Click here for the best places to stay in Florence

All our Florence collections:

Cradle of the Renaissance, Florence is one of the world's most beautiful cities, packed with wonderful art and architecture on a grand scale. Marble statues grace piazzas, ceilings and walls are fresco-covered and views are handsome and historic. And if you're here for Michelangelo, Botticelli and Leonardo da Vinci, then why not have the accommodation to match! The big chain hotels, present in so many popular destinations, don't seem to have a foothold here, and an increasing number of the best places to stay in Florence are independently run, many converted from large old family homes and palazzos.

A mecca for art lovers, some of the best places to stay in Florence are ideally located for those who want to reach their chosen masterpiece in the blink of an eye, so that they can beat the queues.

For those who are less fussy, many of our picks for the best places to stay in Florence display their own art. Frescoes abound in the old palazzos and many are stuffed with antique furniture, creating an aura in which you can almost see yourself dining with the Medicis, or plotting alongside Machiavelli.

As well as historic art treasures, Florence has a rich modern cultural scene. This is a place to come to eat extremely well, to attend great classical music or opera concerts, to see the latest art exhibitions - both old and contemporary and to live a little, or a lot. So Florence has long been the city break of choice for people whose taste runs to the artistic.

Or, if you're here to shop stroll down the Via de' Tornabuoni for a designer label fix, or visit the mercato centrale and soak up the local atmosphere, or pick up a bargain on the Ponte Vecchio.

You can opt to be in the thick of things (and most of our recommendations for the best places to stay in Florence are) or head for the hills that fringe the city where, especially in summer, you'll find relief from the heat and dust.

Florence has a lovely rural-urban vibe, so some of the villas on the outskirts of town feel like they're deep the Tuscan countryside, while still being only about a 30minute stroll to the centre of town.

One of the best things about staying in one of the villas on the outskirts of Florence is that there's a chance you'll have a lovely view of the city. There's also the benefit of being close to the vine-lined hills of Chianti.

The huge number of hotels and guest houses means that in the cooler, quieter months there are some excellent accommodation deals to be found (for self catering ideas go to our online partner booking.com). There's always something on here. A thousand and one events are packed in from late spring through early autumn - this is when there are outdoor events as well, but Florence is also a wonderful place to visit in December, January, February.
