This was a nice place to stay in Florence, what it lacks in luxury it makes up for in proximity. It is so close to the Duomo!! Walking distance to everything. The people are very nice and the hostel is super clean.

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
