Luxury Rental Apartments for Your Next Florence Vacation

Florence, Italy, is a vacation destination for many because of the many interesting things to see and do. Rental apartments, villas, and houses are a great choice for your next trip to the Tuscany region. These properties have many great amenities and perks such as air conditioning, internet access, cable television, and non-smoking facilities.

See the Art Florence is Famous For

Florence is known for its many art galleries and its superb art collections. One cannot possibly see all of the museums on one trip, but a few stand out above the others and should be seen. Housed in a former jail, the Bargello Museum is known for its incredible sculptures. It includes some Michelangelo sculptures that are not well known and many other pieces from the Renaissance era. Sculptures from other eras are also in this lesser-known museum that sees smaller crowds than most. On the other hand, those who prefer to view paintings will enjoy the Uffizi Gallery, which contains many world-class Italian paintings. One room, for example, contains only Botticelli paintings and other rooms feature other artists. Plan ahead when vesting any art galleries because many have long lines to get in. You can often purchase tickets ahead of time to avoid the lines.

Shopping and Gelato in Florence

Shopping in the leather markets of Florence is not to be missed, even if you are not generally a shopper. The leather goods are incredible works of art made by local artisans. There are several outdoor leather markets all within walking distance of each other. In addition, while you are shopping, you are sure to need a snack. The gelato in Florence is something that should not be missed. In fact, you should probably partake in this traditional Italian dessert several times during your visit to Italy. You will not be disappointed by the gelato quality and flavor choices if you visit the Florence Gelateria, but there are many other shops offering similar fare.

Visit the Churches of Florence

The Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore (known simply as the Duomo) is the religious center of Florence. Located in the Piazza del Duomo, this church is recognizable by its large dome and red tiled cupola. Climbing to the top of the dome, via stairs, enables visitors to get an amazing view of the city. The Basilica di Santa Croce is similar to the Duomo in its Gothic style. It has a great deal more artwork inside, however, including gorgeous frescoes by Giotto. In addition, many famous Italians are buried at the Basilica di Santa Croce, including Michelangelo, Machiavelli, and Galileo.

The Weather in Florence

The weather in Florence varies by season. Winters encompass the months of December, January, and February when high temperatures are in the 30s. Spring comes by March with the blooming of the azaleas and temperatures in the 60s and 70s. Summertime temperatures can be quite hot and very humid with high temperatures in the upper 80s in July, August and September. Additionally, late August and September tend to be quite rainy.

We have stayed at other Homeaway properties where the pictures showed the property to be better than reality, but here the pictures were not as good as this light, airy, high ceiling apartment feels. The apartment had that crisp and clean feeling. We notified Sibillia of our arrival time at the train station and someone was waiting outside the door to greet us and acclimate us to the apartment. She also spent almost an hour answering our questions about Florence, including finding a link to purchase tickets to the opera. The entrance is just off the Via Duomo and next to a taxi stand which generally had a taxi waiting, very convenient. Great view of the Duomo and the plaza. The only downside was a slow elevator, but two floors up or down is good exercise. I would like to recommend ZEB restaurant on the other side of the Arno on a small square. It has at most twenty five seats around a new gleaming counter that displays many dishes and deserts. The owner chef comes to the counter and explains the various dishes available, filling the plate as requested. High quality food at a reasonable price.

You could not ask for a better location and the apartment itself was full of old world charm but with all of the modern amenities us spoiled Americans require. The Piazza is a very lively, exciting place to be and we found ourselves serenaded one night while going to sleep with an opera singer performing in front of a symphony. Does not get anymore magical than that. Gaia and her staff were amazing. We cannot wait to return!!
