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. Tourists who stay in Florence holiday homes during the spring will enjoy daytime temperatures of between 14ºC and 19ºC.

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.

Modern kitchen and bathroom and air con throughout. Super comfy beds, and pristine clean. I simply cannot recommend it enough. The best bit is the terrace and particularly the morning views with the swallows singing. Quite simply a gem, and if I'm fortunate to go to Florence again, it's exactly where I'll stay!! Thank you Lucia.

Due to our son's specific needs such as certain preferences in food and drinks, we had been in contact with Simone prior to arrival in Florence. From the get go he offered to assist in every way possible to make our holiday especially for our son as smooth as possible. I agree with everybody's comments about Simone being the best host ever. Very easy to talk to and makes himself accessible and available for queries and inquiries alike. Regarding the apartment, it felt like home soon as we set foot in it. Spacious and tastefully decorated. It had everything one needs. We had a welcome basket of fruits, wine and the fridge as stacked with milk and water. Nice treat! We had a rental car and Simone helped us find an overnight car park next door but one to the apartment. Great! The neighborhood is safe. Walking distance to most tourist attractions and the taxi drivers seem to know the location so very reassuring. Taxi stand about 2 minutes across the road from the apartment. It's hard to leave this place at the end of our holidays. I would gladly recommend this place to everyone. If we're ever back in Florence, would stay here again. Simone, a huge thank you!!
