Located in Florence’s vibrant Duomo district, Apartment Topaz is a modern 2-room apartment, and the perfect little hideaway for your Tuscan city break. This contemporary flat has one double bedroom and one bathroom, while a double sofa bed in the kitchen/living area can be used to accommodate two extra guests, bringing the maximum total to 4.  Perfect for two couples or a group of friends eager to be immersed in the vibrant city life, Apartment Topaz could even accommodate a small family as long as the youngsters don’t mind sharing a sofa bed!

With a sleek and minimalist interior, Apartment Topaz is the perfect place for a no-fuss break, and you’ll have everything you need for your stay. Entering the apartment, the equipped kitchen and living space is light and airy, complete with a dining table for 4, small television and large window for you to peek out at your cosy and quaint neighbourhood. Cosy and compact, and yet providing you with the necessary utensils and amenities for your stay, you’ll enjoy sipping your coffee or eating your breakfast together in the mornings. A pretty tiled floor completes this authentic interior, coordinated with equally charming dashes of pink and purple dotted throughout the apartment.

Apartment Topaz boasts one large, elegant double bedroom, similarly decorated with pearly white furnishings and floral artwork, contemplating the quaint ambiance of the apartment and local neighbourhood. With a comfortable Queen-size bed, you’ll love nothing more than collapsing into your sumptuously soft sheets after a day of exploring, learning, and adventuring! A TV completes the modern bedroom, but you surely won’t be needing this when the Tuscan sunshine gently filtering through your window invites you out for a slow, morning wander. Next to the bedroom sits a modern bathroom, attractively designed with black and white tiles, a brightly lit mirror for you to take your time getting ready, and a spacious shower and towel rail. Towels are also provided, and you’ll feel right at home for some luxurious pampering before a night out on the town, a romantic dinner for two, or a causal dinner with friends.

Located on the 3rd floor of a historical apartment block, Apartment Topaz is nestled in a charming and serene spot, and yet you are extremely well-connected to the bustling, touristic city centre. You are within walking distance of many major attractions, as well as the Santa Maria Novella railway station. What are you waiting for? Book Apartment Topaz for your dreamy city escape, immersing yourself not only within the traditional Florentine way of life but also the delightful cultural charm of Bologna, Siena, and the iconic Pisa, easily reachable by train.

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • Please note that the apartment is located on the third floor of the block, although there is a lift for assistance. However, the city location may not be particularly for those with reduced mobility
  • Please note that this is a strictly non-smoking property
  • It is not recommended that you hire a car for your trip. The apartment is in a highly pedestrianised zone, and your central spot means you are within walking distance of many major attractions
