Enjoying Your Stay in a Holiday Rental in Florence, Italy

Florence is one the most popular tourist destinations in Italy. This capital of the Tuscany region is also considered the foundation of Italian Renaissance. Tourists who come to this city usually have some prior knowledge regarding its cultural and artistic value, but they know a little about its pleasant atmosphere.

The Artistic Side of Florence, Italy

Those interested in art and culture will find a visit to Florence an ideal outing. Its historic city centre, recognized as a UNESCO's World Heritage Site, is one of the main attractions. Interesting structures that you can view from your holiday accommodation in Florence include the domed Cathedral of Santa Maria del Flore, the Campanile, the Ponte Vecchio and the Fountain of Neptune. Provided that you have your Florence apartment rental in the Centro Storico, you won't have to travel a lot to get to these highly fascinating and unparalleled attractions.

According to UNESCO, Florence city centre alone is a home to more than 30% of the world's most fascinating artistic treasure. And to help you have a real good idea of the amazing workmanship, the city offers a number of tour operators that take you to these artistic wonders without making you stand in long queues.

Florence offers quick and easy access to some of the very best and internationally renowned restaurants.

However, if you are interested in having the authentic Florence dining experience by tasting delectable Italian dishes, you better go find a classic trattoria. You may have to go through some hassle to find it amongst the boutiques and shops, but it's definitely worth the effort. Another great idea is to stay at a self-catering apartment in Florence, which is usually an attractive option for families. Just make sure the apartment you choose is stocked well with all flavors of Vivoli ice cream.

Top Holiday Zones in Florence

A visit to San Marco should always be on your list to mingle with other tourists and experience youthful exuberance - in fact, it's considered the student quarter of the city. The main attraction that pulls flocks of tourists towards San Marco is Michelangelo's David on the Pizza Annunziata.

The whole of Tuscany is known for its wineries and the most amazing and beautiful scenery found anywhere in Europe. Even if you plan to stay in your rental apartment or holiday villa in Florence, you will still be in the middle of astounding scenic beauty.

Out of your holiday home in Florence, you will have a lot to explore. For instance, a visit to Chianti will be a memorable one; this guided tour will take you to the heart of the Chianti Classico area, to the south of Florence, where you can taste Riserva, Chianti Classico, and IGT Super Tuscan. You can also opt for a day tour from Florence to Siena, another antique city, where there is a lot to see and do.

The Weather in Florence

Summers in Florence are pretty hot, but winters are quite mild. Those coming in the autumn and winter don't have to witness long queues, but be ready to deal with huge crowds in the summer months. In case you're coming from June until September to check Renaissance masterpieces, make sure to book Florence accommodation early.

From Australia to Florence:

Aussies can easily get to accommodation in Florence because they can catch flights from Tullamarine, Melbourne to get to Charles De Gaulle, Paris through Changi International Airport, Singapore. Your final stop will be the Amerigo Vespucci Airport, which is no more than 5km from the city centre.

Alessandra and Alessandro were helpful from the moment we booked, and Alessandra had lots of good suggestions and helpful information for us as soon as we arrived which helped us settle in very quickly. The apartment is very comfortable and has everything we needed, even cooking a meal or two - although there are so many great eating options right by the apartment. The loft room was perfect for our 18yo daughter to feel she had her own space when she wanted, and the living area provided plenty of space for the 3 of us to relax for a midday rest or after a long day sightseeing. Alessandra provided lots of extras to make us feel spoiled, from chocolate to wine. And of course the view was beautiful, we even got to watch a thunderstorm one evening. Thanks so much Alessandra for a wonderful stay in Florence. We will recommend to others.
