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 Historic Center

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.

Great location - perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 just returned from Italy.

The apartment in Florence is as described.

Location couldn't be better. It is centrally located to all the possible places you'll want to visit when in the city.

The air condition was such a relief because we were there during a week when the temperatures were 90+ F temperature.

Niccolo and Giuseppe were very accommodative and so very helpful. I would be happy to stay there again.

Elegant with the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Niccolo's apartment is 50 m from the Piazza Duomo, up one flight and then an elevator 3 levels to the door. This means you are steps to the Duomo, 15 minutes walk to Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi, 15 minutes the other way to the Academia; a bit more to the central train station. It is clean, elegant, spacious for 4, and very comfortable. The kitchen is large and functional; there is a loft laundry room. You are at the heart of things but the thick walls of the classic building keep it quiet. This would work very well for a romantic couple or two couples, a small family of 4-5, or a businessman who wanted lots of room. Wifi works and there is a flat screen television. There are several good restaurants immediately below and along Via del Oriuolo. If you yearn for home The Grill has excellent hamburgers and fries; good Italian stuff too. Trattoria l' Oriuolo has very good food at reasonable prices; Trip Advisor and others gives it a well deserved high rating . The Florentine version of a supermarket, CONAD, is another 150 m from Trattoria l' Oriuolo down the street and you can buy most anything you want for eating in.

It's the nicest European VRBO I've ever seen, by far.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comment. I'm very happy you enjoyed your stay. Next time I recommend that you visit the new museum dell''Opera del Duomo, at 50 metres from the flat: it's marvellous! All the best Niccolò

Apartment in the heart of Florence. From the window seems to touch the dome by Brunelleschi. Ideal starting point for any tourist itinerary. You can easily walk to the unmissable sights of Florence, the Uffizi Gallery the Academy, with Michelangelo's David. From Santa Maria Novella to the Old Bridge. Inserted in the shopping streets, Via de 'Tornabuoni to Holy Cross.
