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.

We loved the flat which was immaculately clean with a smart kitchen, modern bathroom with good walk-in shower and a comfy bed and plenty of wardrobe space. It is moments away from the Piazza Santa Croce where we enjoyed sitting in the sun at a lovely cafe having breakfast every morning - nowhere is far away and there are plenty of excellent restaurants very close at hand.

Can be noisy with motor bikes going to and fro at 7am but don't let that put you off as it is a different experience from across the river. Half way between Santo Spirito and San Freddianno and Del Carmine! Super little eating places and a super market nearby.
