Recent Duomo reviews
The highlight of our trip!
"We recently had the pleasure of spending 6 nights at Achille, and completely agree with all the rave reviews. This was my first time renting directly from an owner and Emily's attention to detail even before we arrived left me with nothing to worry about. Emily had to be out of the country during our stay but her husband, Maurizio, was every bit the gracious host - even helping my husband navigate the markets to find a new pair of pants. There were 4 of us - my husband and I (late 50's), our 20 year-old daughter and my 54 yr-old brother, and the apartment suited us perfectly. It is large, impeccably designed, extremely clean, and well appointed with everything a traveler could want. It is even lovelier than what the photos and description show. I especially appreciated the "book" that listed emergency contact numbers, favorite restaurants and shops, and directions on how to operate the appliances. Small details such as indiscreet mosquito zappers allowed us to keep the windows open and enjoy the sounds of Florence. The apartment was so comfortable that we found ourselves adjusting our tourist schedule so that we could linger in the kitchen in the morning over a cup of espresso. I only wish my own kitchen was as well equipped as Achille.
The location is fantastic, just minutes from the heart of Florence, with superb restaurants and gelaterias nearby, and a grocery store about a block away. At the end of our trip that took us to Paris, Rome, Tuscany and Florence we went around the table and talked about what we most enjoyed. My brother said his favorite thing was our time at Achille because it allowed us to experience Florence as if we lived there rather than as tourists. I think that speaks highly of the how comfortable Achille is! We are all looking forward to returning someday - hopefully for a longer time!"

"My friend and I stayed here for a week and it was absolutely fantastic! Great location (very close to many trattorias and the Mercanto Centrale, which is a great spot for picking up fresh produce and having lunch). The place is very bright, very clean and nicely furnished (and well stocked). Spacious throughout. I especially loved the little meditation loft in my bedroom. Clemente is the perfect host - friendly and helpful and quick to respond to questions. I highly recommend this apartment."

"This property is simply amazing. The view is stunning. The apartment is beautifully decorated, very well maintained and very well appointed. The bed was very comfortable. It's amazingly quiet considering it is in a very busy area in Florence. Convenient to all the sights, restaurants, shopping. The manager, Paolo, is very good to deal with and very helpful. I was thankful for all the steps to get to the apartment. It helped burn off some calories!! Loved this apartment and would highly recommend it to friends and family. Would love to return for another stay."

"When we arrived, it was scorching hot, but the A/C made it all bearable. Luckily it cooled down a bit and we were able to eat breakfast and most dinners outside. The view of the dome and watching the swallows fly is magical. Very comfortable bed in a huge bedroom with lots of storage. Great bathroom and shower. Adequate kitchenette and better than adequate cookware. We managed to create some fantastic feasts with produce purchased at the nearby central market (which is amazing if you like food)."
