Beautiful B&B in the city center. You can see the Duomo from your window. The room is huge with a poster bed, 20 foot high beam ceilings and renovated bathroom. The staff is very friendly. This is not a hotel!! It is a B&B but everything you need is right outside the door and it is a short walk to... More

We stayed here on 2 occasions during our 3 week stay in Italy May-june, 2015. The Residenza is about one block from the Duomo and within easy walking distance of Uffizzi, Academia, and other key sights in Florence. The owner/manager, Mariano, is efficient, helpful, and very considerate of his guests. Our first room was at back of residence so no... More

We stayed for four nights in early May 2015. This small hotel has so many good things I don't know where to start. Mariano greeted us and got us settled. He is so friendly and helpful anytime we had a question. The hotel's location is fantastic, only a few steps away from the Piazza del Duomo. Several rooms including ours... More

We had a great four-day stay in Florence and a great home base in la Residenza. Location - The location was steps away from the famous Florence Cathedral and Duomo and in a central part of the city. Easy access to the city's bus system and numerous sites in the heart of Florence such as the Uffizi. It's about a... More

This 7 (?) room B&B is located right at the Duomo. It has classic large rooms and classic decor. All that the Duomo area has to offer is right out the front door, and it is an easy walk from the train station. There is almost no common area, so you choose your breakfast and the time you want it,... More

My daughter and I recently stayed at the La Residenza del Proconsolo. It is in a fantastic location in Florence. Steps to the Duomo and tons of restaurants and shops. Mariano is the owner and he could not have been nicer or more than accommodating. I had requested a quiet room with an extra bed for one of my daughter's... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here a few weeks ago and it was the perfect home base to have while exploring Florence. It is literally just around the corner from the Duomo - which is great if you're planning on getting up early to go wait in line to get into the cathedral. You can hear the church bells ring...

My wife and I stayed here in late August-early September on our honeymoon. Mariano, the proprietor, was friendly and helpful. He was gracious enough to upgrade us to a better room at no charge! We really appreciated the gesture. I believe we were in the Brunelleschi room, but I can't remember. It had a very small balcony (which we did... More

Great location in Florence! Right by the central Duomo, and convenient to the bus/train station, shopping, restaurants, museums, and most all attractions. Slightly noisy at night, as our room was right on the street corner, but the view of the Duomo made up for that! Very spacious and clean room. Mariano, our innkeeper, was a great host, and made sure... More

The location of this place is excellent and the breakfast is brought to your room and what ever time you request. Our room was probably the smallest of the place (we peeked into some rooms as they were being cleaned and they were much bigger/nicer). Our view was non existent, but we had a good price for the room, so... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
