Traces of the ancient Renaissance era still lives on in the urban footsteps of Florence. Traverse down the narrow streets that have browned with age, creating a feeling of elegant nostalgia about the medieval communes from the past.

The buildings here have fought their own wars, seen their fair share of bloodshed, and have lived with their own stories to tell; you just need to look in the right places, and history will unfold in front of your eyes.

To properly appreciate the thriving history here, complete your vacation by staying in one of these five charming Florence HomeAway vacation rentals that are bound to steal your heart away:

1. Romantic terrace by Piazza del Duomo (from 100 USD)

Located in the historical district of town, live out your dream of living like a local here. Filled with traces of ancient Florence, the paintings plastered all around the house reflect the traditional art styles used during the Renaissance period.

Spend your lazy Sunday afternoons browsing through the host’s personal collection of books, or pay a visit to the local craft shops downstairs if you want a closer look at how old styles merge with contemporary mediums to form the many artworks that we know of today.

Make yourself an ice cold mocha for dessert with the coffee machine, and whip up a sizzling plate of pancakes or some toast with your favourite spreads in the fridge.

If the summer heat is making you drowsy, head upstairs for an afternoon siesta on the soft double beds. Lined with elegantly sewn covers, sleep like royalty under the silver sheets with the air-conditioning on full blast.
