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.

  • The old palace where the Grand Duke of Tuscany resided. Not as well-preserved as I initially expected it to be but still quite a unique experience and possibly better than the ones I had in both Uffizi and Academia simply because the place is less crowded. The palace rooms and the gallery were the most popular parts, but you don't want to miss the other museums in the building either.
  • Beautiful place. It was very cool to see how the royals lived and the gardens were huge but also awesome! I really enjoyed going here and spending time just walking around the gardens thinking about how the royal family would have been doing. It was crazy. It is one of the things I was glad we went to do during our time in Florence!
  • Just when you thought the city was running out of wonders, you pop across the river to discover this magnificent palace! You can easily spend most of the day here, so take food and water with you so you can explore the extensive gardens. The views are great, and the Palace itself is up there with any in Europe.
  • Great views of Florence with drinking fountains scattered through the garden. Can get very hot and there are mosquitoes everywhere, mostly due to stagnant water. Otherwise not a whole lot to see. The palace is nicer than the exhibits which occupy it.
  • A lovely way to spend a day, inside or out. Beautiful galleries inside. We were able to see them all and still have time for a lovely walk through the gardens. The garden is definitely worth the cost! Lines can be long to get in the gallery. Keep in mind there are separate charges, so be sure to be specific about what you want to see.
