Getting around

Via del Corso is a pedestrian area, and the connection from the main train station "Santa Maria Novella "
​- Taxi service . costo 7,00 euro ( 5-7 minutes ).
- Walking : Take the left exit from the platforms, and turn right through Piazza dell'Unità , the straight in Via Panzani till you face the Duomo ( Cathedral). looking at the main entrance of the Duomo , turn right through via Calzaiuoli , and then 3rd left is Via del Corso. About 200 meters you find the number 12 blu on your left just before the Church of "Santa Maria De' Ricci ".
- the bus line 22 that stops behind the Duomo at the stop " Santa Maria Maggiore" .

Other Things to Note

the house is at the 4th floor with no Elevator !
smoking is allowed only on the external balcony.
- The pump of the water could be a bit noisy, since the water won't arrive to the 4th floor, it's important to have the pump even if it's a bit noisy , but if you leave the bedrooms doors closed you won't hear it.
- the apartment is so close to the Duomo so the bells will be ringing every morning at 7:00am and during the day. ( i think it's fair that you know this before you confirm the booking )

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • A fabulous stay in a fabulous city! The flat was the best I have stayed in thru airbnb. Felt very much like home....clean, comfortable pillows and a view that is beyond spectacular! Samuel was the most gracious host. Always available for questions and recommendations on where to eat, etc.
    I would recommend this apartment to anyone.....make sure you can handle the stairs. I am fairly out of shape and was able to do it!
    Thanks Samuel! We hope to be back!

  • Samuel was a terrific host; he was responsive in all communication, met us at the apartment much earlier than we were expected, and gave us recommendations and a discount at a great lunch spot nearby. The apartment is beautiful, with a spectacular view, just as promised. The air condition in the bedrooms was perfect. Great location, central to everything. Very nice experience.

  • Our time in Florence at Samuel's place was incredible. The view is everything that is advertised. The flat is beautiful and well-kept. The neighbourhood felt very safe and the security on the building was impressive. Breathtaking view of the Duomo, especially at night. Samuel was very helpful and had great recommendations. Thank you!

  • Samuel's flat was just as described. Perfect location, 10 min walk to everything we wanted to see in Florence. Very clean and very comfortable beds. Amazing view of the Duomo from both bedrooms, and very quiet at night. Samuel himself was very nice and very helpful. We would definitely stay here again!

  • The most amazing and romantic views from the two bedroom windows. It couldn't get much better really. Samuel was so helpful and always available to answer our questions in a timely manner. The apartment itself is in a super location in walking distance to all the main attractions yet also making you feel like you are almost one of the locals in their neighbourhood. Fresh bed and bathroom linen provided and the kitchen is large and equipped with all the essentials. Wifi also very good. Thanks Samuel. You certainly helped make our stay in Florence a positive and memorable one.

  • An incredible weekend in Florence! The view from the apartment was even better than we expected, and some of our best memories were relaxing on the balcony with a glass of wine and gazing at the duomo. Samuel was there to meet us when we arrived two hours before check-in, and was happy to store our bags while the flat was cleaned. We didn't need to contact him during our stay, but it was great to know he was just down the road if we needed anything. The apartment itself was ideal for us, bathroom and kitchen were spotlessly clean, and noise was minimal considering the location. Thanks Samuel, we will definitely be recommending this place to others!

  • Samuel's place in Florence was everything we expected. My wife and our two adult children loved staying here. It provided everything we wanted. The beautiful view from the bedrooms. Right in the center of everything, so easy access to everything. Plenty of space for 4 people. Samuel was responsive and emailed us right back. If you are prepared to walk up the stairs, then this is an ideal location.

  • Our family of four stayed here and loved it. The title "Huge Flat with Breathtaking View" is right on target. I've been to Florence five times, and this is the best accommodation I've had. The location is perfect, the apartment is spacious and clean, and Samuel is a fine host. Breathtaking also describes the flight of stairs to the fourth floor, but once you get there and take in the view of the Duomo from the two bedrooms, it's more than worth it. Besides, the exercise will help balance the gelati and pastries you will likely be consuming.

  • Top location and very nice host!!! The view was awesome and Samuel left a lot of maps and tourist information in the appartment. 1 step out of the house and we were in the center of Florenz. best location!!!!!!!
    Only thing that was negative was the water generator. Every time you use water (toilet/kitchen/bathroom) it was very noisy for a few minutes. We were 2 couples and in the morning the couple in the right room woke up due to the noise when somebody from the other room used the bathroom. Also noisy was the dome. The bells were so noisy that all of woke up (7am) people who get up early will probably love the sound of it.
    The bathroom itself was not clean. there were little red spiders on the floor, on the toilet paper and on the walls.
    Still we would recommend this appartment!!!
    Thanks for letting us stay there.we gad a great time

  • Great apartment. I cannot overstate how amazing the view is. It may be the best view of the Duomo in all of Florence. The little balcony is also a nice touch. Love this place. The only downside being so close to it is that the bell tower is very loud when its rung every hour!
