This characteristic two bedroom apartment is located on the top floor (fourth) with an elevator of an old Florentine liberty style palazzo. It is located in the heart of Florence one half block from the Cathedral square. This is a no traffic street.

The space

The location is fantastic ! It is about a 10 minute walk from the train
station and smack in the middle of everything.
As a matter of fact, when you step out of the building you are in one
of the main thoroughfares and surrounded by about restaurants and stores.
Amazing thing is that when you are in the flat you cannot hear the street
noise at all .. it is only when you are down on
the ground floor about to step through the door that you hear the street

Guest access

The flat has the most spectacular view of the Cathedral Dome with its lovely rooftop terrace (unforgettable views). It is situated on two floors. The entry level houses the two bedrooms (one with two single beds and one with a double bed) and 2 bathroom with a shower stall.
On the next floor (reached by a small wooden stairway) there is the living/dining area and small (but functional) kitchen alcove. There is a lovely corner fireplace in the living area.
Up a few steps is the study area with a day bed (single) and its spectacular view of the Cathedral Dome. From the study you enter the terrace. The terrace has outdoor furniture and a big sun umbrella. The furnishings are comfortable and reflect the owners many travels to the far east.

Location, location, location. Close to every sight in Firenze. The rooftop terrace was an added bonus, we spent several nights there enjoying the view of the Duomo. Sandro and Angela were fantastic hosts. We appreciated the cold bottle of wine that was provided. Good restaurants and supermarket virtually next door.

Wonderful apartment with plenty of space and great location to easily walk to most of the important sites in Florence. My family of 5 had plenty of room and a very enjoyable stay. Besides the great location, there is a lift if needed to get to the third floor where the apartment is located. The terrace was amazing with awesome views, especially of the Duomo. We enjoyed morning breakfast and a few nights with wine on the terrace, it was a wonderful experience. I would not hesitate to recommend this place and I hope to come back again! Grazie Sandro and Angela!

Gracious hosts! Get the Florence pass as the location allows for maximum use since everything is within 10-20 minutes max walking distance around the corner from the Duomo. Spent breakfasts & some suppers on the rooftop patio as a result of the view of the Duomo and distant hills. Ate at restaurants as well as cooked for ourselves due to amenities.

Location, location, location. This flat is walking distance from the train station, and centrally located to all the best of Florence. It was perfect! We loved our stay here, and the family welcomed us as if we were relatives. I highly recommend this place. The only concern would be the long walk up to the sixth floor if you are traveling with someone with limited mobility. For us, it was nothing but quaint.

Air BnB should have higher ratings than 5 because this place will exceed your expectations with stunning view of the Duomo from the inviting rooftop terrace. The kitchen was very well equipped, beautiful artwork, lots of carefully placed lighting, beds very comfortable, easy travel with an elevator to the apartment and our host was very attentive. Exceptional.

Sandro and Angela were waiting for us at home at the agreed time. They were very kind and welcoming. Angela even left home and came back with a present for our daughter´s birthday. The place is exactly as it is described on Airbnb, and it is magnificent. It is incredible how little the street noise is annoying where the flat is (in the very middle of the historical center of Florence). The place was not among the cheapest offers, but it was well worth its price. Grazie Angela e Sandro, é stato un vero piacere!

Appartamento centralissimo, a due passi dal Duomo e a 10 minuti a piedi dalla stazione centrale, molto ben tenuto, pulito e rifornito di ogni cosa (microonde, lavastoviglie, lavatrice, phon, salviette, WiFi, ecc). È silenzioso, nonostante la centralità: non si sentono rumori/schamazzi. Il punto di forza dell'appartamento è la terrazza, con una meravigliosa vista sulle cupole di Santa Maria del Fiore e delle Cappelle Medicee. C'è un supermarket rifornito praticamente sotto casa e il mercato coperto a 3 minuti a piedi. La cucina è stretta ma dotata di tutto il necessario. Sandro, che abita al piano di sotto, ci ha accolti con cortesia e un buon caffè. Consigliatissimo per visitare la città: si raggiungono tutte le principali mete a meno di 10 minuti a piedi.
