Cheap Holiday Apartments in Florence by:Elena Angelillo
Finding the right accommodation for your Italian vacation has a big impact on how much you will enjoy your trip. Just about everyone has either had a personal experience or a friend has had an experience where accommodations not being as expected or being misrepresented entirely have turned what could have been an idyllic trip into a nightmare. Stories of inadequate sleeping accommodations, maybe it could sleep four, but four children under the age of four, not four actual adults. Or locations where the nearest thing to your convenient, centrally-located lodging is recycling center. All of these situations can be avoided. You can have idyllic vacations where you do not need a chiropractic adjustment when you return to recover from your trip. Cities like Florence that cater to tourists year-round are havens from these types of problems.
The age of the city, the way everything was constructed within the enormous wall, which remains standing in many parts of the city and the focus on tourism all allow you to find accommodations that will make your vacation unforgettable. In Florence, apartments are everywhere, and highly concentrated in the historical center where most travelers want to be. As long as the apartment you find is within the confines of the wall, you are within walking distance to virtually everything you could want or need. The number of apartments for rent in Florence fluctuates throughout the year because of the high number of students in the city, with availability increasing after the end of May. Florence apartment booking increases significantly as you enter the later part of the spring season, so booking ahead is important for ensuring an apartment that meets all of your needs.
A few things you will want to consider when you are looking at the apartments are the actual location, number of people that can comfortably sleep in the apartment, presence of a kitchen and presence of an elevator. For most agencies in Florence, apartment booking is as common as drinking a cup of coffee and they are able to answer all of your questions in a matter of minutes. The variety of Florence apartments that are available will meet the needs of just about any group imaginable. Whether you are using the city as a travel base to explore all the beauty of Tuscany and want to be within a few minutes walk of the train station or you want to see every sculpture and painting the city offers and have an evening view of the river; you can find a cheap apartment in Florence that will give you what you need.
Making sure that all of your questions are answered, and hopefully being asked questions by an agent trying to accommodate you in the best manner will send you home with a smile on your face and a desire to return. Arranging to be on the lower floors if five flights of stairs at the end of the day are not something you look forward to or having a well-stocked kitchen at your disposal if you would like to experiment with some of the local cuisine and being surrounded by great restaurants, art and scenery will ensure the type of vacation you will not be able to stop talking about.
