Lovely apartment near the Duomo
Submitted: January 28, 2013

How lucky we were to find Casa Catarina—and the owner, Catarina, herself. Catarina and her son, Filippo, who is the English-speaker of the two, were so welcoming and helpful when we arrived in Florence. The apartment, which is in a building a few steps from the Piazza del Duomo, could not have been more conveniently located. It is spacious, comfortable and attractively decorated, located amid the hustle and bustle of this beautiful city. We were able to find everything we needed within a short walk, including a small grocery next door, a supermarket, as well as the wonderful large Mercato Sant’Ambrogio. There’s a small cafe on the corner that sells delicious panini and pastry. Shopping and cooking in our own kitchen gave us the feeling of really “living” in Italy. We could walk everywhere—one of the delights of Florence. It was a pleasure to return to our lovely Casa Catarina after our daily outings. We stayed for two weeks, and were very sad to leave. Maybe we can stay longer next time!! Thank you Catarina and Fillipo for making us feel “at home” in your home!
