About the property

Spacious and bright apartment, ideal for living Florence from the inside.

Apartment on the second and last floor of a beautiful Florentine palace. A privileged view of the Brunelleschi dome, which seems to be able to touch. Wooden ceiling beams make the cozy atmosphere. Ideal starting point for those who want to discover the city of Florence. From the Duomo Square you can easily reach the main points of interest of the city, starting with the baptistery and the new Oblate library. Of the four historic neighborhoods that face each year in the Florentine football tournament, we belong to the Greens of St. John.

Why Niccolò chose Sant' Ambrogio

It was the house of my family. But it is also the best place to experience the city of Florence from the inside. I'm sure my guests will enjoy their stay.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location - the Duomo is right next door. Close to most of the museums. Uffizzi is a short walk. Great restaurants near by and grocery across the street. We loved every minute of our stay. Giuseppe was very helpful in getting transportation arranged for us for our early morning departure. The apartment is perfect for a family of 4 or more. We loved having the 2 bathrooms and use of a washing machine.

in the heart of Firenze

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful apartment in the heart of the city, would highly recommend this apartment to anyone. Firenze is a very walkable city but to know if you ever get lost or take a wrong turn just look for the Duomo and you are home, just a half block away!

The Perfect Florence/Tuscan Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our (my wife and I ) objective was to find a nice apartment where we could walks to everything. We wanted it to be big enough so that our daughter and her 2 university friends could join us for the weekend.

We also wanted it to be well enough equipped that we could shop at local markets and cook some meals--pretend we were locals.

We like private bathrooms, comfortable beds and nice surroundings. This place is every bit as nice as indicated on the web site--if not more so. It is on the top floor and do admit to using the elevator after long days of traipsing around Florence. Yes could and did walk everywhere The local Spar market across the street had just about everything and we got to know the shop keeper. The Queens restaurant at number 43 (2 doors down) was our local eatery where we did have 2 meals. Great little spot. Niccolo and his father Giuseppe were perfect hosts. We did appreciate the laundry facility up the spiral stair case. We were thus able to travel lightly.

Awesome stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is awesome, lots of space, comfortable beds, located close to almost everything. Highly recommend. Sometimes noisy in the upstairs bedroom due to street noise, but would stay again anytime. Giuseppe and family are very friendly and welcoming.

Great lodging!

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this quaint, centrally located apartment. The laundry machine was a huge help in allowing us to pack minimally and still have plenty of room in our suitcases for souvenirs and gifts on the return trip.

There were so many plusses to renting this apartment for two weeks. We used it as a base from which to make side trips as desired. If there was a minus it would have been the plumbing. The water drained very slowly in both bathrooms. Other than that, it was a very spacious, comfortable flat for the 4 of us.
