Property description

The apartment 'Florian' is situated in Piazza del Duomo in the heart of Florence’s historical centre, on the 4th level ( no lift ) of a prestigious XVI century palace that once belonged to the Ghiberti family, one of Florence’s most important historical families, with easy steps well worth the journey. Assistance is provided to help with luggage upon arrival

From October 25 2009, Piazza del Duomo is a pedestrian area with all the advantages that an area like that can offer

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.
Florian directly faces the Duomo, giving you the sensation that you could reach out and touch its magnificent green and white marble facade. The apartment has been completely restored in Florentine style, but with all modern comforts.

Florian is a romantic and welcoming apartment comprising: a cosy living room with a comfortable sofa bed (120 by 195), a small and fully-equipped kitchen with a balcony that offers a charming view of Florence, a bedroom with two single beds (85 by 200) that can be transformed into a double bed. A small entrance hall with a splendid view of the Duomo and one modern bathroom with shower complete the description of the apartment.

All modern comforts are provided: air conditioning, LCD TV, satellite TV, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave oven, american coffee, WiFI internet dsl no cable, air conditioning, safe, security door and intercom.

FINAL CLEANING: Euros 50 upon arrival ( check-in ).

STAY TAX
The city of Florence has decided to extend the “Stay tax” (introduced in 2011) also to private rentals (on top of Hotels, B&B and so on..)
The tax is 2.50 EURO PER NIGHT/EACH GUEST for a max of 7 nights ( see my rental agreement for more info ).

If you need more bedrooms or have a larger group (max 7 people), please see my adjoining apartment at VRBO Property number 68449 / Homeaway 68449ha
