Palazzo Gamba couldn't be in a better location. Its not fancy but it has a very efficient layout with a fridge, cooktop and even a dishwasher. All of the shops and restaurants and steps out of the door. Would stay again.

We stayed there with our 2 daughters for 4 nights. Extremely well located. From our room we had a splendid view of the Duomo. So impressive! Can be noisy from the piazza at night though. Christina welcomed us and was most helpful.

If you're in Florence for the arts and architecture, hence will be walking around a lot and need to a brief rest or from time to time, this location cannot be beaten. It's so close to most of the attractions, you can pop into the apartment to freshen up between visits, which makes them so much more comfortable and enjoyable....

The apartment is centrally located and the apartment is right next to the Duomo. The receptionist was very helpful(sorry I forgot your name). He arranged our taxi from the apartment to the train station. Plenty of restaurants nearby. A short walk to Uffizi and Accademia galleries. I couldn't ask for a better place to stay. I highly recommend this place.

I can really recommend Palazzo Gamba, from check-in (which was arranged for after reception was already closed) to check-out and ordering us a taxi we could not fault any of the reception staff. We arrived by train and it was an easy walk to the apartment, even with luggage. Because it was outside of reception hours, we called a person...

You have the Duomo right outside your apartment. What else can you ask for? The apartment is very spacious. Convenient location - near the train station and many attractions, there is also a good supermarket nearby. The negative thing is the upholstry of the couch was very dirty. That should have been cleaned up. (This is a review for my...

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
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.
