One of the biggest Italy tips we share with guests trying to decide when to visit Italy is that Florence is the perfect size to enjoy during the winter. Even with cooler temps, when you’re staying right in the historic center you’re never very far from world-class museums like the Uffizi or one of the many smaller museums and hidden gems in Florence. It is a city so rich with history, beauty and tempting restaurants, and there’s no better time to enjoy an in-depth visit (the best kind!) than during the winter months. Looking for a cozy and inviting place to stay? Here are some of our top choices for a winter escape in Florence this year!
Set on a historic street right between the Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi museum, our Concerto, Amore and Allegro apartments are all beautifully remodeled and decorated with a designer’s touch. It doesn’t get more central than this! In moments you’ll be strolling along the Arno or walking over the Ponte Vecchio. You’re just minutes from the entrance to the Uffizi while the Piazza della Signoria and Duomo are just a short walk away. Even better, you can enjoy beautiful views from each one of the apartments over the rooftops of Florence.
Settle in to a stay surrounded by history and style at the stunning two-bedroom, two-bathroom Concerto apartment in Florence. The decor is a lovely blend of contemporary comfort and antique touches that perfectly embodies Florentine style. The comfy L-shaped sofa and additional seating make the living room an appealing spot for catching up with family and friends or simply relaxing after a day of sightseeing.
Step outside to enjoy 180-degree views over the rooftops of Florence and the Duomo from the long wrap around balcony. While the outdoor relax space and dining area are especially lovely in the warmer months, you’ll love it just as much in the winter. There’s nothing like stepping out and seeing Florence stretch out before your eyes. At night, you’ll have a view of Brunelleschi’s dome and Giotto’s bell tower of the Duomo beautifully lit up.

For sweeping views over Florence that capture the heart any time of the year, enjoy a stay at our two-bedroom, two-bathroom Amore apartment. Take in gorgeous views of the Duomo in one direction and then walk around to the other side of the terrace to see the hills of Fiesole and the Forte di Belvedere. These remarkable views become the backdrop to a marvelous stay as you can admire them also from the living room and even the kitchen!
You might even find yourself inspired by the view to pursue an artful adventure in Florence during your stay. With a well-designed open plan living room with dining area and kitchen nearby and two beautifully decorated bedrooms, you’ll feel right at home at Amore.

For Florentine charm with a fantastic central location, the two-bedroom, two-bathroom Allegro apartment is the perfect choice! Elegantly designed and beautifully appointed, the Allegro is a welcoming home away from home after full days of sightseeing, dining and shopping. If you’re planning a larger family vacation or reunion in Florence, the Allegro is conveniently located in the same building as the Concerto and Amore. Book all three apartments for family time together along with comfortable private spaces and stunning views from each terrace.
The Concerto, Amore and Allegro apartments are located in a building that was constructed around a historic medieval tower – the Torre Lambertesca. The building’s elevator even runs up the tower! Surrounding the apartments, you’ll also see other impressive medieval towers, which makes the view even more unique.
Enjoy a remarkable location and view even closer to the Ponte Vecchio from the beautiful two-bedroom, two-bathroom Memoria apartment. Our guests rave about the views, looking out over the famous Vasari Corridor over the Ponte Vecchio bridge and the colorful buildings along the Arno. Even better, you’ll enjoy this view from the living room and its private terrace as well as from the dining room and both bedrooms. The Ponte Vecchio is so close you’ll feel like you can reach out and touch it!
