Florence B and B recommendations

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be visiting Florence for the first time September 25 - October 1, 2014. We know an apartment would be less expensive than a b and b but we prefer the opportunity to interact with others in a b and b environment. The choices are overwhelming thus my request to fodorites for guidance.

Our preferences include being in a neighborhood where there are restaurants supported by locals along with bakeries, cafes, and shops. Easy walking access (10-15 minutes) to the major tourist sites of Florence. The budget is 90-125€ per room per night including breakfast. Naturally we want the moon with a lovely terrace, balcony, and garden as well as gracious proprietors.... Not likely but dreaming is as important as facing reality.

Thus the questions.

1. Which neighborhood would you recommend we consider for our stay.
2. Which B and B would you recommend within our budget constraints.

Truthfully, I need more help selecting the neighborhood more than the accommodation.

THANK YOU for any positive suggestions you can share.

Happy travels in 2014 for all

Julie
