About the property

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

A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY

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.

THE LOCATION

"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.

THE VIEW IS AMAZING.....UNFORGETTABLE !!!

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 Homeaway.com 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 Florencetown.com, 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.

Great location in Florence

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Florence with another couple in this 2 (actually 3) bdrm apt. The "two separate apts in one," accommodations worked out great to give us time and space to be together, but also complete privacy if we needed it. The view is fantastic and the location was in the center of everything! Would highly recommend this for couples or large families.

Family visiting daughter studying abroad

  • 5 of 5

This was truly a great place to spend a week in Firenze! The apartment was even nicer than the pictures on the website. Perfect central location, beautiful views of the Duomo, the distant hillsides when the sun was rising, and watching and listening to the vibrant people, close to the train station. Our host Stefania was an excellent , a very responsive , hospitable person and good resource. I would highly recommmend this property.
