We visited Florence over a busy Easter weekend and were glad to have found this lovely vacation apartment in a very central location in Florence. We were travelling with a 9 month old baby and I would recommend these apartments for anyone travelling with a baby - the host Francesca was very helpful and provided a cot bed, high chair,...

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...

Right in the heart of Florence, just steps away from the statue of David ! Very secure building with quiet apartment in the rear of the building. Walking distance to all of the major sites in Florence!

Super friendly staff and clean accommodations. Our rooms were large. Overall excellent value for what we spent. Location is also amazing, directly across the street from the Statue of David, and 15 minute walk to the Train Station. Only drawback was that the WiFi was quite poor.

It hasn't been the first time we stayed at Palazzo Alfani al David. The first time was a few years back. So this time around was like coming home -- coming home to the warmest, kindest friends, and to the same high level of efficiency and professionalism as well. Nothing was wanting. From the accommodations and amenities, location, guidance and...

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.

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.
