Il Rifugio, appartamento per Turisti a Firenze

Il Rifugio is an holiday apartment in Florence with an independent entrance to host from two to four people, as families or small groups of friends. It’s composed by a comfortable and large living room with kitchen, bathroom with shower cabin and a double bedroom. In the living room there is a comfortable matrimonial sofa bed. For the little ones a called “camping” bed is available.

The Rifugio is extremely fresh: its name is caused by its use as a war shelter during the second world war.

I’m a tour guide: having the possibility to flank the management of a holiday apartment has always been my dream!

It will be a pleasure host you and make you feel at home! If you want some more informations about the Rifugio you can use the form. You can also send me a message e-mail at info@ guidaturisticaperfirenze.com or an sms or whatsapp at +39 3381705461 (or call me if you prefere).

The main monuments are very close and you can join them by feet, bike or bus (bus stop is at 150 mt from Il Rifugio).

Il Rifugio is in Gioberti Street area, one of the most important shopping streets of Florence (it is also called the street of the 100 “Botteghe”, Shops). At the beginnig and at the end of the street there are two broad parkings (Alberti Square, 260 mt from Il Rifugio, Beccaria Square, 700 mt from Il Rifugio). You can park your car along the street where there is the apartment (parking tickets).

Arriving by train s extremely usefull: the trainstation of Santa Maria Novella is at 3 kilometres and you can reach Il Rifugio by feet or with the bus number 6 (bus stop: out from the trainstation, crossing the street in Station Square, close to the Burger King, bus stop number FM1834.

Giulia was great, very quick to reply and always helpful. Her place was amazing too! Near a lot of cool places, but quiet enough to get a good night sleep! Definitely recommend it.

Had a great time in Giulia's home! The house was very clean and comfortable, and

Giulia was very accommodating to any question we had. The location was a bit farther than we expected (from the Duomo), but it didn't bother us because the walk was a simple route.

Descrizione della casa pari al vero. Molto ben fornita e carina nei dettagli. Ottima ospitalità sia per la mia famiglia che per il mio animale domestico. Ottima posizione: fornita, tranquilla e vicina al centro. Nulla di negativo. Consigliatissima.

Staying at the Rifugio was great! The only downside is that my friends and I were traveling during summer so Florence was a bit and it was also hot during the night. We did have a fan provided by the guest however, no AC. Nonetheless, the space was very cute and we were able to use all the amenities. Giulia was a great host and made sure that we had everything!
