Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

The apartment 'Florian' is situated in Piazza del Duomo in the heart of Florence’s historical centre, on the 4th level ( no lift ) of a prestigious XVI century palace that once belonged to the Ghiberti family, one of Florence’s most important historical families, with easy steps well worth the journey. Assistance is provided to help with luggage upon arrival

From October 25 2009, Piazza del Duomo is a pedestrian area with all the advantages that an area like that can offer

Spending time in my apartment is to be accompanied by the shadow of the magnificent dome of Brunelleschi, the grandeur of Giotto’s belltower and the splendour of Vasari’s frescos, in an unforgettable dream that Florence will dream with you and bring you great joy and an even greater desire to return.

Florian directly faces the Duomo, giving you the sensation that you could reach out and touch its magnificent green and white marble facade. The apartment has been completely restored in Florentine style, but with all modern comforts.

Florian is a romantic and welcoming apartment comprising: a cosy living room with a comfortable sofa bed (120 by 195), a small and fully-equipped kitchen with a balcony that offers a charming view of Florence, a bedroom with two single beds (85 by 200) that can be transformed into a double bed. A small entrance hall with a splendid view of the Duomo and one modern bathroom with shower complete the description of the apartment.

All modern comforts are provided: air conditioning, LCD TV, satellite TV, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave oven, american coffee, WiFI internet dsl no cable, air conditioning, safe, security door and intercom.

FINAL CLEANING: Euros 50 upon arrival ( check-in ).

STAY TAX

The city of Florence has decided to extend the “Stay tax” (introduced in 2011) also to private rentals (on top of Hotels, B&B and so on..)

The tax is 2.50 EURO PER NIGHT/EACH GUEST for a max of 7 nights ( see my rental agreement for more info ).

If you need more bedrooms or have a larger group (max 7 people), please see my adjoining apartment at VRBO Property number 68449 / Homeaway 68449ha

Florian Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location with in walking distance to all classic Florentine venues. Quiet building with easy access to buses to anywhere. Many breakfast outlets and restaurants closeby. The Duomo bells are silent at night. Nightlife at outdoor cafe on next block goes until late, ear plugs a good option if light sleeper. Remember that ground is floor 1! So a 4th floor walk up is really the fifth floor. Stairs are easy, well lit. Worth the climb! Friendly and helpful owner who speaks English. We will stay here again.

Stunning views and well appointed apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment. It was super comfortable and perfect for a romantic getaway. It has everything you need to enjoy your stay in Florence. Luca has created a luxurious retreat for his visitors - sometimes we just wanted to stay in and enjoy the apartment. We especially liked the sitting room where we could relax and plan our days.

One of the important touches were the special windows that blocked out almost all of the noise and the associated shutters that would put you in complete darkness. We had no problems sleeping in this busy part of town!

We walked everywhere from this apartment - it is so centrally located. And the Duomo makes a great landmark for when you are trying to return home from a busy day.

Luca gave us some great restaurant recommendations too!

I would recommend this apartment to anyone!
