grocery was a few blocks. There were several excellent restaurants in the immediate area, but our favorite was the Acqua al 2 (get the blueberry steak). Florence is very walkable and this apartment was on the edge of the tourist area. It was fun watching the crowds in the Piazza. They were a little noisy at times but the bedrooms are in the back away from the noise. Our greeter was helpful in getting us oriented. She also pointed to a driver who came at 4:30 AM to get us to the airport in Florence for the flight home. [Thank you for your great review! We are glad that you had an amazing stay!

"This 2-bedroom 2-bath apartment south of the Arno is perfectly located for a visit to Florence. It is within walking distance of the Ponte Vecchio and all the hustle and bustle of Florence, yet it is removed enough to provide for quiet evenings and great nights' sleep. The apartment is clean, fully equipped, and large. The staff both locally, the greeter, and the staff in the United States, with whom we booked, were extremely helpful and very accessible. This is a five star accommodation and we will highly recommend it to anyone and everyone we know traveling to Florence. [Thank you for your kind review. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to working with you again. The Italy Perfect Team]

"Thinking about booking this apartment? Do it now! Alcove apartment is a very spacious home located overlooking Piazza Santa Croce. The apartment is very accommodating for 6 - 8 guests. Every space is comfortable. The beds are very comfortable and the bed linens and pillows are plush. The bedrooms and bathrooms are all amazing, so no one will feel slighted. The one bedroom cannot convert the twin beds to one bed, but the room is still very spacious and the bathroom has a great shower. All of the bedrooms are on the quiet side of the apartment, even though we didn't find the crowds on the Piazza to be noisy at all. The kitchen is very well stocked. The laundry room with separate washer and dryer is a real plus. The location is a good one if you enjoy this side of the river; an easy walk to the train station and all of the Florence attractions. Check in/out was very easy and the utilities were reasonable for our 21 night stay. Some recommendations in/around the Santa Croce area: Boccadama is located on the lower level of the palace and serves very good lasagna and pear ravioli; a great place to crash for dinner at the end of a long day. There is also a Conad (small grocery store chain Corso dei Tintori, 10/R, 50122 Firenze FI, Italy ) around the corner (behind the building) that is not mentioned in the information book; perhaps it's newer. It's a City version, but still good in a pinch. Foody Farm (next to Conad) was really good for a non-Italian meal; the menu was really interesting and the food was delicious (casual night out). The Gallery (2 minute walk) has a great apertivo that starts at 6:30PM. For $10-$12 you get a cocktail and a very good buffet with hot and cold food items. Inferno (Via de' Pepi 9R – Firenze) was excellent and filled with locals. We tried a little of everything. The entrees and salads are not necessarily prepared in a traditional way, but amazing. This is the place to get Seafood. I would recommend Inferno for a nice night out. OK, let's talk gelato. I am by no means an expert, but I have been in Florence nearly a dozen times and I would say, hands down, Dei Neri is the best gelato in Florence (Neri, 9, 50122 Firenze FI, Italy). Good news - it's a really quick walk from the apartment! They have a great yogurt gelato and their ricotta cream with pistachio topping is my favorite! Lisa Byrne is still the best in the business and you will not be disappointed with her service, prices, and accommodations! [Thank you so much for your lovely review and recommendations, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you again! The Italy Perfect Team]

"My sister and I recently spent a week in Florence and we LOVED this spacious, light-filled apartment. It's in a perfect location on the quiet side of the Arno where excellent restaurants, lovely shops and peaceful neighborhood streets abound. Yet it's in easy walking distance to just about everything. The views over the Arno, and including the Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi, are heavenly and quintessentially Florentine. The apartment is comfortably furnished with high quality furniture, linens and appointments. We really lacked for nothing. Instructions from our greeter were thorough and a written packet with map, directions and suggestions is in the apartment. The building is very secure with a doorman on duty weekdays and is relatively quiet, especially given that this apartment is on the top floor. I have rented apartments in Italy before, but this one is at the top of the list. Highly recommended. [Thank you Deborah, we are happy you enjoyed staying at the Caravella and hope to welcome you again! The Italy Perfect Team]
