Platano apartment is shameless in the inside: there is a sense of generosity and volume throughout, of airy grandeur and rarefied kind of intimacy. The style is original: the owner, a painter, has given it a charm and beauty of a painting.

It's disposed on two levels: the first one, with two rooms, one double and one twin, dining, kitche and terrace, and the mezzanine part useful as studio. has a double sofa bed.
The elegant one double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom is spacious with a stylish wardrobe and a drawer. The second bedroom is with two single beds suitable for kids and has private bathroom with shower.

The kitchen is fully equipped with table and chairs for four people. A glass door divides the terrace provided with dining table. The living-room is big and spacious with warm atmosphere. A spiral staircase leads you to the mezzanine studio.

The apartment is located on the 4th and last floor of the building and there are 88 steps. No lift.

Great location. Spacious apartment with a terrace that's nice to spend time on. Very well organised and helpful for first timers visiting Florence. For someone who lived in Florence this apartment was chosen primarily based on location. It is fantastic and lively if that's what you're looking for. No elevator so problematic if you require one. Fans provided but no air conditioning which for hot months will be uncomfortable. I was overall very happy with my stay.

In the heart of the bustle of the city. Fantastic and the house is comfortable but unbearably hot without air-conditioning. Sadly I would not recommend going there in the hot summer months until this problem is sorted.

I cannot rate this flat highly enough, it is perfect! If you want to relax on a lovely rooftop terrace with a glass of wine and a view of the Duomo - you've come to the right place. Very spacious and beautiful, on top of this Diana was the perfect host. Great communication every step of the way - we hope to come back for another visit soon. Thank you!

Amazing location right in the centre of Florence by the Dome, spacious & tastefully decorated apartment. Host superbly helpful. Faultless!

This place is phenomenally located in the center of Florence, making it very easy to see the city. It also has amazing views of the Duomo. I found myself just staring out the window at it, amazed at how close it was. Meeting the host was easy, and they were very helpful in things to do in Florence and getting everything taken care of. They were also kind enough to provide us a bottle of wine to celebrate my parents' anniversary. The only things I would note for someone considering staying here are that it is on the top floor and there is no elevator, so pack light! Also, being in the city center it can be somewhat noisy at night. I had no trouble with this, but a light sleeper might want to pack some earplugs.

Beautiful, clean apartment with great views! Great location: 2 minute walk to the Duomo and lots of shops and restaurants. Apartment also has a washing machine and a drying rack on the balcony that was great! We are traveling for three weeks and were able to get our laundry done. Only small downside is that there is about 80 stairs to get the apartment, so if you have heavy suitcases, it will be a bit of a challenge ( but then you get great views!). Neighborhood is also somewhat loud and noisy even at late hours. I would still highly recommend this place.

The view from the balcony was great to enjoy morning coffee. Would recommend a stay at The duomo apartment as you are close to walk to all the wonderful sites of Florence.

HI, I'm Diana, a mom and an exuberant woman, as I consider myself: a manager of my life.
I'm a local guide and I run my company Acacia Firenze, as a travel assistant and offering tourist services. I started many years ago thanks to my experience as a traveler and after many years in Fashion business. I imagined a new way to offer hospitality in my city, opening first my own residence and giving the opportunity to discover a place from the perspective of the resident and of the locals who have their homes in the historical center.
In many years I have built a good connection either with the community of other travelers or the Florentines, all in order to exchange ideas and experience. From this ground grew Acacia Firenze - A perfect Holiday, now a well known travel consulting agency that offers also hospitality and "what to do" consulting.
A project now supported by a team of friends, all women, whose intention is to make all the visitors feel at home, even those arriving in this city for the first time.
