Meghan: Alessandra’s apartment is in a great location. It’s on a quiet street but so close to the Accademia, the main church, Ponte Vecchio, grocery stores and great restaurants. We walked across the river to Fort Belvedere and the Boboli gardens as well from the apartment. It’s close to the train station, bus stations, etc. We will stay there again when we visit Florence in the future. Alessandra is also a tour guide and we hired her for a private tour of the surrounding neighborhoods and city attractions. She was great! Her Italian history is super impressive and we had a lot of fun with her. She is super nice – we enjoyed our time immensely in Florence at her apartment (which is very clean, spacious and has everything you need for your stay).
