Florence’s hospitality scene has been revolutionized in the last ten years due to multi-million dollar investments by international giants.

The leading examples of innovative student housing in Florence are places such as Camplus and The Student Hotel, and daring multiuse complexes like Manifattura Tabacchi, but many hospitality businesses have a vibe (we’re thinking of 25hours Hotel Piazza San Paolino) that can be found in some of the coolest metropolises in Europe.

Florence also has a plethora of hotels, B&Bs and restaurants with a more traditional flavor, which means that the city’s hospitality scene is varied and original.
