The Duomo district is the heart of the city and Florence’s cathedral, better known as Santa Maria del Fiore, is one of the largest church in the world. Its construction lasted until 1436 but the originally planned Gothic front facade however was unrealized. The magnificent marble cladding that we see today was only added much later in a neo-Gothic style with colorful patterns. As a result the facade nicely complements the design of the cathedral’s fourteenth-century bell tower. Some statues that were created for the originally planned facade are now on display at the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo, a nearby museum dedicated to works of art from the cathedral. The dome of the Duomo was the world’s largest when it was completed in 1436 and still towers over the city. Brunelleschi managed to create the enormous dome without supports thanks to an ingenious design which consisted of an inner shell made of bricks with a herringbone pattern and a horizontal stone chain, which reduced stress and allowed the weight to be evenly distributed. Walking south from Piazza del Duomo, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, one of the city’s main thoroughfares, you will find Piazza della Repubblica, today theatre to street artists and shows, particularly after sunset. The square is home to the historical Caffé Gilli, Caffé Paskowski and Caffé delle Giubbe Rosse, which were meeting points for many artists and writers in the past, while today is the heart of the city’s fashion district.
Florence city centre is a ZTL zone which stands for “limited traffic zone” and therefore special rules apply to when you can enter this area. This particular apartment is in fact located within the ZTL zone so this means that if you are thinking of coming to Florence by car and wish to drive around and park, then you will need to pay special attention to the road signs, CCTV cameras and access cameras (they will show either a red /green light) in order to avoid receiving fines. Guests who need to travel within the ZTL zone by car to reach their apartment are advised to contact one of the private garages in the centre (the one nearest the apartment you are staying in) and obtain a temporary access permit. Upon arrival at the garage, guests must specify their need for access in the ZTL and the garage will then note the vehicle’s number plate and forward it to the appropriate police headquarters.
Walking distance to all the major attractions of the historic center.
The train station (Santa Maria Novella) is walking distance, all the buses stop just in the closest streets. But the best way to visit Florence is walking around. Florence is a small town and I highly suggest not to come by car. Parking is expensive.

Cash grab with zero care for the guest
Only redeeming factor was the view. Owner uses a company named sweet stay who makes you pay on a separate platform and then cancels your booking so they don’t have to pay a booking.com commission fee. Nothing in the listing photos reflected the current state of the unit. Even the art was taken off the walls. Who does that! Part of the reason we booked this place is because they had toys, art supplies like an easel and kids books. All those things were missing and when we asked for chalk they said that’s not in the amenities included. The bathroom stunk of such putrid sewage that we couldn’t wash our children in the moldy showers for 3 days! We would wait to use the restroom at the public market it was so foul. If you opened the door for a second the entire apartment would stink. When we arrived the place was filthy: the table was greasy from the previous guests, dirty pillow cases and a floor that hadnt been swept or mopped to name the first things we noticed. After a short period of time you noticed that everything was slightly broken, scuffed up or missing (like the bulb in the beside lamp). There was no dish soap so I imagine all the dishes were washed with water which is incredibly foul during these covid 19 times. No hand soap in the kitchen or the bathroom. When we requested these basic items they said they were going to send a cleaner which happened to be during the kids wind down time. We set a time with Sweetstay for the cleaner to come the next day. We stepped out shortly to pick up food and noticed someone had come in and left these things in the kitchen. Made us feel very uncomfortable. When we asked for our last day to be cancelled they just ignored us. Should be banned from booking.com until the owner and company get their act together. They blamed the cancelled booking on booking.com which is so shady. 0/10December 2022

This apartment is right in the heart of Florence—the best city to visit! We had a great time eating, shopping, drinking, walking, sightseeing, and learning. The apartment is simple and offers a good home base for all the city has to offer. If the hustle and bustle of a city is too loud for sleeping, just use a white noise app on your phone at night!April 2022

Excellent location, bizar that next to the dome you can rent an apartment. It’s a relaxed place in this time of the year. Perhaps the place needs a bit more cosines in living room and the double bedroom but overall greatJanuary 2022
- Carl P.
Amazing location and price. Very responsive to my emails and check in and check out is very easy.January 2022
- Naomi M.
It is difficult to explain the beauty of this apartment and its location. Views: right in front of the dome with astonishing views of the battistero Location: in front of the dome, a supermarket round the corner. You can walk to to everywhere including Pitti Palace in less than 5 minutes. Plenty of really good restaurants around. Host: great, helpful, sober. No reviews can explain this place. We were a family of 4 and difficult to please to be honest. This was an experience in a lifetime. For those in other reviews who complained about the noise, it's a non sense, obviously it's very lively area, but 100% worth it. It doesn't happen everyday to live in front of a masterpiece of architecture!January 2022

Più centro di così
Posizione ottima anche se un po' rumorosa la mattina ma non si può pretendere se si vuole stare nel centro di una città. Vista favolosa sulla piazza, Battistero e Duomo. I locali sono ampi e c'è tutto ciò che si ha bisogno per un soggiorno breve. Noi ci siamo stati solo 3 giorni ma anche per una settimana è ottimo. Una camera non ha finestre, è molto ampia e dispone di una piccola apertura in alto che credo dia su una corte interna. Il bagno è piccolo ma funzionale.November 2021
