Visited and reviewed by our Team

We get a lot of requests for recommendations, often based on quite specific needs, such as a family traveling with small children looking for a B&B or another wanting to stay in a self catering apartment within easy to reach of all of the main attractions or even couples looking for the perfect honeymoon hotel or luxurious villa for their destination wedding venue. Sometimes its just a case of getting some feedback on the different areas of Florence and how they best respond to your needs.  And sometimes we know that you are just looking for some personal feedback on the many choices.

Your Eyes and Ears in Florence

With our on-site experience, having lived in Tuscany & Florence for years, and keeping in mind the variety of requests and needs, the VisitFlorence Team provides in-depth reviews, independent observations, and interviews of a select group of accommodations. The objective is to get to know the owners and share our impressions, making suggestions as to who would find each place interesting and why!

We speak directly with the owners and those who work in close daily contact with guests, hearing and experiencing the passion they put into their hospitality and the work they do. Our aim is to introduce some of the vacation villa rentals and holiday homes or farmhouses to you as you are searching for and considering which is the perfect place to stay at during your time in Florence - helping you book a place feeling like you already know them.

We are certain this will ensure you have a great holiday in Florence!
