Florence Apartments

If you’re looking for an apartment in Florence, it may be difficult to find a great fit for your needs.  Consider the following when renting apartments in Tuscany.

Choose Your Location

The choices within Tuscany are widespread.  You can choose to stay in the hustle and bustle of Florence, or the outlying region in the country which is much more peaceful and relaxed.

Suburb life is a great combination of both cultures.  You can check out the fresh farmer’s markets and still be within reach of the heart of Florence.

Price

According to budget professionals, you don’t want your rent to exceed a third of your monthly income. Consider your price and the lifestyle you live before you choose a place.  In addition, if you are relocating from outside the area, consider the currency conversion when you budget your apartment.

Space

How much space will you need?  Is it just you, your family, or roommates?  How much space do you need to be comfortable in your apartment?  Do you have separate living quarters so you don’t drive each other crazy?

Parking

If you have a auto in Florence, you’ll need to find parking for it.  It’s not always easy to come by in the busy areas of the city.  Many apartments have additional parking available for a price.  However, we recommend that you avoid having a vehicle unless you travel all the time.

Pets

Pet laws are varied within Florence.  You should check with your landlord and the city ordinances before bringing your pet with you into the apartment.

Amenities

Laundry, appliances and utilities should be offered by the apartment that you stay in.  If laundry is not provided, make sure you have access to a laundering facility nearby.  Also, for short term stays, there may not be enough appliances.  If you’re out in Tuscany, make sure that they at least have some amenities!
