Luckily for you only a smaller percentage of tourists to Italy and Florence consider renting an apartment, you may find Florence apartment rentals still available in high demand areas and during peak tourist times!

Also consider that eating out frequently at Florence Restaurants can damage the budget, and having your own cooking facilities can be a blessing.

An apartment rental in Florence Italy will, generally speaking, be a lot quieter, more private and certainly more spacious (a major complaint in Italy being the small size of hotel rooms.)

Apartment Rental Florence Italy: possible information to confirm with your Florence rental agent:

  Air conditioning in Summer months! Florence can get really hot during the summer months with little or no breezes blowing through the centre. Many Florence apartment rentals have them but do you want to be the one without?

  Heat in Winter? December, January and February can chill the bones of the most fanatical Florence tourists too. Do check whether your Florence rental apartment has heating.
Also check who controls the heating? In some apartment blocks in Florence the heating is not controlled by the individual apartments but rather by the "building" and comes on twice a day - mornings and evenings.
