Location

Located in a Renaissance palazzo directly across the river from the Uffizi Gallery, Florence`s most famous museum. You`ll enjoy beautiful views of Florence and the Arno river.

Exterior

The building blends with its Renaissance-age neighbors with grey stone, pietra serena, accenting its classical proportions. The building is locked and has a doorman during business hours.

Interior

Enter Caravella into the dining room that contains a square table and that also serves as an entry with a closet for holding coats and luggage.

The living room is brightly and pleasantly furnished. A three-seat sofa and two upholstered chairs and some extra chairs create a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. Antique furniture pieces help you get the feel of the beauty of Florence. Oriental carpets over parquet floors throughout the apartment.

Gazing out the window is a delight for the panorama of the iconic Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery, the Church of Santa Croce and many other landmarks of the city of art. We  enjoy this view when we stay in this fine palazzo.

Our family of 4 loved staying in this apartment. There was a lot of space, especially for European accommodations. The location and view is fantastic. We will stay here again. [We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to working with you again! The Italy Perfect Team]

Caravella Review

by CJ
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]

Caravella Review

by Deborah
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]

We thoroughly enjoyed our one week stay in Caravella in Florence. The location was wonderful. Quiet, beautiful, close to wonderful attractions on each side of the river. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was great to cook in and well stocked with anything needed for meal prep. Wonderful views! We would stay there again. [Thank you Barrett, we are pleased you enjoyed staying at the Caravella! The Italy Perfect Team]

Caravella Review

by Jack D
This was our fourth stay with Italy Perfect and second in Florence. That alone should speak to our satisfaction with our stays. This apartment is great for us but also has a second bedroom and complete second bath. The furnishings were quite nice, the bed we used ( master) was very comfortable. The kitchen was complete and large by most European standards. A dishwasher and washer with dryer built in also were quite nice to have. The building overlooking the Arno, Uffizi and Ponte Vecchio were postcard fantasy shots. there is good security with locking doors and a door man during the day. Excellent apartment, excellent location and excellent value. [Thank you so much Jack, we are happy you enjoyed your stay, please come again! The Italy Perfect Team]

We couldn't have been happier with our choice of the Caravella apartment. The view is timeless, across the river to the famous buildings, spires and domes of the city. The furnishings top quality. Apartment in excellent shape. Overall very comfortable. The service of Italy Perfect and the onsite staff, well, perfect!

Caravella Review

by Joyce & H.T.
We were very pleased with the apartment; it was spacious and elegant with a magnificent view of the Arno River, Ponte Vecchio and the museums across the river. It was within easy walking distance of the major attractions and there were numerous restaurants in the area. They were good but it seems the quality of food seems to have gone down versus our earlier trip to Italy in the mid-80's. That is not to say the food was bad, there just weren't any 'Ah-Ha' moments. Believe the food would have been better away from the cities. There is an excellent grocery store within a few hundred meters of the apartment that we made good use of. Like the French, the Italians don't seem to be much on breakfast. Believe we hit the weather just right. A little later and things would have been uncomfortably warm. Support staff in Florence was great! They were very cordial and helpful for the few requests we made. In fact, the same can be said of all the Italian people we ran into. FYI, we had spent a week in Rome before taking the train to Florence. Many of the comments about Florence, especially the restaurants, held true there as well. The only negative we had was our departure from the Florence Airport. No one seemed to be in charge. There were long lines that you really weren't sure of whether you were in the right one or not. Quite frankly, it reminded us of our days living in the middle east. Guess the best take away is be sure to have plenty of time allocated to airport activities.

Best location, just a few steps from Ponte Vecchio on the Oltro Arno side. Apartment was spacious, clean, and comfortable. Made extensive use of the kitchen due to convenient supermarket just two blocks away. Look forward to returning someday!

by Penelope Lara
Could not have been more pleased with the beautiful apartment with spectacular view of the Arno with the Ponte Vecchio on the left and beautiful Florence in front. The Italian hosts were helpful, warm and welcoming. We would definitely stay again. The location is great close enough to everything, yet far enough for quiet.

Caravella Review

by HR
After staying in Florence as a couple or solo a few times, it was time to find a 'family' apartment for a summer vacation. AC and American amenities were desired for two young adult sons and husband comfort. The apartment suited our needs perfectly. The apartment was cool during a very hot, humid stretch of weather. After traveling for weeks and eating out, it was nice to fix some meals in the well equipped kitchen and do some laundry. The location was great. It was super easy to get to all our favorite places in Florence, and discover new ones. Street level next door is a gelato place and a fab restaurant nearby Bar Golden View is very good. Overall, everything was very nice.

Italy Perfect was a great rental company. They helped us create a perfect vacation. Our group was 12 people, and everyone had a wonderful time and did not want to return to the US. The location os the apartment was great, because we had a supermarket, a juice bar, a gelateria and a restaurant for lazy nights. We can't stop talking about Florence, the apartment and food!

Awesome ancient bridge over Florence's Arno river that has survived 800 years. Famous for the shops of goldsmiths along its length.
Boboli Gardens (10 mins Walking)
Expansive and beautiful gardens behind the famous Pitti Palace with statues including the fat man (Bacchus) on the turtle.
Pitti Palace (10 mins Walking)
The famous Medici family's home, it is a large museum with many fascinating galleries. It opens to the large Boboli gardens that may be visited separately. I the origin of the Vasari Corridor, an enclosed, protective "bridge" between the palace and the Medici offices at the Uffizi.
Uffizi Gallery (10 mins Walking)
One of the greatest museums in the world. The defining collection of Renaissance art. A tour is recommended.
Duomo (15 mins Walking)
Florence's famous and glorious cathedral, Santa Maria del Fiore, beautiful to gaze at since the 1300s. Don't miss and, if you can, read about -- then visit the amazing dome by Brunelleschi erected without scaffolding!
Piazza della Repubblica (15 mins Walking)
A great piazza of Florence. The shape reflects its role as the forum in Roman times. Now it has fine palaces and a triumphal arch and colonnaded sidewalks. You will see street artists, impromptu musical performances and a colorful merry-go-round. Glitterati in the fancy cafes.
