Experience Florence in a villa

The city of Florence dates back centuries, yet it has a combination of historical and modern offerings that all sorts of travelers can enjoy. It's one of the primary centers of Italian culture, as it was the birthplace of the Renaissance. The architecture is alluring enough in its own right, but inside these buildings, you'll find plenty of museums and art galleries, including the prestigious Uffizi Gallery. By booking a villa in Florence, you can explore all of this yourself while enjoying some of that Renaissance architecture yourself.

Things to do

Sightseeing near vacation rentals in Florence

With such a tremendous supply of cathedrals, palaces, and museums, it's no wonder the entire city center is a historical landmark. Start your sightseeing excursion at the Galleria degli Uffizi if you're interested in the Italian Renaissance. It has the world's greatest collection of art from this era, and is conveniently located in the same neighborhood as Palazzo Vecchio, a fortress designed in the 14th century. The city's most iconic landmark is its duomo (cathedral), adjacent to the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo and topped by its beautiful cupola, or dome, that offers a stairway climb past stained-glass windows to a breathtaking view of the city.

There are more sights to see, shopping to do, and food to eat in Florence than any mere mortal can describe. Wherever your Florence vacation rental is located, it is likely on a picturesque cobblestone street or near Renaissance-era architectural wonders. Guided tours are a treat, especially for first-time visitors. You can take your pick of walking tours in town, Vespa excursions through the surrounding hillsides, and food tours led by experts in local wine and Italian cuisine. Speaking of food, cooking classes are also available for kids and adults.

Weather

Local weather in Florence for your stay in vacation rentals

The subtropical climate of Florence brings hot summers and cool winters, and it draws the most visitors between May and September, when brilliant sunny days are common and open-air dining is de rigueur. Early spring and late fall are good options, too, when average temps cool down to the 60s and 70s and crowds thin out. For a true steal on a Florence vacation rental, plan your trip between November and March. You'll have the run of the city, but remember to bring rain gear and your winter coat.

Natural features

Ready to source your own produce? Head out on a truffle hunt

Plenty of visitors don't look up from their wine long enough to take in the natural landscape around Florence. You can't blame them, but the area has much to offer the dedicated outdoors person. Right in the city is Cascine Park, 400 acres that include an amphitheater and an ice house, but that also make room for 19,000 trees. Animal lovers can head to the hills surrounding the city to wander the lush Tuscan woods or go on a truffle-hunting expedition, and birdwatchers can hope to spot tawny owls, ring ouzel, and the rare glossy ibis.
