Florence is the heart of Tuscany and on every itinerary of those touring around Italy. The city center is rather compact so it’s easy to get around and see all the main sights in just 2 or 3 days if you are rushed.

Fortunately, Florence isn’t quite as expensive as Rome or Venice, though hotels with central locations can be pricey here as well, especially during summer. There are quite a few hostels in Florence as well, and private rooms in some of those are good alternatives for budget travelers.

The main attractions are reasonably priced, though especially for the Uffizi it’s advised to book online in advance for an extra fee to be sure you’ll actually get in. Budget travelers should have a look at our Florence cheap travel tips on how to get the most out of your visit while spending the least.

Food and drinks run the gamut in prices, with quite a few budget options available, though most of the classic Tuscan cooking does get expensive in the touristy places.
