Beautiful apartment near Duomo

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is absolutely wonderful! Greatest location a couple blocks from the Duomo; we walked everywhere. Roomy, clean and well stocked with everything we needed. Angela gave us a warm welcome, and provided maps, guide books and tips about good sites and restaurants. Bring ear plugs for street noise.

Thanks again, Angela

Central location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is right in the center of Florence, making it easy to walk around and explore the city. Angela and Marco were fabulous hosts, explaining everything you need to know about the unit and available to help with suggestions for sightseeing. The apartment is so close to the Duomo, so be prepared and bring earplugs if you don't want to wake to the ringing of the bell chimes in the morning! Would stay here again. Thank you, Angela and Marco!

Perfect central location.

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is located at the exact center of the city within the walking distance to all the attractions.

Should be ready for the extra noise which is common for the center of the city like Florence.

That is what you get to be in the center of it ALL.

Fantastic location, Great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We chose this apartment because of the positive reviews and its location - it is literally 3 blocks from the Duomo, right in the heart of Florence. Angela and her husband (Marco, maybe?) were very gracious hosts, taking some time to chat with us about Italian vs. US life, and making sure we understood everything in the apartment. She had maps to help us get around Florence and was good to work with leading up to our stay - very prompt about answering emails, etc.

Car: not necessary

The apartment is 15 minutes by taxi or by bus from the A. Vespucci airport, while for who lands at G.Galilei airport there are many coaches to Florence centre, otherwise the train which lives from Pisa airport and arrives directly to SM.Novella station is a good and comfortable choice.

For who arrives by car: since the apartment is in the Limited Trafic Area accessile to residents only, the car has to be parked in one of the numerous centre garages or in the Parterre Parking (18€ per 24h): this parking is 4 bus stops from the Dome (Buses number 1, 7, 17) or 15 minutes by foot from the apartment.

I recommend you to book on-line your visit at Uffizi Gallery if you decide to live this amazing experience among the most famous painting in the world.

In the apartment you’ll find a monthly guide with every events in Florence and in the nearby districts, the guide to Florence restaurants, pubs, discos, every usefull telephone numbers in order to make easy your holiday in the “cradle of the Renaissance”.
