About the property

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms + 2 Bath, (Sleeps 6)


The building of the Cathedral of Florence began in 1296 by Arnolfo di Cambio and proceeded for more than two centuries long. In 1334 Giotto began the bell tower’s construction, 84 m. high.

The Cathedral’s Dome construction started in 1420 by Filippo Brunelleschi: the biggest stonework dome never done before in the world with a revolutionary building method and nowadays it continues to be a mystery for the academics.


"Giotto apartment" is situated in the historical center, inside a prestigious building in front of the gothic Cathedral of Florence and Giotto’s Bell Tower, with a romantic atmosphere and from its windows you can admire these worldwide best known monuments.


GIOTTO APARTMENT Hospitality for 6 people

The apartment has been recently renovated with high quality furnishings , situated on the fifth floor with elevator, in a quiet location with great security.

They are two apartments joined into one (see floor plan): the first one has two bedrooms with double beds, one bathroom with shower, living-room with sofa and an open-plan kitchen completely furnished, for four persons.

The second one has one bedroom with double bed, one bathroom with shower, living-room with a comfortable sofa bed and an open-plan kitchen completely furnished, for three persons.

Each living-room has a window exactly facing the cathedral and Giotto’s bell tower, a view that you won't ever appreciate anywhere else in Florence.

Both apartments come supplied with consumptions, linen, towels, A/Conditioning, heating, wireless internet connection, TV with digital terrestrial decoder, DVD player, iron, ironing board and safety deposit box.

Besides this they have cooking stove, microwave, fridge/freezer, moka, American coffee maker, kettle, cutlery, glasses and plates.

They are fully equipped and independent units, so it’s possible to have privacy or to share the spaces together as you like, and you can have lunch staying at the same table, the two apartments are about 100 square meters.

It’s an ideal accommodation for two families or for a group of friends.

Everything to let you have an unfergettable stay in Florence…

Lovely place, elevator was a must since it is located on the 5th floor. We couldn't have been happier

Fantastic Apartment and Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is fantastic - even better than the pictures indicate. It's clean, well maintained and in a superb location. We also were exceptionally well looked after by Stefania.

We loved staying here and will absolutely return on our next trip to Florence.

We had a very enjoyable time in this apartment which was very spacious, centrally located and very close to the Santa Marie train station from which we enjoyed many day trips from Florence to Pisa, Venice and Cinque Terre. High recommend this apartment for a most enjoyable stay in Florence.

The perfect Florentine vacation apartment(s)!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say, that the marvelous pictures don't already say for themselves? This apartment (Technically 2 separate apartments behind one very secure locked door, with two full kitchens, two sets of washer/dryers, two bathrooms, etc.) has the best view of any apartment I have ever stayed in! The Duomo/Bell Tower views will melt your heart each time you look out the windows! While the view was great, the apartments were awesome in their own rights. Two bedrooms with two big (and firm!) beds in one apt. and one bedroom with a big (and firm!) bed in the other apt. worked out perfectly for my wife, myself and our 21-year old son. They are recently remodeled apartments ideally located for sightseeing or shopping, and were a perfect oasis from the hot June sun. The small, quaint 2 person elevator was essential for a 5th floor apt., and in spite of it's tiny size, it served us well. We didn't use the cooktop or microwave, but they looked new and perfectly serviceable. The refrigerators did their jobs well! The AC's worked great and the apartments were quiet and comfortable. The owner was accommodating and even provided us with a gift for our stay. I could go on, but I think you get the idea...we loved these apartments! if we ever come back to Florence, we will reserve this apartment on again!

Fantastic Location and Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment for 5 nights, as part of a four city vacation in Italy. This was by far the nicest place we stayed. We were traveling with 2 other couples (6 total), and there was plenty of room. The views out the windows were the best, and we were close to walk to everything in the area. The air conditioning helped keep it very comfortable. We did a few tours with, and their meeting place was a 5 minute walk from the apartment, so very convenient. It is also about a 10-15 minute walk to the train station. It was very nice that it has an elevator in the building, as it is on the 5th floor, and after walking all over town, it was nice to have a ride up to the apartment.

Stefania met us when we arrived and showed us the apartment. She was great to work with from the time we booked, and was very prompt and helpful when emailing her with questions.

We would definitely recommend this apartment to others and would stay here again if we ever return to Florence.
