This Florence duplex is a short drive from Piazzale Michelangelo, Porta San Niccolò, and Pitti Palace. It’s in a quieter neighbourhood on a hill, so you can unwind after days in the city with a glass of wine overlooking the skyline. The space is modern and elegant, though you’ll need to be prepared to climb some stairs to reach it – keep this in mind when packing. Roomy enough for four guests, it’s worth noting that one will be sleeping on the sofa bed in the upper living room. However, this won’t bother those visiting Florence on a city break, where sightseeing and dining out are the priority.
