Really could not have been a more fun and unique B&B experience, from entering through the courtyard to using your 5 keys to get through 5 different entryways. Beautiful building. Room had a fun automatic skylight and was spacious. The front desk staff helpfully booked a museum reservation for us for the next day, too. Breakfast was pretty average for... More

This is a B and B on top floor of a palace with stunning views over Florence. Only few minutes walk from duomo but felt like a million miles away, a real retreat from the hoards of tourists. Has it's own private gardens and our room had a terrace, a real sun trap. The only drawback was the rock hard... More

Reservation by phone(in Italian language) was difficult to make, as the woman couldn't tell us if they have something available, she didn't know room rates and offers that were mentioned on web page of the Residence. Fortunately Cristina by email gave us all the necessary information and we finally booked an apartment. Apartment was amazing, with skyline window and a... More

On the top floor of a old Renaissance palazzo the view is simply amazing. Very quiet place to stay in Florence. We had a very peacful stay in that place just a 5 minute walk to the center of the city. Breakfast is limited but... you are in Italy my friend. And in Italy we don't use to have breakfast... More

I chose this hotel for the great location and beautiful rooms. It is on a quiet street only a ten minute walk to the Duomo. There is a beautiful garden for guest access that is peaceful and stunning. The breakfast room overlooks the Duomo and city. Leny makes the best coffee! Leny is your host and she is lovely and... More

Stayed here for 4 nights - room was lovely with a great view of Duomo from the bed ! Very quiet / peaceful - excellent for light sleepers like me who still want to be easy walking distance to Duomo. Breakfast was a limited affair but did the job (ie toast / juice / coffee / cereal). Not really a... More

That has not already been said! Amazing place to stay in Florence, walking distance to all the main sights. Situated on the top floor of a palazzo, we had the room with the terrace, overlooking the duomo. Apertivo on the terrace, a perfect way to end the day! Access also, to the palazzo's beautifully manicured gardens and the feeling of... More

What an amazing experience, from first to last minute! We stayed in a very nice room with a lovely private terrace. Our friends stayed in a suite for 3 guests, and we all agreed; this is a true gem in Firenze. The location is perfect - walking distance to almost everything, yet so quiet and peaceful. Good size bathroom, great... More

From the superior service from Leny to the elegance and cleanliness of the room, this is an amazing place to stay! Just a block or two from Academia and very convenient bus routes to the main sites and train station. Property is gorgeous and these rooms are on the top floor and have wonderful views. You can see the duomo... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence, surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking students provides the tranquil surroundings for the elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read the daily newspaper. Home to several universities, including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A bridge connecting the modern cultural activity of Florence to its classic art, represented by the everlasting magnificence of the original David, resonates as a symbol of Florence and of Italy as a whole. Get lost in a Neoclassic world, a journey back in time through historic buildings like Spedale degli Innocenti (Hospital of the Innocents), San Marco church, Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, and natural jewels like the Botanical Gardens.
