About Florence

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. 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.

You can opt to be in the thick of things 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.

All our Florence collections:

Where to stay - which neighbourhood?

  • When it comes to choosing the right part of Florence in which to lay your head, you’ll find that many of the best places to stay are within the Historic Centre, a World Heritage Site that encompasses many of the city's main churches, museums and galleries.
  • There are two main parts to the Centro Storico: the area around the Piazza della Signoria, which is close to the Duomo, the Uffizi and the Ponte Vecchio, and the areas around the Santa Maria Novella and San Lorenzo, which are beautiful churches and historic palazzi, they’re just a bit earthier.
  • To the east is the Piazza Santa Croce, which is great for markets, cafes and bars.
  • The south bank of the river Arno is the Oltrarno, which is also great for foodies. It has a boho-chic charm.
  • Then, above the city are the hills -- perfect if you’re visiting in summer and want a break from the heat and crowds.

With so many choices available is shouldn't be too difficult to find one of the best places to stay in Florence to suit your requirements. Florence is always popular though, so do book early for your favourite.

  • Velona's Jungle is a good option if you're looking for something small and intimate, that's also a little bit different. Here you'll find just four luxurious and individually designed suites and it's adults only. Located in a quiet leafy area, but still only 15 minutes or so from all the top sights.

The Best Places to Stay Near Florence

  • Villa Antea is to the north of Florence, about 15 minutes from the centre of town, in a lovely, leafy old neighbourhood shaded by lime and poplar trees. This lovely, peaceful villa has been in the same family since 1887 - so has some wonderful original features and decorations.
  • The Villa Rucellai is a charming 18th Century villa on the outskirts of Florence, surrounded by its own olive groves and grape vines. Another example of an old family home turned charming B&B, the villa has been home to the Rucellai family since 1740. Public areas are grand and homey, while the eleven rooms are simple and comfortable.
  • For a spot of understated luxury in the outskirts, book a room at the Villa San Michele. Converted from a 15th century monastery, it boasts glorious terraced gardens with breathtaking views over the city and a large pool.

  • If you’d prefer to stay in an apartment or private villa we recommend you visit our online partner booking.com.

Travel Information

  • Florence’s Amerigo Vespucci international airport is only 15 minutes from the centre of town by bus or taxi, but it might also be worth considering travelling via Pisa Airport, which is well connected to Florence too.
  • If you want to hire a car - which we strongly advise if you’re staying in Florence and you want to see more of Tuscany - we recommend you visit our online partner Rentalcars.
  • The huge number of hotels and guest houses means that in the cooler, quieter months there are some excellent accommodation deals to be found. 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 and February too. August is popular, but as far as the weather is concerned it’s one of the worst times to visit the city - it bakes at this time of year.
