Piero’s place was just fabulous! We travelled to Florence for 5 days and were welcomed to the apartment by Piero’s friend Raffaella who made us feel as if we were coming home from the first second. The apartment is extremely comfortable, cosy, and perfectly located, in the heart of the city, great to discover Florence - all the main attractions are at the « doorstep ». Raffaella was extremely helpful to provide us tips on restaurants and specific local places that we should visit - all the recommendations that we followed made our stay in Florence most enjoyable and fun! Raffaella was also easily reachable anytime, e.g. via (Hidden by Airbnb) , and very responsive to any questions we had. Actually both Piero and Raffaella sent us additional information prior to the travel to best plan the visits. Staying at Piero’s place would be my first choice if travelling to Florence (Website hidden by Airbnb) far the best Airbnb experience I’ve had! You feel embrassed by the love and pride that Piero and Raffaella have for their city which gives an additional authentic touch to the journey.
A very large spacious apartment with high ceilings, lovely decor and the feel of a private home. Wonderful location in Florence with perfect walk-ability to absolutely every sight. Piero was a great host including assisting with restaurant reservations in advance which was very appreciated.
Fantastic location. Easy to pop back for a rest and to cool down at any point in the day. Very comfortable, quiet and spacious apartment.
Everything was great: the check in, the apartment itself . It’s very spacious and well lit . The location is superb . We enjoyed our stay!
The location of the apartment is fantastic. Centrally located to all places of interest. The apartment was spotless clean and Piero had added nice personal touches to the entire apartment which was a delight. Piero was available during our check-in process and he spent good time with us in helping to know the entire locality better. His suggestions on places to eat, shopping for groceries and other shopping etc. were indeed valuable. Interaction with Piero for any query or assistance was efficient and response was received immediately. The kitchen was very well equipped with utensils and also other food (i.e. oil, sugar, tea etc.) items. In some reviews, we had observed about the issue of less water pressure while using both toilettes simultaneously however, we did not felt any such issue during the stay. Thank you Piero for making our stay at Florence truly delightful experience. We will stay in touch and hope to meet you sometime in future. Best wishes and regards.
We had a most wonderful stay at Asso’s Place for 3 nights. Being seasoned Airbnb travellers we are still very so blown away by the apartment and the hospitality of Piero and Raffaella. Arriving late on the first night from the airport, Raffaella greeted us at the apartment at almost midnight, taking us through the grand almost majestic living room with view of the Duomo, the heart of Florence city that the apartment is only 5 mins walk to it, two good size high ceiling yet very cosy bedrooms with fresh flowers and natural scent of tea leaves, and a balcony that was lovely to sit outside anytime of the day. The thoughtful and generous hosts have also prepared and given us milk, sparkling water as well as champagne and red wine from a friend’s winery. We are also extremely grateful for their help in booking local restaurants and opera tickets for us given we did not speak nor know much about the local scene. Another highlight of our stay was obviously Piero’s famous walk when he took us out for almost 2 hours in the morning to show us what Florence is actually like from a local perspective - with stories, shops, lively market scenes, quiet street corners. We just cannot recommend it enough and look forward to being able to come back to Asso’s Place in our next Florence trip.
This place is wonderful. Piero and Rafaella are wonderful. It's unlikely you can find a nicer place in such a perfect location in Florence. Piero and Rafaella have put a lot of work and careful thought into the amenities and overall guest experience which guarantee you will get the most out of your trip to historic Florence. Some details:
- Historic location, clean, open, and warm (Piero will explain the history)
- Central to all the major sights in Florence (beautiful view of the Duomo from bed)
- Comfortable beds in both rooms, nice furniture throughout
- Fully equipped kitchen to cook the food you bought at one of the local markets
- Extra touches: electrical adapters, stereo with LP player and Bluetooth speaker
- Fresh flowers and Italian wine provided
Best of all, Piero and Rafaella make it a point to be available to you during your stay. Piero took us on walking tour that was invaluable, providing Florentine history, key points of interest, and great restaurant recommendations. Piero and Rafaella made our Florence visit unforgettable.
We had a wonderful 10 day stay at Asso's Place in April 2019. The apartment was spacious and clean, had great amenities and a perfect, central location in the historic center of Florence. All of the famous sites are within a short walk. We also cannot say enough about Piero's hospitality. He was extremely responsive leading up to our trip, gave great recommendations and was available during our stay if we had any questions or were looking for tips on where to go for an aperitivo, dinner or to see some sights. 100% recommend Asso's Place!
This was the absolute best rental experience I have ever had. Piero, is an amazing host and made us all feel like we were at home. The apartment is beautiful, clean, modern, and spacious. The location of the apartment is also fantastic. We highly recommend you say here during your next visit to Florence, you will not be disappointed!
Can you capture the essence of Florence? Asso’s place has captured the very essence of this historic city in its four walls: character, history, culture and hospitality that matches none. Waking up to majestic views of the Duomo, enjoying a hot cup of coffee on the balcony enjoying a stunning view of the Duomo and checking out Piero’s recommended breakfast, lunch and dinner spots - this was an unforgettable holiday made more special by staying at Asso’s Place.Raffaella’s knowledge of the city, her warm hospitality, Piero’s recommendations and collection of music - this was an unforgettable holiday, we’ll be back with more friends and family!
We travel extensively and Asso’s place has all the facilities of a 5 star luxury hotel but with a very personal touch.
If you are looking for an unique, local experience of Florence, don’t hesitate to book Asso’s Place. Raffaella and Piero you both are super hosts! Thank you for making our stay so special.
Namrata & family

My children and I loved staying st Piero’s Apartment what a wonderful host .

Defiantly would recommend to my friends to stay here So close to every thing

Piero’s place was the most gracious part of our Italy holiday. The photos don’t do it justice. The large spotless and beautiful rooms made us feel like we were in a magazine ad with spectacular views in an ideal location. He welcomed us and took us for a tour making us feel at home immediately. There is no doubt we will be back and center our trip on this gem. Many thanks Piero. We will definitely be back soon.
Piero is the best host we have had to date. We are a family of 4 on a two week vacation in Spain and Italy. His apartment is amazing. The views of the Duomo are absolutely stunning. He was responsive, attentive and willing to help us make the best of Florence in any way possible. He greated us with an amazing bottle of wine. He made great restaurant recommendations and also referred us to a couple spectacular wine bars, one of which we went back to several times. From the amazing views and the spotless apartment, to the restaurant recommendations and even helping us call a cab on our last day, Piero is what all Air BNB hosts should strive to be. Thank you Piero... We will be back.
Location of Piero's place is excellent. The views of the Duomo from the apartment will take your breath away! This apartment is very spacious and clean and you could not ask for a more gracious host. Both bedrooms have a king size bed...which is very unusual to find in Italy. It was very hot while we were there and the air conditioning worked well. This was by far our favorite place we stayed in Italy.
This was the first time we used airbnb so I was a bit nervous. I researched for 2 months for the perfect place to be with my partner and my 2 kids. We founded!
The place was eclectic, full of original art, and modern furniture. The beds were immaculately made with clean sheets, the kitchen opened to an Italian court yard and the living room and master the Duomo was smacked on the view!! Really? 🙂 To me a dream come true! I love Brunelleschi and the genius in his work and I wanted to share that with my family!
Florence is full of amazing art and people. I mean full! Italians live a happy and care free life, they don't judge, they live freely.
We rented bikes and went everywhere in minutes. We loved it! We ate amazing food (Piero gave us great recommendations).
Besides all that, Piero was really helpful and attentive to us. We had a great interaction. This would never happen if we stayed in a hotel room. We will never travel any different.
I recommend you get all your museum tickets in advance, always schedule a taxi back to airport (don't listen to companies that say otherwise) and have fun!
I recommend Piero's place 100 %!
