Neighborhood / Apartment / Agency in Florence - Help needed

Jump to last reply

Just to start, I have researched Tripadvisor, Fodors, SlowTravel and Rick Steves already, but I am looking for specific information on a few apartments and locations in Florence so I can finalize my booking.

Interested in safety, noise, character, quality of the neighborhoods, apartments and agencies. Also convenience and ease to get into the main part of the town (between the Duomo and Ponte Vecchio)book my apartment.

Also, for those in the Oltrano, where can you walk across the river to get to the main sights?

Everyones help would be greatly appreciated as this will be a trip for my family of five (husband/wife and 3 kids ages 10, 13 and 16) and I want everyone to be happy.

Via Velluti @ Via Toscanella
The apartments are called the Palazzo Belfiore (offered by multiple agencies including Rental in Florence and SPQR opinions on them would be helpful)

Borgo San Frediano
(about 1 block from the Ponte bridge near the intersection of via de Serragli and Borgo San Frediano)
Apartment is called Caeser (offered by Italianizeme - opinions on them too)

Piazza Signoria (don't know the street, but it is right on the Piazza)
Apartment is called In Centro (offered by Ville in Italia so once again opinions are helpful)

Via dei Bastioni
Apartment called Villa Bastioni (offered by Holiday Homes Tuscany opinions welcomed)

Via Vigna Nuova N° 17
Apartment is called Vigna Nuova (offered by House in Florence - opinions welcomed also)

Piazza dei Ciompi overlook (I believe between Via de Mezzo and Via de Pietrapiana)
Apartments in the Palazzo Cavaliere (although I think they are known by other names depending upon the agency) called Ghibeti and Gucciardani offered by Excellent Europe (opinions welcomed).
