Hotel seasons

Hotels in Florence tend to be busy all year long, though the official high season is from April through September, and things peak out in July and August. The better located and popular places do book up early in summer, so book ahead. During the off season you can get some good bargains at some of the fancy places, unless there is something special going on in the city.

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. This is also the best city to use as a hub, so you can consider the cheap day trips from Florence as well.

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. Florence is also a great base for a visit to Cinque Terre, which doesn’t have to be expensive.
