This district Cosimo il Vecchio has left its mark. Within the walls of this area once the menagerie of the Medici family was staying. Today it is the student quarter, and during the semester, the Piazza San Marco is always populated by young people who are waiting for the start of their lectures and art classes. The Accademia di Belli Arti founded in 1563 is the oldest art academy in the world, dating back to Michelangelo.

The adjacent neighborhood to the San Lorenzo church is surrounded by a square, and a colorful market life reminds us that Florence was the city of merchants. Many of the offered products are real bargains, especially if you act like the locals with the sellers ...

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed here in July. The location was absolutely amazing! The rental was awesome, everything worked and was clean. The view off the balcony was great overlooking the square. Many eateries around this location so we never ate using the kitchen but it looked sufficiently stocked. Tiberio couldn't have been more gracious. Thank you again!!!

A calm bower above the city with quiet evenings and a stunning view of the Duomo.

  • 5 of 5

I'll be to the point: This place was quite spacious, well-equipped, and utterly convenient with inspiring 5th-floor views from the front balcony and the bedroom windows, which faced into a quiet back area and the Duomo glowing in the night about 1 block south. Perfectly situated for most major sites but also buses to Fiesoli and elsewhere. I'm guessing that the place if so inexpensive for what it offers because you have to walk up to the 5th floor, which didn't matter to us; one gets used to it quickly too. Meanwhile, having a grocery store with diverse alcohol, restaurants, and a pharmacy nearby really made it easy. One night, we had drinks on the deck with friends, and then dinner for 8 at the extendable dining-room table; I can't say how lovely it was to be able to stock one's fridge and cook meals. And Tiberio was extremely accommodating (as our flights got changed, etc.).

Great views and a central location

  • 5 of 5

We really loved the whole experience. Tiberio answered all of our calls and emails immediately and was very helpful meeting us and showing us the flat. The flat was spacious and well equipped. It's real selling point however are the views - from one side directly over the Duomo and from the other, of the hills beyond Florence. Absolutely delightful and such a central location. Thanks for all of your help Tiberio, we will definitely be back!

Definitely enchanting

  • 5 of 5

This cosy appartment towering over the city could not be praised too highly. Every room is well furnished and nicely arranged. The splendid view from the terrace upon San Marco and the north hills, as much as the glorious view from the main bedroom upon the Duomo, are worth walking up the five flights of stairs. The hosts are unquestionably exquisite. We would be definitely glad to come back another time.

Amazing Apartment in a Beautiful City

  • 5 of 5

First off Tiberio was an excellent host and very easy to work with prior to our arrival as well as when we were there. The apartment is in a great location and close to everything in Florence. It is a quick 10 minute walk to the Duomo and The David is right next door. This place was perfect for a family of four and was our central base while we did day trips to Pisa, Luca, Sienna and Cinque Terre. Tiberio also recommended we visit Fiesole which is a great hilltop town that is a quick 25 minute bus ride from the apartment. The five stories of stairs is not an issue and we felt very safe staying here.

I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay and would stay here again if we get the chance to come back to Florence. Thank you again Tiberio for your hospitality during our stay.
