Spending time in my apartment is to be accompanied by the shadow of the magnificent dome of Brunelleschi, the grandeur of Giotto’s belltower and the splendour of Vasari’s frescos, in an unforgettable dream that Florence will dream with you and bring you great joy and an even greater desire to return.

My name is Luca and I was born in this magnificent palace in front of the Duomo and now with pleasure I propose my apartment for those who are attracted by the beauty of Florence and its history.
Luca purchased this Apartment in 1810
Why Luca chose San Giovanni
The entire top floor of the building belonged to my family for over 200 years and whether you're a newcomer to Florence or a regular visitor, I'm always on hand to give advice on everything you’ll need to get the most out of your stay.

Loved the location and listening to the music all day. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. Overall, everything was perfect!
What an amazing space to be right in the heart of Florence! Such a beautiful home with everything you need. It worked very well for our family of 4 and we LOVED the twin beds for our kids. Their bedroom window opened right to the Duomo! Luca was fantastic as well. Walked us through the apartment going over every detail, gave us an amazing restaurant recommendation and was so welcoming. Yes, there are a lot of stairs as some folks have mentioned but it’s worthbit and VERY quiet. Thank you Luca!!!
Amazing just like the pictures
We were in Florence for 5 nights and stayed at this amazing property. The views of the Duomo were breath taking. Our boys 7 & 8 loved having their bedroom look out onto the Duomo. It had everything our family of 4 needed. We were able to cook a simple meal in the kitchen, do Laundry if necessary and rest when we were not out enjoying the Beautiful Florence. The apartment is not a large space but what plenty for our family of 4. It is a 4th floor apartment with no lift/elevator so if you have problems with stairs this is not for you. Our boys loved climing it any time they could. We would absolutely stay at this property again if we are in Florence. Wonderful location for everything we were doing! Thank you so much to Luca for a great stay and help along the way.
Very nice condition and location
Super nice location! Modern condition. Luca is very easy to work with. We extended a day since it was so nice.
nice property, stunning view of the dome
it was like living in the Duomo. Only the number of stairs was a challenge, but it was worth
Location, location, location.
* This place is right in the middle of everything and about 12 minute walk to the train station and less that to Uffizi and to Accdemia.
* Felt very secure in the building (locks, access, etc).
* Two bedrooms are both reasonably sized and had windows.
* had pull down shades over the windows and electron shades over the skylights. If you are tired you can sleep till noon because your room will be pitch black.
* Luca was great to deal with us. Met us at the door and gave us a full walk through of everything we need to know and had someone there to help us with our luggage.
* It is four flights of stairs. Totally fine if your are in reasonable shape, but if you have issues with stairs may not be the place for you.
* Had a washer, but no dryer. Had to hang everything dry. There was an iron to get rid of the wrinkles.
Overall a great stay in a great location. Would highly recommend.
