Condo/Apartment
The apartment 'Flora' is situated in Piazza del Duomo in the heart of Florence’s historical centre, on the 4th level ( no lift with 87 steps ) 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.
