Historic Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Self-catering apartments in Dome Square in the Florence’ historical centre

Flora and Florian apartments are situated in Piazza del Duomo in the heart of Florence’s historical centre, on the 4th level of a prestigious XVI century palace that once belonged to the Ghiberti family, one of Florence most important historical families, with easy steps well worth the journey. Assistance is provided to help with luggage upon arrival

Spending time in my apartments is to be accompanied by the shadow of the magnificent dome of Brunelleschi, the grandeur of Giotto’s bell tower and the splendour of Vasari’s fresco's, in an unforgettable dream that Florence will dream with you and bring you great joy and an even greater desire to return.

Both the apartments directly face the Duomo, giving you the sensation that you could reach out and touch its magnificent green and white marble façade.The apartments have been completely restored in Florentine style, but with all modern comforts. From October 25 2009, Piazza del Duomo is a pedestrian area.

Absolutely everything about this apartment was perfect. The location, the view, the amenities, the cleanliness, and of course, the owner - Luca. He was extremely gracious and flexible with us. Made great recommendations as to places to eat. The view was spectacular - very jealous folks back home. The location is perfect. Everything is close and in walking distance. Highly, highly would recommend. :)
Owner's Response: Hi Mike, thanks for your terrific review. I wish you a wonderful 2013.

WOW WHAT CAN I SAY. PERFECT APARTMENT, PERFECT LOCATION, JUST ONE GREAT PLACE TO STAY. THE OWNER LUCA WE SO VERY HELPFUL. LOTS OF STAIRS BUT HE HELPED US WITH OUR LUGGAGE AND WE GOT GOOD EXERCISE THERE. EXTREMELY SAFE IN APARTMENT AND FLORENCE AS WELL...FLORENCE IS A GREAT CITY TO VISIT--- OUR FAVORITE SITE WAS THE PONTE VECCHIO BRIDGE, IT IS SPECTACULAR. I RECOMMEND TAKING A DAY TRIP TO AREZZO OR ANOTHER NEAR BY CITY. IT WAS VERY THERE ARE MANY CITES ONE CAN EASILY WALK TO BUS STATION AND GO FOR THE DAY. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND STAYING HERE. IT IS BETTER THAN THE PICTURES SHOW AND BOTH BEDROOMS ARE LARGE ESPECIALLY BY EUROPEAN STANDARDS. BATHROOM AND APARTMENT ALL JUST REMODELED. LOVED OUR STAY.

Beautiful stay at the Flora

  • Submitted: Sep 16, 2012
  • Stayed: Apr 2001
We very much enjoyed staying in your apartment and I am sorry not to have seen you to thank you just before we left. Having waited a lifetime to visit Florence, it was thrilling to be there and to look out at the Duomo just across from your apartment. It was particularly magical at night when the Piazza empties and all you have is the amazing floodlit Duomo. Thank you for being so reliable and helpful - it made the visit very easy and organised. What a fantastic city Florence is! We also loved our day out in the countryside visiting Siena, St Gimignano and Monteruggiero. So nice to have met you, Luca, and thank you for sharing your family apartment with us. Best wishes,

Grazie!

  • Stayed: May 2011
Our stay in Florence was unforgettable because of the time we spent in the Flora apartment. The location is fantastic, and accessible to everything necessary for a memorable stay. From the well-appointed apartment you can almost touch the famous Duomo. There are cafes, shops, and supermarket directly nearby. Because of the prime location, in the city center, it is only blocks to all the popular city sites. Luca, thank you so much for seeing to every detail. My only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer!! We can't wait to return again someday very soon!! Grazie mille! Warmest regards,

Florence, the cradle of the renaissance, boasts an artistic patrimony that has made it one of the most celebrated and fascinating cities in the world: the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore (with the bell tower designed by Giotto and the dome by Brunelleschi); the baptistery of San Giovanni; the gothic churches of Santa Maria Novella, Santa Trinita and Santa Croce (with its frescos by Giotto, ‘l’Annunciazione’ by Donatello, the tombs of some of Italy’s greatest names and the chapel of the Pazzi family); the palazzo della Signoria or Palazzo Vecchio; the Bargello. From the renaissance period: the church of San Lorenzo which contains the tombs of the Medici family and of Michelangelo; and Palazzo Pitti which was commenced by Brunelleschi.

The museums include: the Uffizi; the Galleria dell’Accademia which houses the statue of David by Michelangelo; the Galleria Palatina; the Museo Nazionale and the Museo Archeologico. All these monuments and museums are few steps from the apartments.
