Looking for a place to stay in Florence with a view of the Duomo?? I got you covered!
A stone’s throw away from the Duomo, in one of the best streets of the city is Asso’s Place- a luxury apartment in the heart of Florence. This 2nd floor apartment was my find on a dull Monday morning in Delhi. And a stroke of luck available on the dates I wanted!
It is your answer on where to stay in Florence with a view of the Duomo!
If you rent one room in the apartment, the whole apartment is yours! So no sharing with anyone which means- 2 bedrooms + 2 baths + a fully stocked kitchen + a spacious living room + a balcony all yours!! Win win!
….Imagine staying in Florence with a view of the Duomo
Florence’s Duomo is seriously the answer to sore eyes and heart. Waking to this view right in front of me was surreal. It was very comfortable being in the centre of everything yet being in a quiet apartment. When the bells chimed every hour, I had my own quiet moment..Just me and the Duomo.
Some places are extraordinary and dreamy..
The hospitality here was par excellence. I was left a bottle of prosecco along with milk, cake and biscuits for my breakfast. There was a couch in the living room where I could relax with hand picked books by Piero himself. And of course I could sneak a view of the Duomo of Florence from there!
Locals to the rescue..
Piero Asso, a local from Florence, is extremely passionate about Florence. He volunteers to show Florence’s offbeat sites and neighborhoods to his guests and calls it “Walk with Piero“. I was privileged to be shown Florence in a new light!
This is what I love about Italy- the people and the connections that come at the right time almost just when you need it and promise to last for a lifetime. Hoping to see Piero and his family in India one day.
Disclosure: I was hosted for the 2 nights at Asso’s Place but as always, all opinions here are my own. Thanks Piero for providing me these lovely pictures!
