Florian Apartment

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful location with in walking distance to all classic Florentine venues. Quiet building with easy access to buses to anywhere. Many breakfast outlets and restaurants closeby. The Duomo bells are silent at night. Nightlife at outdoor cafe on next block goes until late, ear plugs a good option if light sleeper. Remember that ground is floor 1! So a 4th floor walk up is really the fifth floor. Stairs are easy, well lit. Worth the climb! Friendly and helpful owner who speaks English. We will stay here again.

Wonderful apartment in a perfect setting!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the Florian for 5 nights in mid May 2014. We loved everything about it! The location was perfect, right across from Santa Maria del Fiori (il Duomo) and within easy walking distance of all of Florence's beautiful sights. Luca was very welcoming and met us when we arrived and showed us all the details we needed to know about the apartment, including recommending nearby restaurants and grocery stores. HIs English is excellent and he indulged me when I wanted to practice my 30+ year old college Italian. The bells of the cathedral are silent at night, but one night some nearby entertainment was continuing past our bedtime so I used earplugs since I'm a light sleeper. The bed is super comfortable and we slept great every night, and we appreciated the washer and clothesline on the balcony since we traveled with carry-on luggage. The rainfall showerhead in the bathroom is luxurious. You will feel like a local staying here and we loved every minute---highly recommended! Mille grazie Luca!

The Best

We stayed in several apartments throughout Italy, and this was the best. Luca is an incredible host and is helpful in every way. The location couldn't have been better, and the apartment was extremely safe, clean and comfortable.

We could not have been happier with the Florian apartment. Luca was wonderful - helpful and gracious. The location of the apartment was fantastic. It was clean, comfortable, and perfectly located. The photographs capture the apartment quite well. We would love to return again sometime.

Outstanding apartment for a week in Florence

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented Luca's apartment for 8 nights in March. It was the perfect location, in the middle of the city, within walking distance to everything. The apartment was extremely clean and well stocked. There were grocery stores nearby and every convenience that you would need. We were able to cook our meals or bring in food each day which made the vacation very relaxing. Luca is a lovely host and he took the time to show us all of the appliances. True to his word, he had someone available to bring our luggage up to the apartment when we arrived. The only consideration is that if you are not very mobile, the stairs to the fourth floor may be tricky. For us, it provided another opportunity to wear off the great Italian food and wine. Luca was also helpful when we asked advice for places to visit and where to eat. If you need 2 bedrooms, we saw another apartment that Luca owns beside this one and it was very lovely as well. I highly recommend this apartment and we would definitely choose to stay here if we visit Florence again.

Perfect apartment and great host!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Luca’s apartment in July 2013. Upon entering the building (through huge solid wood doors), we had a feeling that we were in a medieval palazzo (it is a 700 year old building!). After climbing to the top floor, we entered an apartment that was obviously newly renovated and tastefully decorated with solid wood furniture, a fully equipped kitchen and beautiful bathroom. The air conditioning was a real treat in the heat of July! The bed was so comfortable. The entire apartment was immaculate and contained everything and anything we might need – from dish soap to umbrellas to tourist books. Even a washing machine. The view from the windows looking at the Duomo and the square below were amazing. The location was absolutely perfect. Luca was extremely charming and thorough in explaining everything we needed to know about the apartment. His advice on restaurants was always right! We loved our visit to Florence and meeting Luca and staying in his apartment made the whole experience even better. Thanks for a great trip, Luca!
