An absolutely delightful place to stay while in Florence. This is my fourth stay here and it only gets better. Francesca is the most wonderful hostess – friendly, knowledgeable and incredibly accommodating. The apartments are all well appointed and comfortable; in a historic building of this type, you will find the perfect combination of classic style and modern conveniences. The... More

Francesca was amazing. Extremely helpful locating attractions, giving advice. She helped me call a taxi to get to the airport at the conclusion of my trip. The apartment was totally upgraded, best shower that I had in all of Europe. Spacious, clean, stocked with necessities. Best experience of my month in Italy.

We recently stayed there for 3 nights. The apartment was great. It was literally 5 min walk to the Basilica and across the road from Academia Galleria. You cannot ask for a better location. Francesca and her team was excellent. You can stop your search for a place to stay. Look no further. Just stay here!

We had a wonderful stay at Palazzo Alfani al David. We would stay here again. Francesca was lovely and organised our airport transfer and made a restaurant reservation for us. Wonderful, clean and well located accommodation.

We arrived in Florence with two very young children in tow, completely fraught. The kids were screaming, we'd been travelling all day and we were lost. We called Francesca for help and had to hang up several times in order to address the growing crisis in the back seats. In the end, I bundled the kids into a Gelateria, leaving... More

My husband and I stayed in the deluxe apartment with our two daughters, ages 13 & 8 in July. Francesca and her associate met us there at a designated time, as there is no concierge or front desk 24/7 like a traditional hotel. Both ladies were very friendly and very helpful. The apartment was gorgeous. Two spacious bedrooms, two modern... More

This was our first visit to Firenze. We called ahead to confirm our arrival, and Francesca arranged to have someone pick us up at the train station. We arrived at the apartment to find it across from the Acadamia and a few blocks from the Duomo. Could not have a better location. It gets better, our host, Francesca was wonderful.... More

Very, very nice apartment and best location with excellent service. Best what you can get in Florence. Very clean and everything worked fine. They even managed transport from airport too, but taxistation is just behind a corner, if you want to use that.

Very, very nice apartment with excellent location and wonderful service and all! It's really worth of every euro. Only the elevator was slow and hot and small, but if you can use stairs, it doesn't matter at all.

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence, surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking students provides the tranquil surroundings for the elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read the daily newspaper. Home to several universities, including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A bridge connecting the modern cultural activity of Florence to its classic art, represented by the everlasting magnificence of the original David, resonates as a symbol of Florence and of Italy as a whole. Get lost in a Neoclassic world, a journey back in time through historic buildings like Spedale degli Innocenti (Hospital of the Innocents), San Marco church, Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, and natural jewels like the Botanical Gardens.
