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.

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.

Very professional in all dealings. The apartment is spotless. The views from the terrace are amazing. Aircon very good in 44° temps. Lots of guides books to borrow don't weigh yourself down. Very comfortable bed. Thank you!

Apartment was cool we used the fans. We didn't cook but that is because you are spoilt for choice in florence especially with the proximity to the market with all the food stalls in the communal restaurant. Very quiet. Would live to go again. Heath, Liz, finlay age 10 and Jocelyn age 7 from Gibraltar.
