Make a holiday apartment in Florence your home away from home

Florence is the vibrant architectural and cultural capital of Tuscany with museums, palaces and churches that are filled with some of the world’s greatest paintings and sculptures. Florence’s central landmark is the Duomo with Brunelleschi’s revolutionary dome that dominates the Florentine skyline. The Tuscan city is situated alongside the banks of the River Arno among a verdant countryside of olive groves and vineyards.

HomeAway has secured a large selection of holiday apartments in Florence that benefit from close proximity and connection to all of the city’s major sites. These superbly furnished apartments can accommodate all party sizes, from couples and small families to groups of 10-12 people. Florence holiday rentals are also available that can cater to large groups of people. Those who want to be surrounded by the countryside just outside of the compact city might want to look at Tuscany holiday rentals in the Florentine Hills.

Things to do

-Museums: The Uffizi Art Gallery houses works by Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael, and Michelangelo’s David is the star attraction at the Accademia. Florence’s Archaeological museum focuses on Etruscan and Roman remains with collections that were started by the powerful Medici family.

-Shopping: Florence is a hub for the leather industry and handmade shoes, belts and clothes can be brought from studios, boutiques and market stalls. The shops along the length of the Ponte Vecchio or Old Bridge feature a smattering of art dealers as well as the city’s famous goldsmiths.

-Food and drink: Traditional Tuscan flavours permeate the city’s thriving food and wine culture. Local produce abounds with many cheeses, salamis and fresh fruits and vegetables. In the wine cellars around the city, visitors with holiday apartments in Florence can buy fine wines and extra-virgin olive oils to take home. Florence also boasts a cosmopolitan dining scene with many fine international restaurants.

-Arts and entertainment: Night owls are spoilt for choice with jazz clubs and night spots spinning the latest electronic music tunes. The city where modern opera was created doesn’t have its own opera house but the art form can be enjoyed at concerts in some of Florence’s historic churches and palaces.

Weather in Florence

Situated inland in the north of Italy, Florence has a humid subtropical climate with four distinct seasons. The hot summers reach a peak temperature of 31ºC in July and August and the winters are cold and damp. January temperatures range between a low of 1ºC and a high of 10ºC.

Travel to Florence

Florence has its own international airport with numerous daily flights to other European destinations. Nearby, Pisa’s Galileo Galilei Airport has direct flights to major US cities. Florence is one of Italy's major railway hubs and has good connections with the rest of the country. The city itself is quite small and the sights are within easy walking distance of each other.

A fantastic,perfect and clean property a terrace with a view enchanting

5 of 5
We loved the property it has loads of character, space and charm. The apartment felt safe and was in a safe feeling district. The terrace has amazing views of the Duomo and over the city of Florence, breathtaking something to see in every direction. We were greeted on arrival by the hosts son a lovely charming and helpful young man who gave us useful information on places to eat, where to buy groceries, places to visit and great information on places he thought were good to go to, like the best ice cream place and he was right. A property we will be returning to and recommending to friends who want to visit this beautiful city.

A Living Reality of the History of Florence

5 of 5
Our Accommodation was not the Donati Tower although via the owner we were able to view it whilst it was empty. We had rented the Studio Apartment in the Secret Garden, of which we had sole access, and were able to have peaceful times and dine by ourselves when we wanted. The Garden has a Greek Sphinx statue which is lit at night as a feature. This is not as I understand it an original part of the Garden but was bought and installed by the owners father many years ago. On arrival at the property, Stephan showed us round, and gave wonderful advice on local Restaurants and Places to Visit, most of which we managed to see and were extremely pleased with both the food and the sights. I had a particular interest in the Medici Family who ruled Florence 1400 -1600,s when it was the Capital of Italy, and my wife´s focus was with the Renaissance Art, both of which were fascinating. The Apartment is in a pedestrianised area right in the middle of the Historic Center, and just minutes walking to everything. It is newly refurbished and was spotlessly clean. Although a studio apartment it was compact and had space for everything, and had all that we needed, and was very modern in a fairly historic room setting. If we were to advise of any improvement, possible, we would suggest the addition of a small wall mounted microwave. If we were to return to Florence, we would certainly want to stay in the same studio apartment, and take more time to see the historic sites we were unable to visit and visit some more of the superb restaurants recommended by the owners.
