  • There I stayed at during my visit to Florence, I was well impressed: calm and contemporary amusement also presence, a decent nightlife around Piazza Santo Spirito. However it is not very crowded at night, while by day there is a nice influx of tourists: Palazzo Pitti and Boboli Gardens, Holy Spirit, Chiesa del Carmine and the Brancacci Chapel are magnets, but outside the classic route is nice to get lost in the narrow streets and small squares, neighborhood to discover and live.

  • It's like leaving the city and return to Tuscany and its villages, trattorias and gelaterias, markets and hidden gems of architecture

  • It means on the other side of the Arno. It is a part most peaceful of Florence but with shops and restaurants and active places also. But it has many very nice quiet and residential places. Worth crossing a bridge and return on the other.

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.
