The area and how to find your way around
Crossed by the river Arno, Florence is located in the far north of Italy in the region of Tuscany. Bologna, located 100 km away, Empoli about 30 km away or Pisa just 80 km away are the closest cities to the Florentine capital, localities well connected thanks to the road network that surrounds the city. Florence Airport or Peretola is the main gateway to the city. Located a few kilometres from the centre, this airport receives flights from Spanish cities such as Barcelona or Madrid, making it its main connection with the rest of the world. So if you decide to book a holiday rental in Florence, you can take the flight from many different cities.The best areas to rent a letting in Florence
Florence is one of the capitals of art, architecture and culture. Cradle of the Renaissance in the fourteenth century, this city was always an important enclave for all who passed through Italy, something that can be seen in the richness of its streets and palaces such as the Pucci or the Vecchio. Therefore, renting a letting in the centre of Florence is the best option for those who want to fully immerse themselves in the medieval charm and history of the city. The most recommended areas are Piazza della Signoria and Piazza del Duomo. The latter is also the main commercial area of Florence, full of cafes, bars and restaurants. If you prefer to stay near the train station for excursions in the region, we recommend the area of Santa Maria Novella. With the advantage of being a few minutes from the historic centre. And if you have a tighter budget, you should know that the cheapest rentals in Florence are in Via Faenza and the surrounding area. With small alleys and full of shops, bars and quality restaurants at a cheaper price. It's true that it's a little further away, but you can still go to the city centre for a nice walk.
Types of travellers and activities
Florence's rich cultural past has left behind a trace that is difficult to erase. The importance of the city has meant that there are many museums in the city that should not be missed if the quality of its collections is taken into account. Possibly, the Uffizi Gallery is the most representative place of the city, a building full of works of art and with an architecture that will surprise you. You can also visit the Gallery of the Academy of Florence. Here you will find Michelangelo's famous David, a world-famous sculpture that represents one of the city's tourist attractions. In addition, strolling through the streets of Florence's historic centre is an enriching experience from any point of view. Temples such as the basilica of the Holy Cross or the cathedral of Santa Maria di Fiore with its spectacular dome will not leave you indifferent at any time. A tip: the interior of the basilica of San Lorenzo is of a spectacular Renaissance style, so your visit will help you understand the style of a city that carries the architecture in its essence.Florence for a romantic getaway
Like other cities in Italy, such as Venice, Rome or Verona, Florence gives off a charm that makes it an ideal destination to organise a getaway as a couple and rekindle the flame of love. The simple fact of strolling through its streets and letting oneself be carried away by its almost magical atmosphere that surrounds each alley already makes the trip unforgettable. The majestic enclosure of the fortress, the Garden of Roses, Casa Guidi, Piazza Santo Spirito or contemplating a sunset from Ponte Vecchio will propitiate moments to fall in love again. In addition, Florence has numerous romantic restaurants where you can enjoy dinner by candlelight and taste the delights of Italian cuisine, famous around the world. But we also recommend a tour of the region of Chianti, a few kilometres from Florence. An area that offers spectacular landscapes and the possibility of visiting farms and wineries where you can taste wine, olive oil and typical products of the land. Can you think of a better plan than renting a letting in Florence for a getaway with your partner?

Top 5 Recommendations in Florence
The cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore has an independent bell tower 82 metres high known as the Bell of Giotto. Its upper area offers truly spectacular views of the city, so getting up here is the best way to get a panoramic view of the city that you will remember forever.2. Visit the Vecchio Palace
Finished in 1322, this building still has the same function as in its origins: to house the city council. Its singular plant topped by an imposing bell tower are more than enough reasons to visit it, although you are also interested in knowing that its interior hides a collection of art with works by Michelangelo or Verrocchio.3. A walk around Piazza della Signoria
Authentic heart of the most majestic and classic Florence. All the buildings surrounding this square have a fairly high past and cultural value. The centre of the set is dominated by a fountain dedicated to Neptune made in a mannerist style that will surprise you with its detail.4. Discover the bridges of the Arno
Florence has many bridges due to the presence of the river in its central zone. Some of them are worth a visit, as they are an example of the most classical Florentine architecture. That way, you can't miss the Holy Trinity. However, the most important and oldest is the Ponte Vecchio. This construction continues to maintain its original form and the stands built on it since the beginning of its history.5. Surprise yourself with St. John's Baptistry
The building itself is a jewel of Florence's Renaissance style. However, what is most worth getting close to this building are its doors. Famous throughout the world, the bronze doors of the building are engraved with religious images of great artistic value.
