Deciding on where to stay in Florence on a budget? First, let’s be perfectly clear. Florence on a budget is hard, and cheap accommodation is not bountiful. Why?
Because Firenze is one of Italy’s most popular tourist destinations, and rightfully so! It’s home to countless architectural and artistic masterpieces, historic buildings and landmarks built thousands of years ago, and some of the best Italian restaurants in Italy. To top it all off, the entire city looks how you imagine it would during its prime years that gave birth to the Renaissance.
All that being said, you can bet Florence is expensive, and you can bet that it is absolutely flooded with tourists! The perfect way to get around both of these downfalls is renting an AirBnB. The prices are half the cost of staying in a hotel, and the experience is 100 times more authentic than pricey tourist trap accommodation.
When visiting Florence, I stayed at THIS amazing AirBnB, and it truly made my trip! Not only was it super affordable and conveniently located, it offered a perfect escape from the massive tourist crowds and allowed me to experience living like a true Firenze local. We’d open our windows to the sounds of our neighbors speaking Italian and the most delicious smells of them cooking spaghetti at dinner time. Florence itself is a spectacular city, but this accommodation made it even better!!
