A wonderful week in Florence Italy
Our wonderful visit to Florence, Italy, began when we entered Ponte Vecchio Suits apartments in an historic section in the heart of the city. Unlike a hotel room, once you enter the apartment, you virtually on your own. But fortunately, our apartment was rather large and comfortable. The ground floor consisted of a living room and a dining area with a closet opening into a kitchenette. The new air-conditioning unit was readily seen. There was a staircase leading up to the loft bedroom and bath. Upstairs had ample closet space and the bathroom was quite nice and to equipt with new fixtures. There was a surprise a washing machine available for our use. The decor was simple. The old brick walls gave this apartment a great deal of character. The apartment provided the basics, but unlike the hotel, when you run out of something, you have to supply it yourself. That would include soap, toilet paper and shampoo. There is no maid service to provide new linens and towels each day. All in all, the only draw back was the bed and pillows. The mattress appeared to be old and soft and the pillows, were incredibly lumpy. Spencer 60s in Florence actually enjoyed our stay at Ponte Vechio Suites.
