Duomo apartment description

The apartment 'Flora' is situated in Piazza del Duomo in the heart of Florence’s historical centre, on the 4th level 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 sensation that you could reach out and touch its magnificent green and white marble facade.

The apartment has been completely restored in Florentine style, but with all modern comforts. Flora is a charming and elegant apartment comprising: a living/dining room with a comfortable sofa, a modern and fully-equipped kitchenette, 1 bedroom with a double bed (140x200), 1 bedroom with 2 single beds ( 85x200) that can be transformed into a double bed. 1 modern bathroom with shower, complete the description of the apartment. The apartment also boasts a splendid skylight with electronic controls that offers you a bird’s eye view of the famous Brunelleschi dome.
All modern comforts are provided: air conditioning, LCD TV,Dvd, satellite TV, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave oven, safe, WiFi and cable internet dsl , telephone, security door and intercom.

FINAL CLEANING: Euros 50 upon arrival ( check-in ).

STAY TAX
The city of Florence has decided to extend the “Stay tax” (introduced in 2011) also to private rentals (on top of Hotels, B&B and so on..)
The tax is 2 EURO PER NIGHT/EACH GUEST for a max of 7 nights ( see my rental agreement for more info ).
