MumAbroad Florence & Tuscany

 

Tuscany is a region in central Italy that stretches from the Apennines to the Tyrrhenian Sea. Tuscany for families is wonderfully varied: sandy beaches on the Etruscan Coast and the island of Elba, some of the world’s most recognizable Renaissance art and architecture in Florence, the region’s capital, beautiful landscapes and nature trails to explore, traditional pastimes to learn about and simple pasta, pizza and gelato make for family-friendly dining.

Florence is the region’s capital and one of Italy’s most fascinating places to live. With around 400,000 inhabitants , its residents are said to speak the purest Italian language. Florence also boasts some of the most amazing architecture in Italy and, if you love exploring, the landscape is stunning.

When living in Florence as is the case of anywhere in Italy, you can be assured of great wine and amazing food. Florence is a family-friendly dining city where you can easily find pizza and gelato. You can also easily travel within Florence by boat as most of the city in surrounded by water. Cars are not normally allowed in the city so many people get around by foot or by bus. Enjoying your vanilla ice cream as you walk along the Arno River and losing yourself in the small beautiful streets could become part of your daily routine!

The tricky part about living in Florence is usually finding an accommodation. The city centre is relatively small and many apartments are rented by tourists. An easy way to find a room for rent in Florence is HousingAnywhere, an online site that is dedicated to affordable accommodation that suits everyone’s requirements.. They offer both furnished and unfurnished rooms or apartments.
