About The Experience

It's impossible to resist the charm of this Tuscany apartment in Florence's Duomo district, with a shaded outdoor terrace and interior walls painted with delicious trompe l'oeil. Not only is it comfortable and well-decorated, this holiday accommodation in Tuscany is about as centrally located as you can get. With a master bedroom and two twin rooms, spend a self-catering vacation in Tuscany with your family.

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!

Customer Reviews

Overall:
We have stayed in this apartment before and enjoyed the location.
Enjoyed Most:
The location.
Enjoyed Least:
The lack of garbage removal service. You have to discard your own garbage with no dumpster within 3 blocks of the building. We also lost hot water at least once a day, but by the time the maintenance person arrived, it came back.
Surrounding Area:
Everything is nearby - sites, shopping, restaurants, etc.
Tips or Restaurants:
If you're traveling in the colder weather, pack quick dry towels because there is no dryer and if you hang them out they will take days to dry. Cipolla Rossa near the San Lorenzo market is amazing - casual and delicious!

Overall:
Perfect - could not have been better.
Enjoyed Most:
The location and the spaciousness of the apartment. The AC worked brilliantly as well.
Enjoyed Least:
Can't think of anything.
Surrounding Area:
Everything was at our fingertips - beautiful location in the city. You won't find a 5-star hotel with a better location.
Tips or Restaurants:
Pack a small amount of laundry detergent, some garbage bags and a roll of paper towels for the kitchen. Supermarkets are located outside the city center so these items were key to have on hand our first few days there. Fresh fruit and breakfast items we purchased at the Mercato Centrale - a 5 min. walk from the apartment and a fabulous experience.
Check In Out:
Both were a breeze. Greeter was on time and friendly and explained all the appliances.

Overall:
In general, we all loved our stay.
Enjoyed Most:
The location and the size of the apartment. We all felt very comfortable even when there were 6 of us staying there.
Enjoyed Least:
The mosquitoes, and the amount we were charged for the utilities.
Surrounding Area:
Being able to walk everywhere and having excellent restaurants nearby.
Nearby Events or Locales:
I walked to Bellosguardo, but I don't imagine many visitors to Florence would wish to walk there! I had attended a college program at the Torre di Bellosguardo and so wanted to see what the hotel that took over the property was like.
Tips or Restaurants:
Take advantage of the anti-mosquito devices that are provided by the management.
