If you love the excitement of a holiday getaway in the city, Florence is the perfect destination. The great weather, incredible cultural sites and fantastic food scene (who isn’t a fan of pizza and gelato?) are just some of the reasons we love this city. Moreover, you can take day trips to visit the famous towns of Siena and Lucca or discover some of the region’s hidden gems that are well worth exploring. When traveling to Florence we highly recommend booking an apartment in the city center. This will be your home base and allows you the freedom to experience life in the city as a local. Whether you’re looking to sleep under original frescos, enjoy rooftop views or a more contemporary interior, we’re swooning over these 5 chic Florence pads.
