Recent Duomo reviews

  • Exceptional apartment in the heart of Florence.

    "This is a beautiful place, just as it appears in the photos. On the ground floor, it has the advantage as having no stairways to climb. That's right. No stairs. So it's a very short trip from the street to your room. This is a rarity in Florence. It is an outstanding apartment, gorgeously appointed with antiques, vaulted ceilings with natural light, and a very well equipped kitchen . Close to the street, there are occasional loud noises early in the morning when garage style steel doors are being opened, but it must be pointed out that the street is otherwise virtually silent, as it is a residential pedestrian walkway. Considering how close this place is to all the action in Florence (it is just steps away from the Medici Chapel, and the central marketplace), it is very private and quiet. There was a problem with the hot water when I arrived, but the owner resolved that for me. As seen in the photos, there is a spiral staircase to the upstairs bed. It is a bit precarious to take those stairs in the middle of the night, so I recommend leaving the bathroom light on at night, so you are not groping around in the dark. All in all, this was truly exceptional place which I would strongly recommend. When I return to Florence, I would definitely want to stay there again."

  • What you see is what you get...and more...

    "All the pictures and descriptions on the listing are accurate, except the furniture on the deck has been updated. The apartment was spacious, bright and clean. The fantastic views from every window trumped the sounds of the church bells from all directions. The elevator was a huge plus. The terrace was perfect for morning coffee and evening cocktails. We even cooked dinner one night. The best part of it was the location. It was convenient to everything. Linda was very easy to deal with. Each time I sent her an email with questions, she responded within a few hours. We made arrangements for Linda's son Marco to pick us up at the airport. He was waiting when we arrived, drove us straight to the apartment and showed us everything we needed for the stay. We also arranged for Marco to drive us to Carrara and Pisa for a day trip. We could not have seen and done as much as we did without him. He even surprised us with a couple of vista point stops to show us the breathtaking views on the region. Everything worked out great. Thanks Linda and Marco!!! I would highly recommend this apartment to everyone."

  • Another great stay with the Italy Perfect folks

    "This was our second trip to Florence as arranged by the Italy Perfect staff. As before we rented the Solare apartment thru Italy Perfect because of the location - quieter, without sacrificing access to local amenities. The apartment is very comfortable and well maintained. We enjoyed walking all over the city, including a trek from Fiesole back down into Florence. As before, everywhere we went we were welcomed. I am sure that our next trip to Florence will come sooner next time around."

  • Perfect apartment, perfect location!

    "This apartment exceeded our expectations in every way! The location is amazing, 2 minutes from the Duomo, close to every sight you'll want to visit. And even more amazing is how quiet this apartment is, despite being so close to major attractions! The apartment is very spacious for 2 people, with all the amenities you'll need. The bathroom is a good size with a big sink and a shower with a FABULOUS shower head. Great bed, and a very sizeable closet. Luca met us at the apartment on time, gave us a bunch of restaurant recommendations (we tried 2 of his recommeded restaurants and they were great!) and gave us a detailed tour of the apartment and how everything worked. The financial transaction was smooth from start to finish and we received our deposit the day we checked out. Staying in this apartment was definitely one of the highlights of our time in Florence!"
