House and pet sitting in Florence

Do your perfect trips involve art, culture and fine dining? Then, Florence is the city for you! The capital of Tuscany was the epicentre of the Renaissance movement, and today, its streets still have a unique, artistic energy. See it for yourself when you go house and pet sitting in Florence.

Dog or cat sitting in Florence allows you to see this Italian city like a local. You'll enjoy free accommodation, staying in a real home and looking after sweet cats or adorable dogs while their owners are away. When you're not curled up on the couch enjoying some kitty cuddles or puppy love, you'll get to explore Florence, discovering the city for yourself.

Taking Fido for walkies

Dog sitting in Florence is a dream come true. Italy is a nation of dog lovers, and you'll be pleased to discover that Fido can accompany you on your daily outings. Want to indulge in delicious local cuisine? You're in luck! Just sit on a terrace and make sure your four-legged friend is willing to stay calm beside you. Dogs are also welcome on buses! If you want some off-leash fun, head for the Parco delle Cascine or Ponte Rosso, where dogs love to frolic in the big green spaces.

Soak up the culture

No trip to Florence would be complete without enjoying some of the world's most famous artworks. Your Florence pet sitting trip should give you enough time to slip away and admire some true masterpieces. Visit the Accademia Gallery to see Michelangelo's David, and the Uffizi Gallery for Boticelli's Birth of Venus. If you're a true art lover, you’ll love wandering around these galleries, admiring masterpieces by Da Vinci, Rembrandt, Caravaggio and more.

Cross the river, Renaissance-style!

The River Arno runs right through the centre of Florence, and there are many bridges that cross it. None are as iconic as the Ponte Vecchio, though. This medieval stone bridge is noted for the shops that line it. Once, bridges all across Europe were cluttered with shops, but now, the Ponte Vecchio is one of the last that remains. When dog or cat sitting in Florence, take a break and wander across the bridge. Maybe even pick up a souvenir or two along the way!

Take a stroll through historic Florence

While pet sitting in Florence, you'll find remarkable old buildings, each with a story to tell. Pay a visit to the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, distinguishable by its iconic red dome that can be seen from all over the city. Stop by the Palazzo Vecchio, a 13th-century palace that is now the town hall. Check out the Basilica of San Lorenzo, and look out for the Medici Chapels, the final resting place of Florence's most powerful dynasty. Many of the tombs are decorated with stunning Michelangelo artworks.
