A hotel stay can make or break a vacation. While friendly staff and early check-in can turn a trip from good to great, no AC and dated furniture can turn a trip from dreamy to dreary too quickly. As one of the most beautiful cities in Italy, it’s no wonder Florence is a popular tourist destination. With its stunning architecture, delicious food, and rich history as the birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence has so much to offer.

While there are plenty of vacation rentals and hotels to choose from, we know you want nothing but the best in this romantic destination. After several visits and scoping out the best areas and properties, we’ve curated a list of the top 10 places to stay for 2-4 nights in Florence, Italy.

A Note On Our Travel Style:

We settle for nothing less than:

  • Mostly four & five-star properties with the occasional boutique or highly rated three-star hotel
  • Comfy bed(s)
  • Strong AC
  • Good Wi-Fi
  • Walking distance from either a metro stop or a few must-see places
  • $150-$650 a night (depending on trip budget and vibe)

Whether you’re going for the views, the vibes, or the brand (get and use those miles and points)! Luckily, many of the properties offer a little bit of everything. Happy planning! (Take us with you!)
