florence apt

[My accommodations in Florence were complimentary courtesy of GowithOh. As always, all opinions expressed in this post are entirely my own, and I’d recommend this apartment to anyone, even my own mother!]

Our GowithOh apartment in Florence, owned by the wonderful Carlotta, was one of the highlights of our entire trip to Italy.

The apartment was housed in a 1,000 year old building with a private entrance and was formerly used as storage for a bookstore.

However, in recent years, Carlotta cleared out and completely renovated the apartment, turning it in to an amazing 1 bedroom 1 bathroom apartment in the center of Florence.

The one floor apartment had a large living room/dining room off to the right hand side with two couches and plenty of room to spread out and relax.

In the center of apartment was the kitchen, which was small but had all the necessities you’d need to cook your own meals.

And to the left was the bedroom, with an incredibly comfortable bed and a spotless bathroom.


Overall, it was the perfect size for a couple, and all the small touches around the apartment, like the free bottle of wine and box of chocolates Carlotta left us, made the place feel extra special.



The only thing that might be better than the apartment itself was the location.

The apartment was located on a quiet, residential street that was literally 10 steps from Piazza della Signoria.

You could walk to EVERYTHING.

Both the Duomo and Santa Croce were less than 5 minutes away, as was my favorite sandwich shop (All’Antico Vinaio) and favorite gelateria (Gelateria dei Neri).

There really isn’t a better location.


Final Word(s)

The GowithOh apartment we stayed at in Florence comes with our highest recommendation.

The location was excellent, and the apartment itself was everything we look for in an accommodation:  comfortable, cute, unique, and affordable.

I’ll 100% be coming back and seeing Carlotta again!
