About Carla

I'm Tuscan and i adore every part of this region. I adore travel and i try to treat my guests like i would like to be treated. I hope to be able to make your holiday as pleasent as possible!

Why Carla chose Duomo

It's the ideal location to visit Florence: in the hearth of the city you can live like a typical florentine citizen and enjoying the best part of this wonderful city.

What makes this apartment unique

At the opposite side of the street where is located the apartment there is a supermarket open everyday from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm (21.00) also on Sunday. I suggest also to visit the Historical market of San Lorenzo at five minuts by walk from the apartment where you can buy every type of food from 7:00am to 2:00 pm (14) and eat or drink at the first floor from 10am to midnight everyday!

Loved Carla's Flat. Can't get closer to Florence Centro! Carla is the best.

  • 5 of 5

Carla met us at the train station and walked us to her place explaining some of the must-see's and some of the don't-bother's. We stayed at her place for six days. It was super clean and comfy bed. The market is steps away. On day 3 we rented a car from Avis-reserved ahead of time, (this is essential). We toured Chianti/Tuscany and returned to Carla's at night. There is basically no parking near Carla's so we parked in the garage next to Avis for a special Avis rate. It's a 15-minute walk to Carla's. There are literally hundreds of restaurants, most have a cover charge. Our favorite was Trattorio Tito. But thankfully we reserved at 15:00 for 19:30 because they were turning people away when we got there. A great stay. Mille Grazie, Carla.

Perfect location for Florence

  • 5 of 5

First off, Carla was great with her availability with meeting you upon arrival in Florence. Her flat is a short walk from the train station and literally in the heart of Florence half a block from Duomo. Carla gave great insight on where to go and when. I would/will absolutely reach out to Carla again for my next visit to Florence. Just amazing!

Great place to be

  • 5 of 5

Carla's apartment is right in the middle of this amazing and busy city. Everything you could want to see within Florence is pretty much a short walk away. Carla's apartment definitely has all the amenities as well and is very comfortable. I highly recommend it.

Great location and great host

  • 5 of 5

Carla is a wounderful host. She met us at the railway station. The appartment is perfectly located very near Duomo/Batisteri. Lots of shops, restaurant (a supermarked just in front of the appartment) but very calm since the windows are on courtyard (2e floor).

We did appreciate our stay and strongly recommend Carla's flat for a stay in Florence (we stayed 5 nights)

Thanks again Carla for your warm welcome !
