    Fabulous Florence – a real Renaissance city

    The peerless home of Da Vinci, Dante and more pasta than you can shake a breadstick at, the Metropolitan City of Florence is a beautiful city that sees millions of visitors every year. A bustling hub – it's the capital of Tuscany, after all – Florence offers everything from Renaissance art galleries and medieval buildings to hip cocktail bars, buzzy international restaurants and trendy shopping – sometimes all within the same block. You'll find plenty of central Florence vacation rentals within walking distance of the city's countless attractions, like the Uffizi Gallery, the Florence Cathedral and the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum.

    Set your sights on Florence's epic sightseeing

    Visitors typically find themselves engaged in 1 of the 3 S's – sightseeing, shopping and snacking. You could spend weeks taking in the city's historic buildings, bridges and monuments – or you could check out the spectacular Florence Cathedral and call it a pretty successful day. Fashionistas can stroll the Via de' Tornabuoni, where names like Gucci, Prada and Tiffany will probably more than ring a few bells. And since no visit to Tuscany would be complete without sampling – or feasting on – the regional cuisine, the Santa Croce neighborhood boasts everything from traditional trattorias to sushi bars, delis and osterias.

    No filter needed – snapping up Florence's attractions

    Now's the time to perfect your selfie pose, because you'll be face-to-face with some truly Instagram-worthy sights in Florence. If history's your bag, you can visit medieval landmarks like the Ponte Vecchio bridge, the iconic Fountain of Neptune and the castle-like Palazzo Vecchio. Artsy types can check out originals by luminaries like Botticelli, Da Vinci and others at the Uffizi Gallery, a world-class art museum dating from the 16th century. At the nearby Museo Galileo, visitors of all ages can enjoy a deep dive into the history of science, from ancient times to the modern day.

    (Th)under the Tuscan sun – Florence's seasons

    The climate of Florence is somewhere between humid subtropical and Mediterranean, with hot, occasionally stormy summers, cool winters and plenty of rainfall throughout the year. Average highs during the summer months peak in the low 30s in July and August, while winter temps range from 2 to 12 degrees between December and February. Spring and fall are mild, but pack an umbrella – April, October and November are the wettest months. A popular destination in the spring and summer, you'll have the best luck finding killer deals on Florence vacation rentals during the slower fall and winter months.

    Going with the flow in riverside Florence

    Florence sits in a low-lying basin along the broad Arno River. A number of hills surround the city, and you'll find several smaller streams flowing through the region, too. The city itself is dense and urban, with lots of winding streets and medieval stone buildings in the historic city centre. Further out, you'll find wide boulevards, as well as a ring of modern suburbs and older villages on the outskirts of the city. A short drive east, the Casentino Forest National Park features wooded mountain slopes and a wealth of wildlife, including deer, wolves and more than a hundred species of birds.
