The best way of experiencing Florence like a true local is to find a beautiful villa to call home during your stay. Naturally there are plenty to choose from but here are the very best homes to make your own in this gorgeous renaissance city.
The villas of Florence provide space where the city has little. Many are on the outskirts; countryside dwellings with crisp gardens and cityscapes. After a day exploring museums and galleries, the peace they bring can be the perfect tonic. Those worried about having to forgo the red-domed Duomo or Michelangelo’s David shouldn’t be. Florence’s key landmarks are still easily accessed from most.
