Florence

4.4

Birthplace of the Italian Renaissance

Considered a cultural, artistic, and architectural jewel of Italy, Florence is the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance. Europe's unquestioned capital of culture, politics, and finance during the Middle Ages, the city has a turbulent history, including a period of rule by the powerful Medici family. Today millions of tourists flock to this thriving urban center for its sightseeing opportunities, including attractions like the historic town center, declared a World Heritage Site in 1982. Often ranked among the world's most beautiful cities, Florence contains some of the country's finest examples of Renaissance architecture. Even though it offers numerous places to visit, from museums and art galleries to World Heritage-listed monuments, Florence is also a major international commercial and industrial center. It's a surprisingly compact and pedestrian-friendly city: the majority of tourist sights are within walking distance of each other, making it relatively easy to get from one attraction on your itinerary to the next. Florence is in Province of Florence. Add Florence and other destinations in Italy to your travel itinerary using our Italy online tour planner .

Where to stay in Florence

Variety is not a problem when deciding where to stay in Florence. The compact town center is packed with hotels, hostels, and small inns. The drawback of this upmarket central area is that even family-run B&Bs often cost as much as luxury hotels. For more affordable lodgings, explore the area outside the tourist-driven city center. Staying in one of the city's residential neighborhoods allows you to immerse yourself in the daily life of local Florentines. B&Bs and hotels outside the center offer private parking and spacious rooms, all within walking distance of the main tourist sites.
