- About The Experience
For three couples or a large family, this apartment in the Duomo district of Florence is a smart choice. Three bedrooms and two living rooms offer plenty of space, but the real treat is the private, furnished terrace. Equally exciting is the apartment’s location near a large piazza which puts you within walking distance of many important sites.
- Location Description
With its incredible architecture, bridges, galleries, and museums, Florence is a gem in the heart of the Tuscan region. The Duomo section of the city is one of the oldest and most popular. This apartment is located just two minutes’ from Florence’s Piazza della Repubblica. Within walking distance is the Uffizi, Italy’s greatest art gallery; Piazza della Signoria and Palazzo Vecchio, with so many of the world’s most famous statues and frescoes; and the oldest surviving bridge in Florence, the Ponte Vecchio, with its panoramic views. Orsanmichele, the ancient church, is also within easy walking distance, as is the abbey church, Badia Fiorentina. A little bit farther out is the gothic church of Santa Croce. There are excellent shops nearby, where the famous fashion houses display their world-renowned wares. After shopping and sightseeing, treat yourself to a meal at the local trattorias and restaurants.
Nearby Attractions: The area around the Basilica di Santa Maria del 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 Mercato Centrale, with its mouthwatering displays of food items. West and north is the train station and the Santa Maria 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. One very interesting place to 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!
