What a special place to stay - right in the mix of it by the Duomo. We had an apt at the very top overlooking the Duomo - Large Bedroom Living room, Breakfast area, large bath and our own terrace. The best part was the service from the owners - they were so helpful and welcoming. Breakfast was incredible. Just...

My daughter and I had a weekend away together in Florence and stayed at A Florence View. We could not fault it from the moment we arrived. Such friendliness, spotless facilities, a delightful view from the lounge area of our two-roomed 'suite' across the Duomo Plaza. The breakfast was the best continental breakfast I have ever had, which was brought...

My wife and I stayed here a year ago for several nights. Excellent location, near all the museums. Giuliana is a gracious hostess, full of helpful suggestions. The rooms were lovely and spacious, and the view of the Duomo is superb. A wonderful experience.

The location is great right on the piazza. The room size was large, bathroom was a bit squishy. The room decor was good the lady running the place was excellent and would be in anyway to please. Breakfast was included in the cost but if you are expecting a cooked breakfast then forget it as she serves up what she...

We had 3 nights planned at A Florence View B&B. We arrived late in the evening and we were met by a happy man (we later learned he is Giuliana's brother). He set us up in a room overlooking the Duomo plaza, gave us a couple of recommendations for dinner and was off to his home. We woke up to...

Great B and B loved the breakfast in room service. If you want a good feel of Italy stay here and it's in the centre of Florence. Staff are really helpful, the rooms are just really characteristic and showed us the best restaurants ect. on arrival. Would stay again.

A Florence View offers a very good value for a perfect location while visiting Florence. From our window, we could throw a hat in the front door of the Duomo. Our room also had a sitting room with a couch and small well stocked mini-bar. Each room had its own remote controlled heating & cooling. The very clean bath was...

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Duomo
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 as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
