Search the best hotels in 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 townor 10minutes on the local buses. 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.

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.
