About Ron Blitch
I am an architect in New Orleans Louisiana USA - educated in Rome and Florence, and have always dreamed of the perfect getaway in Italy. 'Belvedere Duomo' - meaning 'beautiful view of the Duomo' is just that place, with a very convenient, luxurious and quiet apartment with the appointments of Florence's finest hotels.
Ron Blitch purchased this apartment in 2009
Why Ron Blitch chose Historic Center
After searching for an apartment for over a year, I saw this completely renovated 12th century apartment with one of the greatest views in all of Italy - Brunelleschi's Cathedral, or the Duomo. The powerful presence of the Duomo from the upper living room and kitchen (unique around the entire Duomo) is breathtaking and hard to put into words. The Duomo becomes 'part' of your Florence experience, from a vantage point that only you can enjoy.
What makes this apartment unique
Located literally next to the Duomo, Belvedere Duomo is only a few minutes from the Uffizi, the Train Station, the Central Market and San Lorenzo (Medici Chapel), and the Galleria Accademia (David). The apartment is a 'new' property, completed restored and rebuilt after 2 years of intensive work, including wonderful appointments and conveniences only found in a luxury suite in a fine hotel.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We just thought we would drop you a line and thank you for such a wonderful place to stay. I travel the world (a lot for business, but also a lot for pleasure) and have to say this is one of the finest places we have stayed. My wife is a decorator and usually I hear what she would do different when we stay at rental homes. Not this time, she LOVES what you have done to the place.
Paolo has been wonderful. He introduced us to a new artist by the name of Elena Faccini and we bought some art from her. Not sure if you know of her but judging by the art we see here you might want to take a look. Up and coming artist we believe.
We also visited Gabriele Mossa whom we found through your information and art. WOW, wish he still did the masks you have in your place here. UNBELIEVABLE! We did purchase three items from him though, he is a wonderful talent and thanks for the information. I have included a photo with Gabriele and my wife with one of the items we purchased.
Again, thank you for creating such a wonderful place to stay. We look forward to staying here many more times in the future. We love Florence and we LOVE your place.
