| 5 min read

Florence is the capital of Italy’s Tuscany region and attracts millions of tourists each year. Considered the birthplace of the Renaissance, it’s known for its art and architecture. Popular places include the Duomo, the Uffizi Gallery, and the Ponte Vecchio Bridge. To help you plan your trip, we’ve picked out our top 10 Vrbo vacation rentals.

1. Romantic terraced apartment with views of the Duomo (from USD 100)

First on our list is this romantic terraced apartment, which overlooks the Duomo. It’s located in the historic centre of Florence, and all of the tourist attractions are within walking distance. You’ll be just a few steps from the Piazza del Signoria and the Duomo, and many local shops and restaurants are right outside the apartment’s door.

The apartment is on the third floor of a house and is split across two levels. Downstairs is the living room, one bedroom, the bathroom, and the beautiful terrace. Upstairs is the kitchen, dining room, and the second bedroom. The apartment is fitted with all you’ll need and then some. The kitchen is fully functional, the apartment has AC and the hosts even provide you with a computer and printer.

Do note that there are 76 steps you have to climb to enter the apartment (there is no lift). But when you sit on the terrace with a glass of wine and gaze at the Duomo, you’ll forget all about them!

8. Luxury apartment at the Duomo (from USD 193)

This luxury apartment sits in a building that dates back to the Renaissance period, and while it has been renovated in recent years, it does retain some historic elements. The decor incorporates Italian and international design. For example, the walnut furniture is a modern interpretation of classic Tuscan style, and artwork decorates the walls.

There are actually two apartments to choose from within this building: one that accommodates up to six people and one that accommodates three people. Both apartments are fully equipped, so you’ll feel at home in either one.

You’ll be walking distance from everything in Florence, so whether you’ve got a smaller or larger group, you’ll be moments away from fun in Florence!
