  • On the way from the Duomo to the Ponte Vecchio, seen to the right. I think (lol) is a merry-go-round, partly due to Arc de Triomphe, take a photo right around the many boutiques, window-shopping the Italy brand among the old buildings to enjoy even better. A nice easy explore the nearby hotels, and are envious.

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.
