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.

The Sanctuary is a charming place in a good position for sightseeing in the center of Florence. Most major monuments are within a reasonable walking distance. Lots of restaurants, bars, and a large supermarket in the vicinity. The residence has a lot of nooks and...More

This convent is convenient to the Duomo, but on a quiet side street. We had no noise at night. (We had a courtyard room, which I am sure helped with that). It includes a really lovely garden and a free (simple) breakfast. The nuns are...More

This quiet, lovely convent is located just off the bustling streets of Florence and close to the Duomo, restaurants, shops, and sites. The building itself is quite old and charming. Many rooms have a shower and toilet. Rooms are available for singles, couples, and even...More

This is a simple accommodation that is clean and welcoming. It was generally quiet, but I would recommend requesting a courtyard room if road noise bothers you. The location and price really can't be beat. It is blocks away from the Duomo and within walking...More

I booked a room with ensuite bathroom - simple, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast in the dining area overlooked a 'green oasis'- a spacious blossoming garden, while the sound of the nuns singing in a nearby chapel drifted in the distance. For solo travellers, the breakfast...More
