Choose a holiday apartment in Florence DuomoFlorence is considered the artistic and cultural jewel of Italy. This is where some of the world's most prolific artists, scientists, poets, architects and politicians came from. Many visitors flock to Florence each year to experience the incredible museums, galleries, shops, gardens, and dining establishments that Florence has to offer. One of the best ways to experience Florence is to rent an apartment in the Duomo apartment in the Duomo area, right in the historic center of the city.
Visitors who book Duomo accommodation will be just steps away from the famous Basilica di Santa Maria del Flore, also known as the Duomo. Work on this Gothic masterpiece began in 1296, and it was not completed until 1436, when Filippo Brunelleschi added the dome to the top of the tower that would awe and inspire people for centuries. Visitors can climb to the top of the dome for a bird's eye view of Florence and the surrounding Tuscan countryside.
