TITLE: The Best Hotels in Florence

Florence is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Italy. The place is one of the most romantic places and is extremely popular, especially amongst those going for a honeymoon. The excellent weather, brilliant locales and the cooperative locals add to its charm, which it displays in a number of other ways. However, when it comes to economical accommodation, the real challenge lies in finding an accommodation, which offers low rates, without compromising too much on the quality.

When visiting Florence, it is doubtful you will not hear about <b>Il Duomo</b>, which is one of Florence's most popular sites. The cathedral is a great chance to experience some of the many pieces of gothic architecture which are found within Florence and is a true piece of beauty on both its interior and exterior. Consecrated in 1436 and with the ability to hold up to 20,000 people, the cathedral's exterior is made up of green, pink and white marble and includes many elaborate doors and statues.

When travelling, it is important to consider your options of where to stay.  Florence has many hotels on offer for everyone's budget; there are cheaper hotels in Florence, which are usually on the outskirts and more expensive accommodation in the city centre. If you would prefer to stay in a quieter part and travel into the city centre when you want to, then there are holiday cottages available for booking that are situated in little villages outside of the city in the countryside.
