After searching and reading a lot of reviews, we opted for an apartment in a slightly less touristy neighborhood like Santa Crocejust 5 minutes from the Basilica of Santa Croce.

It was a very nice apartment apart from being in less noisy and more economical than those of the “pure center”. We booked it as usual through Booking.
