Accommodation in Florence
You have various possibilities to find accommodation in Florence. The most important thing is that whatever option you choose, you try to book as early as possible! This will ensure that a) you have more places to choose from, b) you pay less.
You can use one of the various aggregator websites to find the right accommodation for your specific needs and circumstances. For example, Booking or Google Travel. Pro tip: after you have found a place that you would like to book through Booking, you can go to the official website of the stay, as there you might find cheaper prices.
In Italy, a very common way of finding stays is in Bed & Breakfasts (B&Bs). These are often private persons that make their place or one of their properties available, and generally also provide breakfast. It is an in-between hotels and Airbnbs. Some hosts are truly lovely people that will also help you with any questions you might have and that can give awesome advice. You can find B&B’s, for example, through Booking or through Google Travel.
Hostels are a great way of exploring a city and meeting new people. You can find a wide range of them through Booking and Google Travel. In relation to this option, please be aware that we will make a WhatsApp group available to the participants that have been definitively selected. This can allow you to book, for example, a big room in a hostel together.
