We chose Residenza Carmine at the recommendation of a friend who has stayed there multiple times--we didn't even explore other options! I can wholeheartedly concur that this is an excellent buy, for less than the cost of a tiny hotel room we stayed in a spacious studio apartment. The apartment (we were in Incenso, but they all are similar) looks... More

We have stayed at Residenza Carmine three times and each of these visits gave us many reasons to rebook when we are in Florence again. Our first accommodations were in the extra roomy Domus in the main building - and subsequently twice in the Incenso which is the perfect cozy size for the two of us. For eight days in... More

My sister and I took our first trip to Italy to celebrate her 40th birthday. While visiting Florence, we wanted the local experience. We booked the Domus apartment, and were completely amazed when we arrived. This is an absolute hidden gem; the outside entrance leaves much to the imagination. One you step inside, you are taken back in time to... More

Three of us shared the very large Domus apartment. All the space and facilities you could want including access to a garden and a rooftop terrace. Easy walking to the many good restaurants on this side of the river without having to venture near the tourist traps. And it has an authenticity about it when the owners live in the... More

This was our first trip to Italy and staying at Rezidenza Il Carmine was a highlight of the trip. We stayed in the Domus apartment for 6 nights. It was spectacularly beautiful. It felt like we had stepped back in time and were living a fairytale. It was tranquil and peaceful, with doors opening onto a green courtyard and the... More

My husband and I rented the Domus for 4 nights recently. Caterina met us at the door and showed us to our beautiful apartment. I loved being able to sit out in the garden and read. The place is out of the touristy area but a short walk to everything. Highly recommend staying here. I hope someday I get to... More

This splendid residence is next door to the point zero of the Renaissance: Brancacci Chapel with its Masaccio. The garden is ideal for a group of families, the hosts are perfect. Other 'magical' places nearby: Panificio S.forno, Osteria Santo Spirito, Gelateria La Carraia.

Staying in Santo Spirito / San Frediano

Neighborhood Profile
Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour. Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and they cannot help but stare at the architectural masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria delle Carmine churches. Tourists and Florentines alike join up in the area between Santo Spirito and San Frediano, connecting the Tuscan soul to the international spirit permeating the city.
