Which area in Florence - Santa Croce or near Duomo?

Jump to last reply

I've narrowed my search to apartments in these 2 districts in Florence - Santa Croce, or just metres away from the Duomo (less than a 100).

Which of these areas is better for a young family's first time to Florence? We are arriving by train, and will have 3 nights in Florence, doing the usual tourist sights, plus hopefully a day trip to Florence.

Is one area more 'noisy' than the other at night (e.g. lots of pubs)?

Also, how important is it to have a dryer to dry clothes in winter? I will need to do my laundry while I am in Florence but am finding that it is quite rare to find a dryer in apartments.

Thank you!
