Despite being surprisingly small, the enchanting and alluring riverside city of Florence is still one of the top ‘must-sees’ on many people’s Italy travel list. Fall head over heels with the many masterpieces of Renaissance art and intricate architecture, as well as the glorious and inviting food and wine that is enough to make you never want to leave. This magnetic, romantic, and busy city has hardly changed since the Renaissance era, its urban streets still evoking many tales and stories. With such beauty and splendour lurking everywhere, it is only natural to be confused about the best place to stay. Here are five breathtaking Airbnbs that will definitely make your visit a spellbinding one:
This cosy and beautiful mini flat is located at the heart of Florence, where it is walking distance to all the main museums and tourist attractions such as the Accademia Gallery, Medici Chapels, Bargello, and Santa Croce. Enter the main room and be awed by how lovely and cosily it is decorated. The cute bed and relaxing pictures hung on the wall are enough to make you want to fall in love with this picturesque space. Need some fresh air? Open up those wooden doors and be enchanted by the beautiful views that Florence has to offer. Counter seats are perched on the balcony to provide a place for guests to chill and relax. Gaze across the surrounding rooftops from the balcony, and admire the great views. It gets even better when the sun starts to set. A small electrical kitchen, which consists of a fridge, microwave, toaster and a kettle, is also provided for your use. Three is not a crowd! Climb up to the second floor to reach a single loft bed, which is comfortable and cosy after a long day. Lounge on the plush velvet sofas in this cosy space beside the loft bed. Crunch on some chips or gulp down a cold Sprite while watching a show on the flat-screen TV. Pretty as a picture, the bathroom is decorated tastefully with cute flowers and bright green titles, a cheerful and happy sight to start the day.

LoveTheTower is an apartment located just 40 steps away from from Piazza Signoria, the first city square in the centre of Florence. The sizeable and airy living room is well furnished and modern, with shiny wooden flooring and a cute book shelf. Help yourself to an interesting read and snuggle up on the couch. Apart from the bright light over the middle of the dining table, there is also plenty of natural lighting from the windows that face the living area. A dining table, which seats four, can be used for guests that would like to have their meals in. Ever find it a hassle looking for the utensils you need? Which drawer is it again, and where are the knives placed? This cute dining table has a compartment where the utensils are prominently placed for everyone’s use, so now you don’t have to wonder where the fork is, because it is just right under your nose! Enter the warm and cosy bedroom and snuggle up against the clean linen sheets and feather light pillows on the king-sized bed. A small desk and lamp are provided for any last-minute work that needs to be done. This homely and spacious bedroom has all the space in the world for you. From your expensive Chanel fur jackets to your Muji socks, the amount of space from these closets and drawers will always be enough. Connected to the master bedroom, this toilet is coated with green tiles, a great sight for your tired eyes. This spacious and newly furnished kitchen has all the equipment needed to whip up a full meal.

Located on a quiet residential street just 100 metres (328 feet) from the famous Arno River and 100 metres (328 feet) from the Piazza Santa Croce, this apartment is also only 200 metres (656 feet) from the famous Piazza della Signoria, right in the heart of Florence. Enter this cosy and warm apartment and you will instantly feel at home. Don’t worry about feeling bored at night when you can’t sleep; just look up and admire the intricately designed high ceilings. Also, the pictures hanging on the wall give the space a very chilled out and relaxing vibe, making anyone who enters feel at ease. The hosts even generously leave a bottle of wine and some snacks for guests. Have a few sips of Italian red wine on this queen-sized bed and just enjoy the moment. If two is company, three’s a party! Now you never have to worry about three people squeezing into one bed when travelling with your besties or as a couple with a child. Just hop onto this sofa bed, located in the corner of the room near the dining table. Have a cup of coffee and a freshly baked cornetto (Italian pastry) at this dining table, comfortable for four, while feeling the natural rays of sunlight fall onto your skin. The bright and vibrant colours are enough to cheer anyone up after a stressful day, and the lovely kitchen can make anyone happy by just being in it. The bathroom is spacious and sparkling clean, big enough to fit two people who are rushing to get ready in the morning.
Located on the second floor of the building, there is no elevator access to the apartment’s level. It may not be suitable for people with mobility difficulties.
