Florence has a special kind of romantic charm that draws in millions of visitors every year. Its classic, Renaissance architecture and scenes provide the perfect backdrop to a cultural city break. It’s also a haven for art lovers, with its collection of top-notch museums showcasing some of the most famous works from around the world. But it’s not just art that characterises Florence, it’s also a city dedicated to creating delicious Italian dishes paired with the freshest of wines, and it’s narrow, winding streets offer an intimate experience in a big city. For the perfect place to stay, book one of our apartments in Florence, which span the entire city – from hidden, cobbled alleyways, to wide boulevards overlooking the city’s main attractions, we have a boutique short term rental or cosy studio for you.
Florence is, without a doubt, one of the biggest bastions of art in Europe – maybe even the world. It’s full of famous museums that showcase incredible art and sculptures by some of the world’s most famous names. But there are also a number of lesser-known museums that are well worth a visit. The Bargello Museum, situated in the old prison barracks, boasts an important collection of Renaissance sculptures, whilst the Gucci Museum and the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum are must-visits for fashion-lovers.

Florence’s main airport is the Vespucci Airport, though this is a small hub and mainly reserved for domestic flights. Most visitors actually arrive in Pisa, at the Galileo Galilei airport which lies 80 minutes from Florence and can easily be reached by a direct train. You can also grab a flight into Bologna, which is predominantly serviced by low-cost airlines, and connects to Florence in the south by train. Visitors can also arrive in Florence via the Italian rail network from Rome which is just an hour and a half away and other major Italian hotspots, as well as neighbouring countries via the cross-country services.
Getting around Florence is easy with its tourist-friendly public transport including several bus and tram services that travel to all the major attractions, as well as a reliable and efficient train service which connects the city to nearby towns and destinations. The best way to get around, though, is by foot, with all the major landmarks within easy reach of each other.
The cultural vibe of Florence stretches to its accommodation option, too, proffering a menu of Florence accommodation that is full of heritage, history, and stylish Italian flair. Luxury hotels are peppered throughout the streets, offering a glimpse at the Italian high life, whilst upmarket hostels and budget B&B give guests the chance to get to know Florence on a local level. Alternatively, there are numerous affordable apartments placed all over the city, providing easy access to authentic restaurants, world-famous museums, and sprawling piazzas.
Florence is a tourist hotspot but there are still ways you can turn your trip into a local experience. Wander through the numerous open air and covered markets that sell a range of fresh produce – grab some cheese, Italian meats, and a bottle of wine and head to the nearest park. Afterwards, stroll from the Palazzo Pitti to Santo Spirito and dip into the quirky array of artisan shops that you can find along the way, from textile shops to local studios. You can even watch some of the artists at work. Then, grab a tripe sandwich from one of the tripe stalls dotted throughout the city – the authentic taste of Florence!
