Cool, clean, and comfortable! Quiet, too, and a great base for exploring the city. If we return to Florence, we would definitely want to stay in this apartment! Thanks, Allesandro, for your warm hospitality! Loved the complimentary goodies and advice, too!
Amazing location, great apartment, terrific terrace!
Our host, Alessandro, was waiting for us and gave us a thorough explanation of everything and many suggestions—gracious and accommodating. Lovely apartment, nicely furnished with everything we needed and the Terrace was a bonus, although it was a bit warm during the week we were in Florence. Still cool enough for morning coffee and evening 🍷! So close to Duomo, literally steps away, but quiet on our side street. Highly recommend, and we stay in apts. all over the world. This ranks up there with some of the best! The Clovers
Nice apartment, literally 15 meters from the square and cathedral. Wife and I Stayed 5 nights and it was very convenient to all sights in the city. Within an easy 10 minute walk to everything you would want to visit. About 5 minute walk to bus pickup area, almost all the bus routes stop there. 10 minutes to the train station, marketplace and the river. Comfortable bed with plenty of closet space and separate air conditioning. Bathroom and shower are small compared to US, but quite adequate for the time spent. Had friend join us for 3 nights, used the sofa bed in living room. He was very impressed how comfortable it was. Nice dining area with small but very adequate full kitchen. The dish washer and washing machine were a bonus. Overall it was well worth the money.
Lovely, tranquil spot in the middle of Florence
Alessandro has a lovely spot and wants his guests to enjoy their stay. The pictures on the web show the lovely antiques and appointments, and the location is superb. The king sized bed and quality linens let you know your experience is important. The Building is on a busy street, but there is absolutely no street noise in this peaceful home. You will also enjoy the tranquil outdoor space offered by the secluded deck. We would highly recommend "The Terrace to the Cathedral" apartment for your stay in Florence.
Gracious owner. Great location
Alessandro is well organized and hospitable. The home is well kept up and has all the supplies necessary to feel at home
Your days here will never be enough
It is said that Italians make the best hosts. We have certainly found this to be true. But none are finer than one Allesandro Fornaciari of Florence, who is the personification of Italian hospitality and graciousness. In "Le Terrazza al Duomo" Alessandro has prepared the perfect little HIDE AWAY from which you can GO SEEK all of the treasures Florence has in store for you. This spacious apartment, which is literally steps away from Il Duomo, is lovingly appointed with charming antiques, fun art pieces and tall windows that draw ample Tuscan sunlight. And speaking of sunlight, drinks or reading on the sweet little terrace could easily become one of your favorite habits. Alessandro has thought of everything in equipping this delightful apartment so you don't have to think of anything. For those who are visiting Florence for the first time, you will be pleased to know that Alessandro will meet you at the apartment with an orientation to all things mechanical in the apartment and many things important about the town. He has excellent suggestions for nearby restaurants and how to get from hither to yon. Though it took me a day or two to become aware of it, one of the more luxurious amenities of this apartment is its quiet nature. Just outside the building's front door are the sounds of Florence - pedestrians talking, shouting, laughing; moterscooters, delivery trucks, sirens - but inside, blessed quiet. This apartment is PERFECT in every way. We loved our stay. We will return. Thank you Alessandro! Terry and David
'The Terrace to the Cathedral' is located in the historical center of Florence in Via de 'Servi that connects the Duomo to Piazza SS Annunziata. The Accademia museum, where you can admire Michelangelo's David, is around the corner and the Uffizi, Palazzo della Signoria and Ponte Vecchio are just a short walk along Via Calzaioli or via Tornabuoni, famous for their beautiful shops and shopping. The Church of Santa Maria Novella and Santa Croce district are in the area as well as the San Lorenzo Market, typical for handmade products, the Central Market and the Market of Sant'Ambrogio for those foods. Many typical restaurants and trendy restaurants are scattered everywhere, as well as famous ice cream shops or pubs with live music. 'The Terrace to the Cathedral', within walking distance from Central Station, offers a strategic location to enjoy Florence without the need of the machine and thus make your holiday unforgettable.
