A Perfect Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
This is an easy review to pen.

Luca and the Flora Apartment provided me with the perfect home away from home. Florence is not new to me, but this stay was a new adventure of sorts for me.

Being able to come home each day to this centrally located abode made me feeling like I was Florentine (at least for 10 days).

Luca was welcoming, went over every detail of the apartment - responding promptly where I could get my Pisa Leaning Tower tickets printed off my computer when I realized I had left the copies at home. :)

The apartment looks exactly like the photos - no photo shopping here - not needed.

And the copious amounts of stairs...if you plan to eat pasta twice daily and enjoy all that Tuscan cuisine and wine have to offer (as I did) you will be thankful for the daily work.

Luca - I will be back!

A presto!!!

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment exceeded our expectations. Not only is it centrally located being in the Piazza Duomo (with excellent views of the Duomo) but it was beautifully done and has everything to make your stay comfortable. We were very fortunate to have stayed in such a historical building. Luca was a great landlord and spoke very good English. He even went beyond as to help us with our luggage and find a taxi. Highly recommended!

Firenze Masterpiece

  • 5 of 5
This property exceeded all of our expectations. The description was accurate and we were blown away with how easy it was to see all of the amazing sites in Firenze from this centralized location.

Be prepared for a little workout each day as you take the stairs to and from the apartment but the view from the apartment to the Duomo makes it all worth it every night.

Luca, the owner, was beyond helpful and his personal touch in meeting you at the door to discuss with you the apartment left a great impression on our family.

If you are looking to be in the heart of one of the most historic cities in the world than this is the place for you.

Fantastic position, eye to detail.

  • 5 of 5
Luca is a great landlord. Position right next to, and looking out on to the Duomo. Easy to find. Luca has an eye to detail, and has appointed his apartment with careful thought to equip it with everything you'd need for a stay in Florence. Would absolutely recommend it for everyone who can handle the stairs! (But the view is worth it). Quiet. Having said that, he'd arranged someone to meet us with him to carry our bags up for us. V kind.

Wonderful Apartment

  • 4 of 5
The Flora Apartment is exceptional. Bright cheerful, lots of room. Great view of the Duomo.
Luca is awesome...nicest apartment we stayed in during our two weeks in Italy. Would have given it 5 stars had of it not been for the 80 plus stairs to climb to get to it. Would be difficult for 60 plus and young kids, but for us was worth it.

Spectacular location

  • 5 of 5
My husband (late 60s), my daughter (30) and I (early 60s) stayed at Luca's apartment in early May. Prior to our arrival, Luca provided us with specific and detailed information that helped ease our anxiety regarding our 2nd international VRBO adventure. He was extremely and quickly responsive to my rush of questions, and helped us find his location with ease. The building is very old and charming, with 82 (yes we counted) steps up to our apartment! We felt the history with each step, which was much easier for our daughter to handle multiple times a day, but manageable for us at least once per day. The unit is relatively small with two bedrooms having wonderful views (master has view of the Duomo and you can almost touch it), one bathroom, and a very small living space with cooking area (no windows but skylight with view of Bell Tower--I think!). It was comfortable and perfect location for walking through most of the ancient areas of Florence, including Boboli Gardens, which is well worth the walk. We also enjoyed the Hop on Hop off Bus! Luca was very helpful on our departure, dragging our luggage down the steps and helping us find a cab to the train station after our 4 night stay. We really felt we had made a friend in Florence!
