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 and my sister Gianna, we decided to rent our apartments in Florence and Viareggio, 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 Historic Center

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!

Florence at it's best

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts and apartment was amazing - I would recommend it to anyone traveling to Florence. The apartment is on the top floor so with no elevator a lot of stairs but with that said the view from the balcony is amazing. Very central with great restaurants, wine bars and all tourist attractions close by. The apartment has everything you need, and was perfect especially for a longer stay

Perfect location and so charming!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I just left Florence after a three day stay, and we cannot say enough about this place! Everything is brand new, appliances are all state of the art. Beautiful view of the Duomo and easy access to everywhere! The beds in both rooms were so comfortable and Silivia and Guido was so helpful! I would stay here over and over again! Oh and the steps are a lot, make sure your prepared! It’s a good workout!

Amazing apartment, great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, we absolutely loved this fantastic apartment and it's great location! Exceptionally clean and well appointed with everything we needed to feel at home. We were able to prepare meals easily when we did not feel like going out. We also enjoyed some great Brunello on our own terrace overlooking the beautiful dome of the Duomo. Silvia and Guido were perfect hosts and we would strongly recommend this rental. Thank you for making our Florence visit that much better!!

Perfect Apartment in the Shadow of the Duomo

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was as advertised and more. Exquisitely decorated, comfortable furnishings and outfitted with all the amenities we needed for our week long stay in Florence. The kitchen and bathroom are well equipped and clean. The bed comfortable. Good access to WIFI and the jewel-like balcony is the perfect spot for evening drinks while listening to the bells ring at the Duomo only meters away. Only caveat: There are 77 stairs to reach the front door and several more to the kitchen in the loft. Homeowner Guido kindly helped us with our luggage, but for those with mobility issues the stairs could be problematic. They won't stop us from returning next year however! Grazie Silvia e Guido for a wonderful place to stay in Firenze.

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!
