Right above Florence's Teatro Verdi, this two-bedroom apartment is ideal for families and friends, with a sofa bed in the living room for an extra two guests. The gorgeous art of famous works like Michelangelo's David above the beds really make this home stand out, and while you can expect some outside noise here due to the location, we think it's more than worth it. You'll be just steps from attractions like the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, as well as plenty of shops and restaurants for stocking up on essentials and trying the local cuisine.

    This home is in an apartment building in a central location, so you can expect to hear some outside noise, and you may bump into other guests during your stay.

    Some cleaning and maintenance are provided here by your host.

Local guide


About Santa Croce

Santa Croce is a trendy, architecturally impressive neighbourhood that’s less busy than the Duomo or San Marco districts, but still in the heart of Florence. Home to the eponymous basilica, and the Casa Buonarroti museum, it’s located in the eastern part of Florence’s historic centre. The largest crowds have thinned out by this point, but if you stay here, you're still close enough to explore the whole city on foot....
