….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.

  1. Wow, that really is an amazing view of the Duomo. Alas, when I visited Florence, we stayed in a side street near the train station with a view of a brick wall. Maybe next time…:)

    1. Thanks for the RT love, Lorelle 🙂 It is perfect especially when you are a 2 people or more. For a single person it might get costlier.

  2. although we have stayed plenty of times in rented apartments when in Florence, I never heard of this place before. Is it new? Also maybe you could mention the price of a rental. Glad you had such a lovely time there.

  3. Wowee–that’s a great view. When we were in Florence we were going to the cheap and not-horrible route, but the if I ever go back I’d definitely like to stay a bit closer to the center of it all. And with a view like that, who could complain?

  4. I was thinking of Florence before I decided to go to Turin. At that time I was thinking of a place not that famous or the usual tourist destination so Turin it is. I hope to see Florence next time! Your photos looks beautiful and nice to laze around.
