What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is located Within the Duomo district in Florence's historic city center. The Duomo area constitutes the very heart of Florence and the area takes its name from Brunelleschi's magnificent dome on the wonderful Santa Maria del Fiore cathedral. The Duomo neighborhood offers an array of beautiful historical buildings and superb piazzas including the Baptistery, the market of San Lorenzo, the Medici Chapels, the Piazza del Duomo and Piazza della Repubblica, famous for its attractive cafes, patisserie shops, live music, street performers and caricature artists. Furthermore, the area is surrounded by the city's main cultural attractions, Notably Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio, Ponte Vecchio, the Bargello Palace and Casa Buonarroti, the former home of Michelangelo, not to mention the Uffizi Gallery and the museum dedicated to the city's cathedral "Museo dell'Opera del Duomo."

Beautiful Place In a Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were lucky enough to stay in Alessandra's beautiful Florence apartment for three nights. We could not have asked for a better experience! First, it was exactly as it appeared in the photos and the description was very accurate. The apartment was elegant and tastefully decorated in true Florentine style. At the same time, it was very comfortable and functional for myself, my husband and our two children. The building itself makes you feel like you're stepping back in time--in a wonderful way! The location cannot be beat. It is situated between two lively piazzas and about a two-minute walk to the Duomo. Alessandra was a wonderful host--kind, welcoming, informative and responsive. We would love to stay here again on a future trip to Florence!

Charming & Beautiful apartment that’s well furnish and in a perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Alessandra’s newly upgraded apartment is perfect in every way with a local charm unique to Florence. The location couldn’t be better as the basilica is right around the corner as well all other attractions are within walking distance

At night given the location and atmosphere there is noise Travelers seeking total peace and quite will need to balance their priorities.

Owner's Response: Dear David, It has been a pleasure to host you and your beautiful family. Thank you for your comment about my apartment. Its central location, even if far from restaurants, sometimes doesn't prevent nighthawks from disturbing all inhabitants! I hope to see all of you next year!! Alessandra

The apartment is located in the heart of Florence, at really one step from the Duomo. The Santa Maria Novella train station is 10 minutes walking but, with luggages, it is better to take a taxi . The airport is 25 minutes by taxi or on request I can fix you a private driver. The centre of the town is limited to traffic: if you arrive by car you can park it in a garage at 5 minutes walking .

Florence is an amazing historic city with beautiful cafè bars as Roberto Cavalli cafè or Pawskowski or Gilli just around the corner where you can enjoy your italian cafe and brioche for many wonderful restaurants are just minutes walk. You can walk along Via Tornabuoni in the luxury gallery of fashion shops. Supermarkets and historic monuments are in easy walking distance....the Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, Accademia ..where you will find Michelangelo’s famous David..Piazza Signoria..Florence is just so full of treasures!! The neighbourhood of Santo Spirito offers artisans' workshops from goldsmith to antiques and the second sunday of each month there is a vintage picturesque market in front of the famous and beautiful Church of Brunelleschi.
