In the historic San Lorenzo district, this cosy apartment is a great choice for work trips or weekend breaks in the city. You can expect to hear some outside noise due to the central location, and we recommend packing light as storage and space are tight. The kitchenette is small with a stove but no oven, but you'll have your pick of Florence's restaurants right on your doorstep. Public transport is close by for traversing the city, and famous hotspots like the Basilica di Santa Maria Novella and Piazza San Lorenzo are just minutes away on foot.


The Plum Promise

  • No time for average – We rejected 6,553 homes in Florence, so you don't have to.
  • Hosts we know – With track records of high-quality hosting.
  • Rated ‘Excellent’ on Trustpilot – Exceptional service before, during and after your stay.

Home truths

    Parking in Florence can be tricky, so we recommend sticking to easily accessible public transport where possible.

    You can check yourself in here – you'll need a mobile device with internet access in order to access the apartment and the building.

    This home is in a central location so you can expect to hear some outside noise during your stay. Light sleepers might want to pack earplugs.

    Space is tight throughout, so we recommend packing light.

    You won't find an oven here – though there is a small hob with two burners. We think the kitchen is better suited to prepping lighter bites than large meals.

    There aren't curtains here and the lounge is overlooked by a neighbouring building, so the home may not feel fully private.

About Accademia

With the Piazza San Marco at its heart, this area is a hotspot for cultural sights. It’s packed with museums, churches, squares, and historic buildings that can keep you occupied for days on end. This bundle of streets holds some of the greatest artistic heritage in Europe – the Accademia Gallery houses the original David by Michelangelo, and many of the famous Italian painters were members of the Florence Academy...
