About Silvia Palagi

Hello everyone, my name is Silvia and I live in Viareggio, where I deal with tourism.

For professional reasons, therefore, I know the problems linked to hospitality.

So, together with my husband Guido, we decided to rent our apartments in Florence, providing them with all the comforts that we like to find in a house when we go on holiday and I can say that our guests are always been very satisfied. We look forward to welcoming you and we remain at your disposal for any information you might need!

Silvia Palagi purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Silvia Palagi chose Duomo

It is the home of our dreams! Quiet, bright, cozy and comfortable, in the heart of the city, where "things happen"; we have restored and decorated with love and we spend all the time available, consistent with my work - which for a few years - I will keep in Viareggio. When we are not there, we want our guests and friends to live our own magic ....

What makes this apartment unique

The light, the silence, the beautiful view, comfort, make our nest a special place in which to relax, study, receive friends; or simply re-energize after a day of visits to the many attractions of Florence!

Wonderful Wonderful Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at this apartment. You are literally a stones throw from the Duomo. In fact, as we were unpacking, the bells of the church started to ring. We ran out to the balcony and were able to capture a great little video of the Duomo at sunset with the bells ringing. A memory we will never lose. The apartment is beautifully designed with two very nice bedrooms. The kitchen is lovely although with everything to do and see in Florence we did not have a chance to try it. The apartment in centrally located easily within walking distance of all the major sites. In fact tours frequently stop in front of this building. Three days in Florence is not near enough time, given the choice I would have stayed a month. I will be back and hope to stay here again.

I have stayed here twice now. Each time the flat is clean and the perfect amount of space. The location makes moving through the city easy. We will be back hopefully very soon

Romantic Apartment in Heart of Florence

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has everything! Steps from the Duomo, a grocery store, restaurants and gelaterias, plus a fully stocked kitchen, washer dryer, all in a pristine house surrounded with art. From the balcony you see the Tuscan rooftops and hear the cathedral bells. 5 stars. Note for people with limited mobility, this apartment is a fourth floor walk up.

My daughter and I really enjoyed staying here on our recent trip to Florence. Amazing location, and everything about the place is so well done. The owners were super helpful, and we just loved everything about our stay.

An excellent apartment in the heart of Florence

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for the entire month of Nov 2017 and could not have been happier. The apartment is well appointed and you cannot beat the location. There are lots of stairs so be prepared but remember this is Europe and elevators are few and far between. We had visitors at various times and the apartment can handle four people comfortably. Thanks Silvia for a great stay.

We are in the heart of Roman Florence, along what was once the "decumanus maximus", corresponding to the current Corso, Via degli Speziali, Via Strozzi, a few steps from the Forum. Here - in the current Piazza Santa Elisabetta - there was a thermal bath building over which was built, later, the so called "Torre della Pagliazza". These baths probably occupied the current square till under to the very foundations of our house-tower, as can be inferred from the remains of a wall in "opus quadratum" that surfaces in the basement. Leave home and - from anywhere you turn - you will be immersed in the magic of Florence!
