Why Francesca Burlamacchi chose Porta al Prato
We chose this property for its quiet yet central location and because it spoke to us. It needed a lot of work but it had good bones, a vaulted ceiling, a fireplace, big windows, large rooms and a pretty and well positioned terrace. I knew it was right instantly as there was a magnificent wisteria in full bloom growing up from the garden below when we viewed the flat.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment offers space, light, elegant proportions and the chance to sit outside most of the year drinking,eating and relaxing with friends.

At Home in Florence
This was a beautiful and comfortable place to stay while in Florence. It was convenient to some great restaurants and the train station - all within a 15 minute walk. Our group of 6 really enjoyed this home away from home location with plenty of room for everyone, a great kitchen to cook an Italian meal with products from the market, and a wonderful family room to gather in and share our experiences of the day. Also, Kate was great to work with and made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. I would definitely recommend this place and hope to visit again some day.
Excellent place to stay in Florence
My family of five stayed here last week. It is an absolutely charming apartment, with all the amenities of home (AC, hairdryers, WiFi, washer/dryer). It is located in a lovely neighborhood just outside the hugely crowded and touristy areas of Florence. Everything is within a 10-15 minute walk though. The owner and property manager were easy and pleasant to work with. My only word of warning is that one of the bedrooms has no AC, although it has a fan and gets cooled pretty well from the main room and the third bedroom has a queen bed and a single. The single bed is rock hard and not really something you want to sleep on. Other than that, we loved it. Would definitely stay there again
Great location, beautiful family friendly apartment!!
Kate was wonderful to set us up with all the information we needed. The house is fully equipped with everything you need. We kept discovering more and more as we stayed. We would definitely stay again.
Very comfortable apartment. Very roomy with excellent access to the center of Florence.
Would stay there again.
THE APARTMENT IS AN A PARTICULARLY CONVENIENT LOCATION CLOSE TO ALL THE MAIN ATTRACTIONS AND IN THE VERY HEART OF FLORENCE. IT IS CLOSE TO BORGO OGNISSANTI IN AN AREA OF ELEGANT BUILDINGS FROM THE 17 AND 18 HUNDREDS. IT IS CLOSE TO THE VESPUCCI BRIDGE, AND PONTE VECCHIO IS A SHORT WALK ALONG THE RIVER, THE DUOMO IS ABOUT 20 MINS AWAY ON FOOT. THERE ARE MANY SHOPS AND RESTAURANTS IN THE AREA, MANY ONLY A FIVE MINUTE WALK AWAY. I PARTICULARLY LIKE THE TRATTORIA ARMADO IN BORGO OGNISSANTI AND A TRIP TO THE OFFICINA PROFUMO SANTA MARIA NOVELLA IN NEARBY VIA DELLA SCALA. SEE MY REVIEWS.
Please note Florence is in Tuscany not Lombardia as written on this site by home away.
Additional pricing information
There is a local Florence tourist tax of Euro 2.50 per person over 12 per night up to a max of 7 nights. Kate will collect this tax at check in with your police registration details.
