Overview
Condo/Apartment -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Florence, Tuscany
The apartment 'Flora' is situated in Piazza del Duomo in the heart of Florence’s historical centre, on the 4th level ( no lift with 87 steps ) of a prestigious XVI century palace that once belonged to the Ghiberti family, one of Florence’s most important historical families, with easy steps well worth the journey. Assistance is provided to help with luggage upon arrival

From October 25 2009, Piazza del Duomo is a pedestrian area with all the advantages that an area like that can offer

Spending time in my apartment is to be accompanied by the shadow of the magnificent dome of Brunelleschi, the grandeur of Giotto’s belltower and the splendour of Vasari’s frescos, in an unforgettable dream that Florence will dream with you and bring you great joy and an even greater desire to return.
Flora directly faces the Duomo, giving you the...

Hard to know where to start. Maybe with answers to questions we may have had. Clean, modern, fully equipped, wonderful and funny and helpful host. Beds are very, very excellent. Forget TV...this is Italy. Perfect Wifi, if you must. I won't even comment on the location. Except to say there's none better in the city. The street below us a realist's Disneyland. Stroll at night in ultimate safety and listen to the city sounds. Ahhhhh, we're so happy to be coming back in a couple of weeks. Want to talk about the stairs? Sure....87 steps. Luca and friend meet you to carry the luggage up upon your arrival. If you are infermed or simply consider the steps dudgery? Don't do it. I'm old and fat and slowly walk the steps thinking about who has walked them before...lovely.

This flat is gorgeous. Literally you can lay in bed and the Duomo is in your window and skylight. The beds and linens are excellent. Fully stocked with everything you need. Ever wonder what is behind those 30 foot ancient doors?? Now you can not only know but stay there. The property has been in Luca's family for 200 years. Luca is very charming and helpful. The only down sides are 1. The noise outside on the weekend can be loud, but we enjoyed laying in bed listening to the street musicians and when we were ready to sleep we just shut the multiple pane windows and you could barely hear anything at all. 2. There are a total of 90 stairs to get to the flat. Did not bother us at all as the views were totally worth it, but if you have a bad hip or knee you it might not work for you. EVERYTHING is so close. The taxi stand is behind the Duomo literally steps from the door. We couldn't recommend more highly. The value for the dollar is fantastic.
