We had a fantastic stay at Stefano's place which is one block from the Plaza Republica and close to the Duomo and Palazzo Veccio. Super convenient to all the major tourist sites. Lots of great places to eat and shop on the street. From the apartment, we enjoyed looking out the windows to watch the action on the street below but understand some may find it too noisy or busy. Stefano is an excellent host. Stefano's 2 bedroom listing is like a suite that combines a 1 bedroom flat (w double bed and small single twin) and studio (with 2 "murphy fold down" twin beds) so we had one galley kitchen, a small kitchenette (in the studio) and two full bathrooms. We really enjoyed all the wonderful Florence restaurants so appreciated being able to reheat/microwave our takeaways and leftovers. All the beds were comfortable and the air conditioning worked perfectly! Please note that if you are seeking a quiet place to escape a city's hustle and bustle, this probably would not be a good fit.
