Overview

San Giovanni-Duomo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Duomo panoramic apartment in the most central and safest location!

This super comfortable quiet apartment is in the elegant and vibrant Via Roma, a short street between the Baptistery and Piazza Repubblica, in front of fashion store Luisa Via Roma, next door to the Savoy Hotel and to boutiques like Gucci, Prada and Miu Miu and the historic caffe Gilli. One block away from the Duomo and the new Hard Rock Cafe.

At the same time very central and quiet, as the apartment is located on the backside of the building, where the only noise heard is the bell chime of Giotto's bell tower.

If you climb up Brunelleschi's Dome or Giotto's Bell tower, you can easily take pictures of the balcony and the windows of the apartment.

The apartment is on the 4th floor of a building erected by architect Giuseppe Rossi in 1892, with a concierge and a step-free elevator. Completely on one level.

Fully renovated with parquet floors, it is bright, spacious and well distributed. The master bedroom has a queen bed, a large cabinet and a balcony with a stunning view. The second bedroom has new twin beds, which can be made up to form a comfortable double bed, a chest of drawers and a large window with a view. The bathroom with window, situated between the bedrooms, has a huge shower with a new marble floor and a crystal cabin.

The spacious living room has a top quality Italian sofa for lounging, that opens to become a comfortable queen bed, besides a large armchair and a Sat Tv screen. The dining table opens up to seat up to six people.

The kitchen is compact and has a small window. It features top-of-the-line appliances including gas stove, dish washer and microwave oven, fridge and lots of cabinet. It is fully equipped with coffee machines, toaster, pots, pans, dishes and wine glasses.

All major churches and museums are nearby: the Baptistery and the Duomo are around the corner, Accademia with Michelangelo’s David is 5 minutes away, like Medici Chapels and Libraries and St. Mark’s church and museum. Looking to the river Arno, Palazzo Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery, Bargello, Santa Croce, Ponte Vecchio, Pitti Palace and Boboli Garden.

Train and bus stations are easy 10 minutes’ walking distance, for day-trips to Pisa, San Giminiano, Chianti, Siena, Cinque Terre or the sea.

Restaurants, shops, cafes, bakeries and wine shops abound in the neighbourhood. The enchanting food halls of the Mercato Central are just a few minutes away.

About The Owner

I grew up here and I'm now honoured to be able to offer the apartment we renovated for our family who live abroad, to those travellers who wish to discover the Florence of the real Florentines and the best tips of my hometown

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1968

Why The Owner chose San Giovanni-Duomo

My father bought the floor to be our family home, because he had fallen in love with the view, light and quiet of such an unbeatable practical location with all comforts of elevator and concierge. Our family still lives in this property and in case that gives you the benefit of a 24 hours assistance.

What makes this apartment unique

View from both bedrooms and balcony is simply breathtaking, especially at night! You can lie on the bed and enjoy the view!

Location ideal, safe central and prestigious, and at the same time very quiet to take a pause between morning and afternoon outings.

The Medical service of Florence is in the building. They accept all major, travel/medical insurance policies. http://www.medicalservice.firenze.it/

Guestbook comments from the owner

An excellent apartment in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I stayed in this very comfortable apartment for a week and would have been delighted to stay longer. The apartment was very clean and exactly as described. Even so, we were staggered by the view of the Duomo from the bedroom windows! Wonderfully positioned for sightseeing and welcoming to return to after a long day of walking. Most definitely on our list of preferred accomodation in Florence.

As good as it looks!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I as well as our 17 year old daughter came to Florence to visit our older daughter who is studying abroad in Florence. We have visited Italy and specifically Florence 4 times in the past 2 decades and this trip was the most relaxed and enjoyable of them all due in large part to the apartment we were fortunate enough to be able to occupy for this 1 week visit. The apartment is in a location that cannot be more ideal. It is on the 4th floor of a 5 story building and although you enter on one of the busiest and attractive streets in all of Florence there is almost no noise as the apartment faces inward to the center courtyard. Also, note that the apartment is in the pedestrian area so there is no auto noise or traffic. The view of the Duomo and the Bell tower from both bedrooms is simply breathtaking. The owner, Irene, will be a valuable resource as you navigate the city, with key recommendations for where to eat, who to tour with and any activities that interest you in Florence and the surrounding cities. She could not have been more available and sincerely helpful.

I can't imagine a more enjoyable way to explore this beautiful city unless of course you were lucky enough to own the apartment instead of simply pretending to be a native for the week or two that you visit Firenze!!

Perfect location!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Florence to visit our daughter who is studying abroad in Florence. We stayed in this beautiful apartment and could not have been happier! Irene was wonderfully welcoming and explained everything about the apartment to us upon arrival. The apartment was very clean and had the most amazing view of the Duomo out of the bedroom windows! The location was perfect for us, giving us easy access to most of the main sights, as well as many great restaurants and of course, amazing shopping. Irene gave us great suggestions for dining and was very helpful in many ways. I can highly recommend this property if you are visiting Florence and want a literally perfect location and comfortable accomodations. We would definitely stay here again the next time we come to Florence!

Perfect for our Needs

  • 5 of 5

We were three ladies from Canada that stayed in Florence for a week, then went on a self-guided walking tour in Tuscany for a week and back to Florence for a few days before going home. I looked at many rentals, but settled on this one. The owner, Irene, was helpful right from the start. She answered my many questions promptly by e-mail. I phoned her & had a very nice conversation with her. She also got me in contact with a gentleman from Chicago that I phoned. I was very nervous to send a bank transfer, but I took precautions and we were very pleased with the outcome. Our plane was delayed, but Irene graciously met us at the apartment & welcomed us. She showed us how everything worked and there were written instructions for those of us who needed reminders. Irene was very accommodating. She went out and bought a coffee maker as I had specifically asked if there was one. The kitchen is definitely small. We didn't care. We had our coffee and light breakfast there. We also had snacks and drinks there. One night we cooked pasta, but the rest of the time, we ate out. I mean...that's the best part of Italy, isn't it? Food and wine! The bathroom was wonderful. Wish I had all that marble tile at home. The air conditioning was a welcome relief. Sometimes, we just had the big windows open and there was nice fresh air coming in. I had read about mosquitos, but we didn't see any! The washing machine on the balcony was great for us. Especially after coming back from the one week walking tour! The beds were comfortable and it was nice to have a closet and drawers to put our clothes in. There was a problem with Wi Fi, but Irene's son sorted it out. The location could not have been any better. We walked everywhere. Some highlights were cooking school, Cinque Terre day trip, train trip to Venice, shopping, museums, and did I mention eating and drinking wine? I will always remember this trip with fondness. Irene and her apartment share a big part of this wonderful memory.

Perfect Florence experience

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is perfectly located in the heart of Florence in a beautiful and completely secure building. Irene was such a gracious and helpful host who went out of her way to make us feel welcome and completely at home in her lovely apartment. Her recommendations for places to eat were wonderful!

We stayed in Florence for six days with our two teenage children. Everything was readily available in the apartment with all the major sights either literally on the door-step or a pleasant short stroll away.

We would thoroughly recommend this apartment and can't thank Irene enough for her hospitality and kindness.

Wonderful Time in a Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We booked this Apartment back in May of 2012, and were so happy with everything! Irene (Ee-ren-eh!) was so hospitable and kind, and introduced us to a great selection of restaurants, and the apartment was extremely comfortable, tastefully decorated with beautiful vertical windows with streaming sunlight, and a great view of the Duomo! The location is amazing, right on Via Roma, steps from all the Firenze's main attractions. It was wonderful being able to walk to all the major galleries, markets, historical sites, and shops - and having the convenience of popping home for lunch or a nap, then heading back out. And at night, it was so nice to be able to take an evening stroll in a safe, bustling and charming area. We loved our stay - thank you so much Irene! We had a wonderful time and would definitely love to return, and highly recommend your place to everyone. Our sincere apologizes for this extremely delayed review!

Many thanks,

Ann and Jeff
