Area
The apartment is located on piazza Signoria, one of the main cobblestone streets which forms part of the Duomo district in Florence’s historic city centre. The Duomo area constitutes the very heart of Florence and the area takes its name from Brunelleschi’s magnificent dome on the wonderful Santa Maria del Fiore cathedral. The Duomo neighbourhood offers an array of beautiful historical buildings and superb piazzas including the Mercato di San Lorenzo, the Piazza del Duomo and Piazza della Repubblica, famous for its attractive cafes, patisserie shops, live music, street performers and caricature artists. Furthermore, the area is surrounded by the city’s main cultural attractions, notably Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio, Ponte Vecchio, the Bargello Palace and Casa Buonarroti, the former home of Michelangelo, not to mention the Uffizi Gallery and the museum dedicated to the city’s cathedral “Museo dell'Opera del Duomo”.
The area also has much to offer in terms of fine dining and exclusive boutique shopping. The top Italian fashion houses are located along Via Tornabuoni, Via Calzaiuoli and Via del Corso and include the famous names of Salvatore Ferragamo, Armani, Versace, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Tiffany & Co. and many more. For those choosing an apartment in this area, the Duomo quarter also offers several food stores otherwise known as “alimentari”, supermarkets, laundrettes and individual gift shops as well as being adequately served by the local public transport service.

Parking
Florence city centre is a ZTL zone which means a “limited traffic zone” and therefore special rules apply to when you can enter this area. This particular apartment is in fact located within the ZTL zone so this means that if you are thinking of coming to Florence by car and wish to drive around and park, then you will need to pay special attention to the road signs, CCTV cameras and access cameras (they will show either a red/green light) in order to avoid receiving fines. Guests who need to travel within the ZTL zone by car to reach their apartment are advised to contact one of the private garages in the centre (the one nearest the apartment you are staying in) and obtain a temporary access permit. Upon arrival at the garage, guests must specify they need access for the ZTL and the garage will then note the vehicle’s number plate and forward it to the appropriate police headquarters.

This property for rent is not a hotel, agritourism, B&B or similar, and therefore by law, extra services similar to those you may find in these types of accommodations, such as a reception, concierge or security, receiving mail, provision of meals and drinks, cleaning and change of linen during your stay, and amenity kits with soaps etc. are strictly prohibited.

Reviews

  • 4.4/5 We get to the apartment (elevator is nice) on third floor. We open the door and enter the apartment. It's very nice. Then we open the window and take in the view. It's breathtaking. The direct view of Piazza Signoria is just so amazing. Just standing at the window and taking in the marble statues and the piazza strollers has to be the highlight of our Italy vacation. And yet, when the window is closed, there is no noise. Very quiet in the living room. At night though, some noise from the back street in our bedrooms. All through the day, within one block of the apartment, there is everything you need. This is the best location in Florence. If you can get this, get this apartment. You won't regret it.
  • 4.6/5 We had a wonderful stay in Florence. I am so happy that we decided to rent an apartment instead of a hotel and Signoria Vista is really beautiful. It was a great size (larger than it seemed in the photos) and having 2 bathrooms for the 4 of us (including 2 teenage girls) was essential. Having a flat screen TV with channels that feature american shows, in English, was nice at the end of a busy day navigating through a different culture and language. Of course the apartment has a location that couldn't be more central or more perfect for visitors. I never got tired of the view of the historic piazza beneath our window and it was especially great when we could watch the symphony and the excitement in the piazza on New Year's Eve. The Windows on Italy experience was also excellent. The booking procedure was simple, a representative was right there at the apartment to greet us and show us around, and the office staff was extremely helpful. I wanted to do a Tuscan cooking class, while in Florence, and the staff recommended Giglio Cooking School, which was exactly what I wanted (and I highly recommend this experience). I will certainly use Windows on Italy for my next visit to Italy. To offer a fair and complete review, I will mention a couple of minor issues that might matter to some people. There is some noise from the street behind the apartment (where the bedroom winodws are) late at night as people were headed home from neighboring bars or restaurants. Also the washer/ dryer is a single unit and is really ineffective (the dryer didn't dry at all), so we took our laundry to a local place. Finally, while we loved the bar/cafe right on the piazza and our cappuccino's there, the apartment could use as standard electric coffee maker (it did have a tiny stove top percolator). Florence was our favorite part of Italy and we recommend the experience.
