Domenico

Modern and spacious 2 bedroom apartment

Stay in Florence

This is a beautifully restored, very spacious (1100 sq. ft) vacation rental apartment in the heart of Florence. The elevator takes you to the second floor air conditioned apartment which opens into a hallway with a small windowed office with internet connection (no computer) on the left. The parquet floor continues into the open living room, dining room area with comfortable contemporary furniture and dining table and chairs. The attractive, well-equipped kitchen with window is a separate room. There is a twin bedded room. A full bathroom is off of the hallway. The queen bedded room has an ensuite bathroom and faces an internal courtyard. Between the bedrooms is a small laundry room with washer and dryer.

The apartment is situated on a beautiful, ancient Florentine street very close to the Piazza Santa Croce, also a 10 minute walk to both the Ponte Vecchio and the Duomo. All of historic Florence is within walking distance.

Santa Croce, Italy - Florence, Home of Domenico

This is the area immediately to the east of the most touristed and central part of Florence’s historic core. Spreading north of the church of Santa Croce, the neighborhood is a little more residential and features excellent restaurants and theaters, plus cultural sites like the Casa Buonarroti. And the Sant’Ambrogio Market is the locals’ favorite alternative for food shopping, a neighborhood affair of shops and market stalls, indoor and outdoor, selling produce, clothing, cheeses and meats, house wares and prepared foods. The neighborhood is an easy 10 –15 minute stroll into the heart of the historic core but is a little more laid back.


Location


Landlord

The apartment was lovingly restored by an American owner to American tastes. Like most of our Florence apartments, the Domenico apartment is managed by a local apartment representative with whom you can speak during business hours.

Reviews

Here's what our guests have to say

Jennifer Threadgill

★★★★★

I loved living in the apartment and being a temporary Florentine. The apartment is in a great neighborhood and very near Santa Croce church. Our location made us close to all of the historic area. The apartment was delightfully furnished and a real pleasure to stay in.

Linda and Mary Backiel

★★★★★

Delightful. Perfect location. Excellent facilities. Second bedroom was noisy due to tiny street used more at night than day for noisy activities, from arguments to trash re-arranging. A minor distraction. Overall, perfect.

Marybeth Davis

★★★★★

The apartment had everything that we needed and more. The individual a/c heating in each room was great since our preferences varied. We had plenty of room. It was well situated and we eventually got the wireless going with Mary Jane's help. Lots of shopping nearby and easy to walk to everything we wanted to see.

Carol Nolde

★★★★★

Spacious apartment for four people. The host left us a bottle of wine and fruit and basic supplies for breakfast--a nice touch. Excellent location!

Darrel Piercy

★★★★★

We were very comfortable in the apartment. The location was wonderful as we walked to most of our destinations. The only noise was men (?) out on the street at about 2 a.m. several nights. Nothing we couldn't deal with.

Ralph & Nancy Quincy

★★★★★

This was the perfect apartment for us and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We felt fortunate to have been able to book it.

Howard Johnson

★★★★★

For a lot of years now, our experience with UnTours has been great. UnTours has made the difference for us between being able to take an occasional trip to Europe and going regularly. UnTours has the perfect system--you get us there, takes us to our apartment, get us a bit familiar, LEAVE US ALONE, then help us to get home. It couldn't be better!
