Hotels in Florence
The heart of romantic Tuscany, Florence was the birthplace of the Italian renaissance, and possibly the most important city in the world in the 12th to 16th centuries. Put yourself among the rich history, beautiful architecture and fascinating culture with a stay in a cheap hotel in Florence.
Florence enjoys a subtropical climate, and some of the warmest temperatures in Italy, so you can soak up the sun while soaking up culture. Although, with the city being away from the coast, it's perhaps best avoided at the height of summer, when even the locals find the heat to be a bit too much.
More than eighty museums are packed into the relatively small city centre, meaning that you'll only have to take short walk from your Florence hotel to immerse yourself in the city's culture. An absolute must visit is the Uffizi gallery, which displays masterpieces by the likes of Titian and Botticelli, and early works by Da Vinci. We recommend that you book your tickets in advance to avoid the queues. Pitti Palace, once home to the powerful Medici family, is also filled with art treasures, and you can enjoy fantastic views of the Tuscan countryside from its gardens.
The Santa Maria del Fiore cathedral is a real a Florentine icon, and its dome, a spectacular feat of engineering in the 13th century, is just as an impressive sight today. The crenelated battlements, grand courtyards and fascinating art and artefacts of the former town hall, the Palazzo Vecchio, make it a stand out in the heart of the city, and it, along with the neighbouring Loggia dei Lanzi, has an incredible display of statues, including work by Michelangelo.
During your stay in a hotel in Florence, try some of the delicacies from street vendors to get a real flavour of the city while saving on restaurant prices, or treat yourself to one of the incredible sandwiches at Salumeria Verdi. Florentine Gelato is among the world's best, and you can sample unique flavours at the Gelataria Santa Trinita. Tuscany is also the birthplace of Chianti, and a great selection of wines can be found at Amorino.
High fashion, low prices
Florence is one of the world's most fashionable cities, and has a long tradition of crafting top quality leather goods and jewellery. Indulge in a spot of browsing at the exclusive vendors on the beautiful Ponte Vecchio, but save your money for the San Lorenzo Markets. If you're looking to splash out on some big name brands, take a trip to the outlet shops outside the city;in the nearby towns of Reggello and Montevarchi you'll find the likes of Prada, Armani and Gucci, and with the money you've saved on your cheap Florence hotel room, you can afford to bag a bargain or two.
