About The Experience

Frescoed ceilings in the enormous living room of this charming accommodation in Florence add a final authentic touch to this beautifully decorated apartment in Florence on Piazza Antinori, in the central Duomo district. Spend your days roaming one of the most characteristic and romantic cities in the world, dine like a king, and come home to rest in your quiet, well-decorated Florence holiday accommodation.

Location Description

This short term apartment in Florence is located in a palazzo on the elegant Piazza Antinori in the Duomo district. The palazzo dates back to the 14th Century, a time when the city was just beginning to expand beyond the Roman central nucleus. At that time, Via Tornabuoni and Piazza Antinori were side streets leading towards the Florence city limits. It was only in the mid-15th Century that the location around this apartment rental in Florence became the address for wealthy Florentines who bought and refurbished palaces to turn them into stately homes.

Nearby Attractions: The area around the Basilica di Santa Maria dei Fiore, commonly referred to as The “Duomo,” is considered the historic center of the city. From here it is possible to walk north to the San Lorenzo Church, the San Lorenzo outdoor market (where you can find all manner of clothing, shoes and bags,) as well as the not-to-be-missed Mercado Centrale, with its mouthwatering displays of food items. West and north is the train station and the Santa Maris Novella Church. While in this area, it is worthwhile to visit the Officina di Santa Maria Novella… the potpourri perfume will guide you. To the south are the Piazza della Signoria, the political center of Renaissance, the Uffizi Gallery, the Orsanmichele Church, the Casa di Dante, the Badia Fiorentina, and the Ponte Vecchio. Along the way are shops galore! One very interesting place is visit that is southwest of the Duomo, is the Palazzo Davanzati, a beautiful home with period furnishings, originally built in the 14th century. After years of renovation, it is finally open!

Exterior Description

It is made secure with a daytime doorman, armored door, and a bell and buzzer for each apartment. In the shops nearby one can find a baker, butcher, green grocer, coffee and pastry shops, hairdresser, dry cleaner, and a plethora of excellent restaurants.

Overall:
This is the second time we have rented the apartment - first time in the winter. Overall, it was an very good experience.
Enjoyed Most:
Its location.
Enjoyed Least:
The fact that no garbage service was provided - we had to haul our trash to the nearest dumpster which was three blocks away. Editor's Notes: The city of Florence has limited the dumpsters in the center, so there is nothing that the owner can do about this.
Surrounding Area:
Everything - great sites, restaurants, shopping, etc.
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring quick dry towels - you can wash the towels provided in the apartment, but with no dryer they take days to dry. Cippolla Rosa near the San Lorenzo market was our favorite restaurant in the city - children friendly, great service, outstanding food!
Directions:
Apartment is very easy to find, but if you drive to it you will be slapped with a 150 euro ticket which you will receive in the mail 6 months later. The property is in a limited travel zone so you need to park by the train station and either walk your things there or cab it. We decided to take the ticket because we had so much luggage it would have been impossible to transport it any other way.
Check In Out:
Staff at the office in the building is exceptionally helpful and pleasant.
