Overall:
Overall this is a fabulous apartment, well-appointed and within walking distance to most major sites and the train station.
Enjoyed Most:
With its own terrace, the penthouse apartment was uniquely romantic.
Enjoyed Least:
It was a surprise to us that the Santa Croce Piazza (the entire piazza) was transformed into an outdoor concert venue for a 20 night stand of Italy's favorite actor, Roberto Benigni. His performance of Dante went on every night for our entire stay. This would have been nice to know.
Surrounding Area:
Easy access to everything we wanted to see, eat or buy.
