My name is Luca and I was born in this magnificent palace in front of the Duomo and now with pleasure I propose my apartment for those who are attracted by the beauty of Florence and its history.
Luca purchased this Apartment in 1810
Why Luca chose San Giovanni
The entire top floor of the building belonged to my family for over 200 years

Right in the heart of Florence.
We had the most wonderful stay in this Florence apartment. It is reasonably small but easily & comfortably accommodated is and our 15 year old son.
The location could not be better and to wake up and look out over the Duomo will leave lasting memories.
A word of warning - you must be prepared to walk up plenty of stairs during your stay here but that is well advised in the property description.
If you’re happy to walk up the stairs (it’s good preparation for climbing the dome!), you won’t beat this apartment.
The apartment was exactly as listed. Comfortable amenities, amazing location and Luca was great! Thank you so much for having us. We’d definitely stay here on our next trip to Florence!
Location, location, location!!
Luca was a wonderful host - we had a seamless check in. Luca arranged for a lovely man to carry up our bags as he discussed the apartment. The location of the apartment cannot be beat - you can walk to every attraction and the train station (10 minutes). The apartment was clean, bright and well equipped.
Thank you Luca for such a warm welcome and introduction to your beautiful city - we hope to see you again sooner than later. Cheers!
Honeymoon in Florence
We stayed at the property for three nights during our journey through Italy. The location was ideal and certainly more comfortable than the hotels we stayed at in other cities. Luca was great to work with throughout the process.
This apartment was amazing! Luca helped us with our luggage when we arrived and left. There were 84 steps and no elevator but the views from the apartment are well worth it! You really do feel like you can reach out and touch the duomo!
The apartment was super clean and the beds were memory foam I think - really comfortable! A nice, rainfall showerhead in the bathroom. There were 3 of us and we were comfortable in this apartment. At night we could open the windows and hear people outside playing the violin - so cool!
The major sites are all walking distance. The museum that houses the statue of David is maybe a 10 or 15 minute walk, as is the Ufizi, and of course, the duomo! The San Lorenzo leather market is a short walk away, too.
Luca recommended a really wonderful restaurant nearby. Forgetting the name now, but the chef came out and showed us the fresh produce before he cooked it for us - really delicious!
Would love to return someday.
Amazing view, perfect location
The Florian apartment has one of the most magestic views of any place I have ever stayed. You could not ask for a better location or a more gracious host. Luca made everything easy - from the meet time to arranging for assistance with our luggage to sharing thoughtful tips about the area. Top scores for the awesome noise blocking windows, a comfortable bed and great pillows. Not to mention the lovely serenade we’d hear every night in the early evening...simply perfect. We feel incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to stay here.
