How do I find a place to live in Florence?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"One of the best ways to find a place to live in Florence is to search online for rental listings. Websites such as Airbnb, HomeAway, and Booking.com offer a variety of rental options in the city. Additionally, there are many local real estate agencies that specialize in renting out apartments and houses in Florence. You can also look for postings on local classifieds websites such as Craigslist or Kijiji. Finally, you can also ask around in the local community for recommendations on rental properties," explained one person living in Florence, Italy.

"I researched a year before moving on the Internet and found apartmentsflorence.com who skyped with me from Florence. Lorenzo the owner described many different options and I felt very comfortable making the decision which apartment to rent before I moved. Took care of the first months rent online, very efficient," said one expat in Florence.
