What to budget for vacation rentals Florence Italy


trastevere rome vacation rentals

Certainly stylish vacation rentals Florence Italy can present a challenge to the budget, but that being said prices of vacation apartments in Florence range upwards of only 300 euros per week. If you consider the average price of hotel rooms in Florence then vacation rentals florence Italy can offer fantastic value for money.

Apartments in Florence vary greatly in size, style and furnishings and it goes without saying that the more modern and elaborately furnished, the higher the price tag you can expect. Some apartment rentals in Florence Italy even boast authentic antique furnishings and decor in the Tuscan style.

Most apartments come equipped with a washer and dryer, linen, and bedrooms are usually listed as “double” or “single." However, be cautioned, the double in Europe is more like a single in the ex-colonial territories. If you want a comfortable sized bedroom you need to confirm that it's a really large or king-sized bedroom. (Utilities are usually included in the price.)

A Florence Italy rental is usually by the week but you can also find apartments priced on a daily rate. There are usually separate prices according to the various peak and quieter tourist seasons.


The compact historical centers in Europe

Historical centers in Europe are usually quite compact with narrow streets and little parking, taking that into account the apartments in Europe are similarly smaller than what, say, the ex-colonial countries may be used to. Cooking is a passion in Italy and kitchens are usually a fair representation of this - a good size and well stocked. The family usually gathers in the living room, which is the dining room, lounge and sitting room all rolled into one.

The advantage of being situated in the center of Florence

Everything you would expect to find in a beautiful Italian historical center (great restaurants, designer stores, sizzling nightlife, beautiful sights) you can find in the center of Florence. The city's impressive cultural heritage, art and architecture will be at your finger tips. Certainly there are many exciting Florence tourist attractions on your list, but these should be at the top:

  • The Florence Dome (il Duomo) and its beautiful view over Florence. for art lovers,
  • the Uffizi, home to the greatest collection of renaissance art in the world, ( over 1700 paintings and 300 sculptures).
