FLORIAN

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager
This beautiful apartment is just as wonderful as it is described to be! My aunt and I stayed here for our first week of three in Italy and it was a perfect introduction to Florence! Directly across from/next to the Duomo, the view was fantastic, as was the very central location. Luca was friendly and VERY helpful both before and during our stay. He has an entire binder of very useful information (telephone numbers, tips, suggestions, etc.) prepared and housed in the apartment. The view is amazing! We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again! Grazie mille, Luca!

PERFECT FLORIAN

  • 5 of 5
A wonderfully situated apartment in a magical city. It takes no more than 10 minutes to walk to anything! Perfect for couples, the apartment is fitted out to a very high standard, with the best shower we've ever had abroad! Luca, the owner, is charming and extremely helpful. No problem at all in recommending his apartment to all my friends and family.

PERFECT HOST, PERFECT APARTMENT, PERFECT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone thinking of coming to Florence.
We had a wonderfully relaxing time walking everywhere, visiting museums and seeing the sites...and lots of limoncello!!! What a great city!! There is a great bus service (hold on tight) to get you where you want to go and plenty of tours.
The apartment is perfect in every way and Luca is the perfect host, kind and helpful.

Ringrazio Luca per la tua gentilezza, visiteremo nuovamente un giorno presto :)

WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 4 days in Florian and the apartment was very clean when we checked in. It looks even better than the picture shown above and it is very well located to all sites in Florence.
Luca, the owner, is very nice and welcoming and assisted us.
Luca, thank you very much and we will definitely visit you again in the future!

A VIEW TO FOREVER!

  • 5 of 5
On this trip to Europe, I decided to shy away from the hotel scene for the most part, particularly as I was staying for a longer time in each stop. Florence in the late summer beckoned, and the Florian apartment delivered!

The apartment is perfectly compact, wonderfully appointed and the view doesn't get any better! Add to this a perfect location ...

Luca looked after everything, from the initial notice of interest to the final 'Ciao' with great care and friendliness!

A terrific pied a terre for your Florence visit!

I will be back!

PERFECT APARTMENT FOR A LOVELY FLORENTINE BREAK

  • 5 of 5
No need to spend too much time to find the perfect location for a wonderful Florentine break. You will just love this flat.

The location is absolutely superb, and the flat which looks great on the pictures is just amazing.

It is located in the heart of the city, right on the Dome square, and is very close to all the major sights
The Ponte and Palazzio Vecchio are both 5 minutes walk. So are the Academia or the central market.

The wine shop located on the ground floor of the building sells some of the most prestigious Brunellos and Barollos.

Also, Luca, the very friendly and helpful landlord, is always very happy to share his little secrets.

This is a true value and I would highly recomend this apartment.

UN SOGNO!!

  • 5 of 5
La gentilezza e l'accoglienza del Sig Gradassi sono perfette. L'appartamento e' una bomboniera contornata da splendide viste da ogni finestra che lo rende unico! Pulito, caldo con tutti gli accessori forniti come il tostapane, lavastoviglie e un bagno comodo e nuovo.
Lenzuola e letto meravigliosi, come a casa propria ci si sente. La posizione a lato del Duomo fa di questo appartamento un'esperienza diversa da altre sistemazioni come se si facesse parte di un quadro. A chi legge consiglio di prenderlo perché anche se è al quarto piano senza ascensore vale la pena toccare quasi con un dito una delle meraviglie della nostra bella terra: il Duomo, spero di tornarci presto...in questo nido d'amore e di cultura!

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.
